6 Weeks Post Arm and Back Lipo

What went wrong?
What should I do?
2 months post lipo looks worse.
Please help!
NOTE: he did tumescent liposuction as well as ProLipo
assisted laser liposuction. He said he removed almost 2 pounds. The goal was "no more roll". I'm just trying to understand how it could actually look worse. Did he not take the fat out? ..or did it just sink lower? ..there was much scraping/pushing hard of tissue in the process (fibrous back) ..is this protocol? ..does it ruin connective tissue? would another technique have been better? I'm trying to understand how this happened. Was told "It went perfectly, you won't need touch ups ..you should see difference at 1 month" ..it is now 2 ..so I am scared. What do I do? It was more expensive than anything I've seen ..I wanted to go to someone that would do a good job ..he said he costs more because doing this so long ..what happened?

Now it has been 3 months. I have not been...

Now it has been 3 months.

I have not been given an explanation as to what happened and was asked to just keep waiting despite no changes since day 1 post lipo ..looks worse than before I arrived and the scars on my sides (not shown here) are the darkest and most obvious ..now I have to hide my body and hope they go away.  This is so sad. :(

Did it to get rid of back roll and have thinner arms. Would not bother again.

VERY expensive! ..although is it too early to tell? It has only been 6 weeks so far. The procedure itself when they inject fluid was kinda painful ..minimal pain after the procedure itself. NO change so far ..looks a little worse and was very expensive ..right now wishing had just rid of it through diet ...unless I can expect more significant changes? ..not too sure.

The doctor FINALLY didn't say "you look...

The doctor FINALLY didn't say "you look great", but agreed it looks the SAME/WORSE ..after I had my medical file and pictures and after his staff has seen them too. He is not willing to redo and only offered to refund $2500 despite agreeing that it looks the same. He blames my skin ..which he had said was superb and extremely springy ..and it did go back to the same shape just 2 weeks after procedure proving that he was right ..and you can also still grab inches of fat because it is fat not skin ..so for him to say it was skin elasticity when no fat was removed and my body perked to what it was after the trauma so quickly ..in addition to him agreeing I had great skin (even the staff were saying that during the procedure) ..is ridiculous. This is very disappointing. Can anyone recommend a doctor? Thank you.

3 months since lipo now and WORSE. I think the fat was not taken out ..only thing that makes sense. What do I do? Should I go with new doctor? stay with same? Get money back? What to do? I waited things out before posting a name ..no help toward fixing this yet and all of you are asking who ..so I guess it's time to post it. All I am being told is wait 6 months. I was considering him redoing ..mistakes do happen ..I received my medical file today and read his notes stating he thinks he did a great job and I don't acknowledge it so now I see he is more concerned with covering tracks than dealing with things honestly and ethically ..so what do I do now? Can anyone recommend someone that will do a good job? Hard to trust now.
