Abdominal Liposuction Painful and Rough but Worth It - Tampa, FL

I decided to get lipo after having 2 kids. I was left with a diastolic separation at the top of my tummy and a pooch that I really have always had. I went for the procedure and was expecting to just feel pain with shots but after administering the lidocane when they cut the openings, I felt that crap. I felt it the whole time. It was tolerable but very painful. It burned and the poking stuck me. There was also an uncomfortable rubbing against my bones. I was shocked! I had vaser with tumescent lipo. I could feel the heat when it went into my stomach. But after I changed the bandage the first time and saw the results....I would do it again!!! OMG. It was life changing to see that stomach gone once and for all..

A little bit more about me...I was told by several plastic surgeons that I should have a full tummy tuck, but after lots of consult and thinking, I decided that I shouldnt do it. I didnt want to go under such an invasive procedure. They all said I wouldnt have the results I want unless I did it but after day one...I am sooo happy. I think I am going to be fine.

I am still very happy. Everyday I take off the garment I am excited to see my flat tummy. I pray it stays this way!!

I love the Marena garment except my thighs are big so it is tight around there.

I am 5'7" and I weight 163. It is the best thing I have done in my life. I keep looking at my flat stomach and I am sooo happy. I went running today for the first time and I was excited about the idea of diet and more weight loss on my own. This has given me so much motivation. I hated working out, losing weight and still having that belly. It's a miracle!! And no big scar from tummy tuck!! I was scared my skin wouldnt go back because of how long I have had a belly but it is tightening up really good. I am using an all natural skin oil to make sure and pure vitamin E oil.

See the Marena garment. It is a really great garment. the only downside is the hooks dig into my sides so I added gauze padding before putting on so I dont get the sores any more. It is nice and tight but doesnt cut my air. The legs are tight for me but I have big thighs.

Ok so it has been 39 days and boy am I glad I did this. I love my tummy. I keep thinking its going to come back. I am overjoyed. I ate a lot the first 2 weeks and went on a serious binge. I got really worried that I would undo what I did so I went on a cleanse. I feel much better. I will come of the cleanse in about 5 to 10 days. Then eating really healthy. I still think though that I need to do my flanks because I didnt do that. Then watch out!!!
Dr. Caroline Lomboy (Adora Clinic)

I felt my doctor was excellent but I really didnt see her much. Nor did she herself call me when the procedure was done. I basically spoke to a sales person first, then an assistant then the doctor. I saw the doctor at my surgery and then the assistant called me. I have an appointment with the doctor for post op but I felt like the doctor didnt listen to me as an individual. She sort of just spouted off things that she says to most patients.
