Me and my friends went crazy in Florida, specially at the beaches of Destin. We ate too much, and of course the inevitable just was about to happen. We gained a few extra pounds. We decided diets were out of the question, we wanted to loose weight but without having to go to the gym. Cardio and exercise are not part of our vocabularies.
When visiting Miami and some other local places, we met a plastic surgeon. I will not write his name here, he actually asked me not to mention him. Which indeed might give him some kind of marketing trough the word of mouth here in my blog. But anyway, he was willing to perform free lipo on one of us, if the other liked it they would have to pay for it, of course.
I sacrificed my self, naaa I am lying. We decided to make a small contest, between the 3 of US (Marcela, Claudia and Me “Paulina”). Guess who won the liposuction contest ? YESSS it was me!!!
I was about to have free lipo!! YEAH!!! Ok finally after the 3rd day, everything was ready, i had my blood exams done. And the doctor realized i was fit to have my fat sucked out. He recommended that we use SmartLipo, a technology i did know nothing about. I asked him, what the he** is Smart Lipo ? Is this somewhat related to a liposuction using a smart phone? I should have not asked that, i actually did look like the only one who was not ‘SMART’. He explained to me, that it is just a liposuction using a laser light. The name Smart is because the machine used is named like that. He would sedate me (I would be actually not be sleeping, i would just be in the middle, like with heavy eyes, but somewhat awake – he said this is the way it is done today. In the past they used full anesthetics and put the patient to sleep. But now its less risky if the patient is only sedated. Ok.
He took some pictures of me, i was not totally naked, was wearing underwear (some of the medical fabric kind – not sexy at all). Some frontal lateral and other perspective pictures were taken. I did not realize how chubby i looked until i saw the pictures he took on the display of his professional camera. OMG, i really gained some weight. Thank god I am blessed with elastic and young skin, so the skin would not be flabby and loose after the lipo. YEA!!!
Anyway, after receiving the cedation, the procedure actually started. I felt some tiny pinches in my tummy and legs, those were some numbing injections with a special liquid to make the fat more easy to work with to be later extracted. The machine was there at my right side (The SmartLipo machine, kind of a funny name). The rest of the procedure i do not remember much about. I was kind of sedated so i remember parts of if. I could see the red beam of the laser glowing a few feet away.
The procedure did not last more than 1 and a half hours. Finally i was in the recovery room. A nurse helped my wear some special garments, that i had to wear for almost 1 month.
I write this exactly 6 weeks after the procedure. I really see the difference in by body figure. Now the bulky fat deposits are gone!. I recovered the figure i had before all this crazy Florida Road Trip with my 2 friends. Now they are having their Lipo, but of course they will have to pay for it. The cost of lipo is it worth!
Excellent change in my life and body.
Thank you Doctor XXXXX
