7 Months After Smart Lipo and Still No Results

Hi, I had smart lipo 7 months ago on my inner, outer thighs and knees and ive only had complications! First the laser caused a burn which has left a seriously bad scar. My thighs are larger, lumpy and i now have a lot of cellulite which i never had before. Coudl this have been caused by bad smart lipo? I think i may have gone to a bad doctor and now paying the price. HE also didnt suction out the fat which i found out afterwards was not conventional practice. I dont know what to do.

Sorry for your issues. You did get a result but it was a bad result. The problem seems to be the choice of surgeon not the technology. Best to obtain in person opinions to try and effect a better result.

Thank you for the question.

I'm sorry to hear about your dissatisfaction with the procedure.

If you have concerns about the “quality” of your surgeon they may be beneficial for your peace of mind to seek a 2nd opinion. Please make sure you consult with a well experienced board-certified plastic surgeon. Copies of your before pictures and operative report will be helpful when you meet with this physician.

I hope this helps.
