Well, so far so good. I was very relieved during the procedure at the amount of pain...very, very little. Actually, when I felt a little pinch 2x's the doctor said to nurse "no, let's give her more anesthetic...she should not feel any pain". Dr Broader from Beleza Med Spa did my procedure and I would HIGHLY recommend him and his staff. They are all great.
I did experience a pretty substantial amount of pain the next few days, especially during the night (however, I do have chronic back problems so that probably added to it). The pain medication worked very well. Right now I am pretty swollen and have some bruising but I can already tell a big difference. I will post before and after pictures once I heal a little. They say in 3 weeks I should not have as much swelling. The main thing is to make sure you wear the medical undergarmant 24 hours a day. It's actully more comfortable thatn Spanx. I was tole that you can wear spanx after about a month but I am going to keep the med garment on as long as possible. Also, important to get the mesaages afterward's or have the nurse show you how to do it yourself.
Otherwise. so far so good
