I just had the procedure yesterday, so obviously it is too soon to determine. I plan to update weekly for the next 8-12 weeks with pictures.
I am currently 5'6" and 160 lbs and am dieting. I had them perform the procedure on my abdomen and flanks. I took the pain medication (two hydrocodone) approximately 60 minutes prior and the Valium 30 minutes prior (I took both about 15-30 minutes later than recommended as I was planning on driving myself). I was not overly anxious going in to the procedure.
I am not going to lie: that was painful. Traumatizingly so. I have had two tattoos, a tattoo removed, and given birth without medication and that hurt more than anything else I've done. I ended up crying throughout the entire procedure and was completely worn out when done. The technician who performed the procedure was amazing and wonderful and I have nothing but wonderful things to say about her. I am just saying that it really hurt. Like being completely and randomly stung by a wasp from the inside.
I will update weekly. Right now, 18 hours out, I am still sore. I did workout this morning and my workout was somewhat impaired by the procedure. Additionally, I am swollen (which I was told was likely). In no way am I complaining, but simply documenting of how I am feeling post procedure. I am looking forward to seeing the results.

The first several days my stomach had a LOT of swelling/edema. I could feel the fluid beneath the skin. It started to go away after a couple of days. Then, the bruising started to show, but it was less than I expected.
So far, I'm glad that I did this. I'm really hopeful that it will make a difference between needing spanx and not needing spanx when I wear a form fitting dress ;-)
I'll update weekly. Cheers!
