smart lipo anyone?

Has anyone on the board had SmartLipo? If so, was it worth it and would you recommend it rather than traditional lipo?

Re: smart lipo anyone?

I had vaser lipo with smart lipo done 2 months ago. In 2005 I also had tumescent lipo done by a different surgeon. For me the lipo was all about sculpting, not about taking off large amounts. Both procedures were done on my outer and inner thighs and hips/butt. The reason I went back for lipo was because the first surgeon did not remove all of the fat so I had pouches left on my outer thighs. The surgeon may have been good but I think smart lipo is much more precise. From what I have learned it is easier for the Dr to see the results as he is working and there is less judging or guessing involved. Also, vaser and smart lipo are more "gentle". That doesn't mean its a "walk in the park" but the Dr doesn't have to be as rough when trying to remove the fat.
The recovery hasn't been too bad. My husband had his stomach and flanks done the day before me by the same surgeon. His is healing slower because the legs drain more fluid in the first few days than the stomach does which helps keep swelling down.
If you get the lipo and which ever procedure you use be sure to wear a good compression garment. This is soooo important for good results.
Good luck
