Spent: $3,500 in Dubai
Had smart lipo yesterday at 10am, I am 51 years old, 5' 3'' and 58.8 kg on the day of my surgery, I am active slim and excersize regularly, i watch what i eat and watch my portion sizes. Why I chose to have smart lipo is that I had large hips and although my husband loved my curves and I know i am should be happy as i am fairly slim for my age but I was uncomfortable, especially when wearing jeans, I had flanks and upper abdomen done and had around 1 ltr of fat removed. I am finding it harder to lose a lot of weight as i get older and I don't particularly want to lose weight as I am over 50 and want to keep the weight on my face and hands as these are the areas you look older if you have less weight on you.
I am in a compression garment today and in a little pain, I have bruised quite badly but i do bruise easily, the procedure took about 2 hours and i felt fine afterwards, i managed to do some ironing this morning but feel a little sick from the pain killers and medication so I am now lying down. I will continue to post my recovery and answer any questions you may have, i will also try to get my pre op photos and post any new ones week by week.
