I am overjoyed with the results of my liposuction! Dr. Gilad Segev and Dr. Hamwi at American Lipo Centers are fantastic!
I was nervous to undergo Smart Lipo, it was something I had thought about but didn’t follow through on. Until now, Dr. Segev provided the initial assessment and cautioned on what to expect after the initial procedures. There is some pain involved but nothing that prevented me from doing my daily routine.
One week after the procedure I was out running 1-3 miles 3 days a week and getting ready to do my first 5K of 2015.
The results are better than I expected and every day I see change as the swelling has decreased. So far I have dropped 1 full clothing size. I now wear a 10 and can also fit in some size 8 clothing.
I had a series of six procedures over a three month period. After the first procedure friends and family were wowed by how slender I looked. My hips and abdomen were flatter and I felt better about my appearance.
Then I decided on a second set of procedures thinned my calfs and bra line. After three weeks once the swelling decreased along with minimal bruising those areas were taking shape. My last procedures included the flanks and thighs. Through it all I kept an optimistic attitude and was loving the differences I was observing.
The changes have been gradual and constant with my body contours continuing to change. It’s been four months since those first procedures and I don’t regret deciding to do this for myself.
I believe that entering Dr Segev’s office for that first consultation with an open mind played an important part in my recovery. Listening to Dr. Segev’s suggestions and follow -up care instructions made my recovery go smoothly. I followed the post-op instructions wore the garment and binder as prescribed.
The staff has been great! They were friendly and reassuring during pre-op and post-op. They reviewed post op instructions, and answered any questions I had.
Would I do it again? Yes I would!
I recommend Dr. Segev: he is an amazing surgeon and has a calming manner that put me at ease during the procedures.
I am excited because the new me is getting ready for my first half marathon,
I have more confides in my appearance and I just purchased a mermaid style gown for my daughter’s upcoming wedding, a dress I never thought I would ever be able to wear before the smart lipo procedures.
