I'm really nervous about getting lipo. But after gaining and losing weight my body isn't like it used to.. my body bounced back after I had my 1stchild. I assumed it would do the same after my 2nd... I was so wrong.. my youngest just turned three so I'm really need to change my body for me!!! Would love to get lipo and a ba/bl. Would love to hear anyone else's experiences of the both. Thank you =) more
Like many of you I have thought about having this procedure done for years...I just can't seem to get rid of this belly I have researched and looked at many doctors over the past few weeks....I had been looking on here to find reviews for the doctor I have chosen and I haven't seen any :(....I must honestly say that him and Ms. Andrea made me feel so comfortable in the office...I am a jokester... more
Love handles started developing when I was 15 They did bot bother me as much. As time went by I gained weight, it seemed like most of the weight accumulated on my lower back and flanks I was very conscious and unhappy about the way my body looked I looked online and Pacific Lipo seem to have very good reviews and wasn't as costly as in my area. I made my decision made my appointment and drove... more
Had my procedure done on Thursday the 22nd and I'm feeling good 2 days post op. I had my upper and lower abs, waist, and bra rolls. The pain is less than I expected! I do feel sore like I went hard in the gym but I expected that. I'm having a hard time keeping my garment tight and smooth it seems to crease at my waist which cases extra pain. Any suggestions on the best garment for my areas of... more
Hello. After scrolling through umpteen photos on Real Self and not finding women with body types like mine to compare, I've decided to do my own review of my upcoming procedure in hopes of helping other women who may be having the same problem. I'm 27, African American, 5'4, 235 lbs. I'm very muscular, upwards of over 35% muscle, 40% pure fat. I have what people today call a "box body". ... more
I want to preface this review by saying that Rod and the staff at Pacific Lipo were all very nice people, I unfortunately just didn't have good results with my lipo. There are some pretty serious dents all over my arms. Abdomen too, although not as bad as my arms. I got a refund from them for my arms for $1700 which was nice, but it is still going to cost me $9,000 to fix the dents with a fat... more
I always wanted smaller thighs. I tried dieting and exercising but it didn't work for my thighs. A friend who had liposuction of her lower abdomen recommended exploring liposuction as an option. I searched for qualified cosmetic surgeons in San Diego and had consultations with couple of doctors who recommended liposuction of the inner and outer thighs. Am so happy with the work I had done... more
I am so sorry to report my experience was completely odd, confusing, and uncomfortable. After months of researching Pacific Lipo, reading some pretty great reviews, watching videos, seeing the pictures, and sharing my excitement with friends, I am left feeling completely let down. I feel conflicted even writing this review. I have only ever written positive reviews, but hopefully it will save... more
I came in for a consultation for lipo I was considering to get my whole body done which includes abs, arms, thighs, and flanks. The doctors first question was where I was from as soon as he found out I'm from the middle east he tripled his price 24k is not a normal price for a 22 year old I'm not over weight I just like everything to be perfect on my body. Not only did he want to give me this... more
Three days ago I had my upper and lower abdomen done at Pacific Liposculpture. Rod Davis is a PA with quite a bit of experience under his belt. I chose hime because he was honest, friendly, professional, and does the same procedure all day long. I would prefer to have someone who is very skilled and judging by his reviews and before and after picture he is very skilled.
1st day- I was very... more
Dr. Shumway is a wonderful doctor! He has more experience than most surgeons when it comes to body and face. He does not rush his patients into surgery and carefully presents risks and benefits. Dr. Shumway is a very good listener. Cherise, the Patient Care Coordinator, is very knowledgeable on a variety of procedures and makes you feel very comfortable, as a new patient (especially when in... more
After a year of healthy eating and exercising .... I finally came to the decision to get lipo. I have had virtual and office consults and everyone has advised me to get a tummy tuck instead of lipo. But I am afraid of the scar, I have had 3 c-sections and i have a small keloid scar and a tummy tuck would leave a long scar . So I decided to get lipo on my back.....with the hopes that it will... more
Great results here! It's been about 8 months and I'm all healed up. I did 4 areas, sides of stomach and top and bottom of stomach. Results are great but incision scars are taking a really long time to heal :(. Rod was nice, staff was nice. The procedure itself was a little painful but I was able to drive my self home. Recovery was the hard part, after meds wore off I didn't take anymore so I... more

After reseaching multiple doctors in San diego I found Dr. Alavi to be the best option for me. With the combination of experience, price, and bedside manner he had it all. I am pleased so far and being a few hours postop I can say I am in little to no pain so far and all I have taken is 1000mg of tylenol. Yhais was done under general. My anesthesiologist Carol Mann was awesome too. I also... more
Scheduled for lipo to my upper/lower stomach, waist, and flanks. I am 58 yrs old with a long recovery from spine surgeries (4) which resulted in multi level spinal fusion (and other surgeries) very limited activities led to weight gain . Am hoping this will help as I continue my water aerobics and walking.
The swelling has continued to go down and most of the skin feeling has returned with... more
I am a very healthy and fit person, but I always complained about a resistant fat mass over my outer thighs. I went to see Dr. Pousti after I have visited several doctors. He was one to put me at ease and explain exactly what to expect from the procedure as well as discussing a custom procedure based on my personal esthetic needs. I am so pleased with my decision to go with Doctor Pousti and... more
I had to post bc if I had let all the negative posts on recovery/pain I read on here influence me, I would have cancelled.
However, I had previously had an Upper Eyelid Lift and Breast Reduction in which the recovery was so no big deal, so I was hoping my Lipo recovery would be the same.
I want to share, so others may not get scared away.
Background on me:
Crazy workouts... more
