Bit the Bullet and Just Praying I Get Results - East Syracuse, NY

After attending an open house and having a consultation I had my upper and lower abs done on 6/23/12 and BOTH with the large device. I am wide and chose to try and suck more of my side in using it since the tech was amazed that I don't have any love handles. Alittle background on me...I'm 40, 5"3" tops and currently weight 133.5. I have lost over 50 ponds over the last year or so and after 2 kids and both being sections my stomach STILL made me look 3 months pregnant no matter what I did. After researching this I decided it was worth a try. I had saved for a tuck but with young kids and the down time it wouldn't be possible for a couple of years. The open house gave me a 10% discount and I paid 2700.00 for 2 treatments with the large applicator for each.
My experience... I had the procedure done in Syracuse by a dermatologist hat has been working with the technology for about 2 years now. Although she figured I would need 2 treatments on my lower abs, she said I was the kind of candidate that she liked and that it should work well for me. The procedure itself was a breeze. Theresa was wonderful and the only pain I had was litteraly 60 seconds when first put on my upper abs since it was close to my ribs. The massage after did not hurt at all and was the strangest sensation I have ever felt in my life! I left the office after 2 house feeling numb and of course swollen but that was it. I went walking, grocery shopping, and did housework. Slept fine and had no pain.
Day 2 I went to work at my desk job, sat for 8 hours without any problem and went to the gym for an hour of moderate cardio. Although it felt numbish and "jiggly" again there was no pain or problems. Made dinner, played with the dog and slept fine. Yes it is a bit tender if I push on it or bump into things and yes I am wearing my old "fatty pants" so it's not cutting into the swelling but it doesn't feel like anything other than that I over did my abs a bit at the gym. Again today I am at work without any problems and I plan og going to the gym again after work. Going to do a bit of weight but probably stay away from ab machines. My tech didn't say anything about any special after care but I am trying to keep active and keep my fluids up. Being swollen is REALLY messing with me emotionally though. What if it doesn't go away? What if it doesn't work or worse yet look worse? Needless to say there's no answers right now. All I can do is be happy that so far I'm not having any side effects. Next few days will tell for sure. A small part of me wonders if that means I won't get any results... was it not done right even though she said my draaw was as good as she could ever ask for???
Time will telol and I'll update as I go. I purposely did not take before pics or measure at home (although they have pics of course). Otherwise I'd be even more neurotic and I'm going to go my the way I feel which at the moment is liek a BEACHED WHALE lol!
Keeping everything I have crossed... alll I can for now!
OK so here we are at day 5...I am really feeling...

I didn't measure or take pictures before hoping that it would make me less anxious. I am now really regretting that decission. It would be nice to be able to prove how much bigger I am.... I hate feeling more depressed than when I started. It's embarassing and I don't go around people more than I have to since everyone will ask if I have gained weight :-(
Well it has been 3 weeks... I get up after a good...

Maybe I was just still too heavy for this. Have been good on the same diet I have been on a year and a half and keeping up the exercise so not sure. I'll give it a few more weeks before I change to "Not Worth It"
OK so it's been a month since I di my upper and...

If things continue on this path I may do another treatment but not sure if I can afford to do both with the big applicator again. Time will tell. I really hope she will give me a copy of my before and afters in Sept. I'll take my own afters but never took before. People aren't really seeing it because I hid that area but now I am wearing shirts that are a little more fitted and that is when I see the difference. This was about ME and MY SELF CONFIDENCE but I'll love it if I can show them the pis and why I hid it :-). Things are looking up, hope it continues!
Great results! I didn't take a before or...
