I must confess, doing lipo was one of the scariest things in my life. After I had my daugther I really wanted to do lipo to finally have the body of my dreams!
One of the reasons I was very scared was because I had never been under surgery before (THANK GOD).
I had so many thoughts going through my head during the whole process...
Finding the right doctor, getting myself ready mentally for the process; just so many things going through my mind but; I decided to trust my doctor and decided it was the right time and moment for me to do it.
Prior to surgery I did all my exams, I remember that day i wanted to die lol
I felt like I was doing surgery that same day..
They do a lot of blood work to make sure everything good for the day off.
The day off surgery I checked in with the Doctor at 6am; I remember leaving my daughter with my mom on my bed and had so many crazy thoughts in my head. I went in with my husband and we stayed talking on the waiting room as the staff got everything ready.
My husband kept on telling me to not do it, to leave.... that i still had time to turn back.
I was very scared but... I had my word, I knew I wanted a change and I knew deep down everything was going to be perfect and that I was going to love my results!!
Minutes later my best friend came in to give me support and help me through the entire process.
Seconds after I was already in with the nurses doing the last tests prior to surgery..
After that, they gave me a room to stay at to wait for the doctor.
Minutes later both the doctor Enrique Hananbergh and the anestheciologist came in to get me ready.
After that..... Lights out !!
After the surgery, I woke up slowly wanting to get up. I was feeling good I wasn't in pain in that moment.
I sat into a wheelchair and they called my family in!! In that moment I started crying, for some reason I got a little emotional...
They took me down to the car and I was soon heading home.
As I got home, I went directly to my bed. I stayed on the bed the first 3 days!
Everyone's different.. Theres people the next day are perfect and pain less! I myself however; felt pain and after the 3rd day was when I started feeling good.
The third day I started the massages! OH GOD! THIS IS PAINFUL!!!!!
I would cry and scream so much the first massages... My tears would fall down during the session. I remember this and I still get chills!
But ladies it's all worth it at the end!! at least thats what I would tell myself to support all the pain.
These were all taken the first month of surgery! I absolutly loved my results! I must admit the pain was so so so so worth it! Now I get to wear all these beautiful dresses and prior to my lipo I didn't feel like wearing no dresses just nice comfy leggings.
I recommend all ladies wanting to do it to YES! DO IT! MAKE SURE you pick and do your research! Research your doctor his going to be your everything! He is the one that must understand what YOU WANT! AND THE RESULTS YOU WANT TO ACHIEVE!
Now is just taking care of your body and making sure you try to eat the healthiest you can :)
