Getting any weight loss procedure is a big decision in your life. Making sure you have done your research about laser liposuction is key. Here are resources for you.


I am 33 years old, 120 lbs. 16 days ago I had lipo on my neck for hereditary and age turkey neck. My PS also used laser resurfacing on inner side of skin to counter the loose skin as my skin has poor elasticity.

I am required to wear the garment 24/7 for 3 weeks. This seems excessive to me and I'm starting to get a bit of cabin fever! Medium pain, swelling a bruising. By 5th day all bruising had gone and swelling much decreased. The numbness was a bit of a shock, though the much of the feeling has come back in the last few days. The overall effect looked great at day 5 and I was really excited. Now however, I have 2 indentations on my neck under my chin and the skin seems loose and sagging there as well. I am starting to freak out a bit. It's really quite noticeable and I'm concerned about people noticing it when I finally get to venture out in public. It makes my neck look a lot older than I am. I have had lymphatic massage twice and found this really helped break down the lump. I wish I'd done it sooner.

I was wondering if anyone else had experienced the loose skin and indentations after neck lipo and whether this went away and in how long? I've not been able to find many people who have had smart lip with co2 laser on the underside skin, I'm curious about anyone else who has done this and what their results were. I will post photo's as soon as I work out how to download from my camera :-)

My mid-section was the last place to gain weight and the only place it WASN'T coming off of (go figure). I had lipo to get my waist back and smooth my stomach out so I could wear pants again. My advice to others would be to make sure it's right for you.

I had SmartLipo with Dr. Okoro through SonoBello on 8/12. He did my upper and lower abs and waist. It was my first cosmetic procedure and also my first surgery, period (unless you count having my wisdom teeth removed). I did local anesthesia and was super nervous about being awake for the procedure.

When I met with Dr. O the day of the procedure, he was confident, assuring and very patient – all the things I needed. He answered all of my inane questions for what probably was the 5th time then walked me through exactly what would happen. When I had problems taking the pre-procedure cocktail-o'-pills, he gave me a secret way to take them without gagging. When I objected to his choice of OR music, he let me listen to my iPod. And when the nerves got the best of me, he asked me questions that made me forget about what I was nervous about in the first place. These things may seem little, but it was my first surgery and it made such an impact on the overall experience.

Results wise, when I first stood up – HOLY COW! I had a waist again! I couldn't believe I could see results that quickly. I was in shock the entire day about how amazing I looked. Granted, I'm not quite 1 week post-op yet, and now I'm a bit swollen, but I can still tell Dr. O did fabulous work. The downtime for me was also virtually non-existent. My procedure was at 11:30am, and I took my last pain pill at 6pm. I have relatively no bruising, no pain, no nausea, my incisions are healing nicely and I went back to work on Monday. I know everyone heals differently, but I have other friends who have had plastic surgery with different doctors and their recovery time was MUCH different. And by different, I mean worse.

I loved the experience and my doctor, I had the surgery in January and just recently went in for my 6 month post visit and I am STILL swollen. Anyone know how to help minimize the swelling. I know they said it could take up to 6-12 months, but it is really annoying. I can tell a big difference in the way my stomach looks, especially after having a baby, but I am just wondering about the swelling more so than anything because if that goes away, then I may see real results. Any suggestions? TIA!

I went in with 15" arms and came out an hour and a half later with 12.5"!!!! Minimal pain as far as the procedure went it was the after pain that was kinda uncomfortable. I am a month out and my arms are sensitive to the touch still but I believe it was so worth it!

Fast procedure
Instant results
I am happy to put on a tank top

*Have to wear a compression garment 24/7 for 2 weeks (cant really hide it under your business atire)
*Didnt expect to feel soar to the touch a month later
