40 Year Old Mom. Tired of Chubby Tummy! - Saint Louis, MO

I have always had a belly pooch, even when at my thinnest. I've gained and lost weight over the years, but my stomach NEVER looks good. I haven't worn a two-piece since I was 21.

I'm currently 40 years old. 5'6 and 188 lbs.

I had Tumescent liposuction on my upper and lower abs and on my flanks as well. I was AWAKE during the procedure. If you don't have a high pain tolerance, I do not recommend being awake. On a pain scale it got up to a 9 a few times. (My doctor recommended anesthesia, but I declined to save money).

Here are pics of my progress. I'm two weeks post op and just starting to feel human again. This surgery is not for the weak! Lol

2 days post op. Looks fantastic!

Swelling has set in. Not looking as pretty as it did at first. :(

2 weeks post op

Ugh. I know it gets worse before it gets better.... I'm trying to be patient.
