Well this is the beginning of my post. I will go in on May 29th to have Smart Lipo. This location is so far from were I live but let me be very clear. From the 1st phone call I knew that this was more so than not going to be the place for me. The front desk lady (sorry for not remembering her name) spent 30mins breaking every question I had down. I made my appt she even worked that out for me.... more
I have been looking on this sight for years..In the past I looked into getting a tummy tuck and was looking for eevery and any peice of info i could receive. Unfortunately a tummy tuck was not the healthy thing for me due to me having sickle cell disease, so I stopped my visits with Dr. Nowazaradan a weight loss surgeon and began to look into liposuction. I lived in the town center above a... more
Had smartlipo yesterday tumescent under local with twighlight meds. My experience,contrary to most on this forum, was absolutely terrific. Got to the facility at 1:30 was finished by 4:30. Actual start time was around 2.
During the procedure the only slightly painful part was the numbing with a needle for the cannula holes. Occasionally I would feel a twinge kinda like a pinch or a tickle,... more
I'm 43 years old and since my daughter was born 16 years ago, I have wanted to get this done. My stomach was completely messed up. It left with 2 bellys and lots of stretch marks. I was able for years to camouflage it and try to hide it but it has always bothered me. This year I was finally in a position to get it done. I researched and researched and found a DR that I was comfortable... more
I had my upper abdomen, flanks and waist done. I haven't had the outcome I'm hoping for just yet, but I know it takes time. My overall down time was short. I went in the day after Christmas and on the 29th of December all the draining had stopped and not much discomfort at all. I am now all most 3 months post op and not seeing any change in my abdomen. I have a protruding abdominal muscle... more
I’m in my mid thirties and started noticing an increased of fat deposit in my inner and out thighs. I went for a consultation with Dr. Shusterman to address my concerns and he recommended Smart Lipo. I had the procedure on April 25, 2013. The results have been amazing. The appearance of cellulite has diminished and an increase in my skin’s elasticity. And of course no more of the... more
My experience was amazing. I can’t wait to see my final results after all the swelling goes away. It has only been one week and I can already see a drastic change. The pain and bruising is very minimal. I was a little hesitant to do the smart lipo since I was not as educated about it but after seeing the bruising and pain from regular lipo I am glad I went with the smart lipo. more
I had 1000 cc's removed from my upper and lower abdomen and flanks on May 10. There was no real pain, just soreness in the first few days. I have been for 2 lymphatic massages and have scheduled my third. They seem to help with the lumpiness and the numbness after a day or so. The heat in Houston is really affecting my swelling. I get lumpy and swollen when I spend any time at all in the... more
Well I am 35yrs old my weight ranges from 150-160. I am 5'2 and I am having my upper and lower abs plus my flanks next week. I am very nervous and anxious I really hope and pray this procedure gives me the results I desire and need. I have researched my doctor extensively and I even looked on the better business bureau website to see if she had any negative reviews. I am positive I received a... more
I am 5'4", 120 lbs. I have always been "genetically" blessed for the most part, but after two kids, I have a very large lower abdomen pooch that cannot be fixed with exercise or diet. After 2 years of it getting seemingly worse, I began researching options online and went on 3 consultations. All 3 doctors seemed nice and experienced, but when I went to Dr. Adams, the nurse that sat in on the... more
Dr. Kratschmer performed Smart Lipo on my abdomen and flanks last year and I am very pleased with the results. The staff is friendly and helpful. It took about 3-4 months to see full results of the procedure. I was worried for the first 1-2 months because of the swelling, however my abdomen is now much flatter than it was before the procedure. more
I am a 43 year-old mother of three. I brought these beautiful beings into this world by c-section. After my last baby (in 2008), I began to notice that while I got down to as low as 116 pounds (I'm 5 ft.), there was a little bulge in my tummy. I began to call it my kangaroo pouch. LOL. Well, after this child, my husband and I also decided to go on birth control. With this, I began to slowly... more
I had the smart lipo done 3 months ago but haven't really seen much result yet, though adviced by my surgeon to wait for at least 6 months to see the final result. I was a little optimistic at the beginning but is getting more dissapointed as the days goes on. I'm not even sure if he had really removed enough fat on my abdomen & seems nothing on the annoying fat under my breasts.
I'm getting my procedure done in 8 days, i'm feeling very nervous, anxious, scared, excited, a little bit of everything. I'm not sure whether to go through this procedure or not, as I am hearing lots of pros and cons. I'm 32 years old have 4 kids and weigh about 150 lbs., I'm only getting my abs and flanks done. I don't have fat anywhere else. But I'm not sure anymore if I want to go through... more
Hello World, I'm a 33 woman who is 5'8 and 170 lbs I have 2 beautiful daughters who I love dearly they are 10yrs apart (yes I really waited awhile). Well after my last daughter I lost a lot of weight, but my stomach and back fat I could not get rid of. I honestly can say I think those areas are the most stubborn areas on my body, I do exercise, but not like I should, and I do eat... more
I had my tummy, upper and lower done 17 days ago and I have already gone down a whole clothing size! I have always had a pouchy belly! Pre-pregnancy and a bit larger after 3 babies. I am amazed at the difference in just 17 days. Easy procedure, wonderful results. I am very pleased. I still have a few swollen areas, but faithfully wear my compression garment as instructed. I want maximum results! more
I was afraid because I had lipo done years ago, but relocated shortly thereafter and never attended any follow treatment, thus my swollen stomach. It was something I was just prepared to live with. The uneven bulge showed in a dress I wanted to wear and I decided to do something about it. Smart lipo. I am a few hours out from my recovery. Some parts of the procedure I remember and others I... more
I went to consultation for smart lipo on my abdominal area and did my research and its funny when you look up Smart Lipo all you see is positive stuff and once something goes wrong all you see is negative. Well here is my story....
I am a fit 30 yr old standing at 5'3 and 115 lbs and wanted a Kelly Rippa stomach and ended up getting a Tara Reid stomach :-( It has only been a little over 2... more
I had my smart lipo performed today. But First I must extend HUGE thank you to those who have shared before me because I was more prepared for this procedure than ever possible without you.
After seeing another local doctor and leaving in shock over the quoted price, I followed the referral of someone on this site and was told about another local doctor. After my consultation and... more
