I Would Not Recommend Liposonix - Charlotte, NC

I had Liposonix August 1st on my arms and inner thighs. I had reservations to start with because all I could find in the literature and on the internet was related to the abdomen. Well it is now nearly at the 12 week mark and no visible improvement. Personally - Definitely not worth the $5500 I spent.

I have scoured the internet searching for ONE successful case of Liposonix on saddlebags. I never found it, yet I paid for Liposonix on outer thigh anyway, thinking I would be the exception. 6 weeks post, I still have enough pain in the area to prevent me from running, and there is no measurable improvement. I still have visible lipodystrophy. If ANYBODY out there has seen before/after pics of successful liposonix on thighs, please POST. Otherwise, let's please get the word out that this procedure is not effective on saddlebags, so other hopeful women won't harm themselves physically/financially doing this.

Hi really me, Too be honest you will probably not find photos on that area because the FDA has not approved liposonix for treatment on thighs. I would question someone even doing this with the current hand piece on the market because of the depth and the size of the transducer was not made for these areas. I hope that you are up and running again soon.

I'm surprised that the doctor even did those areas. The Liposonix has not been approved for those particular sites by the FDA.

Hi there, welcome and thanks for sharing your journey with us. I'm sorry you didn't get the results you were looking for. Have you had a follow-up with your doctor yet, to talk about your results?

yes I did. He seems to think I will start to see changes at the 12 -16 week mark. He seemed unconcerned. For me the verdict is out. We'll see. Marketing as a plastic surgical procedure and spending the amount of money; you expect to see results. I don't even have measurable results.

I have read that results for these types of procedures can take up to 6 months to show. Hopefully you won't have to wait that long and your results will start showing soon! If you don't get the results you're looking for, will you be going for a revision or are you done with this procedure?
