I recently decided to go through with laser lipo. I am a mother of one and have been unable to rid myself of "the pooch" with diet and exercise for awhile now. I decided to go with sonobello after meeting with their consultant who said that they were not only willing to just do the one section but they thought it would be a waste to do the upper. Originally I had planned to go to a clinic who would only do both sections and charged more.
On the day of the procedure I ended up having to wait for an hour or so because they were running behind but they did keep me updated. Once I was taken back to the prep room I was marked up and given anxiety medication, my antibiotic and an anti nausea pill. I was not given any pain meds until I was on the surgical table at which point they injected me with Demerol. I was pretty sleepy throughout the surgery but there was no way I could have slept with all the tugging and pulling I felt. I didn't feel a whole lot pain except around the upper half of the lower abdomen. For some reason I felt like I was being jabbed in my rib a couple times. When everything had been suctioned out I was bundled up, dressed and set in a wheel chair.
Th first night I slept alot and only ended up changing my pads once. By the next morning I stopped taking controlled pain meds and stuck to OTC meds. By the second day I was moving around but still sore.
Now at day 11 and I feel pretty good. My stomach is still tender in some areas and I am noticing more hardness and lumps and bumps. Hopefully they subside with time. Honestly I think I am more puffy or swollen now than I was the night of the surgery which is kind of a bummer. I'm trying to remain optimistic and I am pleased that my stomach for the most part now.
