Smart Lipo Was the Best Decision I Took! - Chevy Chase, MD

Im 25 year old and in some point I weight 185 pounds. I'm down to 145 and was looking to get rid of that big belly that I had all my life. I have a 4 year old boy and a c-section. Also I had inverted nipples which make me not like my DD breasts.

Im over 1month post cirgury and I'm very happy with results.

So when I first went to the free consultation. I...

So when I first went to the free consultation. I was interested in smart-lipo, breast lift, and breasts implants. He check me out and he told me that I shouldn't operate y breasts yet. That I should wait a few years and then do a lift. Also I complaint about a tattoo I have bellow my belly button. After asking a couple questions he said that I was the perfect candidate for a tummy tuck. I didn't think so I had been watching youtube videos of tummy tucks and that was not on my plans especially coz I was in a rush and wanted to have the lipo the same week.

I decided to have lipo in front abdomen and the sides and a nipple correction to fix those innnies. I scheduled for next wednesday. He gave me prescription of antibiotic and something else.

Then the day came and my girlfriend took me there. I had shower curtain in my purse, my iPhone and and sweat pants. Also I took the prescriptions and then. They called my name.

An asian short lady help me changed and and gave me some of the medication and got me ready.

The doctor came and started putting some injections in my belly. Then inserted a long metal thing with the anesthesia. I suppose it was tumesic-something. Well that hurts! I was ouch! ouch! as he put it i see my skin going up and me ouch! then he did that on my sides and all the area to treat.

Then he put injections on my nipples and started making a little cut on the sides. I was wide awake talking and Georgette was so nice. and I was a little high on medication and kept asking for more and more anesthesia...

Did you get your tummy tuck with Dr. Khalifeh and if so, how do you feel about your results
For Upper Malboro5539- I decided not to get the tummy tuck this winter but to do a touch up for the laser lipo. They will basically remove all the remaining fat on the area for an additional cost of 500. I just didn't wanted to go thru the down time of tummy tuck this winter.

It sounds like you were well-prepared for the recovery process. :) Thanks for sharing your experience!

The doctor was so nice he eve remove tome moles from my neck and belly. Im at home walking around and feel much better than last time I must confess. Still a lot of fluid gaming out. I got diapers! Lol! Just kidding! They gave me this big pads that absorb all the liquids gaming out. Anyways Im posting a picture of my new belly in here!. I know it will look even better after this touch up! Im so happy! And I might get a breast lift with Dr. K. I hope I could make it happen.

Im 6 days post-op and Im feeling very well, almost no bruising but constipation is bad. I take colace and take fiber every morning. Will post picture once I fully recover.
That last picture have the amount of fat removed. Im done with my belly. But Im getting the mommy make over because Im getting a breast lift with saline implants next week.
Will update soon.
thank you so much for posting your story - I'm in the same area and just beginning to look at different Drs.
What did he do to your breasts (since you said you'd do the saline Later) ? "injections on my nipples and cuts on the sides"
I'd love to change my breasts without implants (the LAST thing I need, lol) but dont know the options- a "lift"?
:) thanks sharon but that picture is the result of the smart lipo i had on the first week of june i decided to get the touch up to remove some more but as the last pocture shows it wasnt much more.

Wow, you look great! Can't believe you're only 1 week post-op.

Chevy Chase Plastic Surgeon

I went to 4 different doctors for consultation. But it was my first plastic cirgury and didn't feel comfortable with none of them. But in Dr. Khalifeh office I could see the proffesionalism on their staff. He answered all my questions, he did not tried to over sell. During cirgury I didnt stop talking cuz I was nervous so him and Georgette were so nice that I knew I chose the best. I am ready to go for Tummy Tuck in few months and I will definitely do it with Dr. Khalifeh
