How soon do you see results with Smart LIpo?

I am having Smart Lipo soon, and I was wondering how soon you can see results. I know what I have read, but I wanted to hear from those who have actually had the procedure. Also, I am worried that the compression garment won't fit under my clothes comfortably and that I will have nothing to wear to work!! Any input on the procedure would be helpful and much appreciated. Thanks!!!

you have to be patient...it takes a full year to see the real results.....and yes you still have to eat healthy and do moderate exercise. I hate exercising but do a little now and again. I wear my corset for 4-6 hours a day, it helps to curve you. I am pleased but will get my upper back done soon.

I had my tumescent lipo Friday, went back to the dr Saturday and already seen nice results . I m skinny and only had 500cc taking out of my flanks. I'm almost one week post op and I can tell I'm much smaller. But I also tend to heal very fast and think it really depends on you and your body personally . Some might see results right away others not till 6 month after.

I had my lower/upper stomach and flanks done 3 days ago. I instantly noticed a difference. My shirts fit so much better and are much looser. I just started swelling a bit yesterday and I'm pretty tender. So far I like my results, every day is an improvement look wise and healing wise!

When I first had my procedure- he took out less than a pound of fat (abs/flanks). Immediately dropped from size 8 to a 6. I am an avid runner and lost about 9 lbs after and went to a size 4 within 4 months

I had laser lipo - for both areas it was about $4500 (2007). My MD - evened out my hips and helped flatten my tummy. And barely took out 3/4 of a pound of fat. Laser Lipo worked well for me.

Well I am 2 months post op for smart lipo. I am seeing results as well as other around me. I am still sore and get many small fat bumps, which I massage daily. My doc told me that I did not have to wear my garment at night anymore but should still have it on during the day. I am still wearing it on occasion at night , not really sure why but it is almost like I feel I need to lol. I have not seen a lot of weight loss, but I am noticing inches on my upper and lower abs and a small amount on my flanks. I was told it could take up to 6 months to see a complete change. I am actually very happy with the results I am seeing and of course would love to see it happen faster. I found that it was hard to find clothing to wear with the garment also, especially in the warmer weather. So I chose to wear the garment when at home and after my one month checkup, my doc told me that I could switch to Flexee or something compatible. I was also told to fold a washcloth and place it at my lower abs when I have my garment on. I questioned it but I notice now why. My belly looks much better after a few hours of the towel there. Very happy with my results....

I had smartlipo performed on my entire stomach and hips this past April 23. I have lost a total of 7 inches from my waist. I'm extremely happy with my reslts thus far. I wore the extra tight garment the first 10 days now just wear a form fitted gurdle. I feel every ayim shrinking a little bit. I haven't even been to the gym...and eating like I normally do. I was back to work oe day later!!

It's been 10 days and I'm just now feeling mostly better other than swelling and a little soreness. 7 inches? I'm in the exact same size as I was before. Who was YOUR doctor? Obv mine was an idiot. I paid almost 10k for upper lower abs, a teeny bit off hips and teeny bit off lower back. I got screwed. Want to let everyone know who this guy is so no one goes to him.

My Dr. is located in long island..where are you? You definelty paid too much for what you had done. I'm going back June 11 for my back and back flanks.I was informed to have smart lipo done in sessions...its not safe to have too much removed all at once..your body needs time to heal. Be patient, everyones body reacts differently. I still have numbness on my lower stomach.

I told him at my post op I was disappointed with my results. He was dismissive saying "I was gonna be happy" when I questioned a revision he told me "we're not going to discuss it"!!!!!! UNREAL
