Liposuction in Nigeria….How my journey started…
It’s not every day you get inspired to share your personal story (how i did liposuction in Nigeria) with the public,
but here we are, so bear with me. If this seems a bit scattered, it’s my first time!
I guess I’ll start with a little background about myself…
I’m 27 years old, no kids, no spouse and I live in Port Harcourt. All through
secondary , and tertiary school I was with very little body fat. How I got so fat and went out of shape is
something I couldn’t really explain, probably food from fast foods, junks,
nights in the town with my friends and less gym time left me
with excess fat that I just couldn’t get rid of.
Have you ever gone to the market, seen a beautiful dress, bought the dress,only to get home and find out that the outfit would have been perfect if not for excess belly fat?
How did you feel? Disappointed and sad right? That’s the feeling I got most
times. Sometimes after snapping pictures, probably 20 copies, I would end up
loving and choosing only 1 copy or none because my protruded stomach
would always do injustice to my pictures, even after trying to tuck it in. I would
always put on oversized clothes to cover my fatty belly. I didn’t feel good or
confident walking or attending occasions in fitted clothes. I was always
uncomfortable, self-conscious and unhappy.
I can’t say I have ever been one to consider plastic surgery before now. Don’t get
me wrong, I understand nobody is perfect and wholeheartedly believe beauty is
really in the eye of the beholder, but I decided that I wanted to do something for
myself; something that makes me happy and is entirely my own.
There’s been a lot of buzz in the media about the stigma of plastic surgery and I’ll
be the first to admit I was one of those “I’ll never get plastic surgery…blah blah
blah” people until recently. I was one of those who saw it as a complete
waste of money, but as I’ve grown I realise that plastic surgery is no different than
buying a particular purse or pair of shoes because they make us feel good about
our look. I’m so used to hiding my body under clothes in the hopes that nobody
will mock me or my belly pooch for a fanny pack, but why should I feel that
Before you judge and think I just need to get on a treadmill, trust me, I’ve
tried that. It got to a point where no matter how much I watched my diet and
exercised regularly, nothing would budge. That’s about the time that I decided
to stop wallowing and do something…so I started a little research on body
contouring procedures and liposuction in Nigeria.
Nonsurgical treatments prove that technology and science can accomplish
amazing things. But for me, that’s not enough because I wanted something that’s
longer lasting. I did some research on liposuction in Nigeria, plastic surgeons; male, female, old and
young – you name it and I probably googled it. For me, doing the research was
exciting because it was the first time I was actively working towards my goal of having liposuction in Nigeria. so I
started with an online community detailing procedures and real patient
experiences to get an idea of what I could potentially be going through.
I decided to have a consultation with Dr. Opara Kingsley . It was during my
consultation that we talked about my stomach pooch and he
explained that I was qualified for liposuction…
