Why haven't I healed yet and will the pain ever go away? Also, when will I start seeing any results?

I received the ThermiTight treatment 6 weeks ago. I was extremely swollen barely mobile from the procedure. 5 days later the pain was so intense I actually blacked out while driving. I can even have my stomach touched without wanting to cry. The skin is still extremely saggy, and does not look any different. I have not been myself since the procedure. Can't workout or tie my shoes. I'm 5'2 108 pounds and was very fit and healthy prior to treatment.

My patients do not normally feel this type of discomfort with treatment. I suggest speaking to your physician about the pain you're experiencing.  Best, Dr. Emer.
