I Should've Done Smart Lipo Sooner!

Day 10, I'm operating at 90%: Bruising is almost...

Day 10, I'm operating at 90%: Bruising is almost completely gone. I'm still a bit "lumpy" but since my belly is no longer hanging over my jeans, I'm good to go!!! I'm having a love/hate relationship with my "garment" / "corset" ~ when I wear it, I get funky indentations on my belly...like molding silly putty. If I don't wear it, I feel a little puffy. Overall, I'm thrilled that I had it done because my clothes fit so much better & I no longer have to adjust my jeans over my belly fat everytime I sit down!!!

Day 3, feeling great! No longer draining, still a bit lumpy, but my bruising has gotten much better today & I'm moving about very effortlessly! I'm going for Laser Genesis today & will have the good Dr. check my progress! So far, so good! I'm thankful for this website because I was able to go into the procedure sort of knowing what to expect from other people's experiences! I think I had it made because my Dr. is a Licenced & Practicing Anesthesiologist, so there was absolutely no pain during the procedure...the most painful part of my day was getting marked for surgery while standing in front of a mirror while wearing paper underwear:-) LOL!

Somehow, my first post got deleted when I did this update, so I will tell you that I've been reading this website for weeks before my prodedure. I decided to post my photos because I wished more people had shared theirs before I had my prodedure done!

I am 43y/o, 5'3" tall & about 130lbs. I've had 2 children by C-section & NOTHING could compare to that level of pain (of course, they were worth it!)

I had my last baby when I was 40 & I found that my muffin top just wouldn't go back to "normal" ~ so, although I considered a tummy tuck, I decided that because I don't have stretch marks, it was too invasive for the result I was seeking. I am very glad I made the decision to go with Smart Lipo!

Naturally, the first thing I will tell you is to choose your Dr. wisely! This is not a procedure to be done by just anybody & don't make your decision based on price! Sometimes the best isn't the most expensive & visa-versa!



The pictures I have posted are from a few hours before Smart Lipo, day 2 when I took off my corset to change the dressings & day 10. I already see a big difference & I know it will improve over time! (I've read it can take up to 2-3 months before you see the final results) NO MORE MUFFIN TOP!

It's been a month & I'm really starting to see the results!! I'm not wearing the garment at all & the lumpiness is starting to subside. I didn't have all the severe swelling that I've read about & had to laugh when someone wrote that Smart Lipo made them gain 20 lbs ~ it still makes me giggle just writing it! C'mon now, this is the perfect procedure for people who have stubborn areas that don't respond to diet &/or exercise. This is NOT a diet or a reason to go out & celebrate every night at your favorite fast food restaurant! I have only lost about 4lbs but it looks like 10. I can wear a fitted tshirt with jeans without looking like I'm trying to hide a flotation device around my mid section! I'm still wearing a size 27 jean, but they just look a lot better! To say I'm still thrilled with the procedure would be an understatement!!

Sam Hassan, M.D.

The Dr. I chose is a licenced & practicing Anesthesiologist who owns an aesthetic salon. Nobody could be better or safer with a needle! (He does my Botox & Radiesse, too! I'm currently seeing his Salon Manager for Laser Genesis & love it!)
