He also offers third party financing. My procedure took about 6 to 7 hrs that's including the... more

I am 30 yrs old and I have had 2 miscarriages. I've been dealing with a lot of stress and even with the healthier eating, nothing is changing.

My self esteem is starting to take a hit and that's what got me here...

I decided to have liposuction on small fat bulges on my hips and back that diet and exercise did not seem to make disappear. I had pain (which was controlled with medication) for about 2 days following the procedure but after the second day I had marked improvement in pain and bruising. One week out from the procedure I have zero pain and very little bruising. I am back to my regular... more
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

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.

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 am a physically fit 50 year old woman who went to Dr. Colgrove to fix an abdominal lipo procedure that another surgeon had botched up. Dr. Colgrove looked at the leftover lumps and bumps and gave me an honest assessment of what he could do to help me.

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
