What are flanks?

What are flanks?

Postby vaceves » Thu Dec 14, 2006 2:12 pm

I am getting flank lipo and don't know what it is?

Is it the area around your waist or higher?

I think flanks are in your back. Like above your hips? I'm not sure either!

I had mine done and it was so painful. This is the last place to recover on me. Above the buttock/hip area.

That's funny I had to look it up too. :lol: It is your sides of your waistline, gives you the nice hourglass curve. I think that's right, man I might have to look again but I am pretty sure. Good luck on your surgery!!!

I thought it was the low back, but I was mistaken--it is the area below your ribs and above your hips--so on me, about one inch :P I was so bummed with my results b/c I wanted my 'flanks' lipoed and they were, but I still had some fat on my lower back (that are NOT flanks, that is low back)--grrr! So, flanks are the sides, NOT the low back--make sure you are clear with your PS as to what you want lipoed--point and draw if need be! I at least lost my low back fat with diet and exercise, but it was a shock to not have done what I had wanted; I got what I asked for, LOL!

That is good to know. That is where I was thinking. It is the love-handle area, I think. I need some definition to my waist so that will be good.

I wonder if I tell my PS the morning of my surgery that I want lipo on my back will he do it without writing up a contract or does it have to be all formal?

I think you should tell your PS prior to the morning of surgery.

I believe your PS probably wants his payment in full at or before the time of surgery, if you add an additional procedure at the last minute it may cost more. Although some of the other ladies have said their PS made the decision to do Lipo at the last minute. Why not call your PS and see what he says?

My back Lipo was included in the cost of my TT. I believe my PS performs back Lipo on all of his FTT patients. It wasn't free, it just was built into the price like the overnight hospital stay, anaesthesiologist, etc.
