I'm 29, 5'4", 150lbs and have had weight issues most of my adult life. At one point, I was very slim, and in great shape, but 7 years and a big baby later, I've put on weight (again).
I work out, and eat right, but I can never seem to make any headway on my abdominal region. I completely lack self confidence, and had toyed with the idea of having breast implants, but I'm terrified of general anesthesia, and I probably STILL wouldn't like putting on a bathing suit.
I decided on SmartLipo, because I need some skin tightening, as little downtime as possible and NO general anesthetic!!
Holy dinah! I just got home from the procedure,...

The procedure itself was tough - the doctors said that I had a lot of adhesions, some due to previous surgery, and some due to working out a lot. It was AGONY having the tumescent solution put in.
I had 2 doctors and a nurse working on me, and they were so great at letting me have breaks when I needed breaks, and understanding how painful the process was.
Upon leaving, I was given a prescription for Vicodin and one for Percocet. I took a vicodin and I don't feel too bad right now...
Between leaving the clinic and picking up my pain pills, I leaked a TON down my shirt and pants...
I will post photos maybe tomorrow or the day after.
I'm now 24 hours out of surgery, and MAN am I ever...

This morning I was so nauseous that I almost vomited on the way to my daughter's daycare. I don't have much of an apetite (maybe a good thing), and I'm in a world of pain.
I took my compression garment off last night to change the dressings, because they had become saturated, but haven't taken it off since!
The worst is trying trying to get in and out of bed... my abs are KILLING ME!!!
I'm going to try to shower tonight and take photos, but I'm in agony right now!!
I'm now 8 days post-op, and still not thrilled...

I'm still swollen, I think... but I'm worried that this is the final result, and there's not much difference from my pre-op! I'm still taking the arnica religiously, started eating pineapple for the bromelain and I wear my compression garment for 23.5 hours a day.
I'm still bruised, one bruise in particular is really bad. Still in a lot of pain, so I'm still taking painkillers every day.

The doctors were awesome - one of them gave me his cell phone number so we could call any time with questions or concerns. They were SO understanding about the pain I was in and needing breaks.
