I saw a Groupon for Vaser Liposuction by Graceful Contours in Norcross GA. I went for my consultation yesterday (1/26/2015). The staff was nice, explained the procedure and showed lots of before and after pictures. I am still afraid but I believe that I can handle the outpatient procedure. After about 1.5 hours of rapid fire questions (from me to them), I scheduled my session for 2/18/2015... more
I have been over weight almost all my life. I recently lost a lit of weight going from 360 lbs to 263lbs. I am at a very long plateau and need a jolt. This surgery is to help me remove some extra fat that doesn't seem to be going anywhere, and I plan to continue my weight loss journey post surgery. I am a plus size model and I am hoping to be a little curvier with a smaller waistline. I... more
I was fairly small growing up and started to pick up weight in college. I had a baby 6 years ago and actually looked great afterwards. Then I met my fiance...needless to say I gained "happy weight" to the tune of about 10lbs for every we have been together (5 years). I love the shape of my body but my stomach, arms and face has gotten out of control. We are getting married next year and I am... more
I am 43 years old and had gained 30 lbs. My hormones were out of control and I felt like crap. I had had smart lipo by a plastic surgeon and he did a fair job. He rushed through it and was not aggressive. I went to Dr Locke at Wise Medical Center. He was warm and friendly and took so much time with me. He first put me on Hormone therapy, and then he did lipo and fat transfer to my butt to fill... more
Very easy procedure, took 4 and a half hours. Filled me with anesthesia from 10:20a-11:35a , than I took a nap and they came back in at 1:35p to suction me and we finished at 2:49p. Almost no pain until later that night . 24hours later my tummy and love handles were flat. I drained pretty quickly by sleeping on my sides and than on my stomach. Did not need prescription pain medicine, just... more

This Office ha d a special going on on groupon 4 areas for $1799 However I'm only getting my upper and lower abs done. many Doctors would consider that only two areas.

My surgeon was highly recommended by friends. I opted for vaser lipo of the flanks abs and lower back. I went in to the facility 2 days ago for the procedure. I was given Valium and lortab po for sedation. I was very relaxed to say the least! The doctor then filled the areas with tumescent fluid which was essentially painless. He then vasered the fat, then suctioned everything out. The only... more
