Like everyone else on here I was interested in getting that stubborn muffin top pouch reduced on my abs. Im psysically fit, run 5 miles a day, plus the gym 4 days a week, as well as eat healthy meals, no sugar ever, cake, cookies etc. If I do "indulge" once in awhile, it's always sugar free stuff.
So, had it done in mid January and basically the only side affects I had were extreme bloating (like some I've read on here) and for some very odd reason, alot of gas! It took a good 3 weeks for the bloating to subside but the gas still happens occasionally. I've never had gas like this before in my life. The bloating was so bad that I felt like I did when I was in my early pregnany a lonnnng time ago.
I never got any of the itching or dry skin feeling at all. However, the only complaint I've had about the whold procedure was that when I first went for my consultation it was the doctor who examined the area in question and mentioned how he would attach the area of fat to the machine and so on. But when I got there the only time I saw the doctor was when he circled the area in question, and then had his assistant, a young girl who looked no older than 20 come in an take over.
The girl was very small and had a hard time getting the fat all squeezed into the machine, and after much pressure and applying she finally succeeded. After she did my two sides I was up and out of there, never even saw the doctor afterwards. They have called me back twice for follow-ups but we've had a bad winter up here with too much snow so I wasn't able to get there, but I will now.
In all honesty, I don't see any reduction or change in that area as of yet. I was told it could take up to 4 months for results so now Im still waiting, which should be mid May sometime. Im on a fixed income and had save up really hard for this, so I do have alot of hope for it, but I guess only time will tell....hopefully not too much time!
