Went to local fig office, very 'posh' signed up far too quick because they led me to believe that if I was not completely satisfied or had any medical issues with the procedure that I would get a full money back refund. Told me to sign, which ormally I am pretty good about reading the small print, but because they told me that all I needed was a doctors letter if I experienced any problems, I went ahead. Oh my gosh. it was one of the worst thing I could have imagined!! My first appointment was injections (about 14 or them in my lower abdomen, (oh and by the way they said I was a perfect candidate, not being overweight as such, just needed some help around the middle, lower/upper abs and love handles). Within minutes after the injections I had the most intense burning, within 30 minutes red welts all over the injection site, within 2 hours, I looked like I was about 7 months pregnant, and the pain was horrific, they gave me tylenol, didn't touch it!! It took 5 days for the swelling to go down, I had to take 2 days off work, couldn't fit into my clothes and nausea and migraine headaches, something I have not sufferred with before. The injection sites were painful and itching all at the same time. 2 weeks after the treatment I still fel so uncomfortable, I went in for consultations and they told me that this was normal, which is strange as their publicity states minimal pain, slight swelling and no downtime...really....I agreed to do the 2nd course of injections, this time to lower and upper abs and love handles, 40cc of stuff injected. I went straight to the grocery store, bought 3 bags of frozen peas, unzipped my jeans and placed them on my ballooning and painfull mid section and again could not go to work for 2 days. Went to see my doctor, go a letter from him stating my allergic reaction and that I should not receive any further treatment. Now they tell me that they will not refund my $6000.00, yes folks, 6K. Actually it is with their 'medical review board' what in goodness name is that, they aren't even FDA approved!! I may get a refund in 60-90 days. They are con merchants. Please beware, it is an awful procedure. To add insult to injury, I have seen any change in my shape at all
