"My name is Petra Ketel and I have two sons of 3 and 4 years of age. Having two pregnancies so close together is an assault on your body. Just before the birth of my second son my mother died. All in all it was a very difficult time. I didn't feel like doing anything, not even any sport - my figure became a thing of the past. I was left with quite a big tummy and my saddlebags bothered me a lot. After having sunk to my lowest ebb and pulled myself together again, it was time for a new start. I had already spoken with an acquaintance who had had some liposculpture done and was very enthusiastic about it. She put me on to Linea Aesthetica.
My consultant was very nice and had lots of time for me and told me what I could expect from the operation. I didn't need to think about it any longer - and the fact that it was so much cheaper in belgium had something to do with it. I decided to have 5 areas done.
The operation was in Brussels. The surgeon took several photos and marked up the places where fat was to be removed. The anaesthetist told me not to worry because he saw that I was scared. I came round from the anaesthetic two hours later to find the assistants dressing me with a panty-girdle. Afterwards I was allowed back to my room where my husband was waiting for me. As soon as I had woken up properly I was able to go home. The operation was on friday so I had two days to recover in comfort. Quite frankly, I was very sore. I had muscle pain all over but it got much better every day.
You soon get used to wearing the panty-girdle and showering is not a problem. I wore the panty-girdle day and night for 5 weeks and then only during the day for another two weeks. quite a while, you might say but I felt very comfortable. Then I lost 4 kilos which of course could only improve the end result. And as you can see from the photos, the final results are astounding!
I am so happy that I took this step and therefore want to thank the whole team at Elyzea very much indeed."
