I have had trouble in loosing my weight since i go full time work and full time grad school. I will be getting liposuction the traditional way (general anastasia) and getting regular lipo with laser lipo to contour at the end. I have a lot of abdominal fat which I will have suctioned to include my lower and upper back (flanks), and arms. My whole core will be suctioned! Im a little nervous... more
I was recommended to Dr. Garza by a friend who had a procedure done with him and she was pleased at the results. However the procedure was not liposuction, that is what I had decided on doing. Looking back, I should have done more research and sought out someone I found a connection with because I did really did not feel great about our meeting but went through with the procedure anyway. He... more
I've been considering liposuction for years. I actually had lipo done on my abs in 2011. However, the results were disappointing to say the least. There were no visible improvements at all which have made me very skeptical of the entire process including the possibility of losing more of my hard earned money. I read many reviews and chose Dr. Gary Lawton. I've been small boned and thin most... more
Im 28 years old, very active but could never achieve a flat stomach that ive dreamed for. Ive been on the fence about lip for awhile now. I probably have read every review out there and all the reviews vary. So either this was going to be the best money Ive ever spent or the worst. I'm almost afraid that since i have big hips that my shape would turn out weird. So i decided finally to take the... more
I went to her for a consult and she advice that I was a good candidate and about how much fat she could take out. Made it seem like someone just canceled for a next day slot. Of course excited I did it. Other than pain I got nothing. The one canister hardly had any fat removed. It was mainly the medication that they push thru. I know cause I took a picture of it and showed a number of real... more
I have always been fairly active. I used to play sports a lot when I was younger. Since getting married and having a child I've kinda let myself go. I try to get to the gym as often as I can. My usual retune is to go hard core for the first month, then I kinda putter out because I don't see any results and start to feel discouraged. So It's a vicious cycle. I've made a decision that I'm... more

I went on a strict diet and lost 50 lbs. However, that great a weight loss left me with a sagging lower abdomen. The procedure and recovery was carefully and completely explained to me. The procedure involved lipo of both my lower and upper abdomen. The nurses listened to and addressed any concerns I had. I was made very comfortable during the procedure and received a follow up call from... more

I have an appointment scheduled for Aug 13 for lipo on abs, back and love handles, I would love to do my arms but do not qualify since they are in really bad shape.

When I was 6 I had a rattlesnake bite on my right foot, this changed the shape of my leg. mostly my outer thigh. This is done to get them closer to even. Done under local, at times there was pressure and a little pain, honestly not bad at all. When the pain medication wore off for about 30-60 minutes my legs felt like they had ants crawling under the skin after that minimal bruising and... more
I come from a family of women with large upper arms, also known as bat wings. After much research and consideration, I decided that upper arm liposuction was the best treatment for me. The procedure went fine and after tight bandaging, I was release to go home and rest. The next morning I woke up with a burning sensation on my right upper arm, in between the incision sites. I immediately... more
