Is It True That a Second Smartlipo Procedure is Necessary to Correct Dimpling?

I am the outcome of a poor result with Smart lipo. I am being told that all Smart lipo procedures are not a one time procedure and that the reason(s) that the result is not smooth is because a touch up is necessary. Is this true? Honestly, I cannot afford anymore devastating results to my body. I really need your honesty. Also, I am being advised of a secondary Smart lipo w/o much fat removal. (called skin smoothing and re-attaching skin to muscle) along with tri-active laser treatments. Good move for my case. Every day I am noticing more and more contour problems. Need your expertise.

Smartlipo Touchup


From the pictures, it looks like you have divots which are very difficult to fix if possible at all.  Without pre-op pictures it is difficult to comment on your results.  However, I doubt that a secondary procedure will make much of a difference.  It is very important that you see a highly trained, board certified plastic surgeon whenever you are having a plastic surgery procedure.  Good luck.
