Holding in Stomach - Atlanta, GA

I am having smart lipo on my upper and lower abdomen. I am very nervous. I used to have a flat stomach, but through the years, my flat stomach is no more. I have tried everything - exercise, diets, starvation, pills, you name it i've tried it. My friend had the same procedure done a few weeks and she looks fabulous! I will let you know how everything turns out.

Today is the 2nd day of post surgery. Everything is going fine! I just have some swelling and soreness. I can already tell a huge difference even with the surgery. I don't remember anything during the surgery. I wish I could have asked he doctor how much he got out of me, but oh well. I already went in to see him on yesterday (1st day post op). I will go back in October for 3 month follow up. I suggest everybody go to Sono Bello in Atlanta, They are the bomb! Just do it. It's your life.

Today is the 3rd day of post surgery. Today is not a good day. I have swelling, bloating, and just feel crappy. I hope it gets better.

Today is 15 days post op. I am beginning to see light through the tunnel. the past few days have been horrible. my stomach looked pregnant and i wasn't feeling great about what i had done to my body. well - i was constipated. i drank some milk of magnesium and all i can say is thank you jesus! i am still a bit sore though and just a little swollen.

Today, is 20 days post op. I'm having better thoughts about the smart lipo process. I can finally begin to see some changes in the way my clothes fit around my waist/stomach area. I hate to say that I still swell up by the evening. My lower abdomen looks like I'm pregnant. The first compression garment that I was given doesn't do me any good. It is not flat. It wrinkles and buckles at the zipper. I've tossed it. I'm wearing some high waist underwear that I bought from walmart. I bought a size smaller than I would normally buy. It's doing the job! I will post tomorrow - my three week mark! Good luck to anyone thinking about having this done.

Today is 3 weeks and one day post op. I've lost 5 pounds! I'm beginning to feel much better about my procedure. I see that patience is key. Hang in there everybody!

Today is August 21 2012. I really don't see any new results. I'm sort of thinking I've wasted my money. I can't wait until the three month follow up with my doctor.

Hi Felicia! I've decided to do my smart lipo procedure at Sono Bello Atlanta but I've so torn between requesting Dr. Welsh or Dr. Klein since I've heard great things about both. Any updates or suggestions to your story?!?

Hey Felicia, sorry you're still feeling bloated and in pain. Everyone seems to heal at different speeds, but it hopefully won't be too long before you're feeling better! Please do keep us updated on your progress!

Glad you're feeling better! It's amazing the little things that knock your body out of sync.

August 1, 2012 - Today I feel so bloated and swollen. Yesterday, someone ran up to me and hugged me very tightly. That hurt my stomach soooooo bad. I will start back drinking plenty of water. Hopefully, the swelling will go down again

Today is Day 10 Post op. I can honestly saying I am beginning to see some results. I'm still tender and sore. The consultant said that becuase I had so much cc's removed that I will be tender and sore longer than average. I truly recommend this procedure. As a matter of fact, when I pay off my account for this procedure, I'm going in to have some areas treated.

My doctor was Dr. Welsh. Today is day 9 post op. My results are amazing. I went in thinking that I would see fast immediate results. But, after a week, I'm beginning to see some positive results, and i'm still swollen and tender in a few places. I had my upper and lower abs down. I highly recommend this doctor.
