I'm definitely going to post pics once... more
I just had my surgery Feb 15, 2013. I am 2 weeks out. I feel good but really sore! Dr. Kortesis and his staff was awesome. They removed 15 pds of fat! I have always been concerned about my weight. I was up and down on my weight through diet and exercise. Reading Realself help to insure me that I wanted to do this. I can see results already after 1 week. There have been a few things challenging... more
I wanted to sort of journal through my days of smart lipo.

I knew for years I would one day have liposuction performed on my chest. I am an athletic male that has completed duathlons and half marathons. I unfortunately had stubborn fat around my chest area and flank. I had a bit of a stomach but nothing too embarrassing. I am 29 years old, I love the gym, I don’t drink, I don’t smoke. I was a good candidate for this procedure. Anywho, in all I had... more
