Abdominal Liposuction - Waco, TX

I am 37 years old. I have 2 daughters 19 & 17. I work out and eat an okay diet and still after all these years could not get rid of the baby bump.

After many years of wanting the procedure, I finally did it 04.01.11. I had drainage all day yesterday. I am swollen but as bad as I expected. I haven't had to take any pain medicines which is awesome.

I feel like I've had an intense an workout. I'm already driving and I feel great! I have checked myself in the mirror without the binder and I can already see the change! I'm so excited to see the results when the swelling goes down more!

April 8 was week one. I had my follow up Monday and the 4 stitches were removed. Dr. O'Neil was impressed with how little bruising there was. My abs were sore all week but each day gets better. This week I walked 3 times - 2 miles one day and 4 miles the other two days. I have signed up for the Susan G. Komen 5K on April 30. I could not be more pleased. The swelling hasn't gone down all the way but I am pleased with it even now. The only uncomfortable thing is the binder.


hello happyinwaco, im curious. Its been 2yrs since your procedure. Are you still loving your results. I hope so. Im interested in having the procedure as well. Frighten to death. Ive heard some bad outcomes such as picking up unwanted weight in other places
