I wanted to get rid of that stubborn fat around the middle that won't go away with diet and exercise. I had smartlipo on May 9th of the upper and lower abdomen, waist and hips. Swelling peaked around day 4 and i looked and felt 7 mos. pregnant. Swelling started to go down around day 10 and i can see some outline of waist and new tummy now. The incision in my navel became infected yesterday and... more

I went in for liposuction of the abdomen and flanks. I needed a starting point for my diet. I have never been this heavy in my life and it was starting to affect me emtionally.

I am not expecting to be totally fat because realistically I know I... more

I do notice a slight difference in my thighs, but they are... more

One year ago (3/11) I had plastic surgery – lipo to flanks, abdomen, inner thigh, hip area and buttocks (unconsented) performed by Dr. Lyle Back of Cherry Hill, NJ.

It feels as though I've been punched repeatedly and it is very difficult getting up and down. Although once I am seated and still there's no pain at all.
When I first came home yesterday... more
