Power Assisted Liposuction of Back After Tummy Tuck - Tyler, TX

I had my tummy tuck on August 20, 2010...about 5months ago and I am going to get lipo of my back on Feb 11. I'm super happy with the way my tt turned out, I just wanna get rid of the love handle fat I have hanging around the back. Luckily, I don't have a lot and the doctor can do it in office, so I am saving on the anesthesia and hospital fees...so yeah! Can't wait to see how it turns out!

Well I had the procedure done yesterday. I was scheduled for 8:30, so at 8:15 I took the two Lorazepam pills I was prescribed. When I got to the doctors office shortly after I was given a gown to change into and a warm blanket to lay on the couch with while the room was prepared. I was about to nod off when Dr. Motlagh came in and said they were ready for me. I walked across the hall to the surgical room and he marked on my back with the marker and I laid down on the "table" which looked more like a chair. They gave me a pillow and I was so drowzy I felt wonderful. He gave me the two shots and I barely felt them. After that he started the lipo and all I felt were vibrations, no discomfort at all. I was almost asleep the entire procedure. Afterwards they helped me to stand and get dressed and I was all done. I have pain pills that I'm taking now, vicodin, and I'm pretty sore today but it's not as bad as I had expected. I'm gonna take the garment off tomorrow to shower and I'll see how bruised and swollen I am. Not looking forward to that. I know it'll be better soon though.

Well I showered today. I thought I was gonna be really bruised and swollen and was nervous to see it...but it's not bad at all. Yes I am pretty swollen but barely bruised at all..there are only a few small areas. I can already tell a difference and considering the fact that I'm swollen I am super excited to see the final results...I know I'm gonna be thrilled!
