Smart Lipo on Abdomen

Smart Lipo on the abdomen is typically performed to help remove the resistant fat on your abdomen that refuses to go away through diets and exercise. Instead of scraping away the fat, the Smart Lipo device melts it and then is drained away through a cannula. Some doctors leave it there to pass the body naturally.

finally took the chance. Abs, inner and outer thighs

the fluid stays in your body for 18+ hours - so I will have to watch this. I'm draining a lot of fluid. My abdomen hurts the most. When I sit to go the bathroom, the back of my thighs hurt to sit... at 12 noon and 5p. It's helped a lot.

I will post pictures soon. I did notice some loose skin in my abdomen below my umbilicus - the Dr. Said I might have to get a tt if it doesn't resolve... more pain in my thighs during the procedure than my abdomen. .I would just grimace through it. It felt like sharp shooting stabbing pains. I was repositioned several times during the procedure (side... have a follow up tomorrow and will keep everyone posted. Doctor said things look good. The skin on lower abdomen has settled so definitely no need for a tt. I do have lumps and some unevenness but... developing along with swelling in my ankles. Most difficulty is getting up from a sitting and lying position. Mt doctor told me to start massaging my lower back, abdomen and legs. Very difficult READ MORE

34 Years old having smartlipo on my lower abdomen - Franklin Lakes, NJ

again what I wanted done and explained to me that once you have smartlipo on the lower abdomen and gain a big amount of weight that my upper abdomen will protrude a little.  My weight fluctuates from 4... room before he began. Dr. Fondacaro marked the areas to be worked on which was the lower abdomen.  He then took pre-op photos. You are then laid on the op table where you experience tiny short pricks of... exactly from having lower abdomen SmartLipo. I notice a difference already even though I'm still swollen. I wear my girdle everyday all day. I wear Spanx to bed. I massage the treated area daily... feel more confident now and my shirts fit me better.

Smart Lipo Lower and Upper Abs

I have been going to this location for the past 2 years for a consult on Smart Lipo, but never could decide on what to do. I finally made my choice this year to have my upper and lower Abs done... working. I hope this helps and improves the tenderness I still have in my abdomen area. They are also going to do the ultrasound and red light to check for any fluid built up. Haven't been able to go... massage with the ultrasound and hand massage eased a lot of discomfort I have been experiencing. My right side of my abdomen is retaining more fluids than the left side. I go back in 2 weeks for... another one. I hope this completes the final drainage. This is what my lower and upper abdomen looks like after 7 weeks. I original didn't have any loose skin, but now it seems as if I do. I did have... stretch marks from my pregnancy on my abdomen. I hope the skin continues to improve with my healing process since its only been 7 weeks. Fingers crossed!! 15 hours ago
