It's really a great way to reduce the intense lines that form around the eyes. READ MORE

Best Thing I Ever Did! - Amherst, MA

I am an person of Irish decent and I have very dark hair. And the hair was in places that I did not want to maintain all the time. This includes facial hair, belly line, breast, armpit, bikini line. So when I had the funds I had laser hair removal done. I am so happy with the results. No more shaving! READ MORE

not !Wow! -

I was maybe ten pounds over my normal weight; a work injury caused me to not be able to exercise for over a year and I gained a lot of belly and side fat. It bothered me a lot when my jeans began not to fit me. I researched Smart Lipo for a long time.

What do YOU do to fix the affects of a bad lipo outcome? Clothes? Mental health? Need tips.

Hi, I had lipo done a couple years ago. After initial 'good' results, I noticed that every area not lipo'd got fat. I was a small breasted woman and now they are huge. I... READ MORE

Jill, RS has grown a lot since I got my procedure. But what I did was do a search for the procedure and every search brought me to RS and I clicked on the links. I saw that some people said: not worth it, but more people said: worth it.... READ COMMENT

I'm sorry you disagree with me completely Jill. But my point wasn't about people's decisions not to get a procedure and having support here, it is about people offering "support" in a different way, such as offering facts, that is where... READ COMMENT

This seems totally dangerous and I am wondering why lay-people are commenting and giving advice on something and not physicians. There is a reason corsets are not used in society except as a fetish. (These comments and this thread... READ COMMENT

I'd be interested to know who that surgeon is; it would be good to have docs come out and speak the truth about lipo and all the gimmicky procedures they come out with. READ COMMENT

It's aggressive now; that's what people don't realize; it's just an aggressive procedure if you think about it. READ COMMENT
