Did you wear a compression suit afterwards? If not, then naturally you will lump up

Basil Pakeman is registered as an ophtamologist isn't he? I've seen a good review of his here by someone but isn't it a huge "no-no" to have cosmetic surgery done by a none cosmetic surgeon?

I live in in NYC and I went to several doctors for Smartlipo consults but I chose Dr Wertheim at Advanced Laser in Long Island. He was the only doctor that spent about 40 min. with me and showed be a lot of before and after photos. I had my procedure done 3 months ago on my abs and thighs and I love it, he's an amazing surgeon, definitely worth the trip from the city.

I've read several people's testimonies on here who have experienced the exact same thing as you; and many of them have come back to report that it does eventually go away. Some people recommended massaging the 'bumps' yourself (may hurt/be a little uncomfortable). Others have said that they go for lymphatic massages--suppose to help the body recover from injury/trauma and supports the immune system as a whole. In NY, that shouldn't be hard to come by. I am also in the NY area--could you please tell me what doctor you used, as I'm interested in finding a good local doctor from Smart Lipo. I hope this helps--best of luck as you continue healing.
