24 and Frustrated - Great Neck, NY

Hi guys im Maria, im gonna try to keep this short...

Hi guys im Maria, im gonna try to keep this short lol. im 5'10 approx. 210lbs. I use to weigh 260+. The lowest ive ever been was 168 but I was literally eating a cracker a day I was like 19-20 at the time. so naturally I gained it all back! but as a I got older I started to go to the gym 4x a week but I could never get rid of my pudgy stomach it just hangs there! I wear my pants over it so I get that bulge and I absolutely HATE that im so self conscious about it I always have been! so I started researching and found out about smart lipo! I found Dr. Marciano in my area and she seems to have awesome reviews and her patients have great results! now the only thing I have to do is go for a consult but im scared! idk if shes going to tell me to lose weight because from what ive researched they want you to be like no more than 10-15lbs from your ideal weight! to be honest idk what my ideal weight is because at 168 I looked anorexic like because of my height, I think its somewhere around 170-175 that's when I was most comfortable besides my stomach. anyways do you guys think this would be the idea route for me? have any of you gone to Dr. Marciano are her results really as good as ive heard? I just don't want to go and have her tell me I have to lose weight because right now its hard I was injured at work back in February of this year and that's why ive gained about 15+ pounds ive lost some because im eating beter but I cant do any exercise which has me going insane! please advise!! Thank you :))

Moving along!!

Ok ladies!!! so today at 9am I went for my consult with my awesome new friend! to see Dr. Marciano and let me tell you all she is extremely lovely! she was very well informed and had detailed answers to all of my questions! Her office is quite small but i liked it for the cleanliness and homie feel it had to it anyways so let me tell you guys a little about her, she is trained and certified to do the SmartLipo and shes VERY good at it from the results i saw. She takes her time with patients she did not rush me AT ALL and let me tell you guys i had alot of "Ummmm..." moments lol we giggled and got down to talking about what had to be done. She is very honest and tells you her personal opinion about what should be done and what does not have to be! She suggests but also takes what you want into consideration she gave me the price of $4500 for my upper and lower abdomen and I was sold especially after seeing her before and after pictures. She also takes her time doing the procedure she informed me that she'll for example start at 9am and be done by 2pm so she does take her time! She will only do 4 procedures a day and I like that because i know she'll do a good job! So anyways i have not booked my procedure date yet as I am still gathering the money for the procedure but i will keep you guys updated on whats to come!! :)
