I am about 115 and 5'1, I work out at least 4 times a week but I couldn't get rid of my love handles or lower stomach fat.

I had my lower abdomen and flanks done today. The procedure was fairly quick and not very painful, I was very swollen and numb when I left, but as the day progressed I've noticed that it is a lot better. I have not had a lot of drainage or pain and I hope it stays the same way as I am planning to go to work tomorrow. I can see the difference on my flanks for sure.

It's only been 2 days and I feel great! The pain was very minimal, I had little to drainage and I can fit on my regular clothes with no problems.

I am wearing the compression garment 24 hours a day. This morning, when I took it off to shower, I was able to see my flat stomach! No pouch! One of my flanks is more inflamed than the other one which has me a little worried since IDK if it will stay like this!

For the most part I am pleased with the results after only 2 days... I must be one of the lucky ones that heals quickly and I can't wait to see how I will look after 1 month, 2 and so forth...

Thanks for sharing your story so far. Swelling is definitely normal at this stage. Is the inflamed flank the same side that you sleep on, by any chance?

Yes, that is the side I sleep on. It still feels uneven after almost a month but I will wait until my 2 month appointment to bring it up to the Dr. Thanks!

How many procedures did you do? And how long was each procedure?
