I'm 30 years old with three kids. I had a breast aug. 2 years ago and now I'm returning to my surgeon for lipo. I'm having 4 sections done (front and back). I decided last minute not to have it 2 years ago with my breast aug. surgery because of reviews I read. Now I'm ready! I'm so excited and nervous. I recently started working out and I am confident I can tone my arms and legs, but my... more
I had abdomen Liposuction after cancer surgery…
I had a cancer five years ago and they had to cut through my abdominal muscles to remove and resection part of my colon. I hadn't had a flat stomach before, but the surgery made my stomach bigger, and it kept getting worse. I was always self-conscious so I never wore a bathing suit. I was told the results would be satisfactory to me, but to... more
I considered lip for a long time, did my research and finally bit the bullet and did it! I'm happy with the way my body looks. It's definitely not a "fix all" for body issues, but it helps a lot and for qualified candidates, it's a good procedure. Although I recommend having the procedure itself for those whose issues can be helped by lipo, see my review on the doctor so you can better prepare... more
So here is the story.....I wanted my bra fat, rib cage, lower back, flanks and hips done, then the doctor talks me into getting my stomach done, which was not that bad, but why not, right? The one thing they DO NOT TELL YOU is that by law they will only be taking out 7 pounds (that we never get to see proof of). So think about it, the more areas you do, and remember...you have a left and right... more
Dr.Sanjay was my doctor for my breast augmentation procedure and after the terrifically amazing job he did on my breasts I've decided he's the one and only doctor ill ever go to for any plastic surgery procedure. So as I came in for my 9 month follow up for my breast implants I also came in for a consultation for liposuction. I wanted to know if first of all I was the right candidate for it... more
I've been debating liposuction for a while now. I'm very glad I found this community online with all these different experiences. I'm about to go to Lebanon, and I need to find a good and priced reasonably for a full body liposuction and tummy tuck.
I've been overweight my whole life, I've reached my breaking point, now I'm sick and tired of looking at myself. I've tried dieting and... more
I had liposuction on my stomach, love handles, and lower back. After 2 kids and exercising regularly my abs and stomach would not bounce back. Dr. Grover is an exceptional surgeon and pays immaculate attention to detail. His staff are friendly and helpful. The anesthesiologist and dr grover made my experience relatively pain free. I would recommend Dr Grover this procedure has exceeded my... more
Hi! So I love real self and I'm a huge fan of all the support that is given when people feel their lowest and most vulnerable. Well thats where I am...I had lipo of the abdomen and flanks 3 weeks ago and I look only slightly different. .. the day after I looked perfect... (Toot toot!) Now I'm starting to second guess if it was a trick mirror because I only look slightly different than pre... more
I am a 40 year old type 1 diabetic of 35 years and Dr. Jon Sattler who was the Plastic Surgeon and Dr. S who was the Anesthesiologist were the BEST doctors I have EVER seen. I have had 3 different procedures by 3 different doctors in 3 different cities in California and after having a 12lb baby and I would now NEVER go anywhere else. Dr. Sattler did a GREAT tummy tuck and liposuction on my... more
I am 50 years old, 5'0 tall and weigh 116 lbs, so I'm not fat at all, but I had this really fat belly after pregnancy and genetically big arms ever since. I decided to go for arms and tummy liposuction. The process was smooth and I had the best medical assistant who put my fears and nerves at ease. The healing process was good, i had a little bruising and the swelling didn't last long. ... more
I can't thank Dr. Elam enough for his work on my face. I'm a 29yr old male in good physical shape; however, I have always had a 'pouch' of fat underneath my jawline-most likely due to genetics. He improved my side profile in a way that I didn't think was possible. I'm so grateful my dermatologist (Dr. Dore Gilbert) referred me to him. If you are thinking about getting liposuction done, I... more
Very friendly and good doctor. Took out about 800cc fat total. I was fairly lean but there was a big improvement. I know he will also touch up if necessary. He is one of the few legitimate surgeons that charges a fair price. I recommend him over anyone else because he does not rip you off, yet is extremely skilled. more
I had total body liposuction around new years this year. I am completely healed and feeling great! I love it! My stomach is much flatter and my thighs are slimmer. The first two weeks after surgery were a little rough, but after that everything was good. I healed quite quickly.
I had liposuction done with him in 2008 and i didn't see a difference he didn't even call me back for an after photo. Unprofessional, after i gave him a deposit he said i shouldn't have my expectations so high. Very unprofessional. I wanted smaller thighs because there is an area where it just wont go down, it didnt go the way i wanted it todo not go to this guy, he is unprofessional and isnt... more
My experience was amazing. I was concerned about not taking any narcotics due to my recovery from alcoholism. I had a little pain the second day, I only took extra strength Tylenol from day two to day 7. After that I had no pain. I felt amazing and started walking on day 7. I feel better about myself, have more energy, and am enjoying my 50's! I just love my choice to have the surgery. I went... more
Being over 50 yrs old, I found it impossible to lose my stomach fat even with training and running 1/2 Marathons and spinning and eating healthy. This was my last resort and I'm so glad I did it. I'm very pleased with the results and am considering addtional areas to be done. The results have made my self esteem blossom and I feel more comfortable at parties since clothes fit me better. more

Seeing my photos will fat grafting help or make it worse. He wants to take fat from my upper back here an put in my thighs. Please helpI had fat transfer done to creases and I am 5 days post op.. I was wondering... more
I've wanted lipo for years! I'm 57, 5'4" 128#'s, active/workout regularly, but have never liked my thick thighs (chub rub on the inners & lumping on the outside of my hips & yes 1 side is lumpier than the other) & now that menopause has descendent upon me my waist is thickening & back fat is creeping in. I'm in So. CA so there is NO shortage of surgeons to choose from. I... more
I had abdomen and flank/back liposuction under tumescent anesthesia with approx 3400cc of fat removal. I had gained a lot of abdominal fat in the last 2 years and didn't really like the way my body looked in form fitting clothes. I've been a client of Dermfx Sunset Beach for some time and when I seen the lipo special by Dr. Tod Miller I knew I had to try it. Its been 2 months since the... more
Living in Newport, looking pretty means almost everything. I have always been athletic and have played pretty much every sport and love being active. But I have always been a little bit on the bigger side. I just never got rid of my baby fat. Always being a little chubbier in a place where looks are important always made me feel insecure and uncomfortable.
I heard about liposuction from a... more
