1 week post surgery

I‘m already 1 week post surgery and swelling and bruising is slowly decreasing.
My waist measures 74cm now (before surgery it was around 83cm...) and I‘m still pretty swollen at the moment!!
It‘s so exciting to finally have a waist!! Even with 54kg I was pretty straight! I‘m so happy I did this second surgery!

Second surgery

I did it!
I had my second surgery on April 19th and got liposuction on my tummy, waist and back and on my forearms as well as fat grafting to the buttocks. It is pretty swollen and I‘m in a lot if pain today, but it is definitely all worth it!! My figure is completely transformed! Even with  all the swelling I finally have a waist! Dr. Arthur even called me one of his „masterpieces“!!
I will upload surgery fotos and videos as soon as I am back home, because internet connection is a little bit slow in Medan.
Just one quick picture with clothes: There is a waist!! :)

Almost 12 weeks post surgery!

Time flies!! I‘m almost 12 weeks post surgery and I believe swelling is almost completely gone now!
Here is a picture I took yesterday.

On April 17th my second surgery will take place! I‘m so excited!!
I decided to do forearm liposuction at the same time, because now that my arms are so slim, my forearms look even bigger in comparison! And summer is coming, so I don’t want to wait until autumn, as I originally had planned.

Here are my previous pictures to show the healing process in comparison:

Comparison 1 week - 3 weeks - 5 weeks after surgery

I thought it would be a nice idea to directly compare my after-surgery-pictures to show you my healing process.
You can really see that the swelling is subsiding nicely.

(Almost) 5 weeks post-operation

Tomorrow I will be 5 weeks post surgery!! :-)
Time really flies!

Last week, some friends I hadn't seen for a while, asked me if I had lost weight!
Apparently I look slimmer, now that my arms are smaller.
I'm really happy I did fly half around the world! I always hated my arms and never wore tops or dresses in summer. Now my arms look sooo much better!!
I will do liposuction on my forearms as well sometime around autumn this year, at least that's my plan. I will have to save a little more money, because I will fly back to Medan in April for liposuction on my tummy, waist and lower back. The surgery itself is not that expensive (compared to Europe), but the flight is quite expensive, especially if you want to fly business class... It's really much more pleasant, especially after surgery and because it's a really long flight! (16hours+)

3 weeks post-OP

Today I'm 3 weeks post-operation!! :-)
Here are some pictures. You can still see that my arms are pretty swollen, even my forearms and hands are swollen, but nevertheless you can already see the new, toned form of my arms. :-)
I'm very happy with the result, so far and I know that in a few more weeks/months, when the swelling is gone, I will be even happier.
The swelling should be gone by summer and I can finally wear t-shirts and tops with confidence!

17 days post-OP

Just a quick update.
I'm so happy with my result, so far, it was one of my best decisions to fly to Medan and Dr. Tjandra for liposuction!
Before surgery my arms measured 30-31cm and now I already measure 26cm on my left arm and 26,5cm on my right arm - amazing after such a short period of time! Remeber, swelling lasts up to 6 months!

I will post fotos when I'm 3 weeks post-operation on saturday. My bruises are already gone completely and I feel almost back to normal except for the compression garment. I had to buy another one in a smaller size already, the previous one is so big now that it wrinkles up!
This is how my garment looks like:

I never thought such great results would be possible! I guess because no other surgeon performs 3-dimensional liposuction.
In fact, I'm so happy about my result so far, that I already booked my second surgery and the flights in April!(liposuction of my tummy, lower back, waist and flanks and additional fat grafting to the buttocks)
Yes, it is expensive and exhausting to fly halfway around the world for liposuction, but it is definitively worth it!
