Procedure(s) I had done:   None


Before making the decision to have SmartLipo done, I researched the area doctors. I was surprised to so few board certified surgeons performing it - although it is fairly new. I went in for a free consultation with Dr. Marino and immediately felt so comfortable. There was no wait time and everyone was courteous. Dr. Marino herself was incredibly genuine and I felt that her style was sincere and honest. She answered all of my questions without a hint of condescension and when I left I knew I would be back. Before my appointment I had tons of questions and they always got back to me right away. The procedure itself was almost enjoyable because the staff were so kind, thoughtful and - again - genuine. We laughed and talked about everything from politics to summer vacation spots. My procedure took almost 9 hours and they were with me every step of the way, never seemed to be tired or annoyed. They brought me water and snacks and continually checked in on me so make sure I was comfortable. The actual procedure was extremely comfortable for the most part. I had upper/lower abs done as well as chin. The initial numbing shot and chin local were the most painful parts of the whole thing. I would give them the highest rating possible and then some!
