Just Had It Done - Tucson, AZ

I just had my inner thighs done this morning....

I just had my inner thighs done this morning. Inner thighs are a little more work to get the right position because of the size of the tip and the awkward body position with it being between the legs. It was not painful at all. I don't know if I would even go so far as to call it uncomfortable. It was definitely cold and lots of suction but it was not bad at all. I read magazines and listened to my ipod. The worst part was my leg that wasn't being treated at the time falling asleep and the pain in the hips and knees from being on one position for so long. But even that was fine.

The techs were great as they always are at my Drs. office. They made sure I was comfortable, checked on me often and were very careful and detailed when making sure they got the device positioned correctly.

Immediately after the procedure, my thighs were very cold and the skin a little tender. It was sort of like how your checks might feel after being out on a freezing, blustery wind. One thigh is still a little raw but I put semi-tight jeans on right after the procedure and have been fine.

I also have a little bit of pinpoint bruising that I am expecting will go away soon. I bruise very easily so I will not be suprised if the bruising becomes a bit more pronounced before going away. I also feel like my thighs are a few inches bigger right now just because they still feel a little suctioned.

No numbness. No pain. I am so excited to see the results in a month or two.

Oh, my stats...I am at my happy weight and am pretty solid. Just about every bit of my body fat is on my inner thighs. I thought my outer thighs were a bit fatty too and was planning on doing that area also but the doctor said I did not have enough fat there for the machine to work. I will post measurements and try to post before and after pictures in a few weeks.

It has been just over 2 weeks since my procedure....

It has been just over 2 weeks since my procedure. A few days after my procedure my inner thighs remained a bit numb. The surface skin was not numb, but the tissue underneath was. A few days after, my left thigh got a little itchy and I had little sharp twinges every once in a while. Nothing big or painful, just enough to make the area come to mind. This lasted about a week.

I now feel absolutely no effects from the procedure. I have already seen results. I measured my thighs just before my procedure. I have lost a full 1/2 inch in my left thigh but only a negligible amount in my right thigh. I measured many, many times because I could not believe I lost inches so quickly. I am pretty skeptical in general but have no doubt my thighs are already smaller. I have had 2 friends comment (without me telling them I was seeing results).

Full results are expected 6-8 weeks after the procedure so I am hoping to see more reduction, especially in the right side. I do feel a little lopsided right now because my right thigh has always been larger than my left and now it looks even larger because I have not experienced the reduction in it yet like I have I the left. I am really excited to see the final results.
