Hi if anyone is still reading this forum. Did your skin tighten back up ok after the procedures? Did you have big holes in your skin from where the cannula is inserted?

I have an appt. to have the WAL, water assisted lipo, in combination with the smart lipo on Friday, 7/17. I will let you know how it goes. Am having the procedure done in Houston by a Dr. James Kern. He is doing multiple areas, thighs, upper and lower abdomen, upper arms, flanks and back.

I had upper & lower abdomen, bra roll,flanks, and lower back. I would love to get my upper arms and thighs done. Let me know how it goes for you. I also have fibromyagla (sp?)so I think that is why I had so much pain. My doctor ended up knocking me out during the procedure because the dr. said I made a lot of sounds that sounded like I was in pain. I don't remember hardly anything during the procedure. How much are you paying for all of those areas? I paid $5,500. I think I am really not the best candidate due to being a lot overweight. I just needed to jump start my weight loss..... I am motivated to loss more weight. Good luck and keep me posted.

I am having upper arms, back including bra roll, flanks, upper and lower abdomen including pubic area, inner thighs and chin. The cost is $6500 and includes both WAL and smart lipo to tighten the skin. He can only take a max of 5 litres, apprx. 11 pounds of fat during the procedure. He said that is a lot of fat. I will let you know how it goes. Thank you for all of your input.

I have an appt with Dr. Kern's staff on Monday. I just wanted to know how satisfied you were with your results. I am in Houston.

Very satisfied so far. Tony even came to our house to bring some addtl garments last Saturday as I needed more compression on my back. Jodi goes above and beyond.. I had so many areas done and am starting to see a difference, now that the swelling is going down. I like the personal attention you receive. The doctor is quite nice and did a very good job. Some bruising, but virtually painless procedure. Good luck and let me know what you think.

Did you have your procedure with Dr. Kern? If so, were you pleased with the outcome? I am wanting lipo of the stomach area and chickened out because of having to use a general. If you had your procedure how was it being awake?

Im a big chicken to and was extremely nervous about general anastesia.....the sedatives they gave me ended up knocking me out (which they said happens most times) and I dont remember a thing. Dont worry! Its not so bad....i had my surgery yesterday and im akready up and about. Not too much pain for me, more discomfort than anything. They also said to do some light exercise a 7-10 days after surgery to prevent swelling. Need to keep the blood flowing!

I have an appt. to have body-jet procedure done on June 23. I will let everyone know how it goes. It is very similar to vaser, but using water instead.

I had the body-jet or WAL procedcure on June 23. It's been around 2 1/2 weeks and so far I am very pleased with the results. One of the benefits the procedure is, "some people can go back to work the next day." That is totally false for me. The next day and night I was in severe pain. I did take pain pills, couldn't have done it without them. I honestly think it hurt more than having a baby. The doctor took out 1500cc and I think that is one reason I hurt so badly afterwards. BUT I must say that I am very happy with the results. I go in for my 1 month follow up in a week. I'll try to add some before and after pics. I am still swollen, but bruising was not that bad.

Thank you.... what part of your body did you have done? Do you have any hanging skin? I am going in this Friday for WAL and smart lipo..
  • Reply
Yes, I did have hanging skin above my pubic area. It is much better, and I expect it to get better after more time.
