Smart Lipo Recovery

  • 3 years ago

Had smart lipo done on November 19 2010 (lower/upper abs flanks side/back) and it turned out successful. Is it true that what I saw was 90% of my results the next day when I removed my bandages before the swelling appeared that evening. How long for these results to take place on my flanks?

I just had this procedure done on Jan 6 on my abs, back, and flanks. The Dr stated that volume loss is immediate (and I did see a difference immediately after the surgery) but the skin tightening is going to take longer. Four days after I feel fine, I am able to walk on a treadmill for about 45 mins (I'm an avid gym goer and not being able to work out is driving me crazy!)I am more swollen now then right after and I have a lump near my belly button which I am starting to massage and was told that's normal. Not much bruising surprisingly as I expected a lot. The worst is on my right side. My sides have already shown an improvement, everything else is still too swollen for me to see a difference but I'm trying to be patient.

I had smartlipo done in Oct. It took me about 3 months for the swelling to go down. It get's better everyday but takes awhile. I am soo happy with my results

It can take a few months for lipo results to appear; the fat is already gone, but it's more or less been replaced with swelling. How are you doing now? Have you seen a change yet?

Thanks for posting. On RealSelf you can find this Q&A and review about male flanks post-Smartlipo surgery

Does this help?
