Would Do Again, but Was More Than Uncomfortable

I am now a month out from smartlipo on my upper and lower abs and flanks.

It took a good three days before I felt like I could go without pain pills. I thought I had pretty good pain tolerance, but maybe not.

The procedure itself was uncomfortable in some areas, and actually in my flank areas, it tickled and I was laughing.

I am very very pleased so far. I do have a ridge below my belly button which is getting better, but compared to what I was before, this seems very minor.

I now have a waist and I am now buying all new clothes because nothing fits. It is very exciting that I have dropped at least two jean sizes and clothes actually look nice on me. I would consider having more done, but I think I need more time to "forget" the pain that I went through, even though it has been very much well worth it!


wowwwwwwww u sound great! congrats I just had my upper n lower abs done (4 days ago) and at the moment i can see minor changes but nothing dramatic. and im getting a little nervous however your response sounds great.. I have two holidays booked in june and july and I am hoping with work it will come off me. I am assuming its swelling hence the reason for not much change yet.. Great work, to the doc, and congrats to you..enjoy your new body!

mazza... I know exactly how you feel.. the nervousness especially early on. I felt the EXACT same way.. it really seemed like after I got past about well the first two weeks of wearing the garment.. about a week after that, things really seemed to improve for me. I hope the best for you...I go in for my 1 month check on 5-11-09.. maybe I will have some before and after pics. Good Luck!

Dr. Martin spent 45 minutes on a private one on one FREE consult explaining everything about the procedure and what to expect. He never pressured me, just gave me the facts and realistic expectations. I would very much recommend Dr. Martin to anyone
