So Far I Am Not Impressed... - Reno, NV

- 20 May 2011
I got the procedure in February 2011- I have not had a check up by the doctor since then and am scheduled for a check up in June.
I did my research before making the decision to go with the doctor I chose. I used online reviews and investigated the procedure itself thoroughly. I was optimistic that it would benefit me.
I am 5'4/112 pounds. After reading up on lipotherme I recall that it is meant for people with problem areas so I figured that was perfect for me. I had lipotherme performed on my stomach, my waist, inner and outer thighs.
I was also talked into doing the SmoothShapes procedure (I think it was 8 sessions for $1,000) as well to improve the appearance of my skin on the inner and the outer thighs.
I followed the instructions in wearing the compression garment for two months. I am not fully satisfied with my results. The only part I am satisfied with is the waist - I feel that is the only place that she "removed my problem area."
She took a total of 2 pounds out of my whole body, from those four areas. My inner and outer thighs' texture did not improve, despite the procedure I paid for in recommendation of the doctor. My outer thighs have an uneven look to them, lumpy almost. I am leaning towards "NOT WORTH IT!!" so far.
