MY CELLULAZE JOURNEY- Charlotte, NC

I have been to a few consults and after much thought I have decided on Dr. Bednar in Charlotte, NC. I strongly feel that this doctor will be the best to perform the cellulaze procedure. I felt comfortable with him and his staff, and he is very experienced. Pricing is a big factor for me (after experience) and Dr. Bednar has fair prices. I was really turned off from another Dr. that claimed to be running a promotion of 20% off cellulaze. So I drove 6 hours round trip, paid 150 consult fee just to get there to wait over an hour and a half after my appointment time. I was then very dissappointed to find out that there promotion was only a marketing ploy. They increased the regular price, and then claimed to give 20% off. So there was no actual savings. I know this because i have got 3 other consults ( for free) and there prices were all similiar, and no where near this doctor's price. Then on top of that, they tacked in a $2,100 " surgery facility fee". I GOT OUT OF THAT OFFICE AS SOON AS I COULD. My consult was with Dr. Kortesis of "HUNSTAND KORTESIS CENTER" in Huntersville, NC - right outside of Charlotte. I would not waste my time, money or gas attempting to get services from them, because you will over-pay and wait a ridiculous waiting time! I will b getting Cellulaze on my buttocks and upper outer thigh and hip area. I will be paying $ 6,650 for everything. THE HUNSTAD KORTESIS CENTER WANTED $10,000! and that included there "20%off promotion credit." I will post an update on this review once my procedure is done.

TODAY WAS THE DAY! I did it! I had the cellulaze procedure at 9:00 am this morning. I am feeling great at the moment. I have only had a minimal need for the pain meds. My doctor and his staff were great! They provided a very pleasant and comfortable environment. I will be posting a little more details about my experience(s) tommorow and thereafter. *I'm so excited!!!!*

I woke up this morning feeing great! I still have practically no pain. I can say the compression garment is a little irritating and is starting to itch, but considering all factors, I think that it is well worth a little itching here and there. I have no need for my pain meds today, and I am very happy with my recovery process thus far!

10 weeks post-procedure

It has been 10 weeks since I had the procedure done. I have no more bruising, and the sensitivity to the treated areas is almost completely gone. I must admit, at about week 8, I was starting to get discouraged because I was not noticing any improvement. However, after looking in the mirror this week, I AM STARTING TO NOTICE AN IMPROVEMENT. I still have 2 weeks before reaching the 3 month mark, which is when I was told that maximum results would start to be seen. Between 3-6 months was the time frame I was given from my Doctor. I am confident that the improvement will continue, and I will post pictures n a few more weeks.
