1. Procedure was VERY PAINFUL. Felt like the fascia in my abdomen tore due to suction. After 2 weeks, still hurts.
2. Pricey ($1,400).

My Doctor: William J. Vinyard, MD
This provider was relatively close to my house and had a small practice as opposed to the big, multi-doc conglomerates in nearby Huntsville.
