I have two amazing little boys and am about 30 pounds over weight. I would like my pre-baby figure. I am scheduled to have Smart Lipo on my arms, back, legs and knees on June 29th.

I will post before and after pictures.

I wanted to add - when Dr. Pelosi conducted my full body screening, his bedside manner was superb. He was very nice and made me feel at ease. He made full eye contact with me when we spoke. He gave me a quick overview of the risk and expectations of Smart Lipo and assured me that if I had any follow up questions I was welcomed to call him. The receptionist/medical assistants (Donna and Barbara) were also cordial and professional.


You have a very small waist!! I think it will look great..keep us posted w/pics!

Hi All, The doctor wanted to work on my legs...

Hi All,

The doctor wanted to work on my legs first. I must say I am very happy with my Doc and my legs. I kept saying bye bye fat legs and the doctor kept saying hello skinny legs while I was on the operating table. LOL

It is day 3 and I am able to walk like a normal person. I hated the drugs I was prescribed but if you have to take them, then take them. I can now bend my legs. If feels like I was in a street fight LOL.

I really like my doctor and I trust him. I asked him what did he like performing the most and he said breast implants and lipo.

I am due to have my arms, bra roll, lower back done this Tuesday.

I will keep you posted!

P.S. my compression garment is great! It's Marena. My friend complained about her garment so I was worried. Plus I hate wearing pantyhose but to wear this and love it is amazing!!


Looking good!!!! Thx for sharing your story!!

Thanks Workingonme!

I actually had a tummy tuck back in 2005. Dr. Glickman did my tummy tuck and I would have gone back to him however, he is very far from where I live and I could believe my friend's results. So I went with Dr. Pelosi.

Okay, sorry for the delayed update. I have to...

Okay, sorry for the delayed update. I have to upload pictures. I really, truly love my arms and legs. Everyone is saying my waist is smaller but I don't see it yet.

My arms really hurt and you need to slowly, gently massage it for weeks on end. I am 4 weeks into my arms and back and 5 weeks into my legs. I still have black and blue marks in my inter thighs and lower back.

My arms are fine but hard underneath. I will email all details regarding recovery when I post pictures. I have a lot of information to share! Like please take 2 to 4 weeks off if you are doing everything and rest, rest, rest.


Hi deni71,

Thanks so much!

I noticed a difference in my inner and outer thighs plus knees after about a week after surgery.

I still have black and blues and my back is still swollen after 6 weeks (I stop wearing my body suit last week).

I don't know how these other people work out after surgery but I will start on Sept. 1st and not any sooner.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Wish you well and good luck!!
  • Reply look great and thank you for sharing your experience. I have a body shape very similar to yours and I had my surgery last Tues., 8/9. I was wondering how long it took you to notice a difference in your legs. I know results happen over time, and I am less than a week out but I am just curious. Thanks!

Thank you NayBella!
Dr. Pelosi

I would like my pre-baby figure so I went to see Dr. P (the son). He is a really nice, humble and genuine person.
