Dr. Maggi is polite. All of his staff, (loved Kathy, Patti and Veronica) except for Kelly were very sweet and understanding. There are way too many negative things to say about her and how she is a liar, but I will not waste my time on her. I also cannot post for others who told me their experience with her. My surgery turned out okay. Need what they call "touch ups", but of course I... more
I've been wanting to have lipo done on my stomach for over a year now. I finally got the nerve to go through with it and I can't wait to see the final results. I had surgery on Jan 9th and a follow up appt today with Dr. Kerr. Even though I'm swollen and in pain I can tell that I am going to love the final results. more
So, I've always been thin. I'm 5'4" and had always been six three jeans or so.
As I got older. My body started to change. I started working out but could not get rid of my pooch. It just kept getting bigger. After a couple if years, I decided to get it sucked out.
I don't have any before photos at the moment. I was about 27" waist and 37" hips. I only had my abdominal a worked on.
I had on real self reading a the reviews, so finally got up the courage to go do it. I'm not going to lie I was in more pain then I expected by I was given some Vicodin in the middle of the procedure to calm me down. My doctor Lawrence Broder at Belezs Medical spa in Austin Tx and the nurse that assisted were excellent during my procedure. I in a little now but go in for a massage this. So... more
Everyday I come to this site to make sure I am making the right decision...
I am horizontally challenged and my hip circumference is making me look very heavy.. A few weeks ago I went to see a plastic surgeon to get a face lift. Thankfully, he pointed out I would get more bang for my buck to have lipo under my chin, back, stomach, hips, inner and outer thighs and knees. Has anyone had that... more
I had liposuction 4 weeks ago on my stomach, hips, upper and lower back. I had trouble sleeping because every way I tried to sleep was very painful. My doctor took out almost 5 liters of fat. Many people are comparing it to a really good workout. However, it felt like I was in labor for the first 2 weeks. Although i still have swelling, my results so far are nice but I am not sure if I would... more
I had lipo at Meridian Surgery Center with Dr Kelly Tjelmeland and I am so happy with my results. I just wish I would have done it sooner, rather than being miserable for so long with the love handles and the stomach pooch from going through menopause. I recommend Meridian to all my friends that comment on my body. more
Personal goal was to have a general reduction in the breast area as well as removal of the fatty areas behind the underarms in the back area. Was pleased with the result. Feel better in shirts and sweaters. I continued to see improvement over the course of the next 6 months. Would encourage any weight loss before procedure as i, nor should you, participate for weight loss purposes.
I didn't find any reviews for my doctor or my city, so I've decided to write my own as I go through with this procedure. My doctor is James Schlotter in San Marcos, Tx which is in the Austin area. I'm have my upper and lower abs, along with my love handles done.
The reason I decided to get this procedure done is because I have always had a problem with my tummy. Even when I was a... more
My experience was not positive although i did not follow up with additional surgery to correct disfiguring and painful scars from the liposuction several years ago. the nerve pain has subsided, but the grooves in my hips, arms and buttocks remain. i would not post but i have heard from others recently about this Dr.'s work and i hope that someone reading this continues to research and look... more
I came to Dr. Haydon for help with an unusual physical anomaly, a large mass of tissue on my neck and back that was severely restricting mobility. The mass was also unsightly and was beginning to have a deeply negative impact on my self-image.
The spectacular outcome of my procedure is already apparent, just two weeks post-surgery. more
I did a lot of research before choosing Dr. Tjelmeland. After interviewing 3 different plastic surgeons, I chose Dr. Tjelmeland based on his experience and professionalism. He and his assistant were kind and caring. I felt so relaxed and confident as I went into surgery. After the surgery .... wow! I finally have a flat stomach! Everything went fine and I look great! Dr. Tjelmeland is the only... more
Well, so far so good. I was very relieved during the procedure at the amount of pain...very, very little. Actually, when I felt a little pinch 2x's the doctor said to nurse "no, let's give her more anesthetic...she should not feel any pain". Dr Broader from Beleza Med Spa did my procedure and I would HIGHLY recommend him and his staff. They are all great.
I did experience a pretty... more
Just got through with the day after my tickle lipo procdedure I redeemed via a Groupon offer. The procedure itself was WAYYY less pain than I had anticipated. I had lipo done about 10 years ago (for gynecomastia) and felt like I got hit by a semi-truck afterwards. This procedure however, I experienced very little discomfort (actually able to text while the procedure was being done!) and I was... more
I am a avid exerciser. After turning 50, and seeing that fat around my belly button, flanks and inner thights would not go away no matter how much I exercised, I decided to have lipo done in Feb. 2011.
First of all, it hurts ALOT more than they lead you to believe, but it is bearable after a few days. I can handle pain, but it felt like I had been run over by a truck and the... more
I had facial liposuction done by an Austin, Texas (downtown), Osteopathic Dermatologist....BIG MISTAKE....He talked me into it. I am in my late 50's and my skin does not have the good elasticity it once had. The doctor tried to correct it with a S-Lift, and that was more of a nightmare. The stitches around my ears are still not healed.
It has been a year and a half, since... more
