So after doing extensive research I chose Dr. Attaran as my plastic surgery for liposuction to my entire mid section, (waist, back, hips, etc) Not only was he conveniently across the street from my place of residency, but I also read a few yelp reviews that made me feel comfortable with my choice. Two reviews that did stick out was of others complaining of his unprofessionalism and rudeness,... more
I've always struggled with body image but I've learned to cut myself some slack as I get older because, well... frankly, there are far too many flaws on an older body to obsess over ALL of them! I've accepted my extra weight and my droopy breasts and my gray hairs and little wrinkles but I just can't stop hating my stomach. I probably think about it once every five minutes and I know this... more

(which is an amazing and good thing!!) decided to do full body lipo with fat transfer to face. two pregnancies. was on the fence between lipo and full tuck but in the end decided on the full body lipo. I worked with a doctor who walked me through both options and explained risks and benefits of both.

I have been thinking about doing liposuction since 2012. I had reached my highest weight ever - 155lbs (I'm 5'3) and I was at a loss at what to do because I thought I was eating right and exercising 4-5 times a week. I ended up going to a fat camp instead of liposuction. The camp really helped set me up for eating healthy as a lifestyle (I already ate healthy in general - but it refined it for... more

I did lipo on my back mostly because my love handles was getting out of control. I'm 5'3 155ish. The day of I was super nerves I felt like I can feel the heat. I was pretty much drugged up and I don't do good with medicine because on my ride home I threw up all over the car in traffic. The 1st night it was hard I kept getting sick couldn't even have water. The next day was much better I did... more

Okay so I've talked about Liposuction this and liposuction that for years and now I'm finally doing it. It started off as just a consultation and ended up scheduling a procedure date! #WINNING!!! Plastic surgeons are worse than car salesmen, I walked out feeling like I would look like far distant cousin of Beyonce, with the right lighting and a little glaucoma :-), don't HATE! No... more
I had a tummy tuck just about 22 months ago, in November of 2012. When I maintain a very low weight, the results are fine. Unfortunately, as soon as I gain a little weight, a shelf of fat appears above my TT scar. I would expect this were I significantly overweight, but I am 5'8" and weigh under 132 pounds. At 127 pounds, the shelf is not there. So I have asked a local plastic surgeon to... more
Jason did several lipo procedures for me in August of 2013, including the stomach, lower back, and upper back under the armpits. He also did botox and juvederm for me at various times. He is extremely professional, friendly, helpful and caring. He was great with follow up phone calls and emails to check on my post surgery progress, as well as providing extensive information on what to... more
I am in my mid 40's and have been neglecting how I look for awhile now because I am a very busy physician working odd schedules that does not allow a lot of time for rigorous work out or hours in the gym sculpting my body. I am very active and spend time doing aerobic exercise just to stay heart healthy but the toll of the years of neglect on fine tuning my body has caught up and for sometime... more
When I had this proceedure I had lost a lot of weight, and I'd also had prior lipo. I had more weight to lose but I knew it was going to take at least another year or so to reach my goal. I wanted to look good in clothes while I lost weight. My knees had a bulge that made my legs look odd in jeans. I wanted to make my face look a little nicer. I wanted to have my picture taken with my kids and... more
My arms are HALF the size they used to be thanks to Dr. Vistnes! I had liposuction on my trouble spot arms and I could not be more thrilled with the results! After years of dieting and weights and frustration taking the plunge and deciding for liposuction with Dr. Vistnes was the best choice for me. Recovery was fairly easy and the result is I can wear tank tops any time without feeling self... more

I'm 5'-6" and about 153 lbs. I've lost about 50 lbs over 5 years through diet and exercise. I'm pretty happy with my overall hourglass shape, but, like most women, there are parts of my body that I'd like to smooth and tighten. Also, I'm excited about the potential metabolic boost that occurs after liposuction.
At this point, I'm researching my options and collecting pictures of healthy,... more
