I got my surgery done July 11th and I am loving it so far. The surgery itself was a great experience although I did feel some discomfort in my lower ab due to having some scar tissue from previous smartlipo I had in 2013.I had my butt roll, posterior bra fat roll, full axillary sides , my upper and lower ab done as well as my flanks. I have a big frame and am not naturally thin so it has... more
I have been wanting Lipo for a really really long time. Went to a consult last year but put it off because I was being cheap! So started my journey again this year looking for the perfect doctor. I scheduled 5 consultation appointments after "stalking" real self all day everyday for a week. I received prices from $5,000-$11,000 for the amount of Lipo I needed and the "results I expected"... more
I would like to enter into this next season looking/feeling great, able to more nicely fit my clothes and feeling more healthy with less fat in my midsection. My consultation is scheduled for tomorrow with Dr. Kulkin. My communication by phone to set up tomorrow's appointment was pleasant. We'll see
Should I have this procedure done by him, I will definitely be one to log my honest... more
So I'm a really disappointed and frustrated. After weeks of talking to account reps and researching and narrowing down a physician to do my procedure. I was all set and flew in town to have my procedure and everything you can think of went wrong!!! After being contacted at last the minute saying my apt was move to a later time during that day and then sitting in the office for 3 hours I... more
I had an appointment with Dr. Cole in Norcross. He advertises tummy tuck alternatives. He uses Smart Lipo and skin tightening and Thermage to achieve the best results. I have what's called an "apron" hangover tummy. . .although not extremely bad. I know that a tummy tuck will give me the best results, but I'm afraid of surgery, pain and recovery time and I'm happy with the fact that my... more
Throughout my entire adult life, I've been just under 5'7 and fluctuated between 125-140 pounds (mostly in the 120's but the last few years, 135-140, which I'm trying to lose ugh). BUT no matter what size I am, I've always had extra on the stomach/love handles (aka flanks) area - I've always had a muffin top. For whatever reason, my body stores a lot of fat there, either because I have a lot... more
After obsessing about this for a long time, reviewing treatment alternatives, I decided to have SmartLiposuction. So far I'm not feeling very smart. I'm wondering if I wasted my money and put myself through unnecessary torture. At two weeks post treatment, I'm still in constant discomfort and look terrible. Hopefully things will improve soon. more
Hello RS family I am scheduled for SmartLipo I will be getting a wrap around as well as a fat transfer. I am just a little scared because this is my first surgery and I was told that it would be an all day surgery with local anesthesia. I do not want to be in pain but I am very sensitive to anything more than ibuprofen and am scared of respiratory suppression but I am excited about my pre op... more
Tired of the gut and back fat. Go away for Valentine Day w/family. Sitting around having female talk w/cousins and found out about Dr. Boutte. Had cousin text her and when returned home made an appt. Surgery was on my 32 anniversary. What a gift to myself. Abs, love handles, bar roll & low back.
Added pictures. I am very happy with my results.

I'm a 35 year old mother of one I had a c-section in 2002 and ever since I struggled to get rid of this bulging hanging stomach. I used to work out a lot but now because I work on my feet and I have my own hair salon running a business and being a single mom just does not give me enough extra time to stay in the gym 4 to 5 days a week! really my problem area is my stomach!!! I love my curves... more
Very excited and nervous. had consultation yesterday and loved Crystal's bedside manner, made me feel even more ecstatic about my transformation.

Although, I'm pretty sore I am so glad that I finally did something for myself. Didn't do too much on day 2 but on day 3 I was able to cook breakfast and wash dishes. One thing that bothers me is the itching. Yes! I know it's part of the healing process. The Benadryl has helped some. I'm very impressed that I was able to speak to the nurse on a Saturday.
Hi RS family I am 16 days post op... more
I started researching Doctors for smart lipo and ran across Dr. Windell Boute. Let me just say after only a week of conversing with her staff (Crystal) I was made comfortable and was ready to have my procedure done. Dr Windell was getting ready to take a vacation, and was booked up until late June. However, she came in on her off day to perform my surgery. During the procedure I can barley... more
I had done lots of research on here and throughout the web and came across Dr. Davis-Boutte. I really liked what people had to say about her and her work. So I contacted her office and made an appointment for the next week! I was so excited to get an appointment that soon. The office is 2 1/2 hours from my house so I was able to email pics of myself to the office assistant and she emailed me... more
I was always curvy but had a flat stomach. I had a hysterectomy and that all changed. I never thought I cared that much about vanity but the change in my shape specifically my hanging belly disturbs me tremendously. I never thought I would consider plastic surgery but this is something I have to do for me. I have lost 30 pounds in contemplation of this procedure. I am hoping this... more
I am going in for my consultation 8am Tuesday. I am looking to book surgery at her soonest date and will be taking what I estimated from Dr. Windells current promotions ($2499 upper & lower stomach+ $750 flanks+ $2000 BBL)... The BBL is still questionable due to the fact I have a donk & I have been told by a different doctor that she was not giving me anymore ASS lol!!! Not too much to over do... more

For as long as I can remember, I have always looked out for others. Now it's time for me to think of myself. I've got to get this body in order! Initially, I was going to get the gastric sleeve, but I've since lost 24 pounds and I think I can do this myself. I'm hoping that you guys can help support and guide me and I the same. Life is too not put yourself first. I'm consider smart lipo... more
