Your body has just undergone a major trauma and needs to heal. Results from laser lipo can take up to six months to be complete. Wear your garments and stay on a sensible healthy diet

Swelling after Smart Lipo can be present up to 3 months. Compressive garments, daily good massage and a health diet should quicker the healing time.
