I'm three days into recovery from Lipo to my stomach, back and waist. I also had fat transferred to my hips and buttocks.
I have not had any adverse reaction to the surgery and I'm feeling surprisingly well considering that I've heard some horror stories. Other than some soreness and itchy tinglingly, I havent felt much pain. I have been taking my medication religiously as indicated.
I recommend purchasing two garments. The 1st day I drained alot and it got all stained and nasty. You are able to chg quickly after 48 hours and believe me, you'll want to. I am looking forward to tomorrow since I'll finally be able to take a full shower instead of sponge baths..thanks to all the family and friends who offered to wash my behind, thankfully it wasnt necessary!!!
Tuesday is my 1st post-op visit, where I hope my stitces will be removed. I am looking forward to the seeing the final results although as of right now I'm happy with what I see. The doctor was fine although I only heard from his secretary and it was two days after the surgery.
I will say that St. Elizabeth's where the procedure was done called the very next day to see how I was doing and to make sure I was treatly nicely, which I was.
