Thank you for taking the time to post all that you have. I just went to my surgeon to discuss lipo and he told me about this. I am really considering it. I work out 5 days a week and there are fat cells that just dont want to go away unless I basically keep my calorie intake at 1200 calories which is really hard to do. I am 39 and have the build up on my flanks and a bit on my belly. I was setting aside 10K so my estimate for $2500 is a steal in my eyes. So did you really see a difference in your clothes size. I fluctuate an 1' to 1/2" throughout the year so I am really excited to do this...I just was surprised that so many people actually were as swollen afterwards....it still seems like downtime...maybe 2-3 weeks? Should I do it...I need encouragement!!!!
