I have decided to do it. I AM Going TO HAVE CELLULAZE!
After years of being in great physical shape, It has been very hard for me to see cellulite appear where I have never had it. Just the thought of going to the pool or beach is upsetting.
Seeing is believing:
Being an Aesthetician for Dr. Bednar Plastic Surgery has given me first hand knowledge of what these patients have experienced. The before and after affects of cellulaze are simply amazing and I want it.
Stay tuned as I have this procedure in the coming days.

Day One -post -op and feeling great!

I had Cellulaze, Saturday, June 23rd @ 9am.
Waking up from surgery, I felt no pain or nausea (which was a big concern for me).
They had provided me with medication to counter any of those concerns.

I left the office in a compression garment, which I am to wear for 3 days.
I feel very large and swollen in the garment, but that is expected.

At home I slept very comfortably, most of the day. I was able to just relax and watch television without the feeling pain and discomfort.
Saturday night, I slept like a baby (propt up with pillows)

We will be posting before and after pictures soon!

Day 2-I went into work to treat a few patients today so ---no medication--.
After getting home I knew I needed rest and a much needed shower.
For the first time, I pulled off the garment and then the dressings. The dressings or pads have adhesive so they stung a bit more than I thought. ( I'm a bit of a baby when it comes to this stuff).
I handwashed my garment and threw it in the dryer, showered and by the time I was out, my garment was ready to wear! I suggest doing this so you don't have to be out of it for very long. Take it from me, you want the support of the garment!
Looking in the mirror, I couldn't tell a difference yet from the surgery (feel swollen and tired) but my husband swears he already can see less cellulite ..TMI ;)
Rest is needed but all in all, it has been a very easy surgery thus far.

Day 12 I feel great! I can already see results...

Day 12 I feel great! I can already see results (smoother tone and texture on my outer thighs)
I do have soreness, simular to a heavy workout.

Correction to earlier blog-
I did say in a previous blog that I only had to wear my compression garment for 3 days and what I meant to say 3 weeks.
I am tired of wearing it but wouldn't think of taking it off for the sake of great results.

Back from a week's vacation at the beach! Great...

Back from a week's vacation at the beach! Great time. I do still feel a bit swollen and sore. This could be due to the fact that I was very active, riding bikes and walking the beach without my garment.
I feel like getting back into my regular workout schedule, as well.

I want to make sure you know that I am still sore...

I want to make sure you know that I am still sore and have prickly heat from the nerves healing. Usually, I feel this closer to the evening hours and when I'm fatigued. Not bad and nothing that requires meds. Gradually it is looking better. I workout, walk, lift weights and work my normal work week.
I just want to make it clear that the healing is happening and takes some time.
