42 Year Old Male Lower Ab Smartlipo

I had smart lipo done on my lower abs on 8/22/10. Pain was uncomfortable to none. Dr. did give me ativan prior to procedure. Pain started at home a few hours later, in hind sight I should have taken pain meds when I first started to feel pain, but I waited. Very little to no pain next day. It's monday 8/26/10 I'm back at work and have not talen any pain meds in two days. Before surgery, I could pinch an inch of fat just around my lower abs. This morning, even still swollen I can't pinch anything! I can't believe it! amasing so far! I was exercising 6 days aweek, heavy weights in Am and cardio at night, 600 crunches and I couldn't get rid of the roll of fat. I can't wait till all the swelling is gone.

Just posted my pre and post pics. Sorry they are from my cell. The post was taken the day after the procedure.

It's been 11 days since my procedure. incisions have gotten smaller and smaller to the point that when they are fully healed, they will probabley be undetectable. I have to say that I can't believe I waited to get this done! I still am excited to see that the total impact will be after 1 month. I should have a good indication at that point according to my Doctor. The pics I have here where taken only 1 day post so I will put new ones up when the month is over. Good luck to all of you in the same boat. Have to say the compression garmet is not fun when it's a 110 degrees in Arizona but it's bareable.

It's 2 weeks post procedure today and I have to say I'm happy again. The swelling is down and I have been in my routine of weight lift in AM and cardio (3 miles treadmill) in PM and my 600 crunches. Last night when I got home and took off my compression garmet I was shocked at home thin I looked from the side view....I haven't felt or looked like that since my twenties. I think the cardio at night is somehow helping with the swelling.

8/18/10 I went in for my 1 month follow up with the Dr. It went well dr. thought healing process was going as planned although I "still have some swelling". I have to say that my stomache looks better and better each week. I had a few rough moments intially after the first few days when the swelling began but overall I'm very pleased with the results after only 1 month. I can't wait till 6 months if it already looks this good now. Why did I wait so long to do this?

It's been one year post op. The finally results have made me happy I did it. I will post one last pic of my current outcome. I have to say though...the recovery time is much longer then expected...with lots of ups and downs...just remember..you don't look great overnight..and I have had many episodes of swelling going up and down. I no longer where spanks and the swelling is gone.

Ok 3 years later!

I am very pleased after 3 years with the results. My stomache has been this flat since I was 18!. Lipo suction however is not the end all cure for fat deposits. No matter what the ad may say. You still have to exercise and eat right if you want a 6 pack.

I did my homework...no complaints against her with board. She is a surgeon. But most importantly, she is caring and has the best bedside manner!
