I underwent SAL of bilateral hips & flanks, lower back, bilateral inner and anterior thighs and knees.
Four weeks later the edema is subsiding with help of a diuretic, and I'm horrified with the results. I have rippling of the outer thighs; the anterior area (biggest concern) also looks like nothing was done.
My Dr. said 17 1/4 lbs. was removed, but I honestly don't feel or see better results. Am I being premature? My surgeon's practice/credentials are reputable, but right now I don't believe in his skills. I also have breast reduction and tummy tuck scheduled with him... Help!
