Actually I had 2 procedures done Smart Lipo on my stomach upper and lower and flanks with Natural Fat put back in my cheeks . I also had DOT laser done on my cheeks. I will provide some before/ after photos of my face first. I was very nervous the day of the procedure but the dr gave me anti anxiety medication 1 hr prior to procedure. His medical team are very professional and nice. His offices are clean and well kept. Ok back to the procedure. Once you get over the shock that he whips down your undies and starts drawing there is no turning back. The nurse took photos of my areas to be revamp. I'm anxious nervous and excited all at the same time. Am I making the right decision? I just don't want to look like an "old" tired Nonni (grandma) I brought some old compression garments to see if I could wear them (I couldn't) off to the procedure room getting down to business ! He first makes an incision and his assistant starts liquefying the fat. OMG I CANT LOOK! We were laughing and joking during this part. She explained what she was doing. Next in Dr Bassin and performs his magic. A couple of times it tickled near my flanks and other times OUCH OUCH OUCH! Did I say Ouch? Anyway the procedure is doable . The ladies wrapped me in my compression and next the natural fat injected into my cheeks! If your afraid of needles DONT LOOK. Even though I'm swollen I think it came out great. Will post photos shortly. Next we are off for DOT LAZER on my face. Ms Smy was very caring and informative. They numb your face for about an hour then the procedure begins omg it wasn't the most pleasant experience (I had the most intense procedure done ) I was counting the minutes! Counting how many cheeks chin eyes I had . Oh boy rather than WTF! My Amy was great but the procedure dam I rather give birth ! After it was over it was like u had a very bad sun burn but I can already see the difference ! Will be posting my progress sorry about the typos I'm on my iPhone ??

Post Day 2

My face is on fire! Even putting water on it makes it hurt. Taking my meds and following instructions can't wait till the swelling go down . Finally stopped draining from the smart lipo. Will send photo when I can bend and put on underwear

Amy is the best ! She is gentle caring and soft handed . What can I say about Dr Bassin he listens to your concerns, funny and reassuring. His assistant who is doing her fellowship is the bomb!
