I have to say it's been 6 month since my surgery, and I have to say I am NOT happy at all. Very disappointed.
There is no contouring in my arms what's so ever! My inner thighs haven't changed one bit, they actually look worse. My confidence has gotten worse. I gave it 6 months and I hate my results.
Don't waste your money !
I wish my inner thighs looked better
If anyone has info or... more
Hi everyone! My TT was 3 months ago and it was a great success. There were a few ups and downs but time was needed to see clearer results. Now that the swelling from Lipo of my back and flanks has subsided I can see that I could benefit from a little more Lipo of my back lower flanks. Also I realize I should have gone with my doctors recommendation of Lipo to the hips/outer thighs during my TT... more
I can't believe the day is almost here and I'm so excited. I'll try and post my before pics later so you can see my problem areas. I'm having my arms, bra roll and the rest of droopy rolls on my back done. I'm still a "fluffy" girl and only looking to help improve my overall look. I believe that can be achieved with some contouring.
Ok, I'm going to make this quick because I've just been... more
Five years ago, while going through a divorce, I decided to get my floppy, empty, nursed for many years breasts "fixed". I never wanted to look too large. I went with 250ish cc .. But since it was over the muscle, they just were too fat looking for me. So...here I was five years later finally gutsy enough to go through the more painful procedure to get even smaller, "safer" "gummy bear"... more
I have always toyed around with the idea of cosmetic surgery but always thought I was vain or that others would perceive me to be vain. But have been so supportive of others. Well I saw a groupon and felt that it was within my reach. I wasn't looking for a six pack or looking to wear a bikini (I have stretch marks, besides one pieces are sexier) just want to feel better in my clothes and not... more

Lipo or lipo with mini lift?
I have had large upper arms my entire adult life and would love to be able to feel comfortable to wear sleeveless or strapless tops/ dresses. Arm size is hereditary (thanks mom) and I am within 10 lbs of my goal weight and don't want the full brachioplasty scar. Any great PS experienes in IL w lipo and/or mini lift with anxillary incision well hidden? more
I'm 36 and wanted to get a head start on some physical appearance deficiencies.
I was nervous at first but the procedure lasted approx 3hrs and wasn't painful. There were a few pin prick feelings here and there but not painful. On a scale of 1-10 for pain I'd put the procedure at a 2 (extremely low.).
It's two days post op and the discomfort is still present when sitting up from bed but... more
I have always been in good overall shape... But after 3 natural childbirths, my belly fat seemed like it was here to stay... Diet and exercise weren't working, so I started to consider other options... That's when I came across realself and Dr. David Ross... I setup my consultation, and Dr. Ross told me I was a good candidate for either a tummy tuck or liposuction... I went with the less... more
I was considering CoolSculpting for my flanks top but was skeptical about its effectiveness on this particular area. The fat here is pretty firm and I don't think the machine would suck it in nicely.
I got a sweet deal for tickle lipo (50% off) and decided to go for it. I would discourage anyone from choosing a doctor based on price though. It is an invasive procedure not a mani-pedi and... more
Hello RS ladies! I am a single mom of 3 and a full time nursing student currently going through my consultation series with Dr. Petrungaro in Munster, IN. After 3 c sections and a hysterectomy in 2013 at the age of 28, my body has gone through many changes. Unhappy with how it looks, I started stalking RealSelf 2 years ago and no, I am ready to take that step to do something for myself for a... more
After years of research, I've decided to have my procedure done with Dr. Shifrin, one of Chicago's top Board Certified Plastic surgeons. This is something I've wanted to do for a very long time. It is scheduled for March 2, 2015 and I'm so nervous!
I used to be active years ago when I was in the military and just got lazy and started gaining weight after I left the Army. I put on quite a bit... more
Ok, so this is the second time I have scheduled the procedure, because I was down out right scared to do it. Have been contemplating it since last year which is when I had my first consultation. I will be doing lower and upper abs and love handles. Don't know why they are called love handles cause I hate them. Some of my fears were "Am I to old? Am so nervous! What if it doesn't work? Too... more
I have always wanted to be that skinny girl since I can remember. I have been on here reading reviews and i thought hmm...lipo!?? So I researched and researched and just boom! Decided to get it done, I had my surgery the day after Christmas! I am trying to be the prettiest bride I can be... hope!? I went through with the procedure which was the scariest thing in the world. I am about 4 days... more
I have been considering lipo for so long and finally did it. My only regret is not doing it sooner. I consulted with 3 different doctors and read hundreds of reviews online. I decided to go for a consult with dr brian braithwaite after reading 5 star reviews on yelp. He was so nice and made me feel so comfortable. I knew I was going to go with him withing minutes of meeting him. He spent... more
I had always been a chubby child and never had a flat stomach as a teen or adult. I went from a sedentary lifestyle in college to running 6 miles a day, 6 days a week while I was in law school. I got down to a shredded muscular 138, but because of my pear shape I had zero boobs. Despite my shredded physique then, I still had a small lower belly pooch and a pocket of fat on my anterior... more
I am 45 years old and have been struggling with my weight all my life. It was even harder being diabetic. After two kids, I have always had huge tummy that come and go depending on what diet I am on. I thought about tummy tuck but didn't do it because of possible complication and recovery time. After losing 16 lbs, I decided to get a liposuction. My friend recommend me Dr. Mussat. I... more

I have a muscular frame and work out. It made no difference how hard I trained, I could not get rid of the tire around my middle and back fat. So I bite the bullet and had liposuction performed by Dr. Mussat 7 weeks ago. Great results so far as I am still healing.
I did not need pain medication after I returned home from the procedure hours later. I also had minimal leakage day one and... more
Hi, I'm April and I received lipo on my upper and lower abdomen on July 23rd 2014. I had a wonderful experience. My procedure was done by the wonderful Dr. Omeed Memar. I had a great experience with him and his staff from the first day I met them. My scars are closed and heeled and it's only been three weeks since my procedure. My pain post lipo was not that bad so I stopped taking the pain... more
