My procedure was Dec 26th, and started around 11am, ended by 3:30pm.
Pros so far -
Don't remember anything from the actual procedure!
Doctor and assistants were great, so I wasn't nervous at all.
Pain has been moderate and easy to tolerate with meds.
Cons so far -
Had liposuction of love handles at the same time, so it's really hard to follow the instructions of not applying pressure to backside & not being able to lay on stomach or lay flat. So I'm laying on my side in a pacman shape.
I am a 41yo mother of 3, and have tried to get my stomach back the best I could with exercise and diet (worked pretty hard for at least 9 of the last 11 years). I gave up wheat gluten in 2005, and have been running since 2002. Stats - 5'4", 144 lbs.
