Slimlipo for Inner and Outer Thighs

I had slimlipo yesterday 12/31 and it was painful!! I had my outer thighs/hips and inner thighs done. My doctor removed more than a quart of fat. I was not overweight just had stubborn fat that would not respond to exercise. No pain no gain. I'm excited to see the results when the brusing and swelling go away. I'm taking Percocet but will switch to Tylenol soon. I thought the price was high but my doctor is the only Surgeon in Ohio to have the machine.

I had stubborn fat/saddle bags that would not respond to exercise. I'm 5'7" and weigh 145lbs and work out 3 days per week but could not tone my outer/inner thighs.

I'm one day post op and am swollen, sore, bruised and in pain. This procedure is NOT pain free. I have a high tolerance to pain and have had plastic surgery done before, breast implants and upper eye lift. The Slimlipo procedures was very painful and intense at times. The procedure lasted about 2 hours under local anethesia. I also took Valuim and Percocet prior to the procedure.

I have to wear my compression garmet for up to 8 weeks for optimal results. I have an office job so wearing the garment to work will be no problem. I am going back in a couple weeks to have my stomach and flanks done and can't wait for summer weather to show off my new figure! My doctor and his Nurse Sue were wonderful! I highly recommend. I will post photos soon.

Be sure to go with a Board Certified Surgeon who has years of experience with traditional liposuction. I have the highest faith in Dr. George Picha.

I highly recommend my Dr. in Northeast Ohio to perform this procedure. Since losing weight my stomach pouch has reduced also, so I may not have to return to have my stomach done, I will continue to exercise and eat healthy to reduce my stomach pouch. If not, I won't hesitate to see Dr. P for another SlimLipo procedure.

Hi Tina, I am interested in getting smart lipo or slim lipo. Could you tell me why you choose the slim lipo instead of the smart lipo? Thank you so much!

Hello, I picked Slimlipo because it has a laser for tightening the skin. I had cellulite on the backs of my thighs for years no matter what weight I was at and after 2 weeks since my Slimlipo there is zero cellulite, I'm so happy with this procedure. I have lost 7 pounds and I do watch what I eat, staying with healthy choices. I can really see a difference now because I did have a lot of swelling at first but wear my compression garment faithfully day and night for the past 2 weeks.

I'm now 5 days post SlimLipo and feel good just sore and use Tylenol at night only. The bruising and swelling is still very evident, however I wear my compression garment faithfully all day and night. It feels better when I have it on anyway. I have my follow up appointment with my surgeon on Thursday 1/7. Based on how my lower body responds to this procedure, I plan to return for my stomach and flank area.
