For the longest I can remember, I have always wanted to get a butt reduction, Ya every one these days is getting a butt lift, but I wanted mine off, it was just too big.
Thanks to RealSelf, I was able to find a great doctor. Dr E in New York City. Being that I was traveling from over seas, I did my initial consultation online via skype and email. The doctor was very accommodating being that I was not from the US. He worked around my schedule. I meet with the doc two days before surgery on a Saturday (ya the doc was amazingly accommodating)and we went over every thing one more time an on Monday morning, Jan 31st I went in for the surgery.
The staff was very friendly and nice. The anesthesiologist was also very nice.
Was knocked out through the process. After I woke up, the doctor himself walked me to the car.
Slept for several hours on arrival home. woke up the next morning with lots of blood soaked clothing, luckily i had put lots of towels on the bed. Dr E. called me every day about twice a day from his personal cell phone. He is such an amazing amazing doctor. He made the whole experience amazing. Because I had to travel to a different state a week after the surgery, I meet with the doctor 3/4days after the surgery and for the first time I saw what I looked like. The results were amazing, my butt looked amazing. oh on the day of the surgery, we agreed with the doc to also take some fat from the outer hips, and even though my stomach was mainly flat he took off the tiny bump all of this at no extra cost.
My results were so amazing, the doc asked me if it was ok for the two ladies that worked with him to see. They were all amazed. (I will post before and after pics soon)
Around day 4 I took a walk. The compression garment really really helps. I tried to go without one day ( I had a bad night that day, so wear your compression garment if you plan to do lipo it really helps). By day 5 I was no longer taking any meds, I still couldn't sit on my butt and walked like an old woman. I was supposed to travel after 5 days but postponed my ticket to travel after 8 days. By day 7, I could sit (wasn't too comfortable but bearable)So day 8 I flew 3 hrs to Louisiana were I stayed with my sister for 2 weeks. I never knew what postures and movements my butt muscles were involved in until the Lipo. with each day that passed, I was able to do different things like bend to my feet, lift my leg.
It has now been two and half weeks since my surgery. I feel great, I look amazing, clothes fit me so nicely. I have an amazing figure. In a week I will be traveling 24 hrs back home and am so excited about this new beautiful body. For international people traveling for Lipo, I suggest giving your self 7-10 days before you can travel a long distance.
Am so so happy with my results, and if any one is thinking of doing Lipo use Dr. E, he is the best, am totally in love with this guy. Amazing doc, very friendly, caring, and works magic.
