I am 44 5"7 188lbs. I had a stubborn apron of fat filled skin from weight loss. I wanted a tummy tuck but with so much fat still in the apron which weighs about 15 pounds I decided to have liposuction to remove it to leave me enough skin to make me a tummy tuck candidate. I live in Salem Oregon and had my 1st procedure August 28th Thursday and my second procedure 5 days later Wednesday... more
I had my first consultation last week, and I'm calling tomorrow to have a couple more questions answered, and to schedule my procedure! I'm currently 23 years old, and have battled with my weight all my life. I'm 5'3" and 225lbs. :( My husband thinks I should continue to try "the hard way", but supports my decision either way. I'm not quite ready to post pics yet, but I'd love some insight... more

I had liposuction done in 2004 and I gain 40 lbs. after it. I had lap band done in 2005 and I lost 120 lbs.

I wanted to go to 155 lbs. so I wanted to give another try with liposuction.
I went to the clinic in Portland and of course... more

Had a submental lipectomy (lipo under the neck) approx 3 weeks ago. First week, unhappy - three weeks later I am loving it! Can't wait for another couple of weeks. It DOES take at least a month for you to get feeling back under your neck - I still don't have it all, but it' a very subtle procedure. No one at work has figured it out but my hairdresser thinks I had a facelift! more
I came to the decision to have lipo because I didn’t have any other options. Most women carry their 10 extra pounds in their thighs or stomach. Well, I was able to exercise that away quite easily but my ankles were chunky no matter what I did. All the exercising and running in the world (and believe me, I did it) didn’t make the fat go away.
I used to think lipo was just for... more
