so Far so good. i got a combination of Smart and Traditional lipo 2 days ago.


i actually went in a few weeks ago 4 a smart lipo consultation and ended up signning up for a miix of smart and traditional on my abdomen and midback. i am 5'2 155lbs age 29. with a hr glass figure. lately my fat has been goin to my stomach making me look extra fat seeing as i already have wide hips.


Anyways, the dr is a certified plastic surgeon and i was most confident with his skill then the other drs i visited.
the day of i was super nervous. the anistisiologist insereted my iV and said tell me when u begin to feel different. next thing i know i was waking up with a nurse saying i did great 2 hrs later lol. i went home in a robe and wrapped tight in the tight garment they put on me. the ride home was kinda uncomfortable, mixed with the dreammy feeling of Omg i really did it. nno turninng bk now. i got home took some pain meds and got n bed. i couldnt realy sleep because i was istructed not to lay all the way down. so i was proped up on 3 pillows with my husband talking 2 me and not letting me sleep 4 more than 2 hrs at a time. i took pain meds every 4 hrs because i was scard 2 even witness wat it would feel like without. it only kinda hurt when i was trying to get comfy or gettig up out of bed or sitting down. later that nite i fixed my own sandwhich and did a little house work, nothing that required bending. 2 bad i had to pee every hr feels like. finally i took a sleeping pill & slept like a baby 4 the nite.


day2- woke up swole & bruised. so bruised i thought i saw blood. usually a size 10 i think i swole 2 a size 14. the swelling hurts when u touch it like a super workout at the gym. i was moving slow but still getting around. id say i looked and felt like 7-8 mnths pregnant. took a sleeing pill and slept threw the nite fine.


day 3- woke up wayyyy smaller. swelling going down. still swole but feeling better. chilling in bed right now but its easier to move around and get comfy. im even leaning to 1 side. ill upload photos later.

Day 7: ok so I've had mixed feelings. I'm still...

Day 7: ok so I've had mixed feelings. I'm still sore and swollen but I'm not seeing enough results just yet to say its worth it. I have a high threshold 4 pain yet I'm still sore. My stomach & sides r super hard & lumpy. 2 days ago I got my 1st lymphatic massage which kinda hurt but made me feel so much better. Relieved alot of pressure and soreness. If even worked out sum of the lumps and made it less painful for me to bend over. Too bad I woke up the nxt day sore and back lumpy and in slight pain. Not a real pain but a bruise type pain. Only if I touch certain spots or move a certain way.
I'm lookin foward to my massage tomorrow. Hopefully it'll help. Tryin 2 b patient but this is a slow process. Oh yea still bruised. And my garments isn't tight enough on my stomach but too tight on my rib cage :(

Hi there, welcome and thanks so much for sharing your experience with us!

I think at 7 days out the soreness and swelling is fairly common, but I can understand it being worrying and probably a little annoying! Hopefully your results will start to come through and it will all have been worth it.

Please do keep us updated with your progress!
