I am so excited! My date is exactly one week away. I am having a SL wrap around and fat transfer (BBL). I am hoping for a great outcome this time around. I had the traditional lipo about a year ago and my doctor only took out 900 cc from abs, bra roll, & love handles. I kept hoping for positive results but saw very little change. Disappointed and out of $3000. Two months ago I start... more
Where do I start.....I met with Dr. Kulkin a week ago and instantly I knew that he was the doctor that I wanted. However, I still went to meet with two other doctors and I ended up going with Dr. Kulkin. From our initial meeting, he made me feel comfortable and I knew that I could trust him. A week later, I scheduled my procedure and today was the day! How was it? I was so nervous and... more

Hey Ladies! I can't believe I'm actually doing this!! Sigh.. So over the pass year and a half, it's safe to say I just let my body go. I've gained over 20 lbs that I just need gone ASAP. So I've decided to take a leap of faith. My first step is getting smartlipo done on stubborn areas that seem to never go away with exercise and proper diet! I do workout hard Monday-Friday but still, that's... more
I have been looking at Windell C. Davis-Boutte, MD, of Liburn, GA for some time now. After seeing results from patients of hers, I'm sure she's who I want. I am currently in the process of contacting her office. I hope this goes well! My main problem areas are my abdomen and arms. I'm too scare to do a tummy tuck so this seems to be my equal medium.
I am super excited! I have my first in... more
Smart Lipo on bra roll. The procedure went really well. Only Downfall, I didn't know a catheter was involved. Really groggy day of procedure. Next day, mild soreness and hard to lay down for about two weeks. Was told I wouldn't see full results for about six months, amazingly I saw results after 8 days. Still wearing compression garment. Dr. Boutte's. bedside manner: Excellent. The assistant,... more
I'm a 34 year old married mom of 4. I've always been happy with my body but my stomach area has always bothered me. Last year after I was determined that I was not going to have any more kids I set out on a quest to have something done. I was set on a tummy tuck but couldn't afford the downtime and days from work.My sister who works for a group of surgeons told me about another procedure... more
I workout regularly but still have areas on my stomach I can't seem to get rid of. I had been debating for a couple of years now. Dr. Boutte came highly recommended so I decided to go with her. My experience so far had been wonderful. So far it's worth it. I was sleepy after my procedure but was able to go home and interact with my family. Today I woke up sore but not really in pain. I am so... more

Im a nervous wreck as the procedure is next week. After reading several reviews and watching numerous videos - i now believe i should have gone with a board certified surgeon for this procedure. Its too late now, money is paid. Im... more
I've always dreamed of a flat tight stomach but never had the time or motivation to dedicate to a healthy lifestyle to achieve the results. I've always wanted to do lipo but was always hesitant because of the risks. I heard that smart lipo was a less risky surgery so I decided to go for it. I contacted Dr. Boutte's office and was put in touch with Crystal Johnson in appointments. I made my... more

As long as I can remember I had "love handles." even when I was a lot thinner with a six-pack I still had them but they weren't that bad at the time.
I've done a lot of research before deciding to go through with Laser Lipo (Smart Lipo). This site helped tremendously with my decision making and of course the support of my husband. Well my consultation was last Thursday, the 10th at Sono... more

I had my procedure done January 17,2014. I will say that it was not worth it because I now have scars and suffered a 2nd degree burn to my stomach. I had my upper and lower abdomen done, and flanks. I have a scar on my left flank and burns on my lower abdomen. My procedure was done by Dr Shotwel at American Lipo Center Atlanta GA. I have been using this burn ointment that I ordered from... more
I went to Georgia Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery in Austell, GA. to have liposuction of my back (bra roll, flanks, love handles). I chose Georgia Plastic because of the stellar credentials and awards of the chief doctor, Dr. Stanley Okoro that were detailed on their website. However, I ended up consulting with and having my procedure done by the other doctor who practice there. Her name is... more

Just left my consult with Dr. Boutte. I am all set, paid, and ready for my Smart Lipo procedure on Feb 28, 2014. I know that I will still have loose skin (went from 290 at twins delivery to 170 currently) and will do a mini tuck in a year or so. Right now my twins are just 2.5 yo and require too much of me to be down for the recovery a tummy tuck takes.
Well I am 24 hrs post surgery and... more
I am having my Smart Lipo procedure tomorrow afternoon with Dr. Boutte in Lilburn, GA. I live in AL and had my consultation with via phone mid-November, 2013. I was pleasantly surprised that she personally replied my email requesting info about the procedure. She was very easy to talked to and was detailed/thorough. Anyway, I had sent her my pics & was told that I could benefit from Smart Lipo... more
I went in for a consultation and the girl who did it was great and made me feel very comfortable. The doctor really didnt go into anything or say where he would do incisions or even give me an expectation. I'm not obese but I do have some trouble spots I'm ready to get rid of. I want to make sure before pouring 6k into this, that it meets the expectations of the clients that have used this... more
