I had mine done in an ambulatory surgery center. I was supposed to stay overnight, but I wanted to go home. My PS ok'd it after I was able to walk up and down (hobble, all crunched over is more like it) the hallway and pee after the... READ COMMENT

OMG! I didn't know this was a "thing!" I lost 120lb and was a total apple shape (hence the need for tt lol). Since my TT (MR, no lipo), I have gained around 10 lbs… i swear it's all in my thighs and butt. My butt could use an extra... READ COMMENT
