As many reviews for lower body lifts will often note that whilst results are immediate, you need to give yourself a few weeks to see the true benefits of the surgery. I was very disappointed at the beginning, but that was due to the swelling. At week 4, I'm loving my body and shape. I can only wait to get back in the gym in a couple more weeks to start re-building the muscle.
My recovery was made all that much easier by having a friend stay with me the first week after being discharged. I also recommend being as fit and healthy as possible before the operation. After about day 7, I spent more and more time out of bed and walking around every few hours.
If you're anything like me and have spent time trawling through the internet, reading every article and review on internet, do yourself a favour and meet with Dr Drielsma.
