Smoothshapes - Atlanta, GA

I had Smartlipo done on my upper and lower abs/waist in mid-May, 2011 and a second procedure on my inner/outer thighs and hips in June, 2011.

I got mine through Groupon. Also, there are several treatments that are all the same type of thing - endermologie, VelaShape, Smoothshapes - probably more than that so look for any of these on Groupon, Half Off Depot, social living, etc... READ COMMENT

Good luck! Lymphatic massage is supposed to be a great help, too. READ COMMENT

Definitely keep massaging and you should be fine. Even with waiting as long as I did, they mostly went away (except a lumpy spot on my abdomen that STILL hasn't resolved. I think this is because I waited so long). READ COMMENT

I waited 5 months because I kept waiting to see a difference after surgery and finally decided that it just wasn't happening. You really should do it long before that. I just had a touch-up and an extra area done in May, 2012 (the bra... READ COMMENT
