Liposuction Recovery Day 5

Today is day 5 since my liposuction, and it has been the best day so far.

As I mentioned before, I wasn't only dealing with soreness, but a couple incisions were very painful. But as of this morning I can tell they are healing, and hardly hurt at all.

I went back to work yesterday and just wanted to cry all day! It was very rough. Up until then I'd only been reclining, laying down, or standing. So sitting straight up in a chair all day hurt. And I even got a brand new huge bruise on my upper stomach from my compression garment because of that.

Trying to smile through the pain

Today was a great day. Still very sore, and I move like an injured, old lady, but that's ok!
I've been walking every day around the house, usually just a mile or two. When I got out of work today it was pouring rain, and I didn't have an umbrella. So, I tried to run to the car. I very quickly realized I can't run yet!!

I also got my best sleep last night. I have to sleep on my back, which is almost impossible for me, but I must be getting used to it, because it's getting easier.

My poor body looks like it was put in a washing machine spin cycle. So many bruises, some small, some huge, all different colors. Cuts, holes, marks- it is such a mess!! Of course I take tons of pictures, but I know most people don't wanna see all that!

 I have not regretted doing this for one second. I know it was the best decision for me!

If you guys have any questions at all, feel free to ask.

  1. Are you look so gorgeous and professional in your work gear! It must be really hard being at work in pain, but I am glad to hear you are sleeping and feeling better! I have so many questions but can't think of any at the moment. I think it is really awesome you did it. I think if there is something.about your body that gets you down and you can change it then why not! Why spend life miserable! Was it hard to pick a surgeon? Has the pain been worse then you expected?

    1. I totally agree. If you do it for yourself, not because someone else wants you to, then you should go for it!
      I went back to the same surgeon who did my breast augmentation 12 years ago. I loved him then, so I knew I wanted to go to him again. I honestly didn't know what to expect with the pain level, but it really wasn't bad at all. It was really just 2 incisions that were really hurting me. But now that those are healed up, I'm just dealing with the soreness, which is bearable.
      Thank you Jess! 😘

  3. Glad it's getting better each day! Will this be the only surgery or will you need another to take care of loose skin?
