I started in Apr 08. Paid more than $3500 for 6 treatments - 3 for abs and 3 for my thighs. AFter 5 months, I lost a total of 1 inch from stomach and 1/2 inch from each thigh. That comes out to $1700 per inch. Six weeks after my last thigh treatment, I still have some swelling and tenderness.
The treatments were uncomfortable, but not painful and the recovery was the same. The recovery time increased with each treatment - from a few days at first to about 3 weeks at the end.
Definitely not worth it. I wish I had known about these reviews before I paid for the treatments.

Insist the doctor review your case, including everything you ingest - foods, meds (Rx and OTC) and diet supplements - for anti inflammatory agents or other things that might interfere with treatments.
INsist on being weighed at your first session. Some doctors use "trick scales" that weigh heavy so the lack of results can be blamed on weight gain - whether you have really gained weight or not.
Don't be influenced by "sale prices" that are only good for a few more days. If the doctor is willing to do the procedure at a discount now, he/she will still be willing to give you a discount after you have time to do some research.
