I honestly knew nothing about liposuction until yesterday when I had it done. In my case it was not to remove unwanted fat but to use my own fat to try to build up the tissue around the one breast which has had an incision open up twice.
I was told it will feel like really bad bruising. And I will let you know yes that is true. It feels like I’ve been kicked in my inner thighs and the bruising pain lasts, it doesn’t fade and go away.
I know it will continue to improve but I hate being so limited. I love to walk and work out but I was unable to do either today. It was a struggle just to limp around the house.
The anesthesia also throws my sleep off for a few days. I was up most of last night and slept a lot this morning and am just exhausted. But again this will go away with time just like my pain and bruising.
I am questioning why I put myself and body through this but I am hopeful that with some extra skin the breast will finally take this time. I have one perfect one and would love to be able to get the same on the other side.
For now I need to rest and take it easy which is not my strong suit and not easy with 5 young kids. But after all I’ve been through over the past year and a half, I know I can get through this and things will be ok. It just takes time.
