Album Description

4200cc 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 :)


I'm a Beauty Enhancement Awards Contestant!


This album is an official submission to the Beauty Enhancement Awards. (Read more about it.)


I'm competing in the following categories:
Best Makeover - 20s, Best Makeover - 30s, Best Female Liposuction


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!

    I looooove your results! I live in Houston, Texas too and im thinking about going to Dr Newall for my surgery. He's aggressive with lipo and that's what i want. After seeing this, he's gonna be my doctor. Did you have a lot of pain after?
    browncurvesFrom: browncurves | 2008-02-28 10:10:27

    Hello All,

    Thank you for your supportive comments. It's now 8 months later & I'm still loving my results. I have updated my pics, so check them out when you get a chance. I haven't been on this site in a long time. I was glued to my computer & this website for 3 months (1 month before & 2 months after my surgery). But as you will find out, after recovery, life goes on & you start getting out more.

    I'm so glad that I had the surgery, & have never regretted it, even when I was in pain immediately after. My very close friends & family know that I've had the surgery & have been very supportive. However, I made the decision not to tell my husband's side of the family for fear of judgement & jealousy...and rightly so. When I finally came out of hiding, 2 months later & they finally saw me, they never commented or asked me questions about how I lost a lot of weight. Instead all I got was a lot of fake smiles. I probably would've told them if they had asked, but there was an obvious jealous/envious atmosphere. Anyway, enough about the haters...LOL.

    For those of you who asked... I used three different compression garments, 1) Marena Stage 1 Female Girdle (one size smaller than my measurements for better abdominal support) that went below my calves since I had my thighs done, 2) the Rainey Women's High Back Stage 2 (one size smaller than my measurements b/c the material is very stretchy), & 3) Veronique Female Full Body Girdle Stage 2 (also one size smaller than my measurements; it's not very stretchy at all, so be careful with your measurements).

    Well enough of my rambling. Good luck to everyone having surgery, & a speedy recovery to those of you who have already taken your leap of faith!

    It is weird because I have never seen anyone with the same build as me. We are so similar in stature. The only true difference is that I had more children than you so my stomach falls below yours. I am having the same procedures done as you in addition to a tummy tuck. I am now adding the arm lipo to my order of services after seeing your photos. I just want to say that you look great and I hope that I look as good as you if not better (smile). Please add more photos. I would love to see what your end results are. Also, can you tell me if you dieted to get these results or is it just the lipo?
