I have been plagued by genetically induced cellulite since what feels like the day I was born with a goal of one day feeling comfortable in a bikini. I am 26 and active and although I understand the structure of cellulite I still don't understand why a young, active person should have it (that is me being stubborn). Anyway, that being said, I received a breast augmentation 4 months ago as that was the other area where I was short handed. While I was in for my follow up I zoned in on the brochure for Cellulaze. My doctor discussed the pro's and con's and long story short I decided to move forward with the procedure.

My procedure took place on 11/16/12 and I had the Cellulaze on my back and lateral thighs as well as my buttocks. The procedure lasted 2.5 hours under local. After I got home I took a nap and caught up on some paper work. Although my doctor had warned me of potential "leakage" and to sit on puppy pads I had zero of this. I also did not have to take any pain killers he prescribed as although I was soar it was not painful to the point of pain killers. Anyway, I drank a lot of water and laid low through the weekend - by Monday I was back to work (did procedure Friday morning). Today I had my two week follow up - although currently there is not much change I am hopeful for the months to come. Few notes: 1) The most annoying part of this procedure to date is the 24 hour spandex 2) To minimize any scaring my doctor stitched the incisions 3) I had major bruising but all was gone 12 days later 4) These pictures are extremely humiliating but this site helped me make my decision to move forward and I am hopeful I can help other desperate women to do the same 5) No more surgeries for me as from here on out I am counting on diet and exercise to improve additional areas I am uncomfortable with - plus I am hoping to maximize my cellulaze results!

I am a little over 6 weeks since my procedure and I am starting to see some results - back thighs are still a little numb but nothing too uncomfortable and every day gets better. I had my 6 week follow up with Dr. Gartner and he was pleased with my results thus far. I no longer have to wear the spandex which is fabulous and with the new year on it's way hopefully I can get back into my exercise regime. Excited to see continued improvement and will follow up with another picture in a month. Good luck to everyone out there!!
