I wanted my waist back and more contour to my body. Exercise was just not giving me the kind of results I desired. So I decided to try the liposuction, which turned out amazing! I am only two weeks out from the surgery, my weight is done, but the best part is I am already down 5 inches in my waist. more
After breast feeding three great babies and the weight fluctuations that go along with pregnancies, aging, and life in general I came to the decision it was time for a " tune up". I consulted two Doctors before Dr Stoeckel. The cost of the surgery I requested was similar at all three consults so this really did not contribute to my decision. What really made the difference was how kind and... more
I went in to see Dr. Miller in April of 2014 and after speaking to him and interviewing several different plastic surgeons I decided that Dr. Miller was the best fit for me. My procedure was in May. The procedure itself was kind of a blur even though I was awake for the whole thing. I was sore for a few days after and then had to wear a garment afterwards. But I was back to work training... more
21 days seems like forever, but I am patiently awaiting my turn to improve an area of my body that adipose tissue (fat) seems to gravitate to - my BACK! It's quite unattractive, the multiple layer of rolls. I am so ready to NOT have to tug on the back of my shirt to make sure it is not caught up in a roll on my back. My expectations are realistic and I am praying and hoping for a huge... more
I would do my surgery again in a heartbeat! First, Dr. Morea's staff were all so wonderful - confidential, professional, helpful, accessible, available for any questions and so very very nice! Dr. Morea himself was also very professional - explained the procedure in detail and recommended only the work that I needed done. He never made me feel uncomfortable, but, on the contrary, as though I... more
I absolutely love the way I feel when I look in the mirror today and I'm only 5 days post-op! Seriously. I have always had "points" on my hips and never felt 100% confident or comfortable in my workout clothes, skinny jeans, etc. I always saw POINTS in my reflection in the mirror. This will be my 2nd procedure with Dr. Morea and his staff and couldn't imagine going anywhere else. What... more
I had liposuction of the flanks,lower abdomen, inner and outer thighs. I had saddle bags and a muffin top. I saw immediate results and now I feel more confident. Dr Pyles syaff is awesome! They make you feel comfortable and safe in their hands. Dr Pyle has one of the warmest bedside manners I have ever encountered and he did a great job. This was the best thing Zi could have ever done for... more
I've have disliked the appearance of my thighs, since as long I can remember. I've dieted as most have on this site, and have seen great results. unfortunately they overall size would get smaller but the stubborn pockets of fat and disproportionate fat still exists. After a bout with Cool Scultping, (which does not work if you have really stubborn fat or a lot of it). I just decided to bite... more
I can't say enough about how wonderful my experience was at Plastic Surgical Center of North Raleigh. Dr. Christopher Morea is very knowledgeable not only about the medical aspects but also about what to expect with my recovery. I had a lot of severe repercussions from previous liposuction procedures done by other plastic surgeons in the Raleigh/Chapel Hill area. Dr. Morea was able to repair... more
I’m 22 years old, no children, and my weight generally fluctuates between 118-122 pounds. I graduated from college last year and now work as an accountant. Sitting at my desk all day has really taken its toll on my figure. My weight has stayed about the same, but now there are small pockets of fat in my inner thighs, lower abdomen, and upper arms. My diet is near perfect, but my biggest... more
At 62 years old with a huge stomach area, fat back and large breasts, I knew weight loss was not going to make a difference for me...even if I could lose the weight-which I doubted with my frame of mind! Just meeting Dr. Law made me feel that this procedure would change my life...and it has. Dr. Law took time with me to make sure we were both in agreement of the possible outcome. I feel like... more
I wanted to look better overall I had a tummy tuck 10 years ago and needed some stubborn fat taken care of around the hips lower abs and under bra fat Dr Pyle discussed the right option for me and what to expect with each procedure I have to say I love the way my body looks !he was right on target with the downtime and the healing process more
Before this lipo. surgery I was unable to wear a bra that was comfortable and clothes that would properly fit my upper body due to back fat development after a previous breast reconstruction surgery. I was going to have another breast surgery to decrease the implant size. However, after a consultation with Dr. Stoeckel, I realized that the breast size was not the problem. This additional... more
I was 29 when I got lipo done, I wasn't overweight but have 2 kids so there was just some areas that needed help. I had my lower abdomen, posterior and lateral flanks, and inner thighs done. The only difference I saw was that I did loose like 2 inches in my waist but my shape was still the same, he didn't smooth or shape anything and left a lump in my inner thigh (guess he missed it) and a... more
I am only three weeks in since my surgery and I can see huge results! I used to have huge love handles and a little gut that drove me insane. Most of my swelling has gone away except for a minimum amount. Even three weeks later I can see what my final results will be. I am now experiencing the hard lumps in my stomach, which is normal. My scarring from the entry sight is almost gone! I am... more
It’s hard remembering that back in the day I was Captain of my cheerleading squad. It’s even more difficult to remember that I was the one they’d throw around in basket tosses and atop our pyramids. I remember thinking, “Gosh, I’m so thankful I’m not the one on the bottom!” I also used to dance competitively in high school and college. Now, the thought of trying to squeeze... more

I'm 46 years old, never had children and struggled with my weight most of my life. In about a month I'm going in for liposuction for my stomach, flanks, lateral chest wall (bra overhang) and thighs. I hope to do this once, so I might as well go big! Lipo was never on my radar, but I'm not embarrassed to say I need a little help with shedding the fat.
I eat well for the most part but I do... more
