Hello, I got mine done at the same doctor and I am still loving my results. Do you mind posting update pictures? I am thinking about getting the cool sculpting done on my love handles...

This might be the last thing you want to hear, but light walking is the best thing to relieve the pain; I was in a lot of pain too (similar to the pain I felt after I had a C-section years ago); On the 2nd day I started running light errands and by the end of the week I mostly felt pain when trying to go to sleep (I could not find a comfortable position for about 2 weeks); All of that to say that it does get better so hang in there.

I just had it done a week ago. OMG, if I would have known the pain this causes I would have never done it. Can anyone provide some advice other than advil, water. etc/ I am wearing my garment. Any tricks to helping this heal faster. YIKES!!!!

I posted on here a couple of weeks ago..and what I said earlier about some peoples body just swelling a lot is a bunch of bull. I had lipo again on the 4th and barely swelled..have faith and I'm hoping yours will come out the way you like it and not have to have it done again to be satisfied.

I am freaking out.Your story is so familiar to mine (I had smartlip mpx 8 days ago and my stomach looks worse due to "swelling"). You had the surgery in March..please tell me you see results by now!!!

the swwelling goes down. i noticed alot of difference. just after three months you start to get impatient. but loosing a couple pounds helps also. i will post updated pics soon.

Sorry it took so long to get back to you (I've been enjoying the results of my surgery a little too much-lol); It really does take about 2-3 months to see results; I will be updating my profile to show the results currently; With that being said I still have to do a revision in October (I have an area in my lower abs that is the size of a deck of cards that I feel my doctor neglected all together); Would I do the surgery again? Absolutely, but with realistic expectations...

Thanks for posting your story and pics your review is very encouraging. My stomach looks similar to how yours did and i had been thinking about smartlipo...so I had my consultation 4/6 and i plan to have my upper and lower abs done 5/5 and Im hoping and praying for great results! Are you still happy about your decision and results?

OMG Jennty, you look amazing. I think it's only going to get better from here on for you. I am truly considering having this surgery done as I too cannot get rid of this old stubborn fat. I actually live down in Montgomery so I may actually try to get a consult with your doctor. Thanks for showing us all of your updates and sharing your thoughts. I think you helped me make up my mind to go for it.

Hi no I'm not worried at all. The swelling is going down good and its very noticable for two weeks. Sorry to hear about yours.

Well I am not trying to scare you but my Dr told me that some peoples bodies just swell a whole lot. I had smartlipo done Oct 27 2010, had my upper/lower ab, flanks and what I call bra fat done. Six months later no results. I swelled up so bad after surgery, and actually haven't even gotten back down to pre-op size. My Dr offered to do a re-touch but im scared I will just get bigger. So I hope you have good results with your surgery. Im getting a refund for mine.

I has lipo of abs and flanks done April 28. I wasn't given water pills either, it is my understanding that it is dangerous to take them after this surgery. I was up 8lbs after from swelling and it was back down after day 3 post op. I still have some swelling and doctor said it will get worse before it gets better. I could see a big improvement at my doctors visit 3 days later. See my post and pics. Best of luck to you, hope all goes well! If you post a question for one of the docs on this site they will answer if for you.

I was given maxide it's a Blood Pressure plus HCTZ which is a diuretic I don't really think it works too well so I use a lasix 40mg every other day when I feel like i'm bloating. Hope this helps
