1 out of 5 stars Liposuction

Tummy Tuck with Flank and Chest Liposuction

I am mortified by the treatment I received from Dr. Brown. Not only am I upset with my final result, I am upset with the way he and his office treated me. I will start with my results. I've had two procedures with Dr. Brown, first was a tummy tuck with liposuction as well as fat injections under the eyes and the second was required for revisions to the first procedure. The tummy tuck was fine but the liposuction was awful. He did not even come close to removing enough fat to make my sides/chest the flatness I envisioned. Further, my flanks were uneven with one side having noticeably more fat than the other. The fat injections did not take the first round. For my second procedure I had additional liposuction of the chest and flanks. Dr. Brown assured me he would be as aggressive as possible. Again my flanks were not completely flat (see attached pictures). He told me he removed "virtually all of the fat" in them. Look at the attached pictures and you can clearly tell all the fat was not removed. It seems to me he is lying to cover himself or he is unable to tell when there is fat present. This brings me to my personal assessment of Dr. Brown. He is way too conservative with how much he removes for my liking. Multiple times he told me that if he didn't take out enough the first time he could always go back and take more. Why should someone require multiple surgeries just because he can't figure out how much is appropriate to take out the first time? Isn't that his job? Responses to my follow-up questions were not satisfactory either. Some responses took about a week to receive. Many were evasive. His staff isn't much better. One of his nurses that they like to put on the phone I find rude and condescending, seldom is a time I enjoyed (or found helpful) my interaction with her. The current patient coordinator took days to get back to me about simple things like trying to make a payment. When I finally demanded answers to my questions, after being ignored for almost a week, he wrote me that "to continue with your care, this behavior must improve", referring to my blunt demands for an answer. I don't find insinuating that care will be cut off ethical. This is the kind of response you when you want to know, after a week, why you look like a circus freak with two different sized flanks. In the pictures attached you can see more fat in one side. This is the kind of care that I have received and find it appalling.

Very friendly- made me feel at ease when I indicated I was a bit nervous.I will add photos when I can take off the garment and the swelling goes down...I'm almost 2 weeks out and I barely notice a difference. I'll get some photos up and then we'll see what you think!
