Close to four years ago I lost a significant amount of weight (280#). Now I am left with an abundance of loose skin that no amount of working out or building muscle will fix. After in-depth research I have decided to have the following procedures: lower body lift, arm lift, breast lift / augmentation, inner thigh lift, but lift, full face/neck litf and vaginoplasty. To date, I have had consultations with four local plastic surgeons. A year and a half a ago I decided on Dr. Sephar Egrari, a PS in Bellevue. I chose him after meeting one of his patients. This lady looked amazing!! Six months prior she had undergone all (except the vaginoplasty) procedures after also losing around 300#. She was even my age (49), height and general build. She was kind enough to show me her before and after surgery photos, the results were impressive! There were no photos of the 'butt lift" or from behind, she said she had not asked for them "...because the doctor said it takes a year for the final results - and my butt is still pretty sad". She did not seem overly concerned. I wasn't either - made sense to me- and the rest of her was amazing. She truly looked fifteen to twenty years younger than the 'before photos'. I decided right there and then to have her surgeon be my surgeon.
Last week I ran into this lady at the gym and I couldn't help but notice that her neck seemed to have 'loosened'. Not terribly so, but noticeably so. When I inquired about the progress of her butt, she told me she would need to repeat the lower body lift. She brushed it off by explaining that it wasn't her surgeons fault, but just one of those things! Truly? Later a mutual friend told me this poor lady not only needed to have the lower body lift redone, but her inner thighs, neck and arms - AND needed an additional procedure called an upper body lift done now! Worse still, the doctor is going to charge her additional fees. This does not seem right to me! This poor lady has essentially found herself back at if not square one, no where near having successful results.
Is this the normal result? Does anyone out there have a more successful outcome? A surgeon who gets it right the first time? Photos would be appreciated if possible along with the surgeons name and contact information.
Thanks for reading my post, any advice would be appreciated!
