Saddle Bags/cellulite - Lipodissolve
I had my first lipodissolve treatment to my saddle...
- 27 Sep 2008
I had my first lipodissolve treatment to my saddle bage area three days ago. The injections did not hurt, but I had swelling and was very sore for two days afterwards. Today I am no longer sore, but I still have several silver-dollar sized bruises - doesn't surprise me because I bruise easily.
I really liked my doctor. She was friendly and answered all of my questions. The staff was also very friendly. One of the girls working there had had lipodissolve injections to her chin the day before and she showed it to me and let me touch it - it was warm to the touch and she said that it was tender. The doctor had also had lipodissolve done to herself. When she first learned of lipodissolve she was skeptical and had the injections done on one side of belly and on one arm. She showed me her arms and I could immediately tell which arm had been injected.
I stood up while she did the injections. She injected a substance called collagenese into the pits of my cellulite and the lipodissolve into the fat areas of my cellulite. She explained the the collagenase breaks up the fibrous bands that pull on the skin and cause it to dimple and that that lipodissolve breaks up fat cells.
I was very thristy right after the treatment and for the next two days. I drink a lot of water typically, but I was really thirsty. My thighs also felt hot to the touch. I know that both the thirst and heat were caused by the inflammatory reaction. I was also very tired and I have slept more than usual. However, I was able to go to class the night of the treatment and have been able to do all of my daily activities, including taking long walks. I will start working out again today.
My thighs are tighter, but I am dissapointed that the cellulite dimples are still there. I am hoping that they will improve with time. Has anyone else out there who has had success with thighs and saddle bags? Will you please contact me with your experiences/results? I would love to know how long and how many treatments it took to see results?
I am having my second treatment done in two weeks. My advice to folks is to go to a physician for lipodissolve treaments. From what I've read most people who have had bad experiences went to expensive spas and paid three times as much to be treated by non-medically liscenced personel.
I will keep posting and hopefully will have good news to share. So far I think that the experience has been worth it.
Polite, caring, answered all my questions and did not act as though she was in a hurry. She had also done the procedure on herself. She talked to me throughout the procedure. I felt comfortable with her.
