I traveled to come see Dr Cannova and couldn't be happier. He is truly an expert in his field--he knew every answer to my questions, presented options and easily inspired all my confidence in him. He is an amazing surgeon and everyone who works with him reiterated that as well. Sometimes plastic surgeons come off as arrogant or aloof and Dr Cannova is the furthest thing from... more
Finally took the plunge and got lower body liposuction (ultrasonic liposuction) this morning. That includes the abdomen, flanks, inner and outer thighs, and even knees. I have a small build, but have always hated my saddlebags, no matter how much I worked out and when I weighed 120, they were still there. Always had trouble finding jeans that would fit my awkward thighs...
So this morning I... more
The staff is rude and unprofessional. Normally when you pay you get a receipt but not at this clinic. You get a receipt without the clinic's name on it, no tax id as is required in all 50 states and the irs, no procedure codes. My insurance company called numerous times to get the receipt corrected but the staff did not want to add the missing information. Consequently I was not able to file... more
I am scheduled for 11-7-2013 and I am excited. I am no stranger to cosmetic surgery. I have already had a full tt with muscle repair, lipo on my flanks, arms, pubic mons, and bra fat. This November I will be having lipo on my thighs, knees, inner calves, saddle bags, buttocks, and touch ups on the areas listed above including my abdomen.
I need some major help! For some odd reason I am... more
Liposuction has truly changed my Life. I feel more confident than ever and looking my best all thanks to Dr. Swanson.I was at a point in my life where I needed a jumpstart some sort of motivation that's where liposuction came in. After my procedure I started to notice my clothes were fitting better and I was a smaller version of myself! This was the jumpstart I was looking for. The liposuction... more
First a little background about myself. I am 25 years old, 5', about 110 lbs when I decided to get liposuction. By no means did I think I was fat, I just had a few stubborn areas that I could not get rid of. I work out 4 times a week by doing a mix of aerobics, weight lifting, pilates and yoga. My eating habits were OK -- not the greatest, but not the worst. Personally, I felt great, but... more
I had Lipo in my stomach 6 yrs ago. I weighed 110 at the time and have been a couple pounds under that since then.
I wasssss very happy with it at the time, but now I feel that its become obvious that Ive had it done. My stomach looks lumpy and uneven (although flat) but just weird in general.
I want to know what I can do to make it look normal again? HAve compression garments worked... more
I did it because no matter how much I exercised I could not get rid of the flab on my stomach, since I was out anyway though I had my breast lift and thighs done at the same time. I am then went and had a face lift (I'll write a different reveiw on that), about 4 years later; but inbetween those two things I had a small procedure.
The only thing I will say that I would change is even... more
I am a 22 year old RN that has carried the name "thunder thighs" since I was about 13. I decided to get liposuction right after graduation as a sort of present to myself. I did research on doctors and procedures and once I had decided on a location and doctor I never wavered with my decision. I didn't get much sleep the night before but I was excited for my new body!
I was... more
I had lipo of the neck three years ago. Due to genetics I have a weak jaw and chin so I had a "double chin".Unfortunatly there is an indentation under my chin that makes the jowl area on the right side of my face look very pronounced. I am extremly self conscience about this and when I asked the doctor about this he said nothing could be done.Overall the neck lipo did improve the... more
