Vanity Poll: Would You Try SmartLipo?

Would You Try SmartLipo?

There's a new form of plastic surgery on the market, and it's called SmartLipo. It is considered smart because this new form of liposuction gets rid of unwanted fat with less pain and recovery time. You don't even need to go under general anesthesia, because only the areas the doctor is working on are numbed. A laser goes just beneath the skin and melts the fat with ultrasound. Then the melted fat is sucked out. The procedure is said to cause only minimal damage to the nerves and connective tissue, as compared to traditional liposuction that often causes trauma and bruising. People who undergo SmartLipo can usually go back to work within one to two days. Be warned, though, that you could end up paying between $1,700 to $7,000, depending on the area treated. So after hearing all this . . .

I think I would try it out if different forms of exercise weren't working. I've been lucky enough (so far) to have running and yoga as a good option for me. That said, my friend just had SmartLipo at a place in Austin - - and was happy with the results. She was one of those people that exercise just wouldn't work for. Needless to say, she was very happy with the results!

Had traditional Lipo and was very happy with it. This sounds great---but I wonder about the large differences in price.

in a few years maybe. Lipo is for spot reduction, the one thing that no amount of diet or exercise can do. Now if you have a lot of weight to lose lipo is definitely not the answer, and in that case I would suggest a gym.

I have had plastic surgery (breast augmentation) and I can tell you that nothing is more important that doing your research on your doctor. I checked my dr's medical license with the Texas Medical Board. You can find out a lot of credible information there.

I would do it in a heartbeat if I had the moolah.

I don't think I'd have lipo anyway (although there have been truly hateful moments directed at my inner thighs), but if I were to consider it I would definitely look into this. I don't really have any objections to plastic surgery if it makes you feel better about yourself.

I would.

I'm so far from 'perfect,' but the thought of plastic surgery scared me cr@pless. Sure, sometimes I thought to myself, heck it'd be 'easier' (hey, I'm a mom with them 'battle scars'/extra fat on me tummy :p). Maybe when I'm like 80 and can't get my skin tightened or something. But seriously, I can't go through with it. I got scared looking at people getting breast implants on tv. No matter how 'light' the procedure is, it's to me. So, NO.

I'm not a fan of getting surgery done just to remove a little bit of extra fat on your butt. Seriously, if you look like the girl in that picture and you want lipo, you need to be seeing a therapist and not a plastic surgeon.

I had a breast reduction last year and it was one of the best decisions I ever made. It was largely because of physical and medical reasons, but I'm not going to lie - there was a definite element of 'cosmetic' about that plastic surgery. I became well-endowed very quickly in high school and it would never have mattered how much exercise I did - nothing was going to reduce the size of my boobs and lift them back up! (Sorry for potential TMI there! :) While I think a lot of plastic surgery is unnecessary and it definitely shouldn't be performed on people who have issues with body dysmorphia, etc, quite frankly life is too short to be socially and psychologically crippled by something that can be fixed with surgery. If it's going to make you feel good about yourself and you accept the risks and can pay the fee, why not?

Hell no. I eat well and exercise.

The chick in the picture does NOT need lipo. I guess I could stand to do it, but only after I lost all the weight I needed to.

I personally can't see myself doing it, but 'never say never', i guess. I'm a little conflicted about plastic surgery in general: Although I can understand the argument that if someone has one thing that bothers them about themselves, plastic surgery could remedy that, I think that insecurities go deeper than the surface.

I had a consultation for SmartLipo on my upper arms. It seemed legit to me. I ended up being declined for it because my arms are "big" from muscle not fat. Yay, I guess!
