Do not waste time on smartlipo. painful with no results

Smart Lipo: Was not worth it
Cost: $4,500
Pain: Severe
Satisfaction: Poor

i was told i was the perfect candidate for this procedure as long as i did the upper and lower abs. the rep mislead me about results and since i signed a form indicating results were not guaranteed, they will not refund my money. it was painful with no results. i am disputing the charge with care credit.
if this doesn’t work i’ll be forced to go to the local media and share my experience. now that i have gone thru this procedure i can only see it working on women that only have a very small amount of fat that needs to be removed. when they saw the size and amount of belly fat i had, they should have been honest and told me i was not a good candidate.

Waiting for the wow!!!!!!! results

Smart Lipo: Was worth it
Cost: $3,499
Pain: Uncomfortable
Satisfaction: Good

HI! Well I had the procedure done on 10/01/08 treatment area was both arms, flanks, abdomen.
I am 3 weeks post-op now and I am starting to see a difference in my abdomen and flank area. My arms look exactly the same which is a little dissapointing. For anyone doing arms, this is the thing. I, for example have fat accumulated directly under the top of the arm this procedure involves removing more from the back side of the arm and lower arm not the top part. I guess it probably has something to do with the lymphatic tissue that is very delicate and located at the top near the breast, that’s why I think that area is not touched.
Guys, don’t be fooled they advertise it as little down time but be ready to at least take a week off work. The pain, especially in the abdominal area is pretty substancial. I BRUISE EASILY AND LOOKED LIKE A TRAIN RAN OVER ME.
If your circulation is not good, do start taking Arnica tabs at least 2 weeks before procedure. I will start lymphatic massage next week.
Do wear your compression garment, one that is really good, I purchased one made in Colombia (remember colombian women are really into surgery , they know their stuff.)
MY procedure was done in FT. Lauderdale,FL. it was a good experience, local anesthesia not bad.

My experience was great

Smart Lipo: Was worth it
Cost: $6,700
Pain: Mild
Satisfaction: Excellent

One day after.   Can allready see that I’m more contoured.
I have had 3 babies one after the other and felt I could use a little contouring.  I had outer and inner thighs done and also what they call the banana roll.  I went to one place where they were distant, rude, etc.  Just not a good experience there.  I decided to check out one more place around my hometown  (Goshen, IN) and I am so glad I did. 
First the pin pricks for the local numbing then the larger laser needle going in and numbing and melting the fat.  They put on music for me and talked to me the whole time.  They even bought me food.  I only felt a little pain at the begining but nothing that was unbareable.  After the procedure was over I had to stand up and get dressed, well I almost fainted.  The feeling of being sick to my stomach and fainting was a worse feeling than the lipo.  It’s a breeze!
They gave me painkillers and I haven’t had to take any.  I am a bit sore but nothing bad.  The holes have almost stopped leaking.  I would recommend ordering Spanx offline rather than wearing what the doc gives you to wear. 
I will update later with some before and after images!

Love it love it love it!

Smart Lipo: Was worth it
Cost: $4,500
Pain: Mild
Satisfaction: Excellent

I am a mother of two and have the typical mommy pouch! I workout 3-4 times a week and eat not too poorly but couldn’t shake the added tummy weight.
I have now had just had my second smart lipo procedure, the first was on Sept 23rd on my front abdomen. I was alert and functioning with a bit of pain. The bruising faded in about a week I am very pleased with the results so far.
I had the second procedure yesterday Oct 14th on my sides (love handles), I have found this one is less painful but I am feeling more "beaten up" from the surgery. I was awake and chatting throughout both procedures but found after the second one I was less alert and less functioning afterwards. BUT still very happy with my results already – although I am still very swollen and bruised.
If I had to I would do it all over again!!!!

Smart lipo works

Smart Lipo: Was worth it
Cost: $15,000
Pain: Mild
Satisfaction: Excellent

I had smart lipo on about every area of my body, it has changed my life for the best. At 39 years old and years of trying to get ride of fat in many areas, {edited – doctor information appears above the review for registered users} helped me with that. This is one of the finest smart lipo offices and {edited} is one of the best,being in the medical field myself I could have choose any Doctor for a very discounted rate. But after meeting with {edited} and knowing the rate was not discounted much (cost still very reasonable) there was no more deciding for me.
I went from a size 14 to a 10. He made me feel safe before, during and after surgery , even called me over the weekend to make sure I was feeling ok.
I am very happy with myself inside and out now.
If any one has questions from a real patient contact me and I will be happy to share what is best about smart lipo.

So far so good

Smart Lipo: Was worth it
Cost: $2,500
Pain: Mild
Satisfaction: Excellent

Tomorrow is 2 weeks since my procedure.  It is amazing to me how much better I feel and look in that time.  My stomach is flat.  I can wear shorter tops.  I am so very happy with everything.  I would recomemnd this highly as long as you have a good doctor.  Their is no pain at all for me.  I am still wearing the compression garment everyday and night.  2 more weeks for that.  Can’t wait to get that off, getting uncomforable now but it is worth doing it. I will probably still wear it when I work out after that time for awhile because it will help with the swelling.  If anyone wants to ask me any questions I would be happy to answer them.

Upper and lower abs~smart lipo totally worth it

Smart Lipo: Was worth it
Cost: $6,000
Pain: Uncomfortable
Satisfaction: Excellent

I had my smart lipo procedure done on Thursday September 25, 2008. The procedure took about 2 hours because my doctor was so precise. I went to an all women’s surgery center in Los Angeles, and I could not recommend a better place. Not only was the staff and the doctor extremely professional, but they were all VERY warm, kind and caring. I had been to 4 other plastic surgeons in the Los Angeles area, which were all male, and once I found my doctor, I knew she was the right one for me.
I had local anesthia, which consisted of me taking a sleeping pill and a pain pill 30 minutes before the surgery and I was given about 10 shots all over my upper, lower abdomen and around the upper pubic area. She made two small incisions on my upper pubic area and one in my belly button. I was then filled with salt water and lidocaine so it would puff up the area and numb me inside. The procedure actually tickeled me. I didn’t feel any discomfort, just a light tugging. I would honestly say the worst part of the procedure for me was the shots.
I’m not over weight. I’m a 30 year old 5 foot and weigh 109 woman, but I had a little bit of a lower belly. I work out constantly and dance all the time, but still wasn’t happy with my stomach. I was scared of any plastic surgery that would involve leave scars, cause me to be cut open and put to sleep. I researched smart lipo for several months and read tons of reviews. I decided once I found my doctor that it was something I wanted to try.
I must say after the procedure, I was very surprised. I felt no pain in the areas that were treated. I bruised and swelled up badly, which is to be expected, and the worst part of it was the swelling in my pubic area and thighs that made it very umcomfortable for me to sleep at night and very uncomfortable to wear the surgical garmet they make you wear, since I was so swollen down there and hanging out everywhere.
I am a week and a half post surgery, and a TON of my swelling has gone down, I have black bruising all down my inner thighs, but they dont hurt at all. I never experienced any pain from the surgery, just the uncomfortablness of the swelling. Maybe I got lucky, I don’t know, but so far, I do know this was a great choice for me and so far it’s been a good experience. I have my two week visit coming up in about 4 days, so I’m looking forward to that and of course the final results.
