Smart Lipo and Vaser Wrap, Abdomen, Hips and Bra and Pubic Area

I would recommend the procedure again. The only thing my Dr told me minimal pain and quick recovery. I disagree, I had severe pain and am still having pain now.

My abdomen is rock hard 4 weeks postop. I went to the doctor followup last week and was started on Medrol steroids(did not help) I see some results but still swollen in the hip area, back and abdomen.

I had the wrap, the bra area did not hurt at all. It feels like my skin is stuck and my muscles are pulling down wards. I am wearing the compression garment, not helping. I weighed 187 5'3" lost several inches weigh 179 now. Dr got 4 canisters of fat during procedure(stated more than usual said I lost 95% of fat in the areas.

When I went to the followup, they told me the hardness and swelling will go down. We will see, I think it was worth it. It hurts more than I anticipated. I have one area above my belly button. I think he is going to touch up a small roll, he told me it would probably be there and it was. my hips and abdomen skin is retracting well.

I am not complaining though because I am starting to see results and I have had 10 people ask me if I have lost weight. I will be able to wear a bikini though, I am 45 and am very happy. Good luck to you...

Smart Lipo with Vaser. Wrap abdomen, Flank, Hips. 4 cansiters removed of fat. Dr states 95% fat removed. 5'3" prior weight 187 weight now 179.

I have hardness and a roll over belly button. hardness in the flank. I just finished Medrol and still hard? When will it go away? I am massaging daily-it hurts still. I cant believe how much pain I am having.

When will the hardness go away?

The staff and Dr are great. He takes his time and explains procedure and even during procedure very compassionate and stops if you need a break...
