i have been thinking about getting this proceure done for awhile now and finally did it after A LOT of research and reading reviews. I had it done yesterday (tuesday) on my lower stomach and love handles that i just couldn't get rid of since my 2nd pregnancy 3 years ago (i even did boot camp for several month with no change). I was very nervous after reading some of the reviews on here saying it was very painful, so this was my experience....
I went in for my consultation and took the before pictures, i decided i wanted to continue with the procedure so i made the appt. for a couple days later. On the day of the procedure the nurse took me back to the room and asked if i had any questions and gave me a gown and cozy socks to put on, when i was all ready she placed the cold cloth on my stomach(we did this area first) and warned me of the intense suction, when i was ready she turned it on and it was not half as bad as what i was expecting, i had no pain from it at all, i think it just felt like someone was pulling on my skin, it was uncomfortable for about 7 minutes then i was fine and just watched tv for the rest of the hour. Next was the love handles, she asked if i wanted to do them at one time or seperate, i chose together to save an hour. I layed on my stomach and she attached both of the applicators and sat for the hour, i was very comfortable and glad i did them at the same time. The massage afterwards was not bad for me, i was numb and could barely feel it, although the first few minutes after the massage when the skin starts to warm up felt uncomfortable, similar to the feeling when you are outside (in winter) and your fingers are really cold so you warm them under water. I do want to add one thing that i have not read on anyone elses reviews, during the last 5 minutes of the treatment the machine started pulsating in a way, it is kind of hard to explain, it just sucked harder for a second then went back to normal, it did this several times during the last 5 minutes, i hope that makes sense lol.
Today is Wednesday, the day after my procedure, and i only have alittle bit of discomfort. I slept fine last night, on my side most of the night with no discomfort. i am bruised on my sides but the sides are just fine with barely any discomfort or pain in them, it is my stomach that is alilttle uncomfortable when is touched. I am expecting for the pain to get worse in the next few days so i will try to post every few days. I also took before pictures that i will post in a couple weeks when i start seeing my results so they can be comparted to something (i hope i can be patient enough), i'm so excited and just can't wait :)

oh yeah one more little note. My doctor called on day 3 to make sure i didn't have any questions and to make sure i was doing ok. I thought that was awesome for them to take time and call there patients to make sure everthing was good. (they already had me set up a 3 month appointment before i left when i was done with the procedure)
It's been 2 weeks now!!! Ok so the...

i only gave the doctor bedside manner a 3 star because the day i could do the procedure the doctor was not in and i wanted to do it still, I would highly recommend this location, they were all friendly, answered all my questions, gave me free gifts and made sure i was comfortable in every way.
