I'm getting my procedure done with Dr David Powell Tomorrow, I'm a little anxious/nervous about the procedure. I'm not overweight, and I do both weight training and cardio training arund 4-5 times a week. My diet is fairly clean, consisting of mainly protein, good carbs and vegies. Despite the hard effort to lose my tummy fat and the stubborn fat in the thigh areas, it just doesn't seem to go away. For as long as I can remember, I've always had a protruding belly, so I look eagerly for something to solve my issue. I've been researching on and off for the past year and came across lipodissolve. The results seem to be 50/50 from person to person and depending on which country and which doctor.
Dr David Powell had been recommended on another review by someone named "South Melbourne" and she said she was happy with her results. Since it seems to be a procedure that alot of people are looking into, i thought I would start doing reviews from day 1. I'll post up a photo tonight so you guys can see the before and then compare it with the afters. Wish me luck!

It's now 4.5 weeks after the treatment, you can still feel a little pain if you touched it deep enough into the area" and to be very honest. As much as I wish I had some sort of results... I haven't. And if you told the doctor I'm sure he'd tell you something like "Well it helps the process along if you did some exercise and ate lean and minimal carbs. So she mightn't have stuck to a clean diet with healthy regular exercise". Well let me clear that up for you.
I exercise, not just go for a walk or do a few sit ups a night. I have a personal trainer twice a week and train on my own atleast 2 to 3 times on alternate days.. My meals consists of Salads with minimal dressing, any sort of lean protein, mainly egg, fish and chicken and on very rare occasions (when i mean rare, i mean like once every 2 weeks) some sort of red meat. I drink only water and tea, and snack on nuts and fruit and I have maybe 1/4 of a cup of cooked brown rice with my lunch mon-fri. On weekends I have a few cheat meals.
And even though they give you an appetite suppressant after the treatment, I never used it because I felt my appetite dropped since the procedure anyway.
And what makes me wonder is, alot of people who go and get the procedure done are normally not very active people, so OF COURSE if they started exercising and eating a little leaner, changing up their diet a little would help them lose weight. Whether its from the procedure or not, it's actually inevitable. People with higher body fat content loses weight much quicker than people with a lower body fat content. Also remember, i went there to lose the last bits of fat that i can't seem to get rid of with exercise and diet and even that tiny little amount isn't really coming off after the procedure. Maybe I need more than 1 procedure? However, Dr Powell insisted that I only had very minimal to lose so I only need to undergo 1 procedure..
So far, looking at my results, I would say its not really worth $750.00 for the 1 procedure. But alot of people have reported they only started seeing results after 6 - 8 weeks from the day of treatment. So for now, I would stick to undecided and give them the benefit of the doubt.
I want to make this review as real and as raw as possible to help those who are considering this procedure, because I know I really needed it prior to getting the treatment done.
Hope this helps. I'll check in again in 1.5 weeks time =)
It has now been 2 months since the treatment....

I hope all this helped, and from now the only way that could help me is a really really clean diet and a really really strict exercise routine. Good luck with everyone else out there who are considering this treatment!
