I can definately see a change. You look much better! Sorry you are not happy. Maybe you don't notice as much of the change cause you look at yourself everyday. I heard that bloating can last a while. Keep positive!

Daro its interesting that you said you are not totally happy with your result. I'm in the same boat. I'm trying to stay positive when I still feel a bit chubby in the flanks and lower abdomen. I even work out about 4-5 days a week. But I still have to say that you still look fabulous whether you lose more or not.

wowee girl looking good. Great results!! Im still trying to figure out what method to use. real lipo or laser. Your bending pic looks great. I think over time like around 6 months your will be seeing your real result and your skin will just keep tighening on tummy.

Thanks for been there,make me feel really good;) About what method you use,I think you need to talk with doctors make sure your need and liposuction type match.please update and be strong!!

You really do look good. I think your change from before to now is good. I dont see the little pooch at all. How is it when you bend like in your first before pics. Thats where I am seeing a big difference on your afters. Thats the area I want to do to even me out with my flanks.
