I am 47 years old, 5'6" 150lbs. I have been unhappy with my thighs for most of my adult life, and never cosidered doing liposuction until I did some research on the newer techniques. I had my inner and outer thighs done two days ago and I am very pleased with the results. I had the procedure done using local anesthesia. The administering of the anesthesia was not painful at all. I felt a few pricks, but it was not bad at all. This took around an hour or so. The procedure itself was not painful at all and only took about 30 minutes. I was prescribed Vicodin for pain and I started taking them as soon as I arrived home and I have been taking them three times per day. The first day my incisions drained profusely. I used maxi pads and ace bandages, which helped a lot. The day after surgery the draining was minimal, so I switched to gauze to control leakage. The swelling is down and better than what I expected. I also put my compression garment on. Today I am barely leaking at all. I also tried on some clothes and I am already down one size. I am very pleased with my results and I would do it again.
Feeling really good. I am a little bit sore. I stopped taking the pain medication on day four. I still have a lot of swelling. The bruising is going away. I started feeling like myself a couple of days ago. I went to my one week appointment and the doctor said that i looked great.
