I had Smartlipo of my abdomen, flanks, bra-roll and lower back on May 2nd, 2013. I was so worried about the procedure that my blood pressure jumped a little the morning of my procedure. Nurse Lee was so awesome. She got me prepped and my blood pressure was back to normal and ready for my procedure. I was given medication (no anesthesia) and that was the last thing that I remembered. I woke up with my liposuction fully completed. Overall my experience was great partly because Dr. Boutte is such a caring person with great human chemistry--she really knows how to make her patients comfortable. It's now day 2 and I am already down 5 inches in my waist...even though I am still swollen. My advice to anyone considering SmartLipo is...find a doctor whom you are comfortable with because it really enhances your experience.
By the way, I did not find the compression garments uncomfortable at all. I was a bit concerned about the amount of leakage but Nurse Lee re-assured me that this was okay…and she was right.
5 Stars to Dr. Boutte and her crew!

11 Days post-of and still swelling even though I have been very cautious about what I eat and drink (lots of water). I guess this is the down-side of Smart Lipo. I am really hoping that the swelling will subside in a couple of weeks, but right now it feels like a very heavy basketball has been placed in my lower abdomen.
