Waiting for Results - Minnesota

I'll upload photos when there's something to see but I had the procedure done last week and I know I have to be patient.

I had my muffin top/hip area done and was able to have both sides done at the same time with a little creative towel propping, so I was there a little under two hours including prep time and photos. It was pretty easy and if you've done your homework you know what to expect; intense sucking pressure followed by cold and then numbness.

The only part I wasn't expecting was the way I would feel when they took it off. I could handle the pain but when she started massaging the frozen tissue back down I felt sorta sick and faint. I don't know if it was the fact that it was numb and I couldn't feel it so it messed with my brain or if my body went into a little shock ... it was easier on the second side but I advise if you're prone to fainting or clammy nauseous episodes to watch for that. After ten minutes I got dressed and was on my way.

So far the only "side effects" I've had are slight bruising (not even purple, more spotty pink then turning light green) and the lack of skin sensitivity when you touch the areas. I have had occasional burning, tingling and tenderness but not a lot and I haven't had to take any OTC pain killers - it's manageable. I've been rebounding every day to keep my lymphatic system going and get those fat cells moving out.

So ... now I wait! I hope to upload my before and after photos in a couple months and put doctor information in as well. Good luck to everyone.

I'm two weeks post procedure and have the measuring tape handy! There have been no changes as far as shape or size but all signs of bruising are completely gone and the only way I know where the machine was used is due to the skin numbness. I have an occasional itch on the perimeters of the area but nothing else. I hope to take photos in two weeks for the "one month" and then again at two months. I truly hope to see visible results and feel better in my clothes by Fall. It's so hard to wait!

I can go in for my two month follow up after October 1 and hopefully get some "after" photos taken so I can compare and share. I'm very happy with the results so far. Everything has smoothed down nicely and my pants fit better. It's also a great motivator to exercise to keep the results coming. I'm a fan! I'll probably go back for more treatments.

I haven't had after care follow-up nor any communication via phone or email so I left those blank. I saw the doctor briefly for my first visit but the entire procedure was done by a technician and she was great!
