I am in menopause and was just beyond frustrated with the 10 pounds that I could not take off due to hormones. I tried every diet and exercised like a maniac. I needed the "head to toe" liposuction (abs, flanks, thighs inner and outer and arms) and I am so glad I did.Before my surgery my MD sent me a packet of information that was sooo helpful. It described the exact swelling I... more
I was two different sizes. A size 6/8 on top and a size 12/14 on bottom. I also had an injury that caused some fat to be pushed up on my hip and it caused one thigh to be bigger than the other. I wanted to be one size so clothes would fit.

He did not promise me unrealistic results, but did think I was a good candidate for the surgery.
I had the surgery... more
Getting lipo was part of my silly quest to look like someone who isn’t 45 years old. Along the way I learned that I’m not meant to wear mini-skirts or have a flat belly… this is just me.
