Pros: I noticed the difference right away! That very night. Before the swelling went down. I no longer hate the mirror. It was over four years ago and I am still thrilled with the improvement. I am no longer afraid to wear shorts in public.
Cons: I had some expected bruising and soreness.
Totally worth it! Only used percocet first two nights and then switched to ibuprofen and tylenol alternating.
I had the procedure because I had that one little thing I hated about myself- my abnormally fat hips that never went away, even when I was running four miles a day 5 times a week. They were diproportionate to the rest of my body.
