24 Year Old, No Kids Stubborn Fat Around Belly & Flank - New York, NY

My surgery date was on 09/12/16 around 9am. I was told not take any medications as they would provide you with pain killers in the office. My procedure was smart lipo on the upper, lower abdomen and the flank area. I was explained the whole procedure on my consultation, including the exact price i would be spending. On the day of my procedure, they had taken before pictures and set me in a gown. I would recommend to wear long socks because the surgery room tends to get really cold. After the have covered me up with a drape in front of me so i won't see whats going on, they injected local anesthetic to all the parts they needed and i won't lie it hurt a lot, it was very very very uncomfortable. Once they numbed me I was good to go. In total they made 5 incisions but with the cannula so its really not an incision. At first when they inserted the cannula it felt fine, i was completely numb, after a while it got very uncomfortable as I couldn't take it. But that was towards the end, they were able to take a lot of fat out. I would recommend to keep a compression garment on the day of surgery, because you will leak a lot. After the procedure was done i was able to walk. When I got home I had to change the pads all over the incision areas. I was very nausea at that point because I was seeing my own blood and on top the pain killers were wearing off. The first 2 days were hell for me. I was constantly throwing up, I could not eat or drink anything because all I would do is vomit.After the second day, I started to feel much better and normal. You will see bruises all over your abdomen and flank area because thats the area where it was treated. Your stomach will feel hard and its normal. I was told to keep the compression garment on for 2 months straight because the results are more effective and so far I see such big difference. I had followed up with Dr. Singer on 10/24/16, so a little over a month after my surgery, and i cannot express how happy I am with my results. I have started the gym again, and it makes me more motivated than ever. Dr. Singer said I had amazing results for just one month, and I would see more difference in another 6 months to a year. If I were to recommend this to someone who has a little flabby stomach, and love handles, I can guarantee you, that you won't regret this choice. Its one of the best things I have ever done for myself. I feel much more comfortable in my body. I would definitely recommend Dr. Singer, he is an amazing surgeon, he knows what he is doing, and he is willing to hear you out with your concerns.

Update after a month and half!

This is an update of my abdomen an flanks after a month and half. Really excited, I've been hitting the gym 5 days a week so it's really helping a lot!
