Liposuction Calves, Ankles and Knees - Boca Raton, FL

I am 5'3 123 pounds, I have a very tiny upper body which paired oddly with my heavy lower legs. When the nurse measured my mid calf I was 13". I absolutely hated wearing skirts/dresses since I looked so oddly proportioned. I consulted with Dr. Shuster and he made me feel very comfortable about the procedure. I must admit after reading all of the reviews on the lower legs over the course of my research for several years I was freaked out. Every review makes this procedure sound extremely painful with a lot of down time.

Immediately after surgery I was able to walk out of the car and into my building with ease. I felt mild pain maybe due to the hydrocodine I was prescribed. I was also given a muscle relaxer which had me feeling at ease and allowed me to sleep on and off all day. I made sure to keep off my feet with the exception of going to the restroom as well as keep my feet elevated as instructed.

After a great 2nd day follow up I felt well enough to go shopping at the mall and out to lunch with my girlfriend. I did consult with Dr Shuster prior to doing so at my consultation. During the consult they removed my bandages and replaced them with a compression garment up to my knees. This was actually the most painful part , pulling them over my legs really hurt. Once on I again felt mild discomfort similar to having a bruise. I am already seeing a difference from my ankle up to mid calf after that it is still swollen but I can tell Im very happy with the procedure.

I was told I would see the most benefits after 1 month, I will try to update at that time.

Day 8

So in my last review I made mention that I had seen immediate results. This faded fast due to a lot of swelling that came in on day 3 and day 4 was the bruising. I was pretty badly bruised as expected. About the pain I really have to say it was really minimal and still is. Honestly I could have gone back to a desk job the day after. This shocked me. I am now currently day 8 and I've been back to work and in heels for 3 days. Something really random happened around day 4 I had a crazy migraine , I have never experienced this kind of headache. Nothing made it go away it eventually faded but I just kind of wrote it off as something odd. I did Google the tingling of my legs I have recently been experiencing and found it was completely normal and came across someone else's migraine after liposuction post. Now I see I'm not alone maybe it had to do with the shock from surgery idk but I'm curious if many others experience this as a lot of dr's chimed in that this is not common.

I accidentally deleted my before pics I will try to find more and upload as well as current pic soon.

The office staff was extremely nice. They even allowed my girlfriend to come back with me until I went down for surgery to make sure I felt secure. The Dr. was as nice as could be and very professional.
