So Much for No Pain! - Johannesburg, South Africa

Well I had it done, after so many years of wanting to have thinner inner thighs, I finally took the plung, Yesterday! 4 hours later, and awake during the entire process. The most painful bit about the proceedure was the anaesthetic injections. On a scale of 1-10 I would put them at a 6 for the 3 other areas I had done and at an 8 for the inner thighs. After that the rest of the proceedure was about a 3 on the pain scale.

After I was finished, I stood up to get changed and felt extremely light headed, and faint. Infact I did faint. But I have had this problem with prior surgeries.

Last night at home, I must say I felt good, not too sore, again I would rate the pain at a 6, and say it was similar to being punched in various areas. I took half a sleeping pill and slept well last night.

Today, as I write I am in pain. I would rate the pain as a 8. I have had 2 caesars which I would also rate a 8, and I had a tummy tuck 6 years ago, which I can say was a 10 or even highter. I am trying not to take too many pain meds because I am also feeling very dizzy and light headed.

My drainage is terribly annoying, and so far I see no improvement, infact I look bigger than when I went in. Obviously from the swelling. I will post a pic of myself and my brusing when I take the garment off

I am excited to see the changes take effect.

It has been nearly 1 week since my lipo. I am still swollen all over, but my main concern are my inner thighs, they are bigger than ever. Like balloons! I hope and pray that I am not one of the unlucky people who do not see any changes.

I am one month post op, I have noticed slight changes, but NONE on my inner thighs! Very dissappointed.

Looking at that pic I have just noticed, I can also see how the one leg looks bigger than the other

Well people have a look at my photos and tell me what you think. I am horrified with the final results. After 2 attempts at laser lipo (with the same doctor), my leg is now totally disfigured.
