I'm a fit 40 year old female who has never had children. I work out 5-6 days a week with weights and cardio. Though I'm in shape, over the years I've started to get a few problem areas around my stomach and love handles/back area. I was never opposed to having traditional liposuction. Yet, my problem areas are just a tiny bit of excess fat that's stubborn and has not gone away with diet and exercise. I didn't want to lose inches or pounds, I just wanted these small areas fixed and liposuction seemed a bit extreme. I started out doing my lower abdomen, and at my second visit I was suppose to have my love handle done. Unfortunately, when I came in to do the back area, they could not get the machine on me (mainly because I have just a small amount of fat and the head of the machine was too big for the area). Therefore, I ended up just having my upper stomach done as well. The procedure itself was uncomfortable, but never painful. After I left, I was bruised and became a bit swollen. I had some soreness, and my stomach was tender to the touch. Yet, I was still able to do my usual daily activities and the side effects subsided within a few days. It's been a few weeks now, and I'm trilled with how my stomach looks!!! I have definition that I've never had before. I do feel that the procedure was very expensive. Yet, I had no stitches, no down time, no pain, and now have no scars to deal with. My stomach is completely flat! I just wish they had a smaller attachment that could be used in other areas, because I would do it in a snap! I can see why the procedure is not recommended for people who have a lot of excess fat. The results are not very dramatic, but when you don't have a lot to get rid of, the results feel HUGE!
