*Treatment results may vary
10 before-and-after photos from RealSelfers who have tried tumescent liposuction.
There's little to love about love handles, which is why some RealSelfers turn to tumescent liposuction. Tumescent liposuction is a technique that is supposed to reduce bleeding during the procedure and have a faster recovery time by shrinking the fat through fluid.
So, how do you choose which liposuction procedure is right for you? Take a look at the different transformations below (including normal lipo, Smart Lipo, and VASER lipo), along with a little update on their progress...
AFatGirl: Mom of Two, Considered a Tummy Tuck Went With Lipo
"I have two children, stretch marks and just a gross fat belly. The recovery was not that bad, a bit uncomfortable but well worth it."
"Overall, I feel like my shape is now more hourglass and less spare tire. I still have some major weight loss to go in my journey and my husband and I have been walking about an hour a day so we're on the right track :)"
April Nichole: 27-Year-Old Mom in South Carolina
"I am about 3 months post op and I am feeling much better. No pain and i'm loving my new contour. I'm not totally flat yet but I am getting there. Since my surgery, I have went on to lose about 15 pounds so my self-confidence has really improved."
Yanya03: 21-Year-Old Midwesterner
"Last night I got dressed up and went out with some friends it was Soo much fun and I wore a shirt that I bought so long ago and Never wore because I was too fat. It looked great on me! I got compliments on how great I was looking and how I really lost some weight! (They don't know) haha I loved every second of it. So Realselfers when you are feeling better put that shirt on that didnt fit before and go show it off!!!"
MommyBoeys: 36-Year-Old Fitness Instructor
"I absolutely love my results! Now I have to say, I went wheat free as of March 1st for fun and have decided to stick with it! It has made a huge difference in my energy levels and being BLOATED! My tummy and flank area are amazing! I do work out 5 days a week, ie a gym class, not crazy workouts but I do make sure I work out 5 days a week. I would do this again in a heartbeat!"
Lovefo: Philly Girl
"2 years later I still love my results!!!!!"
Crzydvl: 30-Something Former Military Woman
"I'm happy with my stomach but I am a little bit self conscious about the scars. They're still a bit dark so I'm hoping the Maderma lightens them get back to a normal color. Up until last week, I was working out 4-6 days a week but work picked up so I've fallen off that band wagon. I plan on getting back into a routine starting after the Labor Day weekend. And I'll start a new food plan."
Spare Tire: 39-Year-Old Living in Virginia
"I've never had a flat stomach. Even when I was a kid I had this round little belly poking out from my shirts. Through the years, no matter what size I was, my pouch was always there."
Lakergirl8087: Georgia Belle
"... I'm doing pretty good now, I must admit that it was alittle painful."
Mrsdaddymoe: 24-Year-Old Mom
"I decided to get lipo after I had my daughter in december of 2011. I have always had a big booty and little waist, even after my first child 5 years ago, but it seems like the old saying, "while pregnant with a girl, she takes all your good qualities and traits" has stood true for me. Don't get me wrong, I love my body, I just wanted to see my va-j-j and hourglass shape again."
