I am currently 2 days out from having Cellulaze to the anterior thighs and Smartlipo Triplex to outer thighs and and hips. Procedures were performed with local anesthesia and no notable discomfort during the procedure. In addition to the local anesthesia Valium and Xanax were prescribed. I was moderately alert during the procedure (probably to the detriment of my surgeon) because I believe I talked incessantly. The entire procedure took about 2 1/2 hours. Recovery has been simple.
I am 42 yrs old. Work out 5 days per week. Eat a balanced diet. Pleased with my figure BUT, have been plagued with cellulite since I can remember. My doctor described my cellulite as a 2 and believes I was a good candidate. My main area of concern has been my anterior thighs...you have to be very creative, living in Fl, to disguise the front of your thighs in the dog days of summer. Currently I am bruised and swollen but extremely optimistic. I do have before photos and will continue to keep a photo journal as time passes.
