I have had two treatments on my upper abdomen. The second treatment was 2 weeks ago. I find the initial attachment hurts and then numbs due to the cold. It is uncomfortable when they remove the suction and it looks like a piece of salmon. Let them massage the area. The last two days have been sharp pains in the area. I remember this from the first time. It will go away, and I did not find it debilitating (much better than smartlipo!!-not recommended ever). Anyway, I know it is worth it. There was a definitive improvement the first time, but I wanted more. The upper 'shelf' of my abdomen is stubborn. I am a prime candidate for a full tummy-tuck, but due to money and lack of recovery time available to me, I am taking these short cuts. I think it is worth it and I muscle through the discomfort and drink lots of water. I find stretching helps. Remember, it is the fat cells dying off. Jane.

I do want to mention, I went on the 21 Day Sugar Detox (Google it, I recommend it highly), and I continue to remain on it after 1 year. It makes me think twice about eating anything with sugar, sugar alcohols, corn syrup, or grains. Basically, I enjoy free range/grass fed meats and veggies. I hope you all check it out. Remember, we are 80% of what we put in our mouths. I lost SO much weight and many inches, but have lessened my workouts. Previous to eating correctly, I was working out 5 to 6 days a week at Crossfit, Zumba, and running. I lost little to no inches until I became mindful of what was going in my mouth. There is no panacea at the plastic surgeons' office.

Dr. Moradi and the whole staff are so wonderful. They make me feel like their only patient; even though their office is busy. I never feel like they are shaming me or condescending.
