I am a little over a week out from my Smartlipo procedure. So far, not feeling nervous, just excited to (hopefully!) see some dramatic results. I am 36 years old, 5'8", 165 lbs; currently wearing a snug size 10. I am not overly concerned with the actual weight loss associated with this procedure; my main goal is to have a significant reduction in inches and a more "smooth" appearance overall. I have started taking Arnica as well as a daily multivitamin, and drinking plenty of water.
I am planning on only taking 2 days off work (ambitious, I know.). For those of you who have had this many areas done, do you think this is realistic? I work at a corporate office (desk job) so I will not have to be on my feet much.
I will be posting my before photos later today.
Wow, what a day. I had my procedure yesterday at...

I am not posting this to frighten anyone, just wanted to be honest about MY experience. I think the pain meds on an empty stomach, along with the pain are what caused me to get sick. I typically have a tough time with pain meds and should have know this would not be any different.
As for my results, I have no clue! Have not looked at myself in the mirror once....just haven't had the energy. I want to focus on my healing first and foremost.
I will be posting my after pics ASAP, hopefully in 2-3 days!

I am 2 weeks post op, my stomach is flat, bruising and swelling are minimal BUT major divots, lumps and unevenness are starting to emerge on my stomach. See attached photo. I need advice.....is this normal or time to be very concerned? So scared. I've seen revisions make people worse, so I am terrified to go down that road!
4 months post op update. Did I really pay $10k to look like I lost a few pounds?? Not happy.

My inner thighs are a major source of my disappointment; my surgeon admitted they are in need of a touch up. They are totally uneven and "wavy" in appearance. I hate them. Surgeon says we have to wait at least 9 months before they can be corrected....very unfortunate as I now have to endure the entire swimsuit season looking like this.
In addition to being less than satisfied with my appearance, I am noticing from the other reviews on this site that I paid WAY more than most. I spent over $10,000!!!! For what?? I am still not sure.....
Photos to come.
