I'm in San Diego and I went to the only doctor who does it here. So far, he said he's done a handful (mostly his staff). I need the front, back, some of the side and half of my butt done. The gave me a quote of 11K (they said down from 15K). Is this completely ridiculous? I know I have a lot of areas, but still. I'm 5'7", 135 lbs. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
I also have a consult with Dr. Petti in Torrance and will be scheduling one with Dr. Springer soon.

I went to see a doctor here in San Diego, but it became apparent he had only done a handful of cases (mostly his staff) and was charging an exorbitant amount. I had a consult with Dr. Petti in Torrance, who was one of the doctors in the clinical trials and I felt confident in her ability, so I have my Cellulaze and some Smart Lipo for contouring scheduled for October 1st, so I can have some time to heal before Christmas (and so I can hopefully wear dresses or skirts above the knee for the first time in years!).
Dr. Petti will be doing the front above my knees, the back almost all the way down to my knees, the sides (which are a big lumpy post-lipo mess).
I'll keep everyone updated, and please don't hesitate to ask me any questions!

I'm wearing the foam pads on the front and back of my legs, making me look like I've gained 25lbs overnight, and the doctor wants me to wear them for two weeks! This is the part that sucks, because I can't really hide them. They even show under really baggy pants, skirts.
At any rate, I hope this works, since I haven't been able to wear shorts/skirts above my knees due to worsening cellulite above my knees. Forget about bathing suits! If I get a 50% improvement, I'll be happy. I'm 37, 5'7" 140lbs, work out regularly, but not maniacally.
Please let me know if you have any questions. I will update my review to worth it when I feel it was worth it. It's still too early to tell.
Hi! I'm almost three weeks out, and while I look...

My Doctor: Christine A. Petti, MD
She was in the clinical trials. No one in my area (San Diego) was experienced enough for me to feel comfortable. Her staff was great. She's very personable and meticulous, and I trusted her expertise.
