Tumescent Lipo of Upper and Lower Abs. Would Like Some Opinions - Staten Island, NY

The surgery itself wasn't so bad although I was soooooo nervous (even on a half of Valium). I cant say I felt any pain during the procedure, but the whole process is just crazy lol. It feels weird. I cant even explain how it feels. Especially if you have stretch marks, my Dr. told me that stretch marks fuse to the inner barrier of something (i forget the correct terminology) and when they numb you they have to break that all up. So it kind of feels like there is a huge rubber band moving around your belly.

Recovery was a BREEZE! and i have ZERO tolerance for pain. On my 1-10 pain scale, im giving it a 2. Period cramps are 10 times worse. The reason why im posting is because i wanted to get some opinions of my results so far. Believe me, I am very realistic when it comes to results and I am not even thinking about final ones yet. I know im still swollen. but after 6 days i notice a slight difference. I would just like to get some professional and real people opinions of my progress thus far to see if its normal and im moving along nicely, or not at all lol.

I plan to update as many pics as i can throughout my healing process. I am getting my flanks done next week and will be tracking that progress too. I had a 75 lb weight loss about 7 years ago and this is my gift to myself. Now i have to get to that gym and finish toning it all up!

No, I had local anesthesia. I am still in a lot of pain and I consider myself pretty tolerant to pain in general. It hurts to even touch the skin in most of the areas. Tylenol, Aleve, and Ibuprofen don't even make a dent in the pain. I can't take the narcotic pain killers because they make me so sick. This really, really sucks so far. :(

How are you feeling now sonshine? I had a touch up done last thursday on my upper and lower abdomin again. I had almost no pain, it just feels like a bruise to me. Did they put you under general anesthesia when you got it done? I heard that if you go under general its alot more painful. I was up during all my lipo procedures and recovery was a breeze! @ Deep Sea - did you have your procedures yet?

Oh, man. I just had my flanks, waist, and upper buttox done yesterday and I can barely move. I feel like I got hit by a Mack truck. I can't take the pain meds either because they make me sick. I'm hoping this goes away soon! :)

Any updates on your progress? I'm considering having my abdominals done alongside my flanks and outer thighs in a few weeks.

I've been doing great thanks! Yes, its getting flatter every day. I just had my flanks done today 1/13. Having the flanks done was A LOT easier then the stomach procedure wise. Recovery is also relatively painless. I had it done around 11am this morning, its 8pm now and im doing fine. I will post more progress pictures in the next few days!
