I had tumescent liposculpture on my upper and lower abs, love handles in the front and back (they call this hips). It worked great! I saw final results in 6 months, with improvement along the way.
I had a lot of bruising in the waist area, but I was up and caught a plane the next day. The surgery did not keep me bed ridden. I did everything I would normally do in a day. The bruising cleared in a week.
After the surgery I dieted off another 8 lbs. With the combination of both, I went from a size 12/14 in jeans down to a size 6, 6 months later.
The cost was a fraction of liposuction. I paid $5900 for all areas. The procedure for all 5 areas took about 3 1/2 hours and I was awake through the whole thing. The only painful part during the surgery was when they went near my belly button. They said that was normal. There was no pain in any other part of the abs, hips or waist.
What a confidence booster! Everyone thought I had my boobs done, but it was just the upper abs sucked out so it made my chest look better and perkier! A must do if you don't like the way you look.
