For as long as I can remember, I’ve always said, “one of these days, I am going to have liposuction”. The idea of sucking fat out of certain areas on my body for it to be gone forever, is very intriguing to me. But I’ll be honest, the idea of surgery, drain tubes and the recovery needed are all reasons I haven’t done more than think about it. Thankfully for me and everyone with my similar thought process, there are other options out there that require ZERO down time! One of those options is Laser Lipo! About a month and a half ago, I started my journey with laser lipo. Now that it’s over, I bet you’re wondering…did it work?
*I received Laser Lipo and Venus Legacy for the purpose of this post. All opinions are 100% my own*
About Laser Lipo
What exactly is laser lipo and where can you get it done? I visited a LightRx Face & Body location near me. Basically laser lipo is a truly painless procedure that uses low level lasers to target the fat in a particular area. That targeted fat breaks down the stored triglycerides in the fat cells into free fatty acids and glycerol.
Where does the fat go?
That was one of my main questions. I didn’t want to have this treatment and then spend the rest of the day in the bathroom getting rid of all that fat! No worries…that’s now how it happens! The fat is transported to various tissues to be burned off during post-treatment exercise. So basically, laser lipo is a process that mimics the body’s natural process of releasing stored fat to be used as energy.
At the first appointment, we went over what treatment would be like and what I could expect each week. We then took pictures (I do not have access to those pictures) and measurements. Since I was having the dreaded “saddlebag” area treated (my gosh I hate that word), we measured at the top of my thigh, the middle and the bottom.
My Measurements to Start
- 30 1/2″
As you can see, one side is much worse than the other. Apparently that is normal (or…well, at least I would like to let myself believe it’s normal)! After 10 treatments of laser lipo and eight treatments of Venus Legacy (this tightens the skin and helps reduce cellulite), I have lost an inch on my upper and middle part of my thigh on my right leg and an inch on all three parts of my left leg!! Because of the difference between how my right and left leg look, I still need more treatments, which I fully plan on signing up for in the next couple of months!
I am very pleased with the transformation! At first I wasn’t sure if there were any changes. However, as I started going shopping, I began noticing that pants were fitting me differently. To me, that was huge. If you are someone that has to deal with saddlebags, you know that how clothes fit, due to your lovely baggage, is really important.
Would I Recommend Laser Lipo?
You bet I would recommend it. In fact, not only do I want to repeat the same area, I also would like to have my stomach treated. After having two children via c-section, no matter how much weight I lose, parts of my stomach will never change. The place I went to, LightRx Face & Body has locations in various states throughout the United States. Definitely check their site out, research laser lipo and see if it is the solution for you!
