Spent: $6,500 in St. Louis, MO
SURGERY COMING UP SOON…04/09/2010 First let me give you a little history about me…..I’ve always been a small person I’m 5’1 125 lbs,(27 years old) never been over a size 5 but have been as small as a size 0(which I hate) as of now I’m a size 3/4. But I've always had a muffin top belly, no matter how small I’ve been I have never had a flat belly. (I’ve also never worked out regularly either or dieted pretty much eat what I want when I want) I’ve even had people ask me if I was expecting a baby and I have no kids. People always say “oh just do sit ups or chruchs and that little belly a be gone”, that’s so not true, there’s no such thing as spot/target one body part, you would have to lose weigh all over which I cant afford to do, I don’t want to look like Nicole Richey or Lindsey Lohan, for the first time in my life I have hips and I’m Super Excited about them.
After reading this site…i must say i'm getting a little scared and nervous. i dont want to pay all that money and not see results, i understand that it takes months to see results but i just hope this isnt a waste of money.

Date of Surgery
Went pretty well for the most part, don’t remember the actually procedure itself, only the Doctor asking me to turn over on my sides. The night before I didn’t sleep partly because I’m a night owl and the other I was too excited! So I was out of it during whole procedure and the rest of day pretty much.
I stayed with my grandmother (she’s a nurse) so she could take care of me. Didn’t leak to bad or too long only about two days at the most. She was pretty good at changing my pads. I didn’t experience a great deal of pain at all only when getting in and out of bad and we moving around.
Pretty much the same. I still hadn’t taken a shower yet, just washed private parts, still not a lot of pain just super uncomfortable.
Day 4 & 5
Was suppose to be taking it easy but found myself doing laundry and other house chores, also took a shower for the first time, still wasn’t in a lot of pain just super uncomfortable. No difference in how I look as if I had NO surgery due to all the swelling trying to be patient and positive.
Return to work had a hard time finding something to wear since I can’t have anything tight on my belly and most of my clothes are tight. I don’t own not one t -shirt only fitted tees.lol
For the most part the whole experience hasn’t been as bad as some of the people made it out to be on this Blog or maybe I just had a great Doctor.
I will keep you’ll posted on my results as soon as I see some. I’m trying my best to not pay attention to the swelling and be patient as possible. One thing I was wondering about is why I’m in a large garment instead of medium or small since I’m a small person but I guess the doctor knows what he’s doing but I’m so tired of wearing this garment anyway and to think I have at least 5 more weeks in this thing. Hope I can take it! My fellow up is next Friday 23rd. Ill is sure to update you’ll and maybe post some pictures

Sept 1, 2010… 3 weeks after touch up still swelling dont know if i'm happy with results yet. i might want to get another touch up (my boyfriend is going to kill me)! it does look a little better than before touch up, but i want to be flat like a playboy centerfold or somebody becuase 6500 is not just a little bit of money to me. I'm stating to think my doctor might be purposly not taking enough fat so i can keep coming back
