Well technically it is day two. I had me surgery yesterday morning at 7am and left about 12/1pm I don't really remember. Day 1,
So I found some sites were helpful but none detailed enough for me OR MY AGE and not a mom, So I figured I would write a review for those of you who need a little more assurance. I am 25. 5'4, I was always a chubby child at the age if 15 I lost 80+lbs. My weight has always shifted between 130-140 BUT in the past years, with stress and talking birth control my weight would shift from 150-170 which I am not happy about. I have a hourglass shape and when I do gain weight it is proportiona so I can hide it well. I've always had big inner thighs that touch and rub even when I was down to 120lbs. I Have a short waist as well.
ANYWAY after 8 years of wanting lipo, because exercise and diet just never worked good enough for me, I decided to go for it! I started to get nervous but the staff and my mom and husband were very supportive and comforting! They explained everything very well to the point that I really had no more questions. 6am I was given Xanax, Vicodin, cephalexin, and promethazine. I waited about 15 mins or more then they started an IV just for precautions. I waited a bit more then kissed my man, and walking into the operating room. They washed me down with cold solution and then laid me down on the bed which had a warmer! Like a spa bed, it was very nice. The doctor told me when she was about to administer the tiny shots to numb the areas "just a little pinch" and some burning. Not too bad :) I do have 30 tattoos tho lol. Anyway.
After that they put in a small cannula it inject the numbing and fluid underneath your skin where they will be takin out the fat. The feeling was like when your dog jumps up on you like a heavy pressure or when someone heavy sits on you. Not painful just more of annoying pressure. After than you start to feel nothing. No pinch, no pressure. You do slowly feel lighter which was a funny but comforting feeling! After they have done all the areas they sit you up, but you in your pressure garment and give instructions. I walked out like I has just gotten a massage....Well waddled out because the compression garment feels like you're from the 1800s wearing a girdle. The medicine did make me very sleepy. I could have fallen asleep in the operating table but I am too nosey and like to know what is going on. The nurse and the doctors were adorable! They Let me pick which pandora channel of music I want the listen to and we just had lots of casual conversations. A very pleasant experience!
Aside from being tired I was very hungry! I had eaten a waffles at 5am, went in for operation at 7am and was done by 12pm. I went to longhorn after actually and ate a whole steak then went to the car and slept on the way home. Had some apple juice and slept till 7? Then took more pain medicine and tried to text my friend but since I couldn't see straight, almost like I was drunk, I gave up and went to bed.
