I am a very active mother of 3. Needles to say those pregnancies had an impact in my body with significant weight gain and separation of my abdominal muscles. I lost significant weight, > 70 lbs with diet and lots of exercise. I felt great and felt I could take on the world. There was just one problem. My body did not exactly how hard I was working. I had a lot of lose skim around the abdomen,... more
So I had my procedure yesterday and so far all is well. I did had a lot of leakage on the first day. I suggest that if anyone have this procedue done you have someone that will help you and you take your medication especially pain as soon as possible and on time. The first night was hard cause you depend on the person for everything. I will keep you posted as I recover. Day 2 is much easier.... more
I had a liposuction with this guy on my inner and outer thighs, my knees, and my calves. The incision was about 1/3 inches, total of 10 incisions on my legs (he told me 8 during the consultation by the way). The way he did my stitches was VERY BAD. He did not take his time doing it. He did them carelessly, then he just rush out of there. When I got home, some of the stitches were open; I knew... more

I having done my procedure, but everyone in Dr william office were amazing nice and professional super helpful I feel so comfortable without meeting the doctor ! Dr William bruno was so professional and dedicated to what I needed to be done and help me out to reach my goal so my decision was clear with a tummy tuck more
I am delighted with the outcome.My tummy is flat and looks terrific. Dr. Cohen did an excellent job,not only with the surgery,but has a wonderful bedside and caring manner. The surgery was easy before and after. Not painful,just a bit of discomfort,very easy to handle. I am planning to have a facelift with Dr. Cohen next. more
I was referred to Dr. J by a friend of mine who had recently had liposuction done by him. I was amazed by the results and could not wait to book a consultation with him. After meeting Dr. J I was even more confident that I had made the right choice of doctors. He has such a pleasant, honest nature and even told me no to certain things I wanted done which proved to me he really and truly CARES... more
I went to about 4 other Dr's for consultations. At first I did not like this Dr's approach. He does not want you to tell him what you think you want but views your whole body and then tells you where he would recommend. I left there with attention to new areas that never bothered me and feeling a bit bummed. After a little more time I read through his site more and realized his approach was... more
I had originally went in to see and have lipo done with Dr Haworth back in June of 2013 for only my back inner knees and thighs I was so satisfied and impressed with his work that I just went to have more lipo and something else that I never even considered but had thought about doing but was not even sure what I should do which was the breast lift and fat transfer! I wasn't sure what the... more
So I'm counting down the days to my surgery. I'm excited yet nervous. Very eager to see what my results will look like. I will post before & after pics. The first office visit was very informative. I appreciated the doctors honesty regarding the surgeries I needed. Although he did say my ass had a deficiency lmao but it was in a nice way.
So I went to see my doctor today. I'm at a good... more
I have gotten lipo in the past and it was great. I also had the smartlipo which did nothing. I put on some weight on in odd areas and even with exercise I just cannot loose so totally hoping to finally see a waist again and a flat tummy. I am hoping to wear sleeveless shirts and just be able to fit in my clothes again. My shape changed so much and really hoping this will help me fit in my... more
I am brand spanking new to the site and I need your help!!
I have a liposculpture procedure booked with Dr. Hector Arnazzi in Torrance in a couple of weeks, and I can't find ANYTHING on him online. He has performed breast augmentation on 2 friends of mine, so I have seen his work, but I would really like to hear from someone who has used him for liposcupture/tumnescent... more
Okay, so I very new to this site but am so keen on tracking my progress and getting the support I need while I take the plunge. I've been researching good plastic surgeons here in Aus for a lot of years, however I just wasnt totally satisfied with what I was able to find. So I heard about a doctor through a work colleague whose family lives in LA. He told me about how fantastic he was, so I... more
I did not have alot of loose skin and i wanted the sides and back really sucked out. I seen his website photos and he definitely gets the biggest changes. U had seen some other work but their stuff was too conservative for me. I figured if I was going to do it, I wanted to see the biggest change.
So I expected a lot of pain, not too bad though. At little burning on the sides and... more
He didn`t make me ugly but i`m not satisfied with the amount of fat he removed(my thighs are smaller, but still the shape i was going to get rid of), i asked to remove more fat from my upper(vs lower) abs, but he said he would remove equal amount, otherwise it would look ugly, and now i wish i insisted on removing more. my arms were not greatly reduced in size, and he left bumps on my flanks,... more
This review is for actual liposuction experience and initial week of recovery. It is to give you a guide of what to expect during and the first few days following surgery:
I had liposuction done on my abdomen, hips and flanks. I am 27 years old and healthy. I had lost about 50 lbs about 2 years ago and although am not at my personal idea weight yet, my stomach and love handle area were still... more
I'm going in at 10 am for my first ever lipo procedure! (It made me put 10/23 but it's actually 10/22) I'm 5'5" 125 lbs, 22 years old, extremely athletic, and I eat really well. I have always had a "pouch" on my belly. I've been self conscious about it since I hit puberty. I've tried every diet in the book and workout like a mad woman. I've decided it's time. My mom has has a ton of lipo and... more
Hi, I recently joined and have been obsessed with reading the various reviews and experiences. I'm seeking lipo on just about everything below my arms. I'm 37yrs old, 2 kids, 5'2 and 165 lb. The heaviest was 210. Currently I'm waiting on a quote from Yily. I'm very nervous but really need this for me!
So it's been more than a week and still no quotes. I'm now thinking I should just spend... more
I am now about 5 months after liposuction of the stomach, sides, and back. Dr. Hughes liposuctioned my upper back as well. I had noticed that a lot of women had complained about that who did this with other surgeons. I had a lot of swelling in the first few months. I think he took out the max of 5 liters. I looked great the following day. As the swelling set in, it took months before it... more
I had liposuction on my Flanks and a Full Tummy Tuck. I am happy with my results. I now have a FLAT TUMMY....I love my new belly button and tummy. I was sore in the 1st 3 weeks post op. The pain was minimum due to the fact that I have high tolerance for pain. The most important thing that I learned in the process is to let go let God and just have faith in God, Your Dr. and his staff. I had... more
