I purchased a Groupon for Smart Lipo a month ago and needless to say I was skeptical!! Therefore, I did my homework on Smart Lipo and decided to take my chance. My problem area is my lower abdomen or "kangaroo pouch" that I cannot seem to get rid of regardless how much I work out. I have tried everything from marathons, Pilates, crossfit and Insanity. Nothing seems to get rid of my belly flat.... more
Dr. Livingston did vaser lipo on my neck and abdomen about 2 years ago and I am very happy with the results. The procedures where done in his office using a local anesthetic and there was almost no downtime. I did have to wear a garment for about a week but did not experience any pain or discomfort.

Well, I wish I could say good things, but I can't. It's my own dang fault too. I should have done research and made better choices on the doctor I chose.

I've taken the compression garment off and I can see results but too much swelling to tell what I'm really going to look like.
The dr I used also did... more
I decided to get Vaser Lipo because even though I work out regularly, I could never get rid of the extra fat on my stomach and outer thighs. After researching different liposuction methods, I heard about Vaser Lipo and found out that it is much gentler than regular liposuction and also more effective. So I found a great doctor, Dr Joseph Perlman, in Houston.
I had my stomach, love handles... more
