About 5 years ago, I lost 50 pounds. When I did, the remaining fat I had went further south on my abdomen. I was left with these two small bulges of fullness right at my bikini line. When I started contemplating lipo, I asked my friend for an opinion. She said that her office has started doing this procedure, and that I was a perfect candidate. Due to my age, amount of fat, skin elasticity, my fitness level, etc. they believe I will have great results. I was also really excited when I found out how affordable this treatment was, which helped make my decision.
They did two small cups, with maximum suction, to maximize the results. I took pictures throughout the process, because when I researched I didn't see many photos/video of the process, and I wasn't sure exactly what to expect. I was actually pleasantly surprised by how minimal my discomfort was during the procedure- I wound up even falling asleep! The massage was not as bad as I had read (I was pretty numb, so there was little pain).
I will post more follow up photos over the next few weeks.
