I am 5'7" and fluctuate between 136-140lbs. I have always worked out and for the most part eat pretty healthy. Like other reviewers, I have hated my cellulite for years. I will wear nothing but board shorts to the pool or beach and my cellulite is still exposed because it goes down to my knees. Honestly, I really don't care if i ever wear a "normal" swimsuit again. I just want to wear my board shorts and not be embarrassed! I also play tennis so i have to wear a short skirt. Trust me though, i search high and low looking for "longer length" skirts and they are still not long enough!! I also have to wear biker shorts underneath because the "lumpiness" shows through if I don't. Needless to say, when I heard about Cellulaze (which was only about 3 weeks ago) I was on the phone making an appointment for a consultation. I don't think I even needed a consultation- I knew I wanted it. I lucked out and received a pretty nice discount since I was willing to have the procedure in the next six days. They had just had a cancellation. I was thrilled until I found this site and started reading about the recovery time. Of course this was two days before the procedure. I really got nervous because I have a trip to Florida scheduled for the end of June. I don't want to be bruised and swollen in my board shorts. :). It was too late to cancel and truthfully, I didn't want to. I have hated this cheese on my legs for too long. I just want it to work. I don't expect the cellulite to be totally gone but I would love to have it 50-70% better.
The procedure itself was not bad. I have read other posts that described it as painful but for me there was a little discomfort during the numbing process but not bad at all. I was fairly comfortable the rest of the day and night. The worst part was the swelling and my bandages under the garment -it got really tight. At the 24 hour mark, I was able to take off the bandages and shower. I had hardly any leaking and no pain so far. I have taken two Tylenol today and that's it. My legs are still fairly numb though. I went in for the follow-up today and was told I would be a lot more sore tomorrow and a few days after. I am already bruised pretty badly on the back of my legs but the fronts are bad yet.
I had the fronts of my thighs done down to my knees and the backs of my legs down to my knees. I also had the saddle bags done. I am supposed to wear the garment for three weeks 24/7. No working out for two weeks. I hope to be playing tennis in three weeks but from some of the posts...maybe not.
It's now day 5. I have been a little sore but...

I definitely want to echo what another reviewer mentioned...Make sure you know exactly what areas are being treated. I assumed the top fronts of my thighs would be treated but they weren't. I am disappointed since i have a couple of lumps there that show through lighter colored tennis skirts.
Day 10- The bruises are so much better. I bet...
