For me, I knew liposuction was the last step, leap if you will, that I needed to take on my weight loss journey. Once I got clean and sober, I went from 125 pounds to 225 pounds in a matter of only 18 months. I replaced alcohol with food. I was young at the time, so I lost 50 pounds with a strict diet and an active lifestyle. My lower stomach and back were very stubborn areas that would not... more
If you have ever been in a service oriented environment, it is common to find more people write about complaints compared to positive experiences; and for that reason I am choosing to document my story with high hopes of helping women make the right decision and give a doctor whom I have high expectations and belief in well deserved credit.
Honestly, I am capable of achieving my desired... more
How I'd love to fit in a bodycon dress or a two-piece swim suit and wear it with confidence! I have been considering liposuction and body contouring for a few years and finally booked my date with a board certified plastic surgeon in my area. I am anxious and nervous, but excited about finally having a better proportioned body. At first, I felt a little selfish spending so much on myself,... more
So i am very active and eat pretty well but i have stubborn belly fat and i was so over it! I finally saved up and got it done.
I went to American lipo center in Atlanta. My nurse Sundance was awesome! My Dr was nice but seemed like a shy guy. Both answered all my questions and very honest.
The day of the surgery was about 4 hrs in total. I was pretty out of it most of the time.
I can see a... more
I just wanna look sexy as hell on the beach this summer! Is that too much to ask?! Working 2 jobs takes up all my time and I'm unable to workout like I want, so I decided about a month ago to get liposuction to my abdomen, flanks, back and bra roll. I've actually been researching Zerona and Cool Sculpting for months but I don't think these will get me the results I want.
I tried to get in... more
Let's just say I think I made my biggest mistake ever! I want to cry because of the bruises on my stomach. I've never seen myself this way.
I had a consultation with Dr. Taerri a week before my procedure to do the full torso package (abs, sides, and back). My procedure was scheduled for Easter day at 2 o'clock. The times were changed to 3, then 5... at about 7:45 I informed the nurse that I... more
I have been researching to find a surgeon for some time now. I have been dieting and excercising to reduce my weight and possible a health condition. I have been a plus size female since the 9th grade of high school. I've spent the last 20 years of my life over 200 pounds. So I have made it my business to reduce my weight to below 200 before my 40 birthday so that I can spend the next 20... more
I have a consultation with Dr. Julian Gordon today at 2pm. I'm nervous and ready. I had a consultation in the past at another plastic surgery location years ago but I wasn't ready. IM READY NOW lol. I'll post a pic of my current body later on. I am hoping he can show more pictures of procedures he has done in the past
I have decided to make Dr, Gordon my surgeon. he made me comfortable at... more
I wanted a little more volume in my breasts after my first breast augmentation with Dr. Jeffords. I had 600cc Moderate Plus Silicone implants with my first augmentation. I am about 135lbs with an athletic /muscular build, 5'3" and 31 years old with one child. Dr. Jeffords is absolutely awesome. He listened to what I wanted and recommended I go with either 650cc or 700c High Profile Round... more
For many years (even when I was smaller) I always wanted to contour my body. Even though I'm now a plus sized woman, I'm healthy and happy with my body but not my overall shape. I decided to begin researching doctors and came up with Dr. Freidlander in Atlanta which is about 45 minutes from my home. I had my lipo done on 2/27/15-this was upper and lower abdomen and love handles?. Overall... more

I've previously had a TT 5/09 and have since grown love handles :| never had this issue before but it really creeps me out. I'm searching for a PS that could rid me of the handles and contour my waist to give me an hourglass shape. I've been putting in hours on research because I want to have the sx in a few months. (Gotta get my pto up) hahaha. I'm currently on the fence between Jimmerson and... more
I went to Dr. Kulkin because I thought he was good, nice and personable. The staff was great, he called me personally to check on me. Mostly an okay experience. I explained to him I wanted my love handles and stomach done. He said he could take care of it. He said I only needed the front done. I had the surgery and it went great. No pain really and I was awake. I was amazed. Afterwards my... more
I am new to RS. I received my labs yesterday and my iron is 10.5. I was instructed by my patient coordinator to start taking iron supplements. She said she would have the nurse call me. Didn't receive her call today, hopefully tomorrow. I really do not want to have to reschedule. Any suggestions. I am having upper and lower abs and bra roll.
Hi everyone, sorry to post pictures so late. I... more
Four years ago I paid for Smart Lipo to my arms, tummy and inner thighs. Long story short, I was not happy with the results. It took me four years to do something about it because I actually blamed myself for not doing more research before going forward with the PS. Further, I wanted to convince myself after spending so much money that my eyes were playing tricks on me and my expectations... more
I regret so bad for the decision in making these procedures with Dr. Joseph Bauer.
Called them about 6 months later because I felt my skin so loose and I have lumps since then. I still have lumps on my belly and thighs, they said to come back in 1 year. I went back and they want to charge me for another lipo. My skin is tooooo loose, my butt fall. My belly is worst then befOre the lipo. My... more
I decided to post this to share my experience with my proedure as I believe we all learn from each other.
My belly was probabbly the biggest of all you so I decided after having twins 5 years ago to repare my body. My husband never agreed but he supported me to do it. I just did it yesterday October 14th is not much I can show now as I am swallen, sore and recoveing little by little... more
After I went from being a size 5 to a 14 after having my son, nothing including working out seem to make me lose weight in my mid section. Fortunately I am extremely shapely so it didn't look horrible but I wasn't happy with my size so lipo was inevitable. I went to American Lipo Center and they were able to get 5lbs of fat from my stomach and flanks. I can't wait to see the final... more
I am trying not to live my life in regret because it's pointless... but I feel like I need to tell other people my story to consider before they get lipo. I am 30 years old, 5'4 and at the time of surgery was 108 pounds. You're probably thinking... 'wait why did you need lipo then?' Let's back up a little. By the age of 25 I had 3 children, aged 3 and under. Between all 3 of them I gained a... more
SOOOO, I've finally decided to take the plunge and get liposuction. I am having my upper and lower abs, waist/flanks, bra roll, and inner thighs done. I am going to do it all under IV Sedation, just because I feel like there is a lot to remove and I don't want the local ansthesia to wear off before it's done. I'm a scary worrier that way...lol. I'm scheduled for August 15th, but hope that... more
