I had mine done on October 2009 and when I woke up from my surgery the first thing I said was.... I'm skinny! They took 9 inches off of my hips and shaped my abs. Wow! Well worth it. I kept it off for 2 years and last week I had inner thighs done with the smart lipo triplex. 3,000 for the inner thigh but I'm still swollen down to my foot.
I would say find the best doctor in town. Price shouldn't determine your choice of surgeon. You get what you paid for. I keep going back to my one and only surgeon. I want to have my double chin worked on next.
