So... back to Dr. Pettigrew with Savannah Plastic...

A Quick Word
So... back to Dr. Pettigrew with Savannah Plastic Surgery. While I was doing my two-month follow up with him I discussed how I was unhappy with my weight gain and was considering lipo. He REALLY!!!! Wanted me to lose weight first and he educated me why. But I wanted it anyway. I was going through issues with my husband. I went from 140lbs to a whopping 174. I had never been a person to think I could NOT do something before. I needed a a push, and I needed the motivation. On top of that, the army doesn't deal with fluffiness very well. So because I was a repeat patient he quoted me for 3500. He lipo'd 5770 ml of fat from my body. And although weight loss was not promised I dropped eight pounds before I even headed back to the gym. Im currently three weeks post-op and already thrilled. I look pretty good now, and I can't imagine what I would look like when I hit "final result" at the four-month mark. Thank you Dr. Pettigrew & Savannah Plastic surgery. My head is high again. My husband and I are separated and knowing his mouth is going to fall open when we do cross paths makes me rather giddy.

Here are the Photos I Meant to Upload

Pics as promised... Mind you I am only 25 days post op, but here is the progress thus far.

My post-up experience in a nutshell....

1 Year Post-Op

One year later! Lost a husband and some weight. Not much, just 5 pounds. A lot of ups and downs lately but one thing is for certain: I have been back in the gym!

I really don't like how my lower body doesn't match my upper. I was 174 pounds last year and this morning I weighed in at 159. Still a work in progress, but heavily considering round 2 with Dr. Pettigrew again to shape my outer thigh/hip area, inner thighs, lower abs and back of arms. The good thing is he probably won't have to take off as much as last time :)

I... dont... need... more lipo.

I don't need more lipo

Always excellent. Returning patient.
