I am turning 40 this August and I have had cellulite on the back of my legs since I was a teenager! I am very active, I work out, and I eat healthy, but no matter what I do, I just can't get the back of my legs to look smooth. I started researching procedures that might help me and I sent a consultation request to Dr. Hensel's office. I got a response within 24 hours from Michele who spoke to me in length over the phone and then made an appt. for my consultation. At the consultation, Michele and Dr. Jack reviewed my case and suggested cellulaze as the answer to my specific problem areas. My biggest fear in going forward was that I wouldn't see enough of a result to make the procedure worth the money and the potential pain. They assured me I was a good candidate and that I should see dramatic results, so I proceeded to make my surgery appt. I was nervous the day of surgery, but the staff put me at ease and once the meds kicked in, I didn't feel a thing! After surgery, I was pretty bruised and swollen which is common according to the research I have done, but the pain after surgery was not as bad as I had expected. I didn't take any of the pain medicine that was prescribed.....only a few tylenol here and there. I went to work the next day....I was sore, but I was able to maneuver so that none of my co-workers could tell I had just had surgery the day before. The worst part was having to keep the garment on for three days without taking it off to shower and one of my incision holes weeped for about a week. On day three when I could finally take the garment off for the first time, I burst into tears at the sight of my legs! Not because they were swollen and bruised but because I could already see just three days after surgery that my legs were going to look much better once they healed. I could already see where they looked much smoother than before the surgery. It's now three weeks after my surgery and I continue to see improvements everyday. I am still a little bruised and swollen, but I know once I am back to normal, these legs are going to look fantastic!! Even though I can officially stop wearing the garment tomorrow, I plan to wear it for another week or two or until all of my swelling is gone. It's actually still more comfortable with it on.

I also had the Cool Sculpting procedure done to my upper and lower abdominal areas. I wasn't even really unhappy with my stomach but I do have a little bit of fat that has been stubborn and once I learned about Cool Sculpting, I wanted to try it too! Tonya is an excellent technician and took super care of me! The procedure had minimal discomfort and no down time at all afterwards. My stomach just felt numb for a few days. Tonya advised that it takes several months for the results of this procedure to start to show, but I swear I can already notice a reduction...especially my upper ab area!!

I am very thankful to Dr. Hensel and his wonderful staff!! I really appreciate the care and hospitality that their entire gang shows every time I walk through the doors!! They make me feel welcome, safe, and comfortable and I am very grateful for how they treat their customers. This was truly a scary decision for me to make but Michele and the rest of the staff made each step of the process hopeful and as enjoyable as possible!! I'm so glad I picked them to go on this transforming journey with and I can't wait to see my final results and the NEW ME!

Hey there, I really appreciate you sharing. This is something I have been thinking of doing for several months and am still contemplating. I have read so many mixed reviews here on real self and I still cannot decide Dr. Hensel is one of the doctors I am considering. Please keep us posted bc they say you really don't know what the results will be for 4-6 months. I'm interested in hearing more about your cool sculpting as time goes on. Best of luck and please continue to update us. : )
