Im having Tumescent Lipsuction on my upper & lower abs, flakes,love handles, lower bra roll, upper bra roll this Friday and Im a little nervous and a little excited.I choose Dr. Carter because I was impressed with his work, and after talking to him over the phone , I decided to make and appt. to see him. So far I have had my initial evaluation ,my lab work done,and fitted for my garment.I haven't saw many post here from the Atlanta area so I decided to post my experience. I will post before and after pictures, and keep you guys updated.

Ok it's been almost a week since I had my procedure , Im doing pretty good now, I must admit that it was alittle painful. On the day of my procedure everything went well ,All except my custom garment was to big,Per the doctor,which by the way was ordered 3 weeks earlier by his staff, I guess they got my measurements wrong, And they where told to reorder me a new one.Orther than that everything went great, I really don't remember much I was really drowsy and all I wanted to do is go home and get in my bed. Day 2 I felt very sore and I was very swollen , The follwing Tuesday I had a follow-up appt. whick I had my first Massage Therapy was was a little painful but very helpful, and I received my new garment which fit very snug,I instantly start feeling better after the Massage Therapy and the right size garment. I will update again in about a week.

Looks great! It's good to see women of other ethnic bac kgrounds on here. I had traditional Lipo in 2005 and want to do something different with less down time.

Your so welcome !!!He does a great job!!! Did you get a chance to look through his before and after pics? I called around to other doctors first but it was something about Dr. Carter , I knew I wanted him to do my procedure, he called me and answered my question personally ,he did'nt pressure me at all . This one Dr. Office I called for a consult, which I wont name was pressuring me over the phone to get Lipo and a fat transfer I told her I was not interested in that and she said you dont want all that fat to go to waste. She didn't even know my size!!! Which was a major turn off , so I did'nt want to schedule anything with that office. But good luck .
