Is 8 weeks after smart lipo enough time to heal before having a revision? (photos)
Doctor Answers 13
I think you should wait at least 5 months before doing a revision
it is impossible to know how much improvement you will continue to get, until you are at about
6 months. thus 5 months is the earliest i would do a revision - unless there was something very unusual.

Typically after 8 weeks, the swelling has resolved enough to allow us to see where your results will be. If extra fat is noted at this point, taking you back to remove more is fine.
Thanks for your question. Because SmarLipo can take up to 6 months, it’s best to wait it out. Your doctor agreeing to revise doesn’t necessarily indicate you’re ready for more treatment. Should the 6 months pass and you not have the results you had hoped for, you may want to consider a second opinion with a board-certified dermatologist to discuss what options you’re a candidate for. Hope this helps. Best, Dr. Katz

Post SmartLipo you should wait at minimum 3-6 months before your second procedure. My suggestion is seeking a professional who is experienced in VASER Total Define Technique. This type of 4D liposculpture truly is the best body contouring procedure performed. Please consult with an experienced cosmetic surgeon who specializes in revision laser liposuction procedures.
