I am 50 years old and I was always relatively thin--5'6'' and a size 6-8 and I gained weight to a size 8-10 but only in my waist-tummy thigh area. It wouldn't go away. I don't have children so that wasn't an excuse. I went to see the doctor and he said I'm a perfect candidate for Smart Lipo of the abdomen and love handles. The procedure took about 1 hr and I had no ativan, etc., just local anesthesia. NO BIG DEAL. I never had a pain pill except Tylenol just because I thout it would hurt after I got home. Surgery was on Friday, July 25, and on Saturday-26th, I went to Orlando Airport to get my parents who came from Dallas to Florida. It's about 50 miles to airport and I was FINE. Tis nice doctor workd my mom in for Smart-Lipo on Tuesday (7-29) and she did fine as well. She had DOT laser as well--that hurt. I'm going back on 8-29 to have my thighs done.
I can't say enough about this procedure. I'm a Flight Attendant and I work around so many pretty girls and this really helps my self esteem--it's bothered me for a long time.
