NOT What I Expected, and NOT What I Paid for - Houston, TX

I went to consultation for smart lipo on my abdominal area and did my research and its funny when you look up Smart Lipo all you see is positive stuff and once something goes wrong all you see is negative. Well here is my story....

I am a fit 30 yr old standing at 5'3 and 115 lbs and wanted a Kelly Rippa stomach and ended up getting a Tara Reid stomach :-( It has only been a little over 2 weeks so maybe I am jumping the gun with the results but my stomach is disgusting to look at so far and I am beyond disappointed.

The pros so far is yes my stomach has a tighter feel, so tight that it actually hurts when I stand up...That is the ONLY pro.

Cons? The list goes on!

First let me tell you about my biggest complaint. That is the fat roll looking ridge thing above my belly button. Its soft on the outside and when you press it its a little painful and more hard. I read and was told from my pics that its "scar tissue" but I obviously have no clue and have to listen to the professionals. I havent gone in to my checkup appt its in Sept but this lumpy roll isnt going away at all and if anything I believe it is getting worse. I was pretty thorough in my questions and asked anything and everything and lumps were NEVER mentioned. Instead he showed me a pic of a girl with a flat, taut UNLUMPY stomach and said my results would be like that. Hmmm...he shouldve showed me a pic of Tara Reid after her botched job. Any feedback from others on this site would be greatly appreciated.

ok so its been over a year since my surgery and i decided i would go ahead and post new pics. overall, i would NOT recommend this surgery to someone that is in their ideal weight range. you can still see some waviness and you cant see in the pics, but the upper abdominal, above the belly button is still uneven.

starting abs this week, ill keep it updated and see if diet and abs will change the appearance or the waviness or not.

109/110 lbs and my stomach is STILL wavy. keep in mind i have a crappy blackberry camera so you cannot really see the uneveness in the pic. my stomach also looks unnatural, when has anyone ever seen a stomach that looks like that? i havent!!!!

I say poor because I was not warned of the possibility of this outcome at all after I had asked over and over and was told how easy this procedure was and apparently bad outcomes are not even heard of in his office. I feel like I was duped. If it gets better then Id change this to an average rating.
