Many women struggle with "saddle bags" or excess fat on the outer thighs. This 33-year-old woman wanted a slimmer figure and was especially concerned about her thighs and hips. She knew that in Columbia, liposuction was a popular procedure. However, she didn't want to take a lot of time off from work to recover and wanted to find out if there was a less-invasive option. She read about Smartlipo MPX™ on Dr. Chang's website and decided to schedule a consultation.
Dr. Chang assessed her current physical condition and confirmed that Smartlipo would be a good option for her. Because Smartlipo uses laser energy to assist with fat removal, there is less bruising, swelling and downtime after surgery. Additionally, the procedure can be performed in about an hour using a local anesthetic. Recovery time is typically 1 or 2 days, and most people return to their normal activities after that time. She couldn't wait to have a more proportional figure and made an appointment for Smartlipo in the Baltimore area.
Her “after” photos show great improvement in the size and shape of her thighs, as well as her overall body contour. Her upper and lower body is balanced, and she feels great about the outcome. She is thankful to Dr. Chang and his entire staff.Surgeon: Eric Chang, MD
