After reviewing several doctors and going on 6 consults, I researched all info on the procedure I wanted, and the doctor to perform it. Artistic Lipo of Tampa / Dr. Thomas Su was FANTASTIC!!!!! His staff was kind and caring about my concerns and MOST of his staff has had work done BY DR. SU... That said VOLUMES to me...because they looked great and STILL worked for him. I choose to have 2 areas done and some of his staff had the same areas done and were able to help me feel more secure in my decision:
1) I have had a double chin for YEARS , but just recently it had gotten to the point that I refused to take any photos or look in the mirror.
2) My Private area- I had a tummy tuck years ago and had a mound of UN-even fat below the scar line...it made clothes look weird and it was time to have that repaired.
I was very nervous and apprehensive about being AWAKE for lipo ( tumescent). I was worried about the amount of pain i would feel during.....and to my surprise... I HAD NO PAIN! I had a few moments where I felt a very minor twinge but it was quickly gone. Dr. Su took his time and was gentle but thorough. I have been taking Arnica Montana ( herbal) and my antibiotics and have almost no swelling 3 days out and I have no bruising at all! I am wearing the compression garment around the clock and my follow up was today... the TINY incision sites have closed already.
