3 weeks after tickle lipo for my chin. I see a Huge Difference already! I gave Dr Leslie Smith a hug. I already feel MORE confident about having my picture taken for the wedding in 2 months.


At first I wondered what did I get myself into, but I would do it again. Comfortable procedure and I now get into a smaller size pants! I have tried everything- exercise, diet, they don’t make clothes for rolls. This procedure is unbelievable-amazing.I should have done this sooner


I had tickle lipo 4 weeks ago to my abdomen and fat transfer to my bottom at Sapphire. After my third child my backside flattened out! My large tummy is now way smaller and my bottom is round and smooth-wow! I know of other people who had this done somewhere else and the fat shifted or it didn’t take and their tummy wasn’t much different. Mine looks GOOD! Thank you Thank you. They say it takes 6 months to heal I already see big changes at 4 weeks!

First let me tell you that I was so very much looking forward to my procedure on the 19th. In talking about it with friends and family I realized just how much my self esteem has improved with these changes. Thank you for providing what is sure to be an improvement in my self image. I feel like I am in expert hands with my doctor, Dr Leslie Smith, at Sapphire.


Dr. Smith and the staff at Sapphire Advanced Aesthetics were very professional. I felt quite comfortable throughout the whole procedure and am thrilled with the results! It is nice to see my jeans fit me in a more flattering way.


My husband wanted to take me to Florida for a vacation and SCUBA. I explained to Dr Leslie, okay broke down and cried - had a melt down. Who are we kidding, this body hasn’t seen a bathing suit in 10 years. (48 years old and 3 kids later! ) My options were tummy tuck - that costs way too much money and too much downtime. So I had Tickle lipo with Dr Smith at Sapphire, 3 weeks later I lost 7 inches around my abdomen… 3 1/2 weeks!!! For my follow up appointment, I cried again, but this was because it worked! I can wear a bathing suit, a tankini, and look GREAT! Something that works, doesn’t cost much, and I was just about back to my routine on day 3. Thanks for doing such a great job. My middle area now matches the rest of me. My doctor and nurse were really professional and made me feel comfortable at Sapphire.

I am a diabetic on an insulin pump. I saw Dr Leslie and she said I would be a great tickle lipo candidate if I controlled my glucose levels better. I worked at for 3 months before Dr Leslie would agree to take me on as a patient. After the procedure, which was comfortable, I lost 10 pounds, my insulin requirements went down by half, and I am 2 sizes smaller, I have more energy, and even my diabetes doctor was impressed!. I would do this again in a heart beat!


Dr. Smith is an incredible physician and is extremely knowledgeable with decades of surgical experience. I decided to have my first tickle liposuction procedure with her because I know I can rely on her abilities as a surgeon.She has a calm bedside manner and has a genuine concern for her patients. For example, she provides augmented procedures as a gift to ensure optimal results for her patients. She definitely goes above and beyond to keep you as informed, relaxed and comfortable as possible. I would highly recommend Dr. Smith as a surgeon with great expertise and a gentle demeanor.
