I seemed never able to lose the fat on my abdomen and thighs, but my breasts shrank and face narrowed. So I decided to go for lipo, with 100% from my dear husband. To start off, I am not obese or fat, I am actually lean, but have localised bulge on my tummy and roundness on my thighs.
I emailed the doctor and sent him photos and he said I am a good candidate for lipo. So I booked a flight to Bangkok. After a good consultation, I decided to go ahead with the procedure. I stopped eating and drinking at midnight. I was out on twilight anaesthesia. After the doctor did the markings and I felt the medication through IV, the next moment, I woke up in a comfortable hospital room. I had not much pain, but it felt slightly wet at the back. I was drowsy and very nausea, vomitted 3 times.
The doctor used a combination of tumescent and ultrasound method. He lipo'ed 1050ml of fat. Because I slept a lot after the procedure, I had problems sleeping at night, I was given dormicum and slept through the night. The second day, nurses helped me to take a shower. When my compression garment was removed, I saw a perfectly flat tummy! My thighs, especially inner thighs, look the same as before surgery and I am a little disappointed, but the nurse says its swelling and will get better.
The doctor lipo-ed also my waist and lower portion of my butt to make a nice line. The pain is manageable. I didn't take a single analgesic. It is uncomfortable to sit on the toilet, so I support my hip with my hands. My pubic area feels burnt but it's not really painful, just tenderness. Compared t the pain from breast augmentation, this is a piece of cake. I am going to be discharged from the hospital today and can walk on my own. I wore my own dress, a loose one.
