PMO3 - Manhattan, NY / Smart Lipo

To All Ladies & Mommies!!! I am a Proud...

To All Ladies & Mommies!!!

I am a Proud Mother Of 3 Handsome Boys!!! My oldest is 15 y/o, middle 10y/o and baby 6y/o. I had my first son at the age of 15 years old .. Yes Shocking !!! But I don't regret that decision it has been a motivating and awesome experience. Especially now that I am a young beautiful Mom!!! Lol!! Nevertheless in all pregnancies your breast begin to sag and your stomach muscles become loosened and of course weight gain is always a factor. I must say thou I have been blessed to have great skin texture that after all of my pregnancies stretch marks was not an issue. After my last son I have made work out my regimen and also became a vegan :-) that has truly worked wonders in losing all of my baby weight. I was always naturally thin but in each pregnancy a little pounds were always added!!! I am currently 117lbs and feeling great about it due to my hard work at the gym and home on a daily basis and of course healthy eating!!! But I am currently seeking to firm everything into place and would like sort of a " mommy makeover"!!! I am a graduate student finishing school hopefully this May '13, and would like to give myself this as a gift!!! I have scheduled a consultation for Harlem hospital in Manhattan for January 23rd and I am feeling very excited!!! I am hoping to have my surgery done by the end of next month!!! But on another note my husband has been against my surgery for years now and feels that I currently look great and that I don't really need to change anything about myself ... although I must say that this is what motivated me to work I out first before considering surgery!!! For some support I would like to know if anyone else is going through the same situation with hubby??? And if anyone has ever had surgery done or going to at Harlem Hospital ??? Or if you have any other hospitals that you may want to recommend in NY!! I would appreciate some comments!!! Thanks :-)

Hello Ladies & Mom's

Finally!!! I will be doing my first cosmetic procedure of Smart Lipo next month!!! After years of hard core working out and losing 45 pounds I am very excited to be a perfect candidate for this procedure!!! I currently weigh 116 lbs and although my husband is still against it..I am all for it and I am hoping that after the surgery that he will recognize the beauty of it!! Wish me luck every one...My surgery date April 3rd with Dr. Marciano in Great Neck NY, if anyone has done it with this doc I would like to see the results. Thanks :)

I am very excited!!! But nervous about my Smart Lipo Triplex procedure for April 3rd. After reading some of the stories they haven't been really good results ... But due to size in weight of 116lbs, daily healthy eating and exercise I am hoping to gain great results!!! Keeping my fingers crossed!!! I would like more feedback on this procedure of anyone would like to share.. Thanks:)

Counting down my procedure date April 3rd, type nervous due to all the concern comments about swelling!!!

I finally got my smart lipo triplex done yesterday...

I finally got my smart lipo triplex done yesterday with Dr. Marciano yesterday :-)! So far I am feeling great, alittle pain but nothing unbearable!!! My experience so far was great in her office and the way that she and her staff treated me was wonderful!!! I have posted post-op pics and will continue to post more through out the week I am crossing my fingers and hope that it looks good after all the swelling goes away. Wish me luck!!

Feeling still very good so far!! Taking the pain...

Feeling still very good so far!! Taking the pain meds but mostly likely I may no need them tonight. I just finish taking a bath after wearing my garment for 24hrs!!!! I have posted pics so far looking good :-D

Today marks a full week of my Smart Lipo procedure...

Today marks a full week of my Smart Lipo procedure :)) Feeling more better everyday... I must say thou that anyone doing the Smart Lipo procedure you have to have lots of patience with swelling and pain. I thought of a quick recovery going into this and with only 100cc taken out ...but on the contrary the swelling is reducing slowly.. Each day I see less and less swelling. I would like to give a tip if you want great results please don't rush to excersise and overdue your self and body especially ... You can do all of those things once you are cleared by your doctor and fully have recovered. In overdoing your self it can take a longer process on your recovery. As a work out freak I truly understand wanting to get back into the regimen ...but I have to be realistic that I still am far from recovering and that it will just hinder the process.. Also eat healthy ...it will help with maintaining your weight or losing weight since working out is not an option right now!!! I will continue to update y' all !! Good luck :))

Tomorrow Makes 3wks.. Swelling definitely under...

