I had SmartLipo on May 18,2012 on my upper and lower abs. I feel as though I made the work mistake of my life. I am starting to see some body changes, but I am still in a considerable amount of pain. It has been 5 weeks, I went back to work 4 days later and had to take pain medication to work and maintain some conististency. I feel like some one burnt my stomach with hot oil. Think twice about, I do know every person experiences are different. I had lots of scar tissue from a prior surgeries.
