I think they booked 2.5 hours for me as well, but my husband said my surgeon came out to the waiting room after about 90 minutes and said I was done. He was surprised how quick it was. Although it could be the resident, nurses, et al stayed behind to clean things up. And I suppose they book a little extra time in case they run into problems (there were none with me).

Mine was booked for 2.5 hours also but took only about 90 minutes. I think they book the block of time in case they run into anything they weren't expecting.

Mine is scheduled for tomorrow. I am both excited and nervous. How was the pain after? I have stairs I was hoping to be able to go up and down for exercise.

Mine said around 45 mins...I carry most of my weight around hips , thighs and I have a huge backside! So being a little smaller in the torso area, the Dr said it shouldn't take as long......hopefully!

I had mine done in Mexico. It took about an hour I was told but it felt like 30 seconds.

I have stairs in my house as well and was able to maneuver them just fine
