Had Smart-lipo yesterday- all went well. I had 5 areas: inner and outer thighs, lower and upper belly, love handles. Last night I felt like I had been stabbed 100 times...Excrutiating pain- I have been taking the meds every 4 hours....Thank God I have a week off! Lunch lipo??? I don't think so.

Day 3: still sore although not as bad but I am running a fever... and have a real migraine. Slept a lot today and kept on taking the meds... I cannot wait for the pain to subside.

Not sure it was worth it yet... I have to be patient!

Day 5 and 6: I was able to go out yesterday and be just about normal with some slight pain. I am still bruised on my inner thighs but it is bearable.

Still improving but the garment is horrible: As...

Still improving but the garment is horrible: As soon as I eat I feel like I am really to blow up!

Hi there, welcome and thanks so much for sharing your experience with us, I'm glad you're starting to feel a little better now. I know with this type of procedure results can take a few months to show, but hopefully once you're swelling goes down it will all have been worth it. Please do keep us updated on your progress.
