I had Smartlipo procedure done on my upper and lower abs about two months ago. Before deciding for Smartlipo I did a lot of research on the procedure and providers and I did read every single post on Smartlipo on this website.
I did not want to post before I was absolutely sure on the results. I had lost my waist after having twins and no matter how much I diet or exercised, it just did not seem to get back into shape it was before. I can say that I do love my new tiny waist and my new body! It all turned out awesome.
I did take the advice and researched Smartlipo providers in the area. I consulted with 3 different Smartlipo doctors. I did feel most comfortable to go ahead with the procedure with Dr. Z. He really took the time to listen to my expectations, explained the procedure well and answer to all my questions. He also had an extensive photo album with the photos of the people he had done the procedure on. I got some phone numbers of the persons he had done the procedure with. I feel it was really useful to talk to someone who had already gone thru with this procedure.
I do not remember much of the details of the procedure. I was given sedative by my mouth. I did feel relaxed and comfortable the whole time. I was not anxious nor did I feel any pain. It was more like poking sensation (especially around my ribs) first when melting the fat. It was good though to look all the fat coming out during the suction.
I was pretty sore the following two days. The drainage had stopped by the morning following the surgery. The swelling began to go down after first 5 or 6 days and my body shape continued to improve rapidly during the first two months. I can see huge tightening on my skin.
By now my waist size has decreased from 33” to 27 inches (from size 8 to size 4). My abdomen is flat and smooth. I cannot wait to have my first beach vacation and wear bikini again. I still feel that the improvement continues but I am already very happy the way I look. I am glad I listened to this websites advice and found an expert like Dr. Z.
