Over half of being happy with the end result of any plastic surgery…is the expectations that we have when we decide on a procedure. In this article, we address a woman who has a trim, in-shape body – but, is unhappy with her thighs (join the club, right? : )). She provided pictures of impossibly leggy models and asked if she had Smart lipo….could her legs look like that? Yes…IF her legs were 5 inches longer and hereditary. That is not to say that Smart lipo won’t do an amazing job at taking bulk away from the thigh area. It certainly will – but, this is a common issue in plastic surgery – people need to understand that we cannot go into the procedure with unrealistic expectations. The difference between improving upon what we were born with…and asking for the impossible must be reconciled BEFORE we attempt any procedure. Smart lipo CAN produce incredible results…but, it cannot add 5 inches to your legs : ). However, meeting with a Smart Lipo Top Doc can give you the benefit of understanding that while you cannot add those 5 inches….the results WILL make your legs look longer, slimmer and more proportionate – regardless of their current stature.
