Smart Lipo " 2 Thumbs Up" But A Little Painful - New York City

It has been 7 days since I had smartlipo performed...

It has been 7 days since I had smartlipo performed on my lateral thighs, waist, back and buttocks and I must say that having the procedure done was one of the best things I could have done for myself and my body. I have been dieting and exercising for the last 18 months and have taken off approximately 40 lbs. As happy as I was to see the pounds come off, I struggled with my new body as it remained undefined and sloppy. I heard about smartlipo and decided to hit the web in search of any information I could find and after 3 - 4 months of research decided to move forward with it.

I must say that I am extremely happy. My docotor gave curves and helped contur my body in ways that my dieting and exercising could not. Although I am still a little swollen what i see so far, I am very very very happy with. I know everyhing will continue to get better from here !

The only thing that could have been different for me was the pain. Many say that the procedure is virtually pain free, I beg to differ. Getting in and out of bed the first few days was rough for me. I was extremely sore and felt uncomfortable the majority of the time and for the record, I could not return to work 2-3 days after. My body just wasnt ready.

oh i know what you mean!!!!! I am so nervous that i will have hanging skin too but for now i will settle for looking good and feeling comfortable in my clothes. I have been doing sooooo much research and I am hoping that if I wear my compression garment long enough that the skin will reattach instead of flapping over. I would love to have a mini tuck too. But we will see how this goes first.

Hello :-) I will post some pics soon. I honestly didnt take many photos prior to the surgery so I am hoping that the doc will give me a copy of my before pics when I see him this Thursday. I have the muffin top as well and hoping to go back for round 2 with the doctor at the beginning of the year. My doctor said that for optimal results, I would have to get a mini tummy tuck as the skin at the bottom part of the belly wasnt as firm as the top and he was concerned about possible saggy skin which I dont want. I am not planning on having any more children so I am going for it. Good Luck in November :-) !
