I'm almost 5'3" and about 135lbs which is "heavy" for me. I have a small stomach and waist but have always dealt with heavy thighs even when I was 125lbs. I really hated the way the back of my legs looked saggy and even though friends tell me I look great, I felt like I should have nicer legs with the amount of time I was spending at the gym. After feeling frustrated for a few years, I'm almost 34 now, I wanted to make a change for me. So I had my inner and outer done. It's been 3 days and I'm still as sore as I was on day one. I realize this is a long process and will keep posting my results as time progresses. My doctor told me that Smartlipo is a fickle procedure in the fact that you don't always get the 100% results you want but if I could be happy with at least 50% then he recommended getting it done so here I am.
I'm about 3 weeks post-op and still have...

I have noticed that some of the previous lumpy areas on my outer thighs is gone so that's a relief. I am however starting to notice more hard lumps in areas especially my inner thighs. I'm hoping to get back to the gym in another week or so.
So it's now been almost 5 months since my surgery....

On a side note, I just started Velashape on my outer thighs and back of my legs near my buttocks and have seen significant results in decreasing the extra "fat" in that area causing the double lines. I had my 2nd treatment today and so far so good! Definite improvement overall and it seems to be helping the lumps/scarring as well.

The outer part of my legs looks smoother overall but probably not noticable to anyone else besides myself. Unfortunately the back of my leg that meets my butt area now has two creases instead of just the one. This is what bothers me the most since it just looks so unnatural and makes me appear heavier than I am. The Velshape worked a liitle bit to diminish this but did not eliminate it and the change was only temporary. I was told another lipo surgery "might" take care of it but I don't think I want to go thru all this again. Ultimately just a huge disappointment since I'm even less comfortable in a bathing suit than before and I've never had issues with that. =(
