Hi Everyone, I had the procedure yesterday and it was painful in a few spots but definitely tolerable and I did not take any medications. I chose level 35 (50 really hurt) and I was marked 16 spots (4 rows of 4) across my belly. My doctor and her assistant was amazing in getting me through the painful spots. It took about 11/2 hours and felt fine to drive myself home.
Today my stomach feels tender and I have 2 small bruises. I am 52 years old and hope to see the 1 inch reduction in 8-12 weeks. I will keep you updated. These reviews really helped me in deciding to have the procedure.
