Final Inches Patient Katie K. Talks About Her Decision To Do Laser Lipo Over A Tummy Tuck – Part II
I am not going to lie ladies. The idea of taking off all of my clothes in front of anyone was not my idea of a good time. I had gotten so good at hiding my bits and pieces, that even Daddy Warbucks had nicknamed me Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon. Let’s just say I earned that one after he walked in on me unexpectedly while I was shaving my legs in the shower. I quickly tried to save face by twisting my body all kinds of ways to hide my mommy pooch. Even to this day, I can tell he is never going to let that nickname go.
The next step in my journey down the yellow brick road to a flatter tummy was my free consultation. I thought free, what have I got to lose. Even Daddy Warbucks couldn’t argue with free. I was so excited I even got there 10 minutes early. Then this sweet looking lady came out to get me and take me back to a consultation room. I thought to myself am I in the right place? It was a room with a small couch, an overstuffed chair and a computer. Wait a minute, was I here for counseling or a medical procedure. It didn’t feel very medical to me.
I sat on the couch and the women started asking me some basic questions about what had brought me to Final Inches? How I felt about my body? What had I tried to do before to change my body? And finally, what would I like to change about my body? What did I want to change about my body?! Well let’s start with the two fist full of fat that I can grab from my belly I thought! No biking, swimming or 20 mile runs were budging that mommy pooch of love.
The Final Inches consultant then went on to tell me that they could get rid of my mommy pooch, in about an hour, permanently, guaranteed and all while only using local anesthesia. She told me that the surgeon basically takes a little laser straw, like the size of a coffee stir stick and go in and suck out all of the fat. Minimal bruising, swelling and discomfort. I have to be honest again ladies, my eyes and ears kind of glazed over at that point and I started to have visions of being let behind the curtain to see the magical Oz. How could this be, why wasn’t everyone in this place? Less than half the price of a tummy tuck, no big scar, just a couple small 1 cm incisions, local anesthesia, and some people even go back to work the very next day. Toto, no way. Was I dreaming, where was Toto my dog? I thought what the heck, sign me up. Could they do it today?
I went back out to the desk and made my pre op appointment to have my blood drawn, weight in and wait for it…before pictures taken with let’s just say not the most appealing paper bra and mini panties. More about that and the endless discussions with my Mommy posse and what they had to say about my decision in my next post.
Please stay tuned and follow me through my adventures of pre op, surgery and post op. Pre Op part III coming soon…
