Smart Lipo is Not So Smart - Hard Lumps from Tumescent Fluid

I had smart lipo done 7 months ago. I am bumpy, hard in spot, fat spots in other places. The doctor said I would be perfect in a few weeks, with minimal pain.. Not so much- I was still in pain a few weeks later, and I would never dare take my shirt off. It looks like there is an apple pie under my skin. Husband wants to know when I'm getting it fixed. Sister had it done the same time, and is having the same problems.

Dr. said it was fluid that hardend, then it was the tumescence and it would go away after awhile, then it was scar tissue, that he wants to go and laser that away from my muscle. Had a second opinion and the doc said, I was uneven, bumpy, fat still there, and was not done properly. Sister went for a second opinion and that guy said the same thing- I would never do smart lipo again.

I wouldn't be so mad if the Dr. wouldn't have promised me the world. "You are a perfect candidate, you will look like this (and pulled out a swim suit mag), you will be fine in 2 weeks, in a bikini (and even asked for me to send him a picture). No, if you would have said, I can't promise this or that, and I can help remove most of it, but he blew smoke up my XXX.

I'm trying to get my money back, why should I pay for something I did not get. My husband and my sister's husband say's we look worse now then before we had it done...

Dr. Goldfarb

The doctor promises the world and leaves you feeling so secure in the way he does things- then after the procedure gives every reason in the book for why the procedure didn't not turn out - he even went to say it was genetic - the second opinion laughed at that answer.
