Smart Lipo and burning pain

If there is some nerve sensitivity after Smart Lipo or any liposuction, it can take months for this discomfort to resolve. While you are waiting for this to improve, you might see a neurologist who, upon examining you, might be able to prescribe medication that will make you more comfortable.

I have never seen residual constant burning pain following Smart Lipo. In over 2,000 done, most have transient burning for  a few weeks. Are you sure it was Smart lipo. What watt unit was used? Is your surgeon a PS?
