- 1 Jul 2009
I had Vaser liposuction and SmartLipo for skin tightening on June 29, 2009. I will be writing monthly results and obtaining pictures eventually from my doctor (sorry no digital camera!)
-Bruising and swelling but equivalent to the result of a brutal circuit set at the gym (no pain no gain right?)
-Compression garment must be worn 24/7 for the first month though; my doctor firmly believes this will help in the fuild passing and skin tightening
-Instantly noticed reduction in ab fat and flanks; expecting more improvement across the next 3-6 months as junk fluid (liquified fat etc) continues to pass out of my body and swelling goes down.
-Heading back to work with one day post-operative rest.
Why I did it
I was a fat child and lost a lot of weight heading into my early 20s (about 60 pounds). My abs and flanks reduced as well but I could not reduce anymore.
I could have paid $4K USD for a nice vacation this year for pleasure and enjoyment, or spend the same to make a dramatic positive change to my body appearance which would last me for life with proper care ... $4K USD doesn't seem that expensive when you put it in that perspective =)
I was advised SmartLipo alone wouldn't get me the results I wanted, only Vaser Lipo would do this. However, the doctor used SmartLipo to tighten my skin after. I'd ask around for different medical opinions ... i.e. perform your own due diligence!
