Well, here goes nothing. Throughout my life I always have had a flabby middle section, and large love handles, which makes me look square. This is hereditary from my moms side. I have always been insecure about this part of my body, and envious of woman who have flat bellies. My friend went ahead and got a tummy tuck/lipo/breast lift last August, and I have watched her throughout this... more
Dr. Hargrave is the best plastic surgery Dr. By far. He does amazing work, has great bedside manner and makes you feel comfortable all the time. He truly listens to your concerns and answers all your questions. I have had amazing results and would recommend this procedure to anyone that feels uncomfortable with some extra pounds. It takes a few days to recover and time for swelling to go... more
I had my liposuction done on various areas of my body. Dr Schingo did a wonderful job! I was very pleased with the outcome and the explanation of the procedure as well as the follow up care provided. He is an amazing surgeon truly an artist. He can help you make your vision a reality!! I would not let anyone else do my surgery!! more
I first saw Dr. Deluca when I Google plastic surgeon in upstate NY. I came across a confident looking man who reminded me of the plastic surgeon from the show "the Doctors". When I met with Dr. Deluca, He was very knowledgeable, kind and warm(and so was his staff). After examining me, Dr. Deluca suggested a tummy tuck along with the liposuction for a neater appearance, without much of an... more
I had what I call multiple chins and was very self conscious of this. I went to see several plastic surgeons in the Albany area and they not only wanted to charge too much but also do way more than needed to be done. When I saw Dr Deluca he was very informative of what I actually needed and why. And the best part was his pricing. If I new that this type of service and professionalism was... more
I had a TT in October of 2012 and decided to put off the Lipo (hips, saddlebags that extend slightly under my butt, too). I think I am going to like that I have done this in two steps... The TT recovery was tougher than I expected since my "fleur de lis" incision opened up a little since I had a bit of seroma... I had more fat than skin, so I was advised ahead of time that it could happen so I... more
Excess neck (under chin and around jaw bone) aged me
Well Im 52 this year and Im in pretty good shape. Im 5' 5" and 167 lbs... so Im not skin and bones but im not obese either. Back fat and mid section are really what ails me.... If you saw me walking down the street you would not think " that girl needs to lose weight."... and that's just the thing, the few extra pounds I do have tend to... more
There were certain parts on my body that I couldn't loose the weight on, no matter how much I worked out. My liposuction procedure turned out far better than I had ever expected.
At the time of my surgery I was 30 years old and in fairly good shape. I'd always had an issue with the size of my upper thighs and lower stomach. Going to the gym didn't seem to make a difference... more
I am 5-5, 126lbs and work out on a regular basis: weights, running, etc... But genetically, I always carried weight on my thighs and butt. I finally decided to have liposuction of my whole thighs after careful review and consideration. It was one of the best decisions I have ever made.
I have ZERO regrets. My doctor was fantastic, and he did an excellent job, but I did pay more than other... more
