How Painful is Smart Lipo During and Afterwards?

I have an extremely LOW tolerance to pain and a high tolerance for pain medication.

Discomfort after Smart Lipo should be minimal to none

Smartlipo procedures for some reason seem to be significantly less painful than traditional liposuction. Most patients say it feels like they did too many sit-ups.

Many patients require only one or two pain tablets. Some require nothing but Tylenol. The best plan is to discuss this with your doctor beforehand. Construct a backup plan with him in case you have more pain than is expected.

Plan ahead and all should go well.
