I have always wanted my neck to be smaller. No matter how much weight I lose it never looks like I've wanted. So when I heard about Smartlipo I was very excited. I went in for my consultation in November. The laser specialist took photos of me and gave me a price for the procedure, $2500.00.
After 4 months of saving up, I decided to schedule the procedure. I had blood work done and an EKG. Then I went in for the procedure. They gave me 2 valium and a couple of shots of pain meds. The doctor drew on my face where she was going to use the laser. The local anesthesia shot hurt the most. They really burned. But after I was numb i didnt feel anything.
The whole procedure took 30 minutes. I had to wait 20 minutes with ice on my neck and then I went home. Right when I got home I could tell that my neck was a little smaller.
The recovery was very fast. I took some pain meds for a headache I got from the procedure. I had to wear my garment for 4 days and on the 5th day I went back to work. Everyone can tell the difference already. I was told that it will take 4 months for the full results. I am very excited to see the outcome.
