I’m 22 years old, no children, and my weight generally fluctuates between 118-122 pounds. I graduated from college last year and now work as an accountant. Sitting at my desk all day has really taken its toll on my figure. My weight has stayed about the same, but now there are small pockets of fat in my inner thighs, lower abdomen, and upper arms. My diet is near perfect, but my biggest... more

Before this lipo. surgery I was unable to wear a bra that was comfortable and clothes that would properly fit my upper body due to back fat development after a previous breast reconstruction surgery. I was going to have another breast surgery to decrease the implant size. However, after a consultation with Dr. Stoeckel, I realized that the breast size was not the problem. This additional... more
I was 29 when I got lipo done, I wasn't overweight but have 2 kids so there was just some areas that needed help. I had my lower abdomen, posterior and lateral flanks, and inner thighs done. The only difference I saw was that I did loose like 2 inches in my waist but my shape was still the same, he didn't smooth or shape anything and left a lump in my inner thigh (guess he missed it) and a... more
I am only three weeks in since my surgery and I can see huge results! I used to have huge love handles and a little gut that drove me insane. Most of my swelling has gone away except for a minimum amount. Even three weeks later I can see what my final results will be. I am now experiencing the hard lumps in my stomach, which is normal. My scarring from the entry sight is almost gone! I am... more
It’s hard remembering that back in the day I was Captain of my cheerleading squad. It’s even more difficult to remember that I was the one they’d throw around in basket tosses and atop our pyramids. I remember thinking, “Gosh, I’m so thankful I’m not the one on the bottom!” I also used to dance competitively in high school and college. Now, the thought of trying to squeeze... more
I'm 46 years old, never had children and struggled with my weight most of my life. In about a month I'm going in for liposuction for my stomach, flanks, lateral chest wall (bra overhang) and thighs. I hope to do this once, so I might as well go big! Lipo was never on my radar, but I'm not embarrassed to say I need a little help with shedding the fat.
I eat well for the most part but I do... more

I got my legs, butt, and lower abdomen liposuctioned by Dr. Law. After healing, it looked bad, and it still does. I went in to see if he could correct my leg--the inside of my right leg is not smooth anymore, it's had visible bumps since the surgery (you can see this from 20 feet away, the outline of my leg is completely messed up). He told me to lose 5 pounds. That was it. No correction. So,... more
I had a great experience with smart lipo and regular lipo and wanted to share the details. I had my inner thighs, outer thighs, and hips done a few days ago. I was really worried about being in terrible pain due to reading the reviews on this site, but that did not happen for me and a few days later I'm comfortable although still a bit sore.
I had reg lipo AND smart lipo on inner... more
