Why Can't I See Immediate Results from Smart Lipo?

I had my procedure on may 31st on my upper/lower abs. So far I cannot see one bit of improvement. my surgeon was a board certified plastic surgeon. Most review I read people see instant results. I feel super depressed because i look the same. Im 5'8" and 167 lbs. pic of before is on my review through my profile.

Lipo results


Typically patients see immediate results the day after but then the swelling (healing process) kicks in.  If you haven’t seen any results as of 8/15, make an appointment and see your doctor. Your physician should have had some follow up appointments scheduled.

Hard to upload the photos, always best to post to this site. Since I'm a trainer for Smart Lipo I am at a loss for you not seeing very early results. Either you were not a great candidate or the surgeon did not accomplish the goals anticipated. There is not much I can do over the internet.  Sorry

I don't think most people see instant results. There is a lot of fluid injected during the procedure . Between that and the traumatic swelling, results take a long time
