28 Years Old - my Journey From cup A to C ;and a Mini Brazilian Butt Lift! - Melbourne, AU

PRE-SURGERY: contacted Dr. Lanzer through here...

PRE-SURGERY:

contacted Dr. Lanzer through here about a month prior to my scheduled date and straight away I got a reply from Brad, his assistant. Everything was so detailed, he explained everything that I needed to know. When it's medical related, he would squeeze me into Dr. Lanzer's time so I can him all the questions I want. I have met with Dr. Lanzer twice before my surgery date.

Despite reading a lot of reviews about how little time he spends with his patients, I still went ahead with him anyways. The sole reason was because he's been in the business for 20 years, it's understandable that his time is precious. But, he did spend plenty of time with me. I made sure to have all my questions in mind though, so when I saw him each time I got to the point and always get my answers. He even called me a few hours before my surgery just toreassure me everything was fine, because I started to get panicked so I sent Brad an email telling him how worried I was. I was really surprised he called me back from his cell phone.

I will write my suggestions and what you need to buy pre-surgery at the bottom of the review.

SURGERY:

My scheduled surgery is at 8am, I arrived early because I didn't sleep anyways lol. I was panicked the whole night, pacing and cleaning non stop. Once I got in, I was told to put my things away in a container, and a few minutes later Dr. Lanzer came in and we had a quick chat, he again assured me everything is fine. He made it clear though that it won't be perfect. I wanted a double DD, he said it would be too big for me. So he went ahead with 320cc and marked me on the abs for the lipo and fat transfer to the side of hips (I want the hour glass figure)

I was then asked to go to the bathroom, I texted my husband in there. Telling him it's happening!!! He wished me luck and I was scared to the point of faint. Soon enough that's I ended up being... I was laid on the surgery table/bed and I was administered with general anesthesia. So off I went, like the light.

Post-Surgery:

PAIN!!! PAIN!!! PAIN!!! As soon as I came to, I remember begging the nurse to make it stop! The pain was really intense. They gave me morphines. Soon I fell asleep. I was in and out though, despite how tired I was the pain kept waking me up. I threw up a lot. i couldn't keep anything down the whole day. I was tender all over. I finally managed to look down, I had boobs!!! Though it's not as big as I wanted it to be but there they are!!! No time for celebrations though, I was too busy distracted by the pain. Dr. Lanzer said I looked abit pale, so I was kept there till 8pm. Finally I came home.

Day 1:

Was the worst!!! The lipo makes me feel like abs are on fire!! My beasts are so sore!! I felt so weak and still kept throwing up. I had to go and meet Dr. Lanzer for post-op review at 9:45am, I wish I didn't have to go. Cause I live in an apartment, the elevator makes me sick even more. Our car park was at 7th floor, so round and round we went down. I was on the verge of throwing up the whole time. He said everything is great, he said it's better than expectations. Though My stomach looks flat, but it's still pretty swollen and lumpy to me, but it's only day 1 and he's been doing this for 20 years so I'll take his words for it :D he said my breasts "look better than most" I suppose that's a good thing too. He even took a few snap chats of my breasts too! The whole time I was thinking "he has snap chat too? My dad doesn't even know FACEBOOK! How cool!!!" :D

Day 2:

I feel a lot better today! I could move and lay down on my own, I still have problems getting up cause I can't use my abs yet. It's still very sore. I haven't thrown up since yesterday!!! So yay :D my breasts are tender but not in great pain like yesterday. It's insane how different 24 hours make.

Anyways here's a list of things you need before surgery and my suggestions:

- blood test needs to be done a week before
- an hour skype with a psychologist (just to make sure ur ready for what to come...)
- buy meds! Dr. Lanzer with prescribe you with pain killers, antibiotics and pills to stop throwing up. Buy these at least a few days before surgery. You'll need to take 2 capsules of antibiotics about 10 hours before surgery!
- buy ready to eat food! Or get someone to cook for u! You won't be able to do it urself the first 48hrs post-op.
-buy baby wipes! You won't be able to shower, trust me u won't want to anyways, so a quick wipe after bathrooms go along way!
- buy straws!!! You don't wanna get up every time u drink.
- don't forget to pack socks to the surgery! It makes a huge different! I got cold feet (literally) so it helped to stay warm.
- stack pillows on your bed the way you want before u leave for surgery, so when u come home u don't have to lift or arrange them.
- buy crackers/croissants or any dried pastry. For the first 24 hours, it's easy to keep down.

I hope this helps, also I wanna say thanks to all the nurses there. I think a few times when I was so high I called them my angels cause they took the pain away lol!! They are so lovely... Especially annie. Thank you ?? And thank you brad for making all this happened.


MORE PICS FOR LIPO SUCTION COMING SOON! (Sorry I can't get up LITERALLY cause my husband isn't home lol)

Liposuction and Mini Brazillian Butt lift UPDATE** day 3

Hello :D here's the review for lipo as promised ladies.

The fat was taken out from my lower abs, upper abs, side waist and love handles. I'm not sure how much he was able to take out, I didn't ask the dr. I will keep you updated with the amount. He then injected to the side of my hips. I already have a fair size buttocks but always lack the side shape (hour glass curve) so the fat was injected there. I can't really see the difference yet. I suspect it's not much fat was injected in. But I didn't have much fat to take out to begin with So my only hope now is to get my waist to tone down from swelling so my hips will look bigger. Right now it's just flat straight. Regardless, I'm still happy with the results. My stomach is flat and no wrinkles!! It's lumpy but I can tell its swelling and it's already subsided! I understand it's not a one off procedure to perfection, it might need corrections. Please bare in mind that ladies, cause at the end of the day, though he's extremely talented and very experienced , he can't possibly make me look like Beyoncé the next day now can he :D aim to look better, not perfect :) just know if you have chosen Dr. Lanzer, you are in good hands!

I haven't bruised yet. At this point I hope it won't appear at all. The blue stains you see on my stomach aren't bruises. They are surgical markers, it's so tender I haven't been able to take it off yet. I tried wiping it off but it takes abit of pressure to wipe it off so that has to wait cause pressure right now is a no no :D

Here's some updates pictures :)

6 days old babies :D

I'm really surprised how quickly I healed. I feel like myself again now. I don't need pain killers to get by anymore. I haven't had it the last 24 hrs, and I feel completely fine. It's abit sore where the incisions are, but if I don't touch it or move too much, it doesn't bother me as much. They're also starting to drop abit now. I feel so content, I think part of it is because I know if anything goes wrong, Dr. Lanzer is just a phone call away. I really can't be happier with the results.
