I am 18 and have struggled with tummy weight my entire life. I finally decided to get SmartLipo done.

It has almost been a month since the procedure. BEWARE, they DO sugar coat things. I didnt work for 2 weeks afterwards. Recovery was NOT easy. It is critical that you have someone with you at home for ATLEAST 3 days after surgery. Also, if you get your tummy done, WEAR GIRDLE control top panties. It makes a difference but i did not know this until the second week.

So, bottom line, I do think it is worth it. I have gained a lot of confidence, but dont expect perfection and fast recovery. They removed 4 containers of fat. About 3 pounds. I cant wait to get my 2 velashapes! :]

hello,

you mentioned control top panties, did your doctor not have you wear a compression garment?

I bet the velashape did not make a difference did it?
