Had Smart Lipo on 7/12/11 - San Ramon, CA

Had upper & lower abs and flanks done 2 days...

Had upper & lower abs and flanks done 2 days ago. Te entire surgery took 6 hours because I had some very tough "gristly" fat in my upper abdomen. I thought the surgery itself was mildly painful but bearable. The worst part was lying still on my back for so long. That night I felt very sick and threw up.

Dr. Riopelle and his staff were amazing. Everyone was patient and understanding. That made all the difference.

I was miserable and could barely get out of bed. Today is a tiny bit better but still difficult to walk or get dressed.

So far my stomach looks flat but I'm very swollen. My first follow up is tomorrow.

I had vaser assisted lipo done a week ago upper lower abdomen and back.Tthe discomfort so far is bearable ,had post op done after 5 days, they removed accumulated fluid from the back.My doctor said this might need to be repeated a few more times.
swelling has not fully subsided yet.
