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 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
