I am 5'6" and weigh 132lbs. The truth is I do not have a LOT of excess weight...I am doing this procedure with the intention of sculpting my body to look better. (ie - no loose skin at the waist when I throw on my jeans!)
When I was in my 20's I weighed aprox 190lbs and lost most of my weight thru fitness and diet - changed my life style. 4 yrs ago, I gave birth to my daughter - so again, there was a dramatic weight change.
I have found that no matter how hard I work out, I have not been able to lose or tighten areas in my stomach and inner thighs. I have a lot of loose skin especially in my thigh area that drives me crazy.
Dr. Castor did mention to me that this procedure may not fix the loose skin in my thighs, but it certainly won't make the problem any worse. I decided to do this procedure because I have worked hard on my body and I deserve for it to look it's best. Since I can't fix this in the gym - I decided to try this!
I will be doing my thighs; stomach and flanks. My appointment is on Friday - and I am a bit nervous about pain although typically I tolerate pain well. I am praying i will see significant results. i am worried about my recovery time - i am not the type of person that can stay put or rest for very long - i am counting on being up and about in a few days post. My husband says he can handle everything including the care of our 4 yr old for a couple of days so that I rest....we'll see!!
If there is anyone our there who has gotten this done that feels that they were not necessarily overweight before but needed "sculpting" - please contact me if you are willing to share your results.
I will post before shots soon.
