I had smartlipo yesterday and so far so good!
During the surgery they did have to give me quite a bit of local. The laser was barely even noticable, didn't feel a thing. Once they did the suction there was a bit more pain, but even I a very pain shy person was able to deal.
After the surgery I was wonderful, went for lunch with my family, rode home an hours with no discomfort. I finally felt some pain just before bed. Took more meds changed my bandages (thank goodness for my wonderful daughter) and went to sleep. Sleep wa a bit uncomfortable, but managable.
Today I took the kids to school, dogs to groomers and then came home and took my first pain pill and felt fine. I do want to wash my garment due to the drainage from last night but I will wait a day or two. Very little swelling or bruising yet but I have been taking arnica and bromelain also.
This was very worth it!

Update: June 10, 2009
Went back yesterday for another surgery to touch up around the fiberous fat around my belly button and do my flanks. This time they used SlimLipo and I already see a huge definition in my figure. I think there was the same amount of pain for both but results seem to be faster this time. Swelling has gone down and drainage has stopped and no bruising! I have been taking Bromelain and Arnica which helped greatly last time! Can't wait to see the final results!
