Upcoming Tumescent Liposuction of Uppe and Lower Abdomen and Waist (Love Handles) - South Carolina

In 7 days I will be having my procedure for liposuction. I have always wanted to get this procedure done because i have never been comfortable with the extra body fat that my body has carried around my stomach and my disgusting love handles. I gave up on buying clothing and black became my favorite color. I am ready to be happy about the skin i am in. I have had a few consultations some doctors told me a tummy tuck may be a better option but i always though why cant try liposuction first and if my skin doesn't contract the way it should then i would consider tummy tuck.My procedure is May 11,2012 at 9:15am I truly cant wait to tell this belly goodbye!

Well Im back at work today, I didn't want to get out of bed but I had to come in. It wont be a problem I am istting down for 8 hours but still I would prefer to be in my bed. Well day 1 I had a lot of lumps. It looked a little disfigured then i figured out the garment they gave me was not on right it was shaping my skin very funny do I took that off I have a excellent gurtle I had bough from Walmart that shape beautifully I put that on and then put the doctors garment on under it. I massaged and massaged and all the lumps are out WHEWWWW thank goodness. I just cant wait for the swelling to go down so that I can see the final product so do you ladies want to see the photo with all the lumps????
