I have researched smartlipo for two years. I even went and got a consultation 2 years ago but the price scared me away. I am 43 years old, I exercise moderately but I am very active with my two kids. I have always had a body image issue, mainly around my middle as that is where I carry almost all of my weight. Lately it has gotten to the point that I don't want to go out with my husband as I am self consious of the pooch that I have not been able to get rid off. With alot of consideration and discussion with my husband we have decided to go forward with the surgery. My biggest fear is the return of the pooch as the middle is where the majority of my family carry their weight. But I know with proper diet and continued exercise I CAN DO IT.
Tomorrow is my procedure and I am very scared. I...

I have posted the week 4 pictures. I know one comment was made the possibility of my partial dissatisfaction was the placement of my underwear on my belly. So I took an extra shot with the underwear below my belly button and across my belly button, which is where the underwear naturally sits. I will say that in the pre procedure picture where my underwear is below my belly button that the underwear would be forced to ROLL down due to the size of my belly. I look at that picture and laugh and remember having to constantly adjust my underwear because it ROLLED.
I have come to realize that my slight dissatisaction is with my hips. I have always been a hippy (not the one from the 60's...lol) kind of person. And the pictures do show a redution in that area. I truely was expecting a bigger reduction of fat and to be more proportionate to my back side. I still have to wear my pants with a big gap in the back and if I try to puch them down on my hips they just ride back up to sit on my hips and reside around my waist. Which is what was happening before my procedure. I look at the week 1 side pic and the week 4 side pic and I think my hips look smaller at week 1. Anyone else think that?
My stomache area seems a little lopsided now. It isn't something that you can tell in these pictures. Hopefully with more time and wearing of these darn garments it will improve.
I have gone back to the gym, just doing the treadmill at this point per the doctor. But if feels good to be back at the gym no matter what I am doing.
Well I have completed week 5 and I will tell you I...

My Doctor: Join to view doctor's name
I gave this a 4 star only because I was in so much pain at the end and I feel more pain meds would have helped that. The staff was fantastic. Sara was my nurse and I felt like she was an old friend. She made me feel very at ease. During the last half hour when I was experiencing so much pain I know Dr. Mahlik and Sara were making conversation to try and get my mind focused somewhere else. Never once did I sense that they were becoming frustrated with my "ouchy noises". I would recommend Dr. Mahlik.
