I decided to do liposuction after a year of working out with a personal trainer and feeling results rather than seeing them. Four years ago I was very fit and athletic, even after having kids. I was a size 8-10 and didn't have any worries. When I was diagnosed 3 years ago with hypothyroidism and also had to have an emergency hysterectomy my body went crazy! The only way that I can explain... more
Well I am nervous and excited! I have a lot changes taking place in my life, so I decided to finally get some cosmetic surgery! I've considered this treatment for years and all the technology changes stopped me in the past along with confusion about which technique to do. I think my resent changes have given me the courage juice to move forward with the procedure! I seen another post from a... more
I have been considering Liposuction for about a year when I finally decided it was time. I was up in the air in the beginning just because I was not sure about spending the money on myself etc. Then I realized how much happier I would be with my love handles gone and I was sold. I had a consultation, took some before pictures and then decided this is what I really needed to do in order to get... more
To keep this brief and to the point, I am 5’4, 230 pounds and decided to have the smart lipo combine with water lipo on my arms, tummy and love handles. It was recommended that I have the tummy tuck by three other surgeons. However, I decided against the tummy tuck due to recovery times and other personal reasons.
I met with Mir Jafer Joffrey, and pictures were shown to me that had my... more
Had tummy tuck 3yrs ago and because I had muscle repair it took several months before I could do sit ups as to not damage the muscles. Therefore I got lazy got out of routine of hitting the gym and got a lil fat SMH. Now in a few weeks back to eating healthy and hitting gym 3-4 times a week it's a must!!! If anyone can relate chime in!!! My surgery was 7am I'm sooooo damn soar but it better... more
I had liposuction on my abdomen, flanks, bra rolls and saddle bags on 4/12/13. I am now 7 wks. post op and so far I am happy with my results. The first few days were a nightmare because I don't do well with anesthesia. I'm still hoping some areas go down but it's a major improvement from where I started. I still have some pain as the numbing wears off & the only downside is it's been hard... more
I am 26yrs old, 5'4, 150 pounds.I have two beutiful children. I have always wanted lipo. I would like to loose about 25 pounds, I know lipo is not a weight loose surgery. Should I loose weight first or get the lipo firts. Im so confussed and stressed out because I have no idea what doctor to go to. I have gone to see 3 diffrent dr. that claim to be the best but I dont want to rush and go with... more
I just had lypo of the ilia’s, stomach and outer thighs yesterday by Dr. Michael Damen. First off let me say, I am 15-20 lbs. to my goal weight, I work out 3 times a week (kicking and screaming since I don't have the desire to any longer). I slept all afternoon yesterday and last night. The worst so far for me has been the nausea when getting up to use the bathroom. Its morning and I am... more
I had liposuction done in the love handle area and lower stomach October 17th 2012 (I am 23 years old, 5'9" and about 155 pounds). I saw major results two days after the surgery yet as of today the love handles came back. I have read I need to wait up to 3 months for major results but the skin that is still swollen is hard. My love handle area is soft as if the swelling is done. I work out 5... more
I had Lipo several years ago and the fat has reappeared. Over all I was happy with my results, but now I'm looking to have it again, but want to consider vaser, water Lipo, or what I'm assuming was tradtional Lipo at the time. I say that because I've heard so much about tumescent Lipo (procedure used during Lipo). I really need some help or feedback from those who are of a certain... more
I had liposuction on my stomach, sides, arms, inner thighs and back of the thigh on one leg. It is an extremely painful recovery and wearing the Spanx drove me crazy but I wore them for 8 weeks after the surgery. This surgery was also a huge waste of money.
I am 5'4" and was 125 pounds before surgery. After surgery I dropped five pounds because I was in so much pain, I didn't... more
As a busy working Mother with a young child I could not get my stomach to go down and flatten pre-baby. It not only worked but was a pleasant all round experience. Not only was Dr. J kind and patient but his staff were wonderful and truly caring. That makes a huge difference when you choose to have surgery and you have that type of support to see you through more
Going to the gym everyday, changing my life style and my eating habits was just not enough. Love handles and a spare tire was not what I wanted to carry around on my thin legs and frame anymore. I knew it had to go! I went to wearing babydoll shirts to cover it up to wearing hip hugger jeans and a tank top less than 3 months after my procedure! Size 7 to a size 4 jeans!! Worth it and would do... more
