My experience with Liposonix
The day of the procedure I was pretty excited and anxious to start the process of getting rid of my belly fat and love handles, also know as abdomen fat and flanks!
First I had my pictures taken so we could later see the before and after results. Next , my abdomen and flanks were marked up with a marker.
I then laid down on the exam bed and was made comfortable. I had blankets to keep me warm and a squeeze ball for the zingers, which I will later explain.
The treatment began first with my abdomen. It took about 45 mins in total for my belly and 45 mins total for my flanks. The overall experience felt like static electricity. I would even explain it as a sparkler. Every few seconds to minutes there were shocks referred to as zingers. The zingers were pretty uncomfortable. Sometimes the pain even jumped up to an 8! But overall the pain level was at a 4. That may sound like a lot of pain but I did not take any Valium or xanax, and I did not have any ice to numb up the area which I have seen helps a lot.
Once the proceedure was done there was no pain, but there was some slight soreness.
Day#2 I woke up feeling great! The soreness was a little bit more but was not too bad at all
Day#3 I started bruising which was pretty intense but to be expected. Still minimal soreness.
Day #4 Bruising was at the worst this day. I wanted to go running but when I ran I felt pretty sore because my abdomen would giggle so I decided to get a compression exercise belt from Walmart. I then went running and had no problem.
At 2 weeks my bruising had just about totally disappeared. If i pushed real hard on the areas I had treated I would feel some soreness.
I am now at the month mark and I a surprised to say that I am already beginning to see results which is way sooner than anticipated because results are to be seen between 2-3months! I am very happy so far. Today we took pictures to compare and others as well have seen results. Now on to treat my bra pads, and inner thighs ;)

My Doctor: Timothy Mountcastle, MD
Dr. Mountcastle took his time with me during my initial consultation. He showed me before and after pictures and gave me realistic expectations of what results i was going to have. The nurses were very comforting during the procedure and the front staff was exceptional!
