Got the procedure done today. I feel great. The numbing part is pretty painful but after that i was dozing during the procedure. The drainage is pretty bad. I have already soaked my padding and there isnt much i can do till post op tommorow. Compression garment does not feel tight. Maybe i need a smaller one..i cant wait till tommoroe so i can get cleaned up and take a peek! I do have my own before pics ( not very good) so i will definitly post some pics when i am able to take afters. Plan onno pain right now. Just some slight throbbing in one side. I got the sides and back of thighs done. I dont expect to see emmediate improvement but if i can were a swimsuit and not have to walk backwards i'll be happy!

I have barely have any bruising which is great. I definitely recommend supplementing with Anica and bromelain. I do have quite a bit of swelling but hopefully that goes down soon. I took a look before I got in the shower and I still see dimples. I'm trying not to get depressed. I told myself not to expect instant results but there is still that irrational part that ones it gone now....staying optimistic as I'm only a day and a half post op.

Added some pics. Lighting is very forgiving...cellulite looks much worse when i move and outside. Happy with the amount of bruising. I was quite swollen 24 hours later but I already can feel the swelling going down. I have taken a walk everyday since the procedure to keep the blood flowing and plan to hit the gym Monday as I was told to wait 72 hours before exercising.Massaging my thighs every time I think about it. I am also massaging with a rolling pin...don't know if that's a good idea but I figure why not massage and smooth at the same time? Sounds like a good plan.. Today not very sore at all. The sorest part is on the parts of my thigh were there is less fat. The fattier parts don't hurt. Hope that's not a bad thing.

1 week post procedure and bruising appears to be going away. Still see cellulite. I feel like my upper right thigh was not treated as much as much left leg, the left leg was the first worked on...I don't know...Although there is differences in the length of time recommend for exercising I started back Monday (yesterday's dead lifts and tire pushes almost killed me) and it does appear that its helping my bruising. However , I am not in any pain, It feels a little weird at first but I can run, walk, skip and jump with no issues.Everyone is different, so I am not advocating jumping into to exercise before your specific surgeon advises.. I will wait the full three months before rating the procedure worth it or not. I don't know how long its supposed to take for a dimple to pop out but I hoped the band would be cut the dimple would just pop out. The evenness and skin laxity I can understand waiting for and giving time but the dimples?...I'm not a doctor so I will wait patiently before making judgement and take some more pics to post for everyone. I think after having this procedure done I feel grosser and fatter than ever. Been trying to lower my carbs this week so lots of chicken breast. I think the combination of lack of carbs, frustration from the thought of this procedure not working, planning a wedding for the end of July( get to go to my dress fitting today with my stupid compression garment on..) is got me feeling like I'm about to flip my cookie...till next week all. Have a good Memorial Day weekend!
