I decided to do this procedure because I have a pretty fat gut and love handles. For the most part I look normal. I'm 5'4 165. I work out religiously. However I had a baby by c section in Jan 2010 and my stomach looks like it hangs now. Also I went to work for a new job very quickly and commute up to 3 hrs a day. I would love to wear a dress, and fit better in jeans no more muffin top. My inner thighs will b done later. Was gonna do it all at once, but the dr recommended knees b done along w inner thighs for best results. So I'm going to see how this abs do.
So far I am extremely satisfied. I had the procedure done last Friday 9/23 in the evening and walked rightnout the office no pain whatsoever. No pain that night , none the next day etc.
I went to Dr menon at physicians skin and weight in Campbell ( she also has a location in sacramento). I have to say I work in the medical field selling surgery an I was very cautious / skeptical initially because of what I know. However jessika did my consult was upfront and honest, and there was no pressure theat I didn't sign up, I returned a second time to ask more questions and meet the dr. They were very accommodating and reassuring what my realistic outcome would be. Still no pressure to sign.
Anyways im so glad I had this done here. The surgery, mostly easy and uncomfortable some parts. It's hard to imagine, but dr menon, her assistant and the dr observing plus , my friend had so much fun. Lots of good convo and lots of laughs. I told dr menon I was most impressed with her ability to be very skilled in this procedure, have a very down to earth personality, and maintain professionalism.
After the procedure, the assistant squeezed out as much drainage as possible. I think this was crucial because yes I had some drainage overnight ( notyhing too major)but it was mostly done by the time I woke up. So that wasn't as inconvenient as expected. I was pretty much done draining by mid morning.
