Smartlipo Results - Dearborn, MI

I had my procedure done on 5/24/13 on my abs and love handles. I worked out everyday before smart Lipo but was having trouble eliminating my stomach fat. I was told that u would be able to return back to work 3 days after. I Could not leave the couch for over a week because it hurt so bad to move. My bruising has started to dissolve but now I have a small lump below my bellybutton that hurts when I touch it. I was suppose to have a checkup but the doctor hardly ever makes time to see me. I had no instructions for care afterwards.....my results get better day by day but now I'm afraid that this lump will be there forever!!! Any suggestions? I've used a heating pad a few times.

This morning

Woke up feeling much better, still a little sore in some spots but overall the bruising is going away! My stomach and love handles look so different! I love it so far! :)

4 weeks out

Slowing healing. Beginning to bruise in some spots other than that I'm good. :) July 16 is my first vellasmooth treatment very excited!

Week 5

My soreness is almost gone! Exercising has helped me a lot! I'm still wearing my garment to enhance my results. Not used to seeing my stomach this flat! Can't wait to see more, my first vella smooth treatment is on July 16th :)

Did your lump go away? I had mine done two weeks ago and my lower ab is still numb and sore with a huge lump across the lower ab. It doesn't look like it's improving. It looks like a hard muffin top and it's freaking me out. Any feedback from you will be greatly appreciated .

It took almost 6 months for my lump to go away now its smooth. Make sure you get vella smooth done or that lump will never go away! I got 9 treatments. I also did not fully heal for about 6 months

Thank you so much for the tip. I have to look into vella. My doctor did not offer nor provide this service.

I was sore and down for almost two months! Just make sure you have nothing serious planned or a job that requires you to lift. Its worth it, but I was afraid at first!!! :)

I'm curious..I did only my abs not my love handles. They were bothering me too but the doc said its a whole different area and would cost me an additional few thousand dollars. Was that area painful after the procedure? Did you see a major improvement on that area? Is it as painful as the stomach area?

My sides were not as painful. I do have a little bruising on my side though. Yes I have noticed that I'm getting a smoother look.

I have reaction treatments which is similar to vella. I had 3 done. The first was the most painful since it was 6 weeks post op. Was still very sore. But I never got bruising from it. Maybe she used a very strong setting. I think they can control it. But I'm usually more sore and swollen for a couple of days after the treatment. Then it gets better and smoother than before. She told me that usually after the fourth treatment you see a drastic improvement. I hope it's true. I'm going for the fourth next week. It usually hurts the most in the beginning of the treatment and then after a few minutes I get used to the sensation. It does feel like pinching though.I'm wondering, is your skin tight or there are some looser areas?

My skin is overall tight. I think that is why it was hurting so bad. It was on the lowest setting

Are these treatments at additional cost to you guys? My doctor hasn't suggested these treatments.
  • Reply
My doctor includes six treatments with the procedure without additional cost.

I got 9 for free. He didn't give me more than that because he's giving me a discount on my implants

I have my 6 week follow up tomorrow, I think I'm going to ask about it.
