I had my smartlipo procedure done on Thursday, Aug 28th at 7:00am. Let me tell you, I was scared to death. My first mistake was watching a video on utube so that was all that I could think about when I got there. First I put on a gown, they measured me, took pictures and drew the guidelines on me. Then I got two shots. One was to relax me and I guess it really worked because the next thing I remember is them walking me to the bathroom, then walking me to the or room. I layed down, they covered me from head to toe and left only my belly showing. Ever so often they would ask if I was ok and I was. They were doing something that felt like a meat grinder rolling up and down my belly but there was no pain.....The next thing I knew was my husband waking me up at home, in my own bed. Honestly the only thing that hurt were the two shots before hand. The procedure, I slept through it. I sure thought I would be awake for the whole thing but I wasn't. Actually, my husband said I was talking but it wasn't making much sense so maybe I was awake, who knows. Awake or not, I don't remember and I didn't feel any pain so I am a happy camper. Now at home, I am sore but it's like having cuts or sunburn. The worst is the ozzing and the smell. I couldn't wait to get that thing off.
So here I am at day 3: I've removed the garment, taken a shower, put hydro peroxide on all my incisions, 6 to be exact. I thought I was only having 4 but got 6. 2 under my breast, 2 on hips, 2 on upper buttocks and 2 on lower back. I guess the last two were for the flanks. I feel great. I was able to take the garment off myself but I did it really slow and was sitting at the time. I've also put Neosporin on the incisions. Once my garment has air dryed, I will put it back on.
So far so good. I'll continue to update as I progress.
