I have been thinking of LipoDissolve for 6 months now.  I am a grad student and just finished finals, so I want to go for it over my holiday break.  I have shopped around in KC looking at prices, etc.  I will definitely have to do payment plans with my low income b/c of FT school!

My concern is.. is it really going to work?  I have read hours worth of postings.  No one talks about loving it!  They say they have seen some improvements..  

There is also a lot of talk about "hard spots", etc.  Can someone respond that has done the procedure and is happy with the results?!

(FYI: I have probably 15 excess pounds in my belly.  I also have large large breasts.)  Thanks!

I have had my second session and going in for my 3rd one next Wednesday.  I can actually see a difference.  I am doing my belly...5 kids...lots of fat there...lol.  I'm VERY tender in that area.  Also, has anyone been told to massage the nodlues in between sessions?

hey, i had lipdissolve performed on my waist yesterday.  the injections were not very painful, they were little pricks. The only problem that i experienced was that i was standing up and it made me feel light headed but the doctor was excellent and he allowed me to take little breaks. Once it was over, i did have to rest for a little while (don't exactly know why they call it lunchtime lipo) because if i had to go back to work, i would have been in bad shape. As long as you rest for a few hours, u should be fine.  There is a little nauseousness involved and i did swell and bruise.  But this is the second day and the swelling is going down. Honestly the area feels like you got your ass kicked but i swear its really not bad. i have my next series in 4 wks and i do plan on going back!

I had  my first session on Saturday 9/15/07. Not a bad experience. They gave me a protein br to eat b4 the proceedure. Having something to support your waist is very helpful afterwards, also massaging the area is very helpful. Redness is gone today, monday 09-17-06. Still swolen a bit, but it is well worth it. I have 2 more sessions. This is great. Girls, don't be such wimps. I would not hesitate to do this again. Looking forward to my next session.

Had lipodisove done 3 days ago.  I was lightheaded right after the procedure.  I think due to being nervous and tense before it from not knowing what to expect.  It actually didn't hurt that much and on my third day I have almost no swelling or pain.  I do have a minor bruise and yellowish skin in the area that was treated.  Has anybody experienced the yellow skin before?

Hi - I noticed you are also in Houston. Do you mind telling me which clinic and how much it is for the treatment. I plan to get it done this month. I have only been to one place and I think it is $350 for one area, not including the price for a few supplements they want you to take to speed up the weight loss. I met a patient in the waiting room while I was waiting for a friend and she dropped 2 pant sizes in one month after 1 treatment. Her stomach looked really flat - she said she was going to only do 1 more treatment and she would be happy.

I had lipo dissolve done on my love handles 01/07/08 by a doctor in Aurora, IL. Very nice lady. And yes, there was tolerable pain, bruising, and swelling. I had the procedure done about 7pm. I don't recall being nauseated or light-heated., but I took 2 tylenol before leaving the clinic, and the pain was gone by the next morning. I was still swolen and very sore in the treatment area, but was able to move about with no issues. I did where a fitted surgery garment for about a week to compress the swelling, and so that I wouldn't look deformed in my clothes. Most people go back for treatments within 2-3 weeks. My doctor recommends 6 - 8 weeks. She is an Indian, board certified doctor, and indicates that most doctors encourage 2-3 weeks, because the swelling hasn't totally went down, and it's an incentive to continue to charge you money. She also said that on average, most clients should only need 2, maybe 3 treatments as opposed to 4-6. I'm on my 3rd week, and have notice a big difference. The swelling and bruising have totally went away, but when I touch the area, I can tell that there is still some sensation there. I will go back for my 2nd and final treatment on 2/18/08. Good look to all of you....By the way, my treatments are $400/per treatment area.