Jan007 u look great Hun, resting is key. I didnt even start working out yet till Dr.M gives me OK and even then i will be easy. I Have been promoting Suzzane (Post Lipo Massages) cause it has helped my swelling a lot. But if u dont go, get massge oil and rub urself down (where u got ur lipo) 4 like 20-30 mins. Than wear ur grament all night. That's what I've been doing since shes on vacation. Take care ur pics r very helpful to others aswel. :))

@ November :)) We are still awaiting the full results... I must say looking good so far but I with this type of procedure lots of patience lol lots .. Due to swelling and pain. Well hubby fought me all the way until the day of the procedure but after it was all over he had no other choice now he doesn't even discuss it... He is more concerned about my health and making sure that I get better soon !!! It is all about control but sometimes as women's we have took over :))

Did you do it?
  • Reply
Yes I did yesterday :) I posted post-op pics!! It went well and so far I don't have too much pain I M able to move around and do things ... Although the Doc.. Request that I stay off my feet ugh! Lol

Hey do you also get three free Velashape visit with her after your procedure ?
  • Reply
No, I didnt get the free VelaShape. Probably because I only had the lower abdomen done and I paid $1,700. You look great. I hope you achieve the results that you desired. Whatever you do, dont work-out!!! Learn from my mistakes. Look at my pictures. My stomach blew up (belly button closed) after doing 45 minutes of cardio (walking). I called in and the girls told me after a week it was fine to do a "gentle walk" but I dont think they took into consideration that I am a gym goer. Anyway, I am still swollen with internal bruising/ swelling. DubbyDee sent me to Suzane and I just had my first massage. It was great! Take it easy. I hope the best for you!

Hello Jan007 welcome. We have similar situations, I am 35 years old with 3 children. I had my first one at 16. I always had weight issues, I would go up and down. When I told my husband that I wanted to do this he hit me with, I don't need it to go to the gym. Going to the gym wasn't working for me because of thyroids. I started taking thyroid medication and slowly began to lose some weight. I told my husband again that I want to do this and when I'm going to do it. He argued with me until the day of. I am now 4 days PO and I wouldn't change my decision at all. I'm from NY also, NY ear and eye hospital is another good choice, and Lenox teaching hospital. I came to the DR and I am glad that I did. You will need a lot of help during the first 2-3 weeks. I'm here for 2 weeks. If you have any questions just hit me because I'm dealing with it now, it is very fresh.

Wow!!! That is awesome.!!! I am so into doing it this, last year I thought of DR I had plane tickets and all... My mother was coming with me... Because of all of arguments and him saying that I was going to die .. lol over there I changed my mind and just took a mini vacation at Boca Chicago Beach with my mom :)) because I already had payed for the tickets... :/ Now this year I decided to do it in NY because I work and have school so DR will definitely not work for me, but now he is probably happy because my school had just advise me that I would have to pay 5500 before May for graduation !!! Which that is most of the money I had towards my sugery :((( trying to way out my financial options lol any advise :)) thanks

I would recommend looking into financing the surgery. I heard some of the teaching hospitals finances. I don't know how true it is, but you can look into it. Good luck on your decision. I know finishing school is exciting and important (I got my Masters last year). So if you have to finance the surgery or push it back. By all means do it.

How did the consults go???

Hi!!! It's went very well, but I just got a wrench thrown to my financial plans :( ... I just found out a few days ago that in order for me graduate this May I would have to pay 5500 of tuition :/... That was actually most of the money that I had for my sugery :// So I am trying to see what other financial alternatives I have. Because I really would like to get it done :))
