I was always chubby. It wasn't until i joined the military when I lost the weight. It didn't matter what I did, but I was left with a small pouch of belly fat in my lower abs. It was recommended by Dr. Nees to perform smartlipo. He ruined my stomach! Have lumps, scar tissue and and an indentation where he removed too much fat. Don't ever go to Strax Rejuvenation! more
It's was a joke. They don't mention on their site that your on a STRICT diet. Of coarse you'll "loose inches". They tell you the results are better if you go on their Cookie Diet, another way for them to make money. I defiantly would look for an alternate method. They also will tell you that you don't loose weight just inches. more
Procedures: I had lipo on my flanks, abs, middle and upper back and lipo breast reduction.
Reason for the Lipo: I was in shape but have always had a few areas that even when at my thinnest, the parts were not as flat or as firm as I wanted.
I had been thinking about lipo for years. Finally I made up my mind to get a consult and "go for it." Based on on-line reviews which... more
I am 22 years old and weigh 166. I have been yoyo dieting since I was 15 and always end up back at 166. I have probably spent thousands already in an attempt to lose weight, and would probably spend way more than the lipo in the future. So I figured that I would win this war of the weight now and save myself the headache and vicious cycle of weight loss. I live in FL and am always in a bathing... more
I had this proceedure done on Monday, May 10 and it was totally worth it. I had my abs and flanks done. What you don't get told without research is the great products available to heal prior to surgery and after surgery. Also, since it is elective surgery your pre-medical clearance may not be covered.
I went in at 1pm, on monday and pretty much was groggy after surgery. I paid extra to... more
It will be 4 weeks tomorrow since my surgery. I had the hopes of it being all better by now, but the experience has been horrendous. Not only was it terribly painful, but my surgeon misled me into thinking it would be a very quick recovery. He told me that I would only have to wear my compression garment for 5 days! I am still wearing it 24 hours a day, and frankly afaid not to, as I am... more
I'm 22 years old, and have always had issues with my body. I'm VERY petite from the waist up, but VERY bottom heavy. Being about 4'9, it has always been a problem finding pants that fit my tiny waist, big butt, big thighs, and short legs! I'll never have skinny legs, and that's ok because I like my curves. I work out, and eat right most of the time, but nothing seemed to... more
I had Smart Lipo back in March. I had my flanks done as well as outer and inner thighs. I was in pretty good shape to begin with, just wanted to smooth some things out.Recovery wasn't bad. The day of surgery was uncomfortable. But I had it done on a Friday and went back to work without a problem on Monday. There was some swelling and bruising, but by the time I was out of the garment (one... more
I've been reading about SmartLipo and looked on the website and watched all of the TV broadcasts of the procedure, Lots of "LunchtimeLipo now here!" According to one broadcast, Britney Spears had hers done in between rehab stops.
Well, folks, this is a misnomer. I took off from work on Friday, had abdomen, flanks, upper arms and inner thighs done. Stayed home Monday, too. The... more
