33 2 Kids Working on Me - Weston, FL

I was debating on sharing my experience but...

I was debating on sharing my experience but honestly reading all you ladies reviews have been so helpful and informative that I'd be remiss to not share some of my experiences. I am a 33 year old mother of 2. I decided to do lipo on my abdomen, love handled and bra roll (instead of a tummy tuck). My doctor and attendees were & still are amazing. The procedure was pretty much pain free. I have the same tightness and lumps that I've read about. But what I wanted to share was.... my Hitachi magic which I normally as an "intimate companion" now doubles as a therapy massage at night. After I shower at night I rub down with almond oil and use it. It really relieves the tightness and loosens the lumps. I try to get to my Dr to do at least 2 massages a week but this had become a nightly regime for me.

Hope this is helpful. Talk to you ladies soon! #HappyShaping

Shaping up beautifully

Tomorrow makes 3 weeks... My waist is very small. Which is exciting, it's still very hard and I'm trying to find the perfect board to help with abdomen smoothness. My first garment is already too large and I'm considering just wearing a corset...anyone had any experience with just a corset after abdomen lipo... Also I'm finding that I am a sleep nudist... LOL I go to sleep in my garment and board and wake up naked... should I be concern about being out of this garment unconsciously for a few hours at night....? I'm concerned, it's happened about 3 times

wisdom teeth foolishness

I am a little over 1 month in (procedure date 4/25/14) And feeling great must of my lumps have softened. Even my stretch marks seem to be diminishing... I'm using pure Shea butter on my abdomen 4 times a day and hand massaging... there is still significant numbness but overall I seem slimmer....
Anyway this weekend my right jaw swole up and I had to get my wisdom teeth pulled... so now on top of my slightly stiff midsection I have a sore mouth and restricted diet... should I be concerned with weight fluctuation... anybody besides me dealing with such randomness???

Fighting the urge to measure...

After having all 4 wisdom teeth pulled on Tuesday evening can I honestly say screw a compression garment, screw a squeem, screw a corset I can't even fathom wearing them I'm so uncomfortable right now. But I'm trying to wear it. I know it's important for my results that I'm consistent... but sheesh...

Anyway although I notice a slight change with the garment I'm fighting the urge to really measure my waist. Before my procedure my meaaurements 34-34-43.... I don't want to be discouraged if there isn't much difference so I'm holding off on measuring... It's hard though I feel like the measuring tape is calling me LOL.

QUESTION: what did you ladies use to aid in scare healing? I'm mixing vitamin E and pure shea butter but I'm open to suggestions... I'm hoping it will help my stretch marks fade as well... please share.

abdominal board

Since I opted for lipo sculpting instead of a TT my Dr was concerned that my stomach would have some sagging & for this reason he suggested I wear my CG for at least 8 weeks... I've found that because I sit for 6-8 hours a day at work my CG was bending & folding after doing some research I purchased a abdominal board. I've included a picture maybe it will help someone else. I purchased mine from a local boutique that specialized in cinchers and compression garments... she offered 2 or 3 different styles...

Itchy

6 weeks PO and I'm super itchy when I take off my garment... it's weird I just want to scratch it all away... it could be from the meds from my wisdom tooth extraction... it's super annoying any no creams are working... this is such a mixed up mess...
