I had smart lipo 6 days ago on Feb.25th. Like many people have said on here, the it's not painful, but there were moments it was for me. The rib cage area was rough and when they put all the fluid in me, I did tear up a little and there was a lot of pressure. (I couldn't talk or breathe for a moment.) Overall it was just uncomfortable. I had my upper stomach/ rib area and the belly button area done.
I work out 5 days a week, and after 3 big babies, I needed help with that stubborn area!! I also have a very large rib cage which made it difficult to find clothes that fit right. My ribs have already shown good results ( I can tihgten a knotch on my bra :)) But I am still swollen and my clothes are tight. I can finally (barely) fit in my clothes today. I have been massaging the area that past couple nights and It seems to help.
PATIENCE is a must. I want to see results now! I am going on vacation in a week and I hope the swelling is down by then.I guess time will tell if I have good results!
