I am interested in smartlipo laser. I am looking at a PS website about the procedure. It claims to tighten skin. I am extremely afraid of a FTT. I know I need one. I have had three big boys and a lot of stretch marks which go to my belly button. They are especially bad low on my stomach.I have always had a large waist, which I hate more than anything.I would like to have a FTT if I weren't scared to death of this procedure. I was thinking of going with the smart lipo to get rid of some of my waist and maybe tighten some of my stomach. Does this procedure work? I don't want to waste my money because these procedure is very expensive. It would be worth it to me just to make my waist smaller. thank you for any help.
