I had liposuction on my outer thigh (saddle bags) done almost 3 years ago. I am a fit, active mid 30's gal who could never get rid of my bags, no matter what my weight.
I researched the procedure for 2 years before finding "The Lipo King." I can not say enough about researching your doctor and the procedure itself. As the Dr. what size cannula he uses? It is worth the extra expense of traveling to find the best.
The procedure itself was very easy for me. I did have bruising for two weeks and numbness for over a year (not pain, just numb.) I hate to say it, but there really was NO pain. The results were immediate, however full healing and results truly takes 6 months to a year. I took short walks the first few days and 6 days after was teaching fitness classes. No one noticed, except for commenting that I must be working out hard.
This was one of the best gifts I have given myself and I would do it again. This is surgery! and there is always risks, even in the best of hands. Do your research and don't have unrealistic expectations. Liposuction did not rid me of my cellulite, just the big biscuit hanging on the side of my thigh.
