Botched Lipo Recovery - Seoul, KR

4 years ago I decided to do something about my skinny legs. I looked into varying procedures and came upon calf implants. Turns out the doctors in Asia do not do calf implants (I was living in Asia at the time) . One surgeon I trusted, advised me to just get lipo on my thighs, butt and hips to balance out the bottom half of my legs. Being desperate, I went along with it. BUT I told him to NOT to extract too much from butt and hips.

As soon as I woke up, I realized something had gone horribly wrong: I'd lost my curves! They were in orange jars across from the operating table....
I sobbed all the way home.
I sobbed the following day, week and months. I was so angry at myself. I did a ton of research to reverse the procedure. I hated looking at myself in mirror. To make things worse, I'd read that fat would return to untreated areas. Meaning I'd be top heavy...

4 years later, without any corrective surgery, my curves have returned ...back to where they're supposed to be and I couldn't be happier! How could I have been so stupid?! My curves weren't the problem. I loved my curves! It was my calves! ( I got them fixed with implants by the way.) With a bit of weight gain, they slowly came back!

Moral of the story? Please think long and hard before you make a possibly life-changing decision. Sometimes, the mistakes are irreversible. Don't make a decision out of desperation. Consult with your friends or close family members if you can so they can give you their input. Lastly, be CLEAR about your desired goals with your surgeon.

I wish you all the best in your journeys!
