I had a wonderful doctor, he completely understood what I was trying to achieve. Infect he put the fat in the sides of my butt at no extra charge, I also had extra breast axillary tissue removed from my underarms and a much reduced cost.
I was particular about the incision being low because I wear bikinis, I got that and a very straight neat line with a small vertical incision. Recovery was great as can be I suppose, but uncomfortable I must admit, I had my surgery on the 21st of July 2011, so just 3 weeks post op.
I took arnica and post op multi vitamins which helped a lot! Only concern is the swelling on my sides, I was hoping for a small waist as I have a boyish figure. I hope the swelling goes down ad I can have some kind of waist at least! Still not standing totally upright, hopefully by week 4 or 5.
Overall very happy and happier when the swelling subsides.
