Just post up my before pictures 2 1/2 mnts to my nes stomach :D


Hello, and how are you? I just had my stomach done on 1/25/13 and all I can say is to be mentally prepared because the pain and the garment is no joke. The results are good, but only if we can skip the swollen and pain part. Best of luck in your journey......

Thanks so much ,yes ive been reading many reviews, is their any advise you could give me on what to do a week before the procedure and after please :)
As for me, I drink lots of water, I take a vitamin A, Zinc, and a Vitamin C pill allm seperately it helps with the immune system, and other than rest I think that would be all you need to do.......

Does anyone know if i should loose weight before...

Does anyone know if i should loose weight before smart lipo...??what was your experience?


Babyfat I hope that you have realistic expectations. I say that because I went in and had smartlipo 4 months ago and even though overall I feel and look good, I was left with loose skin. My PS told me I didn't need a TT from the beginning and again at my three month mark. I am to the point were I don't swell much anymore and don't have tingling sensations, nor soreness nor numbness, all signs of healing. What I'm trying to say is not to discourage you but to prepare you for what's ahead. I went in thinking I was going to get rid of the kangaroo pouch and have a flat tummy and what I have now is skin fold over my lower abs. Hopefully you have good skin and once you heal it will be tight again. Mine is not.

I haven't lost any weight, well I take that back I was on a weight loss program when I booked my procedure, but I had to stop because you can't have a dramatic weight gain or loss? So, I had to quit, but I think as long as you have a plan once you get where you need or want to be you will be ok. My motto is: " get the body first, then work to keep it!" I think that you will be more ap to complete something if you've invested a great deal verses these yo-yo diets we go on and quit. This is just my personal opinion.......

Finally, finally my smartlipo has a date, ohhhhh gosh i have mixed emotions!!!!.....i turned in my last payment and was telling hubby how scarec i felt and he asked why if this is something you have always wanted right......and than i felt soo selfish, maybe that money could have been used for something else,......or who knows...mann do i feel like a child who has done something bad or wrong.....
But i shouldn't feel like this right.....

Ok another thing is eversince i went in for my consultation for the smartlipo, i have not felt confortable being intimate with the hubby :0 :'( feels so weird, now i feel uncomfortable being naked around him, eventhough hes very supporti and loving, is this normal or am i the only one that had gone thru this?????
