Spent: $8,400 in Shreveport, La
I'm 32 yrs old, 5'3, weighed 153lbs, and I wear a size 8 pre-op. I run 5days a week and constantly worked out, but couldn't lose the belly fat nor the back rolls. So for this reason I decided to have smart-lipo.
I had my procedure yesterday. I had general anesthesia so i was asleep the entirer time. When i woke up and the meds had wore off I was in alot of pain, but the nurse gave me a pain shot right away. I experienced alot of draining the day of surgery. I haven't seen my result yet, because i have to wear a garment and foam padding for 2days before i can remove it. My Dr was great, he called me the night of my surgery to check on me. I had 3000cc's of fat removed and after surgery the nurses where telling me how tiny my waist was and how they were so jealous. I'm excited to see.
I will post pictures soon.

The 3rd day post-op. This was the day I could remove my garment and shower. I can say, i was very pleased!!. I'm still draining and very sore. I've been taking my pain meds and celebrex the doctor prescribed alone with the Arnica product.

Had my week post-op visit last week and the Doctor stated that my progress was going great. My waist is small to date, even though, he said i still had alot of swelling. If I'm this satisfied now, I can't wait until after the 4months to see my final results.
Today is my 14th day post-op and I'm still very sore.
