I am now one day post-op. Everything went well the day of, the only downside is that my blood work came back showing I have anemia, so the doctor said if the fat he is getting has a lot of blood in it he wouldn't be able to take out as much. So far my butt and waist looks good, but I am not trying to get examine it too much because i know it they will both change. The first day home was rough, but I already feel much better. My butt is sore and stiff and my abs are the worst, they feel like they are burning. It really isn't too bad though, especially with the pain killers. I will post pictures soon!

Question- my doctor doesn't use a board for he tummy area, but I have seen girls get great results with them so I ordered one but I am not sure how to use it. Do you just put it under your garmet? I am 4 days post op and want to do anything I can to maximize my results! Thank you!!

I feel like my butt is shrinking everyday!!!!!! I am 9 days post op. I knew my butt would be big immediately after surgery and would gradually go down. And it was really big the first 5 days. Since I was never looking to have a huge booty I avoided measuring it or trying on too many things because I didn't want to get attached lol. However my butt has gone down so much in the past 3 days I am freaking out I will lose it all! I measured it the first time two nights ago because I felt like alot of my swelling went down and I was at 41 inches. This morning it looked smaller to me so I measured again and I am at 40. My preop measurement around the fullest part of my butt was 38". I am freaking out because I have been told results aren't stabilized until 2 months. If I keep going at this rate I'll be back to where I started! As of right now I love my shape, even if it goes down a Tiny bit. I'm just trying to stay positive and stay off my butt!!!

At the 6 weeks post op tomorrow and I am very happy! Love my new body and was worth every penny. My results might not be as drastic as some girls but it is what I wanted, an improvement! Finally getting around to putting up pics, and to be honest I don't think the pictures do me justice lol! I can still nit pick a little, kinda wish I lipoed my thighs and wish my waist was a little smaller but over all I am very happy! Hope my butt doesn't go down any more.! Sorry my before pics are a little blurry, I took a picture of the screen of my camera with my phone lol

Had my 6 week post op appointment. The doctor said I'm healing really well, he said my stomach will still go down a bit once the scar tissue heals. He hopes my butt will stay its current size but everyone heals a little different. He said that although the fat takes within a few weeks its still really lol able, so the longer you stay off the better. I still am sleeping on my stomach and try to sit only on my thighs. Again I'm really happy I went through with this. My advice is to have realistic expectations, but if you want to do it go for it! Thank you to all the girls who share their story on real self, it really helped me make my decision! I'm putting up a few more pics too:)

I can't believe Dr. Hegg has passed. He was a great surgeon, it doesn't seem real. I had 1 more post op appointment but luckily for me I am healing nicely. It seems so superficial to worry how my final results will turn out when he has lost his life. prayers for his loved ones. I will probably delete my account soon because my main reason for creating it was to help girls looking for a surgeon in the Bay Area, or to talk to other Dr. hegg patients. I also feel bad for the ladies who had upcoming surgery dates with him, it must be hard to start the journey all over again. This is a reminder of how precious life is, as much as we persue beauty, we need to cherish life much more.
