About a year ago I went through 1 cycle of cool sculpting. It left me with a form of hyperplasia, causing my stomach and waist tissue to toughen and enlarge. The only cure is to remove with liposuction. I am now preparing to get correctional liposuction on my abdomen and waist. Ive booked my appointment dr. Michael A. Giuffrida at sonobello. He seems to be a pretty good surgeon and I'm very impressed with his work. I'm really nervous honestly, because I'm the type of girl who would be the one in a million with a rare side effect.
A little background
I am 5'7" and 149lbs.
22 years old with. No children and 1 former cosmetic procedure.
My goal is to have a normal looking waist and stomach and be able to dress all cute again.

Day of procedure

Quite impressed with what I've seen so far. The medication made me fall asleep during the procedure. It didn't hurt at all. I was so happy when I looked at myself and my tummy looked flat. I haven't looked like this in years. I hope when the swelling is down I'll look fabulous!!!! Thank you dr. G

So today I am not feeling much pain. The norco makes me really sleepy. I cleaned my house and walked my dogs with very little pain. I took my first shower and I really love how I look

Smart Lipo on abdomen and waist

Dr. Giuffrida is absolutely amazing. After a previous procedure I was left with peridoxial adipose hyperplasia all over my stomach and flanks. I went to Dr.G to remove all of the damaged tissue and get a smaller waist. Although he was not familiar with the condition he assured me everything would turn out great. He is very attentive and made sure I did not experience any discomfort during the procedure. He also called immediately after leaving to ensure I made it home safely and was feeling alright. I really appreciate how kind his staff was to me during the whole procedure. I am currently 11 days post op and I'm extremely impressed with the results I am seeing so far. He has removed all of my stomach bulge and given my body a whole new shape! thank you
