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!!!

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 got my flanks and lower back done and after my lest side was done I had to use the bathroom so I got up and looked in the mirror and right away I could tell my left waist is curvier than the right

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!

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

I had the tickle lipo done in oct.2011. Upper lower abs flanks and arms. My waist was much smaller after the procedure and I was very happy with that. My tummy was flat also but not as much as I wanted.... My arms, the problem before was that when my arms are down, a piece of fat sticks out automatically so that was my issue and it was fixed after the tickle lipo.BUT they are still a little big and I'm not happy with them... Also the doc was suppose to laser lipo my arms along with the tickle lipo and he did not do it... For I'm not sure why.... I need to follow up on why that wasnt done... After the surgery I Walked on the treadmill a lot. And then my eating habits went bad... I wasn't watching my diet and I didn't exercise enough as I knew I should have been.... My tummy started growing again -_- my fault tho I shouldve been exercising and watching the foods I ate. My arms stayed the same. I left the full body garment on 24/7 since the beginning or this year and took the arm one off after the 2nd month as it was a pain to have on. Now back to my tummy. The doc. Tickle lipo'd it and also did some laser .... Didn't notice much tightness on my tummy either so I'm not happy with that... I think I gain like 5 Pounds after but I just dropped it so now I'm back at my original weight and I'm in the process of loosing more now and dieting better as I didn't want to tho away $4400 total cost... Hopefully all goes well now. It's been about 3 weeks since started to focus on getting back in shape. Im also hoping I won't have to redue the procedure but I will if I need to. It wasn't too bad. If you have anything else you'd like to know please ask !

I dont see any results though i had it from my chest to my kness! A month passed but i look fat.
  • Reply
yes. I had the procedure a week ago and see minimal results. No drop in clothing size. 10k is alot of money to not see a HUGE difference.
  • Reply
Same here. Had it done one week ago. No huge change. 1800 cc removed. what are you gonna do? Im going to have a revision....which isnt free....
  • Reply
Don't do a revision- it can take up to six months to see full results.
  • Reply
NO...are you sure you used a reputable Dr. I saw results 2 days later!
  • Reply
He sure looked reputable....I got ripped off. Big time. Paid 10k for upper lower abs teeny bit off hips and teeny bit off lower back. Still have fat in upper and lower abs. No pun intended but I'm sick to my stomach over this. I got the wool pulled over my eyes. I want a 70% refund. At my post op visit (5 days later)I told him I was disappointed with the results. He was dismissive when I told him my concern...said "your gonna be happy, trust me" when I questioned him about a revision he told me "we weren't going to discuss it". WHAT???????

You will see results. It takes a month to really see a small change. But I am 2 months post op and am seeing some awesome changes in my inches. Be patient. it is definitely not immediate...
