I'm 27 and have had (in my opinion) had relativley severe cellulite on my inner thighs right above my knees since the age of about 12. I have always been in good shape and even instruct spin classes. In the past 3 years I have put on some weight due to a hormonal imbalance and this made my cellulite even worse. It is such a major flaw in my eyes, that I refuse to wear anything that even goes 1/2 an inch above my knees. For years I have said - how is there no fix for cellulite? And if therre ever is one I am going to have to give it a try. Besides all the creams and potions I have tried I also gave VelaShape a try with ZERO results, so when I heard about Cellulaze I was a bit skeptical. I have since read all the reviews on this site and done research about how this procedure is done and I knew I had to give it a try. Also since I'm "going under the laser" I decided to also get Smart Lipo on my arms and back, in addition to doing my inner and outer thighs with the cellulaze. I'm excited and nervous to have this done, but I'm mostly worried that I will see no or very minimal result. After all these years of wishing and hoping for a fix I really hope this gives me the confidence I deserve when showing my legs.
I get my surgery in one week and I will upload before and after pics so my results can be monitored - FINGERS CROSSED this works....

Also, I see a lot of people asking about vitamins to assist with the healing process so I wanted to give you the regimine I'm on.
At the Dr's office they gave me (sold me) a vitamin called Cataplex A-C and I was told to take 2 tablets after a meal 3 times a day starting 2 weeks before surgery. I was also given a vile with Arnica Montana - they are tiny little guys and you aren't suposed to touch them since they will lose potency - I am to start those on Sunday (3 day's before the proceedure) I have to disolve 5 pellets in my mouth with a meal 3x's a day. I also bought Bromiline (pineapple extract) and Arnica gel which I was told to start after the surgery. The doctor also mentioned that taking Ester-C would be helpful for the healing process, but I feel like Im taking enough at this point :) - I hope that helps those of you who have questions.
Ok everyone...I got the procedure done...

My Doctor: John W. Decorato, MD
Dr. Decorato was great - he answered all my questions and explained everything as it was being done. Once I went home I had a few more questions and even though he was no longer in the office he called me within 10 mins to make sure I was feeling ok (I was in pain when I left) and to answer my questions. One of the days I went it I did wait a really long time, but my apointment was later in the day so I would say the earlier you go in the quicker you will be seen - otherwise be prepaired for a wait. The staff is all very sweet as well.
