Hi everyone, I am 47 I have had 4 children, all born my c-section. There are several procedures I would like to get done, but my first is cellulaze. It was done on 11/20/2013. I had both butt cheeks and the backs of both thighs done. The procedure start to finish took approx 4 hours. I am now 10 days post op. The worst part of the procedure was the injecting of lidocain, epi and fluid. It was pretty rough but I made it thru. I was given a valium and phenergran an hour before the procedure. Some point during the procedure I was given another valium and a Lortab. There were occasional times during the procedure that I could feel the laser. He would stop and numb that area more. The pain was not intense tho. If I could do anything differently it woulda been taken more med at the beginning to sedate myself more. After the procedure I went home and slept good, no pain, still numb from the lidocain. Later that night I got up to go to the bathroom and noticed lots of drainage from the holes in my legs. This is supposed to happen. All the fluid they put in you is draining from these sites. I began to feel very weak and almost fainted. I had a follow up appt the next morning. Lots of bruising, but everything looked as it should. My Dr. prewarned me not to expect any results for 12 to 14 weeks. But, as you can see from my pictures that my results only 10 days out are already pretty amazing.

This photo was taken at 12 weeks post op. As you can see my skin appear more youthful. I do still have a little discoloration, but it is very mild and I feel I can hide it with a tan. Still feel some area's of numbness, but the feeling is coming back. I have no pain or anything. My doctor stated that improvement will still continue. I am very pleased with my results so far, and am ready to wear shorts with no embarrassment this summer. :)
