230 Pounds, Water & Smart Lipo Combined on Arms, Tummy, Love Handles; Unpleasant Experience - Schaumburg, IL

To keep this brief and to the point, I am 5’4, 230 pounds and decided to have the smart lipo combine with water lipo on my arms, tummy and love handles. It was recommended that I have the tummy tuck by three other surgeons. However, I decided against the tummy tuck due to recovery times and other personal reasons.

I met with Mir Jafer Joffrey, and pictures were shown to me that had my body types. Although, a few of these patients results were noticeable and shown signs of improvements, I personally thought, my results would be similar or at least shown signs of improvements. I knew I wouldn’t have a tummy tuck outcome, but overall looking better in my cloths. It is two month later and I see very little signs of improvements.

I would highly suggest someone my size and weight try to lose as much weight as possible if you decide to do the lipo. Dis honest surgeons are not going to tell you the total truth. The truth is that, even after the fat is removed, you still have to work out to the MAX to see the overall body contouring.

It is two month later and I am still sore, the procedure, I am assume went well, I am still alive, but the healing process feel like forever.

I am not sure if it is worth it, because I still have to push hard in my work out regime to see the full results, in which I probably could have done with out the lipo and just work out hard anyway to lose the fat. In any case, I am still pushing myself to lose the fat or more fat!

Mir Jafer Joffrey

After recently having a baby 8 months ago, I stayed in the hospital for 2 days. The service was excellent. The entire staff was wonderful! Can I say the same about ChicagoLipo.com Lift Laser & Body Center? No, I am schocked and surprised! I had my procedure late in the evening and I was placed under general anaesthetic, I remembered waking up, leaving the surgey room and being pushed in a wheel chair into a smaller room and being advised to put on my clothes. I don’t think I had any recovery times. I thought I should recover for at least an hour, but I felt I was rushed and pushed out the door, as it was late in the evening, close to 8pm. I feel the staff was rushing trying to get home. When I awaked from the procedure Dr. Mir Jafer Joffrey had already left the building. I personally thought that was very unprofessional, given he wasn’t there to see if I fully recovered. After about 2 days or so from the procedure, I did receive two follow up phone calls from staff members to inquire about how I was doing. However, I was never asked to schedule a follow up appointment. (I not sure, if they even do follow up appointments). But, I called a few days later to requests photos that taken of me on the day of the procedure (in which I never received), I then inquire about a follow up appointment. An appointment date was set, but I neglected to even attend the appointment because of the bad service and overall embarrassment of the total outcome of this procedure. It is so shocking that these medical professionals would provide such service. They could care less about a follow up appoitment because they knew results were not going to be noticable. I am more so disappointed in the customer services then in then the overall outcome procedure. FYI -I still get calls from the hospital were I had my baby. They call to check and see how baby and I are doing. Now that is the excellent aftercare and follow that I would like to have seen with these medical professionals.
