Here we go, I had such a fantastic experience with my Smart Lipo of the Chin & Neck... the results have been amazing. I am very pleased. I have now scheduled to have Smart Lipo of the Upper Arms! My personal goal is to feel good wearing a tank top or short sleeves. What I have learned out of this, is not everyone has the same results and there are always risk factors. The key for me is trusting the doctor and staff who will be providing my care.

Day 10, I noticed that my swelling had started to go down and no more bruising... I made the mistake of not sleeping with my compression garment on... and woke up an increase in upper arm swelling.
Day 13, Follow-up appointment: stitches removed & cleared from wearing compression garment. Minimal swelling noted on the upper arms. Dr. O'Toole spent over 30 minutes with me discussing care and making sure I understood everything necessary. (His bedside manners are awesome! He is well respected amongst his peers.)
I am now at 2 1/2 weeks, back of the upper arms are still sensitive (this is to be expected) to touch and sometimes I have noticed that this discomfort makes it difficult to sleep. I was given a prescription of Percocet for 20 tablets prior to the procedure... I use these only on nights when the discomfort keeps me from falling asleep. If I have any discomfort during the day, Tylenol is able to relieve the discomfort.
I found out about my doctor from realself and reviews. I had such an amazing first experience... I choose to do my upper arms.
