I took Arnica Montana 2 wks before (to prevent bruising). I was given valium & pain meds before as well. I had my whole front done (upper/lower abs) & my back done (flanks too).

I am 40 yrs- (3 kids) 5'5 140 lbs. I work out a lot but wasn't able to get rid of my pooch or love handles. i did not have a lot of fat on my upper back & that is where it hurt the most. No other pain. Everything went well. I am wearing 2 compression garments. 1 full body/torso one & a velcro ab one. I only take off to shower.

I still take anica montana & some pain meds. I didn't anticipate that i would be this sore on day 3! It is difficult to get up/down off couch.

My hubby /doc/nurses noticed the results right away- i see it a lil bit. I can't wait to have it all tighten up more. I am wearing band-aids on most incisions (5). the 6th one is still oozing so i have a pad on it under garment. I told no one so my friends think i just threw my back out.... His nurse called me 3 times the next day to check on me & twice the 2nd day!

I would do it again. I will post before & after pic soon! :)

4 days later- i am finally able to bend over a bit to shave my legs!! still wearing 2 garments but they seem so tight- still swollen a lot & bruises are yellow & no bleeding which is all still normal. still taking arnica montana for bruising but no other meds.
Check up tomorrow. I don't notice much of a difference but my hubby does a lot- a few ppl asked if i have lost weight...

Added 6 wks pic. I have my check up today. I...

Added 6 wks pic.

I have my check up today. I still feel like i look lumpy & bumpy & not totally thrilled yet but i am impatient- he told me from the beginning it will take 2-4 mos to see my full results so i wait..... :)

They spent a lot of time explaining things & calling a lot to check on me after.
