I had Smart Lipo done on my chin, upper and lower abdomen and inner thighs on Feb. 23rd. These were areas that were just not going away with diet and exercise.
I looked at the areas that I had done when I got home that afternoon and I could tell that they looked much better, that quickly, that is until the swelling set in! I am 6 days out and still pretty swollen. My draining only lasted for about 12 hours after I came home. I still have some pain in a few spots, but it's really not that bad.
I took the pain medicine all day Monday and one dose on Tuesday. I have not taken anything else for pain. By day 3 I really felt like I was back to my old self. I am not having any problems doing anything now.
Of the areas that I had done, the chin was the most painful for me. I highly recommend Arnica cream or Arnicare gel. I used it 3 times a day and had only very faint bruising. I am very happy with my results thus far and cannot wait to see what the end results will be.
