I am 5-5, 126lbs and work out on a regular basis: weights, running, etc... But genetically, I always carried weight on my thighs and butt. I finally decided to have liposuction of my whole thighs after careful review and consideration. It was one of the best decisions I have ever made.
I have ZERO regrets. My doctor was fantastic, and he did an excellent job, but I did pay more than other physician's quotes. My thighs are slim now and I can see the muscle that I work hard to build. I had it done 8/1/2011, and I ran in a half-marathon 10/20/11.
I was sore for 4-6 wks and really could not exercise during that time period. I had the procedure done on a Monday, and went back to work Thursday. My legs still have some numbness in areas, but this is normal and is improving with time. I hope you all have a wonderful outcome and experience similar to mine.
