Smart Lipo on Bat Wings - When Can I Expect Results?

I had smart lipo done 4 days ago and all I see are bruises. They took nearly 900 cc's out. When can i expect results? I'm a mid 30's African American female.

Thank you for your question. With a 900cc removal, loose skin may be one expectation.  If the skin is tight, you are very fortunate.

3-4 months

Typically final results from liposuction or SmartLipo will be present around 3-4 months.  it generally takes this long for the skin to contract to its final state.

900 cc is a large amount for an area like this even using the very latest version of Smartlipo laser. Be patient and I hope your not expecting a true miracle. within a month or 2 you should see the majority of the results but it can take up to a year or longer for final result.
