I went for my one of my consultations on 5/22. I decided that this was the doctor for me and that I am actually going to to get liposuction done. I am scheduled to get it done on 6/5. Which is kind of quick but I prefer it that way since I been ready for awhile to get this done. By the way just to let everyone know I am 31 years old 5'2 and 150 pds. I have had 3 kids where 2 of them I gained 50 pds with the majority of my weight being in my stomach. So far so good but I am only starting this journey.

Well I have a little bit of bad news. My finances did not come in exactly how I would have liked. So now I am only gettig my upper and lower abdomen done. That's all for now. I will write the day off.

Well its Post op day 1. But, I will tell you...

Well its Post op day 1. But, I will tell you what happened on the day I had my lipo done. I woke up got all my last minute chores done and my last minute grocery shopping done. Got there on time they were conducting another consultation at that time. After they were done I went in and got in my gown, booties and hair cap. I got to keep on my underwear which is good cause I started my period on Saturday. Well when it was time I went and laid on the table they cleaned my stomach with iodine. Then covered me with 3 different drapes. He said I would feel a shot. There was a slight sting then nothing, well then 2 more stings. One for each incision sight. Then there was a lot of tugging and pulling. My stomach was pretty numb. He worked pretty fast he was done really fast slightly over an hour. But, around the right side of my belly button started to really hurt by the end of it. I wish I could have took another pain pill as soon as it was done. Although it would have been to early. My best friend brought me home and my whole belly button area hurt all the way till I got home. Then I took my medicine. I was clear headed stayed in my recliner and really didnt move until I had to go to the restroom. Which was about every 30 min. The worst part was bending down and to sit up or to lay down and get up from layind down. Which is true for today also. Only one incision sight leaked bad and I would change it when I went to the restroom. I layed down at 830 took another pain pill and watched a recorded program on tv then fell asleepl

I woke up at 3:30 went to the restroom ate some crackers then went back to sleep and noticed I could roll on my side so I fell asleep on my side.

Now onto today. I woke up let the dog out to use the restroom. My ribs and right above my hips feel bruised even though they are not and there's a lot of tightness in my mid belly but it does not hurt so I don't mind it. But, Ive walked around outside for about a half mile and got up ate some pineapple and some sliced ham. Went to the restroom the site that was leaking has stopped. So I'm not draining anymore. So, i am drinking a lot of water to keep some of the swelling down. Which has started since the minute I got of the table. I am when my stomach feels really hot putting ice packs on it. I also am taking bromalin twice a day to help w the swelling. I also lay with my feet elevated. Everything is very manageable pain wise. Like I said earlier all the pain is from getting up to stand or to sit or lay back down.

Ok. well its been about 9 days pre-op. I have...

Ok. well its been about 9 days pre-op. I have had a total of 3 small light bruises. Walked hunched over for a week. The pain on the side of my belly button turned out to be a knot and all I had to do is rub it out. I went for my follow up at a week. I was smaller than he expected at 1 week. So he expects excellent results at 3 month check up. The scaring is even healing real well. I hope everyone gets the results I have had. I'll post an after pick as soon as I can get sometime to myself.

Can not rate after-care until I get the procedure done. The rest was great. I did have to wait a little bit until I was seen. This was probably more due to I was the first person of the day then anything.
