I previously wrote about my backlift not being to my satisfaction. I was trying to stay positive regarding my results and its outcome. However, I'm just being real about my feelings even though I knew that nothing is 100% and we have no guarantees.
After speaking to Campos I knew he sincerely done all that he could. He expressed (again) how difficult my case was being that I had a lot of scar tissue from previously getting aggressive lipo on my back. He also explained how the incisions are made and there would not be 100%. If he was to make a second incision vertically that would possibly make the drastic change Im looking for. But again, because of the scar tissues and the infection I got during my last surgery (with a different surgeon) he really was concerned about my well being. He said the tissue was very hard and severely damaged. Still in all, he suggested a possible revision with the vertical incision but suggest waiting. He also gave me two more options of treatment for the damaged tissue but prefer to wait and see the outcome once the swelling goes down. After speaking to the doctor and allowing him to fully explain what happened and how difficult everything was I truly believe he wanted to do more but my body would not allow him to do so. Even with the FG he explained that my skin was tight which made it difficult to give me as much hips as he would have liked but made every effort to put as much as possible. He said, he pushed hard to give me what I wanted but again my body gave him another problem.
Because of the over stretching of my skin with the fat he's watching me to make sure I am healing fine, which I am. He gave me 1,000cc's and yes he stretched the hell out of my butt because that’s the only pain I have. Lol… So yes I was expecting a better successful outcome on the backlift but I must remember that the doctor is not God and most importantly he took my health into consideration FIRST. I believe because he really wants to please his patients I will be totally happy in the end. I will see as time goes on. In the meantime I’m staying positive and enjoying how smooth my sides are and how much fat he was able to remove from my abdomen
My sutures will be able to come out on Monday and he removed the drain from my back. I must say, this experience is a lot different than my last. My last procedure I had to stay in TJ for 15 days due to necrosis and other side effects or complications. This time around I barely have any bruising, my pain is basically discomfort in my buttocks, I was walking on day two, and started going to the restroom without assistance on day 3. My entire healing process is much faster. I would have expected a slower healing process due to my diet was poor this time around and I was not as physically active as before.
The front desk staff Angie and Hannia has always been courteous and helpful. All my emails were returned in a timely fashion, all my questions were answered, and even though they are extremely busy I was assisted each time and never felt rushed.
The only reason why I gave a lower rating for aftercare is because the nurse who stayed overnight with me in the hospital was not bilingual and we did not see eye to eye on anything. The compassion was not there, and there were little to no effort made to try and nurse me. I wasn’t even able to talk to my mom on the phone because the phone was not plugged up in the room. Do you think anybody went and got a phone from another room so I could let my family know how I was doing? No. I woke up wanting to speak to my mom and was told by Angie that she already spoken to her and informed her of my outcome. Thank God... Anyway, I believe the nurse became angry and purposely punished me for getting out the bed and taking my own medicine. I woke up around midnight in pain and she refused to give me more meds because she had just given me a dose through my IV. I told her I cannot suffer in pain for the next 7 hours upon the doctor arrival. As soon as she got up and called the doctor in the middle of the night I took my own pain pill from my purse. Of course she was yelling at me and refused to help me get in bed. I asked her to put the cover on me and she acted as if she didn’t understand what I was saying. After asking her a third time I just proceed to get up on my own and that’s when she put the blanket on me. So...she understood what I was saying in the beginning but was trying to punish me because she was angry. Every time I asked a question it was like pulling teeth. When she didn’t want to or unable to answer my questions she became angry and making grumbling gestures and sounds. So because of the horrible experience overnight I had to drop a star for aftercare although it was the nurse who was rude and unhelpful.
