4/19/13 Ok went it for a pre/pre op. This meeting was schedules by the doctor to give me more knowledge about the procedure being done the highs, the lows, the ups, the downs and to see if I had any more questions or concerns. I was also introduced to the team that will be assisting him during my procedure. I was given all my perscription because some meds he want me to start taking a week before (example vitamin c and k) altough im still nervous they are very reassuring.13 Days to go!!!

This is day four and went back to work today. I'm swollen but haven't been that sore since Friday and have very little brusing. Maybe it's was the arnica I paid $30 bucks for.. I did have my first doc visit after my procedure today he says everything is looking good but it looks like I might have a saroma(I think that's how you spell) which should correct itself but if not he will fix it at 6 weeks visit. A few updated pics as you can see there is done change will hopefully be hitting the gym next week!!

Say no to Dr Oakes of Greenville Ms

Well I went in for a second smart lipo treatment and came out worse my stomach is totally destroyed I'm left with a deep line and bulge. After speaking with other doctors its was due to inexperience and the fact that people are saying he stop doing the procedure after mine is bothersome. I gave it some time to see if things would get better but NOPE I asked for a partial refund not the whole total now just a partial I think in October and haven't heard back and to think I looked better before all of this.
Dr Oakes

I decided to go with Dr.Oakes (Juvenis Health) in Greenville,Ms. He is fairly new but trained under Jeffrey B Schafer who is know as the father of modern laser lipo. During my consult he was very friendly, and answered all my question, he encourage me to think about it before making my final decision and gave me a 123 page book to read. A Patients Guide To Liposuction, How to Make an Informed Decision.
