After looking at a few options and aatebding a few consultations, I decided lipo was the best fit.
The procedure itself was easier than expected. I was VERY nervous as I usually am with anything medical. The staff was amazing and made it very easy. I was awake the whole time and once the numbing injections are in you don't really feel anything except pressure.
I was also amazed at how fast it was- I was there around an hour or so. After returning home I was obviously out of it and resting but for the most part ok.
The next day was the hardest- I was very sore and did not do much. Even with the pain meds I found it to be very uncomfortable.
It is now day 4 post op and I am still really swollen in my face. You have to wear the compression garment around your face all the time during recovery, which is SUPER UNCOMFORTABLE. My neck is very stiff from wearing it and sleeping is very difficult because you have to sleep upright and on your back.
The procedure itself is so much easier than the recovery. I wish more people would have written that! I do not regret this at all- I can already see result when I take the compression garmet off to shower, I just wish I would have known how uncomfortable this was before I had it done.
Will post more results as I go!
