Album Description4200cc liposuctioned from arms, axilla, flanks, back, u/l abs, saddlebags, i/o thighs, & inner knees. Weight down to 152 lbs on day 6 from 162 lbs pre-op. I love my result so far, although I know it's going to get even better. Can't wait to see how much smaller I'll get! I'm looking forward to the day when I can rate my results as a 5 (thrilled). Swelling started to set in on day 5 (upper garment was a little harder to get on today). **Some of the dates on the pictures are wrong.** Waiting for my new two Stage 2 full body Rainey & Veronique garment in a SIZE M!!! My PS started me off in a Stage I 2XL (because of my big butt), but the waist quickly became too small :)

My Personal Statement:
On June 13, 2007, I had tumescent liposcuplture, under general anesthesia, performed on my arms, upper/lower abs, flanks, back, inner/outer thighs, & knees. 4200 cc total was removed. My pre-op measurements were as follows: arms- 12-1/2", waist-37", hips-40", thighs-24". Today, five days later, my measurements are: arms- 11-1/2", waist- 34-1/2", hips-39", thighs- 23-1/2".
I first had the idea to get liposculpture when I was visiting my parents home in New Orleans, LA. In the front bedroom of their house, one of the walls is a complete mirror, ceiling to floor, wall to wall. One night I found myself sitting on the bed, facing the mirrored wall, in an over-sized t-shirt & panties. When I first looked up at myself in the mirror, I squinted my eyes to get a better look because I just could not believe that the person looking back at me WAS ME!! From that point on I quickly made the decision to change my life. I did not recognize myself physically or emotionally. Ten years ago, I would have never imagined in my wildest dreams that I would be sitting in front of the same mirror that I admired myself in as a child & now think how horrible I looked. But even worse, not recognizing the person who I had become. Now I must put it on record that I am very happily married to my high school sweetheart, we have two beautiful children & a poodle, we own our home, & have professional degrees & professions. My husband always tells me that he loves me, my body, etc just the way I am with or without the surgery. The problem is that I didn't love my body & it was starting to affect my relationship, sex life, & drive with my husband, which I feel so bad that he had to go through that because he loves me regardless.
It's only been 5 days since my surgery, so I know it's way too early to judge my results. But I feel sexier already, even with all the cuts, bruises, soreness, drainage, & bandages. I can tell that the results are going to be awesome & can't wait for what the future recovery months holds.
Finally, my message to anyone out there considering any kind of makeover. JUST DO IT! Put yourself first for once in your life. For me, I didn't want to be that 50-60 year old grandmother looking back on her life & regretting that she didn't live a more healthier, vibrant life!
