I didn’t get lucky with the Genes.

I’m one of those people who didn’t get lucky with the genes. I’m a former Lap Band patient and I lost over 125lbs a while ago. I really work to maintain my weight and am very physically active. I did my first triathalon two summers ago and I’m constantly either doing hot yoga or something. I’m also a sales manager for a major corporation, which means I travel a lot.

I couldn’t kick that last 20 lbs.

It’s been 3 1/2 years since I lost my weight but I just couldn’t kick that last 20 pounds, even though I work out all the time. There were those little pockets of fat that I just couldn’t seem to get rid of. I wasn’t looking to lose the weight. I was looking to change the shape of my body.

I got rid of my “butt shelf”.

I decided to do my hips, my outer thighs, my inner thighs. They went from my inner thigh all the way down to my knee, just to take that excess fat off of there, the tops of my thighs, my lower back – what I called –“a butt shelf”.

I didn’t feel any pain.

Wow! I felt very comfortable. Athenix did a really good job of explaining to me how they were reshaping my body. I was awake but I was really comfortable. I didn’t feel anything that was painful. I wasn’t scared, or nervous. I had come out of anesthesia before and it had been a nightmare. I couldn’t believe it when they said “Okay, you’re done.” And I was like, “Really? Is it time to go home?”

The downtime was nothing.

The great thing about this procedure was the downtime was nothing. I was back to work day two. I was on an airplane, five days post-procedure. I was moving around fine. I got back to the gym gradually. It took about 30 days to get back to the gym full throttle. This was an important factor to me in choosing this procedure and Athenix. Between my career and other activities, I lead a busy life and really didn’t want to put my life on hold for weeks at a time.

I am no longer battling with the shape of my body.

Yea! I – I want more. I definitely want more. Absolutely, I’m happy with the results. No regrets at all. I’m very curvy and I finally feel like I have a – what you would call a ‘normal’ figure. I am no longer battling with shape of my body. I’m very happy with it.

  3. Patients can only bring 1 other person with them to the appointment.
  4. All patients (and caregivers) need to wear a mask while in the facility. Please bring a cloth or other mask with you to the appointment.
  5. Physical distancing will be in effect in the office waiting room and throughout the office.
