Well, I wish I could say good things, but I can't. It's my own dang fault too. I should have done research and made better choices on the doctor I chose. I believe my doctor is new at this and has basically been practicing on people like myself. I am not a large person (136lbs at 5'5), but being that I am 39 and have had two kids (one a very large baby), I had gained a little bit in the tummy, back, thigh and knee area. I also had a little bit of fat under the chin (very little, but I am very much a perfectionist).
ANyway, had my upper and lower tummy + love handles done August 2009. I did not take any sedatives, just sucked it up and had it done. He removed 900cc's. After 4 months I could clearly see some left in the lower tummy and the love handles remained untouched basically. He offered to do a touch up for $1000. I figured since I was going in anyway, I would get my inner thighs and knees done a little too. Well, I went in and he ran out of time and I had to come back for the other areas missed - not too excited about ANOTHER session of this. Anyway, in the last session he offered to touch up the chin too.
In the end, i have indentations on my tummy, cords in my neck that have popped out that weren't there before the chin lipo plus waves and serious indentations inside my thighs and knees. I could cry. I haven't gone swimming once this summer with my kids and how do you explain to them that you are so dang vain that you ruined yourself doing something like this procedure. It's so disheartening. He has offered another touch up, but I am probably going let it go and be disfigured for life. I can't imagine going in and looking worse than I already do and that is a serious risk I believe I would take with this doctor. It's a shame. I saved up for this little mommy makeover and now I am paying the price.
