Like many of you on here I have been dealing with my cellulite for about 8 years. I am 35 years old and prior service and when I got out of the Army I stop working out as much because I had to do it while in the Army. Not such a good idea... gain lots of weight. After loosing the weight I noticed that I had the cellulite. I had no idea how to deal with it, I used everything creams, pills etc. i was so glad to find out that there was something out there that would get rid of my cellulite with only one treatment. I am schduled for the cellulaze procedure on Monday the 16th at 8am. I will be posting my before and after pictures and posting progress pictures.

Hello its day six and I go back to the doctors on Tuesday July 24th to have the stitches taken out. I'm excited to have that done and continuing to heal. I looked at my legs the other day and the bruising is pretty bad but I knew what to expect with that. I have not experience any pain at all just soreness. But I am experiencing the pulling in the front of my thigs when I get up from a lying or sitting position and then as I walk it goes away. I'm looking forward to working out again and seeing results hopefully before my husband comes back home from Korea in December for Christmas.

Oh and there is no more draining ( thank God ).....

Day seven and everyday is better then the day...

Day seven and everyday is better then the day before. The bruising is not as bad as I thought took a better look today and also applied lotion for the first time since before the procedure. I'm seeing a little change in the appearance of the cellulite and my skin is so much smoother. I go back to the doctors tomorrow for the removal of my stitches and to see what the doctor says about the improvement. I will continue to keep everyone posted.... I have posted more pictures that I just took today for everyone to see the progress and the healing of the bruising.

Please I encourage you to ask me as many questions about the procedure as possible before you get it done if you haven't had it already.

Ok I had my appointment this morning to have my stitches taken out. Dr Kanter said that the bruising is going away nicely and that the results that I am seeing is superfical because of the swelling. He also said that in a couple of weeks when the swelling is gone that we should see then how well the procedure was. This is one more thing that I like about him, he doesn't try to make something seem better then they are and he does not give false hope. He says it will take time and I believe him.

He told me that I could start back working out next week ( tuesday) but he would like for me to wear either the compression garment or spanx during the workout. He told me to wear the compression grament for another two weeks. I have my next appointment on August 21 at 1pm, it would have been the week before but I have classes at work that I can not get out of ( gotta love the government) lol. I will keep everyone posted on this journey and will post more pictures on Sunday night when I return back home.

Ok I feel like I need to update my post with my recovery!! Today although everything is still going well... I noticed that as the numbing subsides the more sore I feel in the treated areas! Also I have noticed that my knees are really sore as well... I don't know what's up with that!! Lol.... Also I am now switching from the compression garment to the spanx( going back and fourth) they both feel really good on my skin and gives me the support that I need!! I also notice that when I get up from
a sitting or laying position I am having less pulling. And now I feel like scratching my legs and buttocks all the time now! I'm sure that is because of the healing that is taking place!! Lol... I will continue to update with anything new!!!

Just wanted to make an update you all on my...

Just wanted to make an update you all on my progress... like I said on my last post I have started back on my workouts this week. Although on Monday it was kind of weird ( the feeling) but after a few minutes I was back in the groove and so happy to be working out again. Everyday since then has been progressively good and the workout seem to be helping with my recovery process and circulation. My bruising ( red) is gone, I still have the deep bruising, Also the lumps in the treated area is starting to feel softer and less pronounced. I am able to bend my knees to sit back on my legs...especially when bathing my five month old daughter. As far as results, well I am 17 days post op and I think it looks a little better although because of the lumps in the treated areas I really can't tell. I plan to take more pictures to post and let all of you be the judge of the progress I am having. I'm hopeful that by Christmas the result that I am looking for will be achieved.

I have to wear the compression garment until next tuesday the 7th of August and I am excited to not have to wear this anymore. I think since I bought the spanx that I will continue to wear those since they are easier to pull up and down when using the restroom. Also I like the suppose it gives me while working out and walking around and playing with the kids.

Hello all... Had my appt today and I am five weeks post op. my doctor says that he is seeing improvement in all of the treated areas. He also told me that I will continue to see change and feel changes in my skin as the skin thickens. I tried on the only pair of shorts that i have that are not long and i really like what I see. So excited to see how I look in two months when I go back to see my doctor ( Oct 23rd) . I haven't had time to take pictures I will have my son take some for me soon....

Hello everyone I know its been a while since I gave an update... I have been so busy. Anyway it have been seven weeks since my cellulaze procedure. And I am pleased with the result thus far.... I still have some deep bruising and occasional itching. But the appearance of the cellulite is much better in all of the treatment areas. I go back for another follow up appointment in October and I am sure by then my cellulite will be pretty much gone as it is almost gone now.

I had many people reach out to me

I've had many people reach out to me to find out how I like my results of my cellulaze procedure. Well I love it.... is my thighs completely smooth?? No... but they are wayyy better then they were. I can wear short shorts now and wearing a bathing suite is a thing of beauty. I would recommend this to anyone who is serious and realistic about themselves. I will post pics really soon.
