Why didn't smart lipo work? (Photo)

Smartlipo not working.
It is important to know going into smartlipo that it is not a weight loss procedure nor a guarantee against future weight gain. Typically our patients will lose more than 5 pounds after smartlipo. If your weight is the same or even a few pounds more, you probably gained a significant amount of weight. Post liposuction weight gain can erase any smartlipo results. I would return to my surgeon and compare my weights before and after the procedure.
Thanks for your question and photos. It’s difficult to tell you it has failed because you only provided an after photo but full results from SmartLipo may take up to 6 months. At the time of your consultation, your doctor determines whether you are a candidate or not. If you have not seen any improvement, it’s not that SmartLipo failed but perhaps not the right procedure for you. Please visit your doctor for an alternative. Hope this helps. Best Dr. Katz

Smart lipo didn't work because you needed a tummy tuck and didn't get one
