    Default Laser Liposuction

    Has anyone here had laser liposuction?
    I have flabby legs that are really bothering me more than anything. Any suggestions?

    I had smart liposuction or "laser liposuction" one time and I did like my results. Just be careful because some people complain of it being loose or bumpy after liposuction because there is no fat to support the skin. If your skin is pretty elastic, it might help. If you don't mind some bumps or loose skin, then go for it. I know it will make your legs smaller. If you have good skin, you might have fantastic results. Go to realself . com and look for laser or smart lipo pictures of legs and thighs. Some of them are great.

    Just out of curiosity, how much was it, and was it painful?

    I have just completed my third session of laser lipo on my upper arms (called Bingo Wings here in the UK!) They have both shrunk by one inch and dont look any bumpier than before.

    I saw recently in our local news a segment about this laser lipo therapy and was very interested in it. Any one can give us an idea what the cost for it is here in the US?

    I just had a tummy tuck. I am thrilled with the results. It's painful and the healing takes a while, but for the first time in my life, I honestly feel like I'm not fat, and that feels great!

    I paid 3300$ for smart lipo of my upper and lower abdomen. It DID help because I swear to God I lost 5 inches in my waist. I am not kidding. I was so depressed after having my daughter and seeing all of that tummy fat that I just went and did it. I probably should have taken that money and got the sleeve instead though for my health but hadn't thought of weight loss surgery at that time. BUT it was still nice to have a smaller waist and feel better. I can tell you that some people do have lumps or bumps or wavy skin after smart lipo so just try to judge if your skin is resilient. I would recommend a tummy tuck though for better results/flat tummy. You will still have loose skin after lipo if you already have loose skin, it will just be less of it.

    Oh and as far as pain, it was uncomfortable and weird but it wasn't painful at least for me. I'm not sure every one can say the same. I did feel sore for a couple of weeks post op.
