Had smart lipo July 3 on flanks, abdomine and inner thighs. I was put under general which was fine with me. I actually prefered it and it did not bother me at all. I leaked for 12 hours and wore compression garment for 2 weeks. I am now in a stage two garment. I have a small lump in left thigh, but continue to massage. I went in 5 days post op and was told 3-6 months to see results. I had 900 cc removed which they said was a lot for me? The more I read, the more I realize that it doesn't sound like much was taken out. I can see that my stomach has gone down but my love handles are still big and my inner thighs are still touching. I thought by 3 weeks I would have my clothes fitting looser, but they are not. I will continue to wear this garment 23/7 until my next visit. I am hoping that this was not all for nothing. I would hate to have to go through this again.
