I have recently decided to have surgery so that I can feel better about myself & look better in my clothes. I've been to 4 different doctors & they all told me that I should get a tummy tuck because I will get the best results. While I do agree with them I decided to get liposuction instead because I can't afford to take the time off work for the recovery process. I am a full time single... more
Bad idea. Instead of a lil buldge now I have extra skin that I really don't think will retract. I have a kind of bat wing now under my arm toward my back. He ran the lipo into the back area somewhat. More on one side than the other. Now I have two very different sides back there squishing out at my bra line on top. One is full and looks pretty normal, the other is a skin flap. I have already... more
I am going for outer thigh lipo with Dr. Markmann in 8 days (Feb 3, 2014). He said it would be a little over a liter total removed. So this isnt a *major* surgery, but I have never had any plastic surgery before so I don't totally know what to expect as far as recovery. I am basically expecting the worst so hopefully it wont be that bad! haha. I am nervous as anyone would be I'm sure, but also... more
I am so please so far.. Well worth the money. Still have some swelling but its been going down.. Looks like I'm going to be very happy with it. Still a little sore right now also. After procedure, woke up and was out the door in 45 minutes. He 's a good doctor. He also performed a mommy make over on my wife which changed her life for the absolute better. She looks so sexy. more
For those looking into upper arm liposuction, I would recommend the procedure. Be aware that there are drawbacks (I’ve traded pudgy arms for a bit of loose skin) but I am still pleased with the decision nonetheless. The recovery isn’t that bad, especially if you have a week or two to take it easy (and someone to help you if possible). I’m glad I did it! more

I had liposuction of my lower abdomen and flanks. Results look good after 3 weeks, and all bruising has disappeared. There is still a fair amount of swelling, which I expect will continue to go down over the coming weeks.A few weeks ago, I had liposuction performed on my lower abdomen and flanks. I believe the compression garment was too tight. At my one week follow-up, my doctor told me... more
I am writing on behalf of my sister.
On Nov. 10, 2008 at noon time she went for her procedure under general anesthesia. She had flanks, inner/outer thighs, abs done. When she awoke from the anesthesia she was in the worse pain of her life (like being skinned alive). The staff and doctors wouldn't allow her to take any pain medication until a certain time slot ( she was... more
I had lipo of my inner and outer thighs, back, subbra roll, and back of my arms and a full tummy tuck at the same time. I did this mainly because my stomach was beginning to pouch over a previous scar from surgery. My plastic surgeon recommended certain procedures and I also requested specific areas for the lipo.
I did a lot of research on the web and other doctors’ sites. I knew the... more
After giving birth to four lovely children and watching my stomach yo-yo back and forth, no amount of exercise or weight loss could get rid of the little pouch I had developed in my lower abdomen. Once my husband and I made the decision not to have any more children, I talked him into liposuction (not the other way around)!
I was awake but had local anesthesia for the liposuction.... more
