Liposuction for Upper Stomach is Scheduled

Whew, that was quick!

When we decided that my own liposuction surgeon will have to remove the fat on my upper stomach before the panniculectomy, I had absolutely no idea that he’d be able to get me in this quickly!

I just saw the plastic surgeon on the 22nd of August (2018), got the letter we asked him to write my lipo surgeon about the plan of attack on the 28th and emailed it to my surgeon on the 31st of August.

I was told that they have a spot for me on September 18th! Holy cow and not so convenient since I have a convention in Amsterdam this coming weekend (Sept 7-9), another in Prague the following weekend (Sept 13-17) and then a convention in London at the end of the month (Sept 27-30).  So a Sept 18th date isn’t really possible, especially since I’ve already shelled out quite a bit of money for these conferences.

I went and pleaded with the surgery coordinator and it looks like they have a Tuesday, October 2nd (2018) opening so I’ve snatched that up.  I only have a day between getting in from London and the surgery, so loads of hand sanatizer and staying away from public transport as much as possible it is!

My 8th and final liposuction is coming up!
