I had smart-lipo performed on my inner thighs, medial knees and upper posterior area of my buttocks. I've had no complications or post operative pain and I was able to walk around the next day. I have minimal swelling and bruising. My worst days of swelling and bruising were days 4-6 but I was back at work already. The pain medicine got me through the discomfort and the compression garment... more
My body image has always been so huge to me, considering iv owned one bathing suit in 5 years will make you a believer. I had high standards for what I wanted to look like and diet & exercise alone wasn't cutting it. So, after doing my research on SmartLipo I decided that i would follow through with the procedure..I was interested in getting upper/lower abs, waist, arms, flanks and lower back... more
I suppose i thought it was normal to be in so much pain after getting smart lipo. So i thought it was fine. However, after getting a BBL from a certified Dr. I came to realized that there is a BIG DIFFERENCE. Even when it comes to getting lipo sculpture you should get it done from a Dr. with Certified credentials. I'm recovering 100 times better from my BBL than the lipo sculpture i got on my... more
4200cc removed from trunk: lower abs, upper abs & bra roll. Pain was helped by hot showers twice a day and Now water out helped the swelling. I will post front view once the bruising goes away since you can't make out the result over photo yet with all that brusing.
4 days post op.
Still draining from only one incision, loads of bruising but I bruise like fruit.
Chin lipo was part of the... more
I found a lot of helpful info on this website as I contemplated having lipo, so will add my experience so far. I'm 5'6", weigh 160, and age 56. Have a major muffin top, and even in younger days always had a big belly. As I've gotten older, that stubborn tummy fat just did not bulge. In the summer I tried Exilis, (just posted a review of that, waste of money) and really debated between lipo and... more

I'm still leaking alot out of little holes but that is normal and good. I keep massaging when I remember to get fluid out to make swelling go down faster. Ihave work in am and I hope to stop leaking by... more
I had my consultation on 3/5/10. I meet with a board certified Plastic Surgeon, They were wonderful, He told me what was realistic to expect at my young age of 48. I am 5'6 145LB. I have done alot of research for over a year, and I am glad that I choose a JACHO accredited Surgery Center to have this done and I will be under General Anestheia,They estimate the procedure will last about an 1... more
After lurking on the board reading other people's experiences and reviews, I got a little nervous about my SmartLipo procedure on March 31st. In the past, I had liposuction performed, on my inner and outer thighs and knees. I was unhappy with the results of my liposuction and had gained weight in my stomach and "muffin top". I was also unhappy with the scars left behind fro more
Yesterday, my Dr did smart lipo assisted lipo on my posterior hips. Although I'm happy with my body and I know I don't NEED lipo to make me happy, I did this as a plus and am very aware it's a luxury. It doesn't make me or break me. My goal is to achieve more comfort in clothes, especially pants or bottoms as I always had to lift the waistband up since I had a muffin top. It was annoying... more
I wanted to have my saddlebags removed, but was otherwise happy with my body. My surgeon was overly aggressive though and left me with a sagging bottom (more on one side than the other) and large indents like holes at each hip joint, as well as un-even looking thighs. I look strange and am embarressed to wear the tight work-out clothes now... let alone a swimsuit!! My self-esteem is worse not... more
