I ended up having my abdominals and flanks done, and boy was it worth it! Only two weeks after the surgery I am noticing a flat belly, and much trimmer sides. There are even signs of my abdominals which I haven't seen since college. It was a fantastic procedure to get rid of the love handles that had built up over the past few years.
I had already changed my diet several months ago, and started working back in cardio. There's a slight time period after the surgery that you're not allowed to work out, so I'll be picking up my work out habits in the next week. I believe getting rid of my love handles will really make my exercise so much more effective, and I'll be able to see results sooner from all of the hard work.
If anyone asked me if I would do it again, I would say 'Absolutely!'.
