Monarch Med Spa Complaint - Smart Lipo - Smart Lipo With Vaser
PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA -- I had my procedures done on August 15th 2008 and August 26 2008. I had smart lipo with vaser done on my upper and lower abs, bra fat area, upper back, arms, and arm pitt area.
First of all, I am STILL wearing a garment on my stomach. This is true lipos suction. Don't be fooled by the advertisement of being non-invasive. It is very invasive. I couldn't move hardly for up to a week after my surgery. Using my stomach to lift myself out of bed was out of the question. Raising my arms to put on shirts was a tedious and painful process.
Even weeks and weeks later, I was not able to lift my arms straight up or do any kind of rigorous exercise using my stomach muscles.
The appearance of my stomach is lumpy till this day! I did lose fat, buy after 12000 dollars, it was not worth the poor results I received.
Hardly any fat was removed from my back and arms. Therefore, there has been no change in their appearance. Other than that I have scars all over this size of cigarette burns in my skin!!!!
I don't recommend this surgery at all. It only seems to be effective on the lower chin from the observations I have made of others as well.
It is a very long healing process. The side of my stomach still feel weird four months later and all my fat is not gone.
I could handle the money, pain, and scars if there were reasonable results...
This procedure was unsatisfactory and I am an "ideal" candidate - 30 years old, healthy, and 10-15 pounds overweight.
