Everyone was lovely and put me at ease. I was also a bit worried about the anaesthetic but they were so professional that I just went with it – I felt in safe hands. I was in theatre for over three hours, a little bit longer afterwards to come round from the anaesthetic. The nurses were so lovely. I had a bite to eat and waited in the room, then when they were happy with my recovery, I got a taxi home with my friend.
To be honest, the pain wasn’t too bad at all! The compression garment is just uncomfortable but I had to wear it for a month so I slowly got used to it.
Vaser has given me a kick- start to get me in the gym!
I can still use my arms despite having Vaser on my armpits. I could sit down ok too which surprised me as I’ve had Vaser on my bum area; it was a bit sore but I think the compression garment helped to numb all these areas. It’s like Spanx x 100! I certainly won’t moan about wearing Spanx again… but then again I won’t have to!
The garment is to compress the skin back against the muscle. It came high up on the bust and low down over my thighs. It took me a while to stand up from sitting; it makes you realise how much you use your stomach for little everyday movements.
The garment does mean you lie down a lot, as I was restricted and other positions can be uncomfortable. Saying that, I drove for the first time on day 5, which wasn’t too bad. I’m going to start working out properly; Vaser has given me a kick- start to get me in the gym!
