Beware of the Side Effects! - Los Angeles, CA

I had my abdomen area done on 1/18/11. The procedure itself was mildly uncomfortable for a few minutes at the beginning. I found it very painful when the cup was removed and the area looked like a stick of butter and needed to thaw. I am now eight days after the procedure and continue to have itching, numbness and general discomfort in the area. I understand the numbness may take a month to go away. I may be very happy in 6 to 8 weeks when I see the effects, but for now I am uncomfortable, with a stiff fatty area on my stomach, unable to sleep with the itching and wishing I had not done it.

Wanted to report that after two weeks, the itching and numbness are subsiding. Also wanted to indicate that I was treated at a new business that was having a sale on the procedure. I believe the sale is over and that it normally costs $1500.

The good news is that I think the treatment works. I am two months post procedure and my stomach is flatter. I am considering doing it again on a different area. Knowing that the numbness is not permanent and that the itching has to be endured for two weeks before dissipating will allow me to make an informed decision. Perhaps there is a wide range of sensitivities to the treatment and therefore I was unprepared for the unpleasant two plus weeks post procedure.
Name not provided

The nurse who did my procedure did not fully disclose the potential side effects and how long they would last.
