I am 5'3", 125 pounds. I work out at least 4-5 times a day and I really do like my body except for my saddlebags/legs. They are muscular but they have always had these pockets of fat on them that stick out further than my hips. I do squats, leg lifts with weights, elliptical, running, spinning etc. I finally decided to research lipo and after going to a couple consultations, decided on doctor Griffin in Nashville, TN. His staff has been amazing so far.

My surgery is in two days (getting general anesthesia) and I am excited/nervous. This site has helped so much, I decided that I wanted to also write a review, and I will put up results/pics as often as I can. I am a Christian, and I struggled with "messing" with the body that God gave me, but I analyzed my motivations and intentions and I really just want to do this for myself for my confidence. I had nightmares all last night of the surgery, but after a lot of research, I really am ready and excited. Wish me luck! :)

Well I am back at work today (monday) and my surgery was just this past Friday. Overall the pain is bad, but really not horrible. The hardest part has been the swelling for me because I am 5 pounds heavier than when I went into surgery and my legs are so swollen still. My bruising seems to be getting a little worse everyday..but it is NOTHING compared to most of the bruises I have seen on here. I took pain medicine all weekend, and this morning I woke up and was really sick (threw up a lot) but I think it was because of the meds. I feel fine now. I have spanx on today (which my doctor said tight, long spanx would be fine to wear to work) and taking them up and down has been a nightmare (I still have stiches and extremely sore). Next trip to the bathroom, I am bringing scissors. I didn't fit into any of my cothes with the compression garment on, so I am going to put that back on tonight. This morning in the shower was the first time I could see a LITTLE difference, and got really excited. Because I have closed incisions, I heard the swelling will last a little longer, but I am okay with that as long as it eventually goes away :) I took a couple of pictures of the bruising to show everyone...but I apologize for the bad camera work :) I also will upload my before pictures. Once the swelling goes down in a week or two, I will upload my after pics.

Very happy one month later. Will post pictures now...
