I am 5'8" and 110 lbs. In my late teens and through my twenties, I was a swimsuit model. Last year, I was asked to do a "Women in their 40's," calendar. Despite what you have just read, I have also have had cellulite throughout my adult life, worsening over time. I have never dieted, eat right, workout regularly, tried every lotion/potion, and every spa remedy from Endermologie to Velashape. Although the last two noted definitely provide a temporary benefit, NOTHING has truly helped. I have literally worn a cover up on the beach as long as I can remember. I live in Florida and NEVER wear shorts. And then came Cellulaze.
One cannot help but be negative after all of the other "solutions," but when the initial reviews were good, I could not wait to give it a try.
I was a part of the trials prior to FDA approval, I will not note the office that I used because I had a less than positive experience both in general and in terms of how they handle business. That was three months ago,
Deespite my feelings regarding the first doctor's office, the transformation of my lateral thigh area is literally astounding. Not only has the rippling effect of the cellulite essentially disappeared, the skin on that area of my body looks as if it is lifted. The thickening that was promised in the write ups gets better and better each day, even in the offensive lights of changing rooms.
All this being said, I was so elated by my results, I decided to do my anterior thighs as well as part of my tush. My first go around, I was wide awake under local anesthetic. I was told it would not be "that bad," which I believe to gravely underplay the actuality of the process. I would highly recommend sedation if you consider this procedure, particularly if doing anything beyond a small area.
This go around, I did considerable research. After reading solid, positive feedback, I contacted the office of Darryl Blinski in Miami. Prior to my visit, I spoke with the charming and knowledgable Dr. Blinski himself. He took the time to hear my history, my concerns, and afforded me the time I needed to speak in advance of my appointment. After several contacts presurgical interactions, I arrived yesterday for my scheduled appointment. Being at Dr. Blinski's office is like arriving at a family members house. Many staff members have been there for years, including his surgical coordinator, Vivian, who has worked for Dr. Blinski for 31 years. This group is a combination of professional and warm...not something you find very often. The entire staff is there to support you through the process. It is all I cannot emphasize enough how wonderful Dr. Blinski is.
Because I had sedation, I stayed in the Miami area overnight. One of Dr. B's nurses accompanied me to my hotel room, staying with me to make sure all was as it should be. I was grateful that she was there, but more important to emphasize is that I felt no after effects from the sedation or the procedure. I felt basically normal and ready to go.
Today, I returned to my part of Florida. Although I am following doctor's orders and taking it easy, I feel great. I am not at all sore. If I am to bruise, it has not surfaced as of yet.
Early next week, I will upload my before photos and keep updating my progress. Ladies, I do not work for Cynosure and I am not in any way to benefit from my positive affirmations of Cellulaze. I say that if you are as bothered by Cellulite and skin that is not as tight as it once was, run don't walk to have this done. Please contact me if I can help you in any way.
I am one week and two days post surgery. Again,...

One side effect of the procedure that I have noticed both my first go round and this one is that the treated area goes through an extended period of numbness. That is not say that I have pain. Rather, the treated area almost feels anesthetized to the touch. My first time having the procedure, this literally took about two months to pass. I really was not bothered by it, because I could actually tell exactly what areas were worked on and that something was happening.
I am still awaiting my photos from my doctors office, and cannot wait to post them.
