"Old" Man Loses Love Handles

I am a 54 year old man in pretty good shape. No matter what I did I always had love handles "hanging" around. They weren't really bad until I put pants on, then you could notice them. I decided to try the Smart Lipo only 3 days ago.

Went to Dr. in Dallas and the results shocked me. Right out of surgery the results were noticeable. I wasn't knocked totally out, he prefers to be able to talk to you during procedure. No pain at all during the operation. Truth is the most pain I have had was removing the tape covering the bandages. As others have said the pain is similar to a hard workout. The area still has some numbness, similar to your foot falling asleep.

If the results keep looking better (they say after the swelling goes down it will) I will be really impressed.

Hope this helps someone decide. It took me a year to get the courage.

Here I am 6 weeks out and found several things.  One they don't really mention the numbness that starts immediatly and lfor me lasted about 5 weeks. You notice it but figure when it goes away life is good.  That however is when you then get to "feel" the discomfort.  When I jog I still have to wear the wrap as it is the only time it has hurt a lot.  The area apparantly isn't fond of bouncing up and down.   It isn't unbearable but hurts more than any other time in the process. When sitting for a while it still swells and then feels a bit uncomfortable, feels more like you are wearing you belt to high. 

I mention all this only for those who believe you get the procedure and it a couple of days life is back to normal.  It isn't or at least not for me.  Everything is cool as long as I wear the wrap, but once off the swelling continues and it becomes noticeable.  I would still do it again as the results are really good.  It doesn't take the love handles totally away but the softball is now a couple of golf balls.  When I get my 3 month pictures I will share.
