Hi everyone. I went to have my before pics done last wednesday and it all seems too real. My doctor seems awsome and said not to worry that he does a great job and i wont regret it. I told him this is a one shot deal for me. He is expected to take out 3500 cc or more. I am 5'3 180 pounds. I am right on the border of not doing it for the bmi is too high.
So I got my pre procedure medication and I believe I wont have trouble during the procedure. he did say the only thing I may feel is the first cut where they inject the numbing medication under the skin but he will also give me extra meds when i get ot the office so that I will be pretty happy.

HELLO EVERYONE. TODAY I WENT FOR MY 3 MONTH EXAM. I LOST 6 POUNDS AND 8 INCHES SO I GUESS I HAVE CHANGED. BUT I AM LEFT WITH TO ME ALOT OF EXCESS SKIN. BUT THEY TELL ME THE SKIN IS STILL CONTOURING AND MAY SHRINK MORE. BUT THEY ENCOURAGED ME TO DIET AND EXCERCISE AND SEE WHAT HAPPENS IN 3 MONTHS.

hello well it is gonna be one year since my smart lipo. im pretty ok with my end results and excercising is showing results. the only thing is i realize i was large in the waist so i have skin that didnt all shrink in the healing process. wondering if with weight loss will some of this skin leave?

Smart lipo was a fail two years ago. So this is the year for the flat side
Christmas Eve update
Got drains out finally told me to be lazy got couple of days to prevent a seroma. Cg finally put on. Already tired of it pain control is very good. It will be three weeks Thursday. Only complaint is a do get muscle spasms. Especially morning if I try to stretch a little in the recliner. Still can't sleep on sides. Took my first shower yesterday. Ahhhh heaven!!!! So ladies it does get better. My ps said to try walking as straight up as possible that stitches would be ok as long as you don't really stretch too hard
Anyone know how to get rid of a post? I have smart lipo 2011 combined with TT 2013. Very confusing
