Smart Lipo on Flanks, Lower Abdomen, Inner & Outer Thighs and Knees

I'm 36 years old, 5ft 6" tall and weigh 150lbs (dress size 8). For as long as I can remember I've had "muffin top" flanks when I wear low rise jeans and my thighs have always been very full. Recently I've been very aware of the fat in my inner thighs...particularly as I've moved to FL and wearing bikinis more often! I'm scheduled for SmartLipo on 02/11 and here are my before photos. I'm...

So Far So Good with Smart Lipo

2nd Time is a Charm

I had smart lipo on my saddlebags last friday. The office I went to was great! The procedure went well. I have done pretty good so far, I have had some bruising not too much drainage.

I have had this problems with my...

The Smart Lipo Results Are Just As Discussed, Only Better - The Villages, FL

The Redefinition in the Chin Area Was Exactly What We Had Hoped For. The chin area was connecting more and more to the throat area, loosing any definition between the two. Now a chin is more pronounced and jowls are minimized. The only better solution would have been surgery, and even the thought of cutting and knives was not what I wanted at this time. Dr Serra was in full agreement and...

Love my results, works best on thin or average size people

I am not obese but I do have big legs, I am a size 4 or 6. I was "blessed" with my mothers saddlebags and large thighs. I exercise and run regularly, about 2-3 times a week. Even doing this, I have excess fat on my hips and a small belly pouch from having 3 kids. I went to a doctor in Winter Park FL.
