Prior to getting lipo suction performed I had all these questions, concerns, fears etc. I am not the one that would usually comment and post anything online because of the high regards I have for my privacy. The reason I am doing this is for two reasons; one being that I want to help the many woman that are considering doing the procedure and number two is because I am not the most patient person when it comes to something that I paid for so I will be using this as a means to buy some time to heal and keep my mind on the positive.

They said that you are what you think and you attract what you think about. I believe that I went to one of the best surgeons in south florida and that he has the same meticulous eye that my friends say I have.

Ok where do I begin? Let’s see. I am a black woman in my late twenties who has suffered all her life with the “pear bottom” dilemma. My waist has always been small compared to my relatively large bottom; large thighs, butt and wide hips.

My Measurements
Weight: 175lb
Height: 5’5 or 5’6
Waist: 29 1/2
Hips: 46 1/2
Thighs: 28 1/2 and 28

My Surgery was scheduled for June 24, 2013.
Areas to be worked on:

Interior Thighs
Exterior Thighs
Posterior Thighs
SurgiWire to my Buttocks for Cellulite Removal
Dr. Sam Gershenbaum

Go Ahead I will be happy to reply. I actually am not the one to review anything but seeing how stressful looking for a doctor can be, I decided to do this. I do not recognized that Dr's name but will be happy to help in anyway that I can. I have other post that I will submit as soon as I can. I basically wrote in my journal from time to time and have to transfer the information over. I cannot believe its been 4 months since going under the knife. I don't even have any piercings or tattoos so I am still shocked that I actually went through something like this. LOL..smh

Is lipo the only thing u had done?

Yes Lipo is the only procedure that I had done. Due to the number of areas that were being treated (6 areas) I would not think it wise to do anything else. I am interested in having a breast lift and augmentation done but cannot make any decision about that until my 6 months of recovery are up. As you can imagine, any type of surgery performed on the body has its own set of risks and what I am trying to assess at the moment is whether the pro s outweigh the cons. So far its looking like I am going to have to go in for some revisions. My advice that I will give to anyone at the moment is to stay away from Lipo if you don't have a significant amount of fat in any of your problem areas. Diet and exercise will be your best bet. I will post my before and after pictures very soon.
