UNHAPPY Vaser Liposuction (Abdomen, Hips/flanks, & Posterior Chest - Miami Beach, FL

24 yrs old & i have 2 kids. Very anxious to get this done & also feeling lots of anxiety to the point i want to back out. Ive had a tummy tuck done before and had an awful experience. the dumb doc left extra fat on my hips. & i hope this doctors does the job RIGHT!! & Also so when i try to loose weight that are just stays and gives me no hope of loosing more weight. so ive pretty much let go of myself.

I am very nervous because im having all these areas done or even just thinking of being put to sleep makes it worst.. ahh!! Anyways i hope this goes well for me. My surgery date is next week 10/20/11.. i will post pics.

So ive got my meds ready and im like 3 days away...

So ive got my meds ready and im like 3 days away frm the big day. I am so scared by now that i might back out. Im soo freaked out. I keep feeling like i am not going to wake up frm surgery. Uggghhh i hate this feeling.. some advise... Some support.?

Can anyone tell me how they were prepared the day...

Can anyone tell me how they were prepared the day of surgery?? Did u feel nervous? Or when they put u asleep. Please details. I want to kno what i have ahead of me.. thanks

Day 2 of the surgery. The first day i was feeling great. But today im in pain. I can say frm a 1-10 i am a 5. But to get up frm the bed is the worst. Can anyone suggest how i should sleep. I am sleeping flat on my back with pillows under my feet to have my feets blood flow. Today i will be heading to my doctor to see a follow up. The only thing i am upset from my doc is that he didnt give me a the whole body garmet. He just gave me the wrap around my waist. Grrr.. well ill update photos when i can take my garmet off..

Well today is my 5th day since surgery, and i see...

well today is my 5th day since surgery, and i see no change :(

i am back at work since yesterday (im in a desk all day) and i feel much better today. anyhow the surgeon decided NOT to give me the garmet that is they first offered. they gave me a binder, grrrr.. that thing hurts.. so last night i bought myself one for much cheaper and it feels sooo darn good. maybe thats why i feel better.. anyhow, hope to see results soon or i will be very upset. i will post pics when i get home.. Thanks all for the support.

Ok day 7, NO results as of yet. i am very dissapointed. I have veryy little discomfort and its mostly in the night when im trying to sleep with a 2 yr ol spoiled toddler..lol..anyhow, i see my doc today to remove stitches. lets see what he has to say because i will def tell him how unhappy i am from besides how he jus gave me a binder and not the garmet. ill update after the docs appt.

Hi sorry i havent been updating. Just been busy at work. Anyhow, i should say that ive been feeling great! i am not sore, nor have any bruises. i AM VERY DISSAPOINTED. i weigh the same & i see no difference. Some people at work say i look thinner but its honetly the garmets compression. i have posted pics of the 7th day of surgery. i will take some tonight and post soon. THANKS GUYS!

Hey! so today i am 18 days after surgery. I called...

Hey! so today i am 18 days after surgery. I called in & spoke with the docs office. I am very unhappy about my results. i am aware that it takes time to see results but you have to atleast see something and i dont. i worked so hard to get the financing for my procedure this makes it worst. Anyhow i have an appt to speak to the doctor on Nov 14 to talk about how i feel and what they will do for me. i am no scientist but i knew that 1300 cc was NOT much & especially how little i was bruised just gave me a hint that not much was done. and i expected more than this. I will keep updating :)

VERY UNHAPPY WITH MY RESULTS FROM DAY 1. I HAVE AN...

VERY UNHAPPY WITH MY RESULTS FROM DAY 1. I HAVE AN APPT NOV 14 2011, A WEEK AWAY FROM MY CALL TO THE DOCS OFFICE ABOUT MY UNHAPPINESS. LETS SEE WHAT THEY SAY.

Hi. Well tomo is 5 weeks after the surgery. Stilll...

Hi. Well tomo is 5 weeks after the surgery. Stilll verrrryyy unhappy. I finally saw the doc on nov.17th and he said he saw a difference. But also offered me Zerona for 3 weeks for free. Says if in 2 months im still unhappy and he sees no results and agrees then he will do the vaser again and o8nly charge for anestesia... Oh man. Thats still money out of my pocket and im so upset. Now i have to go 3 weeks more wearing a garmet which is so uncomftable. I really want a result. I will post pics up frm today later.

Well next week is the last 3 treatment for zerona,...

Well next week is the last 3 treatment for zerona, STILL NO RESULTS. I will post pics when done with zerona

Ok so i was done with my Zerona on Dec23rd and i...

ok so i was done with my Zerona on Dec23rd and i am still soo very dissapointed. I dont get it. I spent 3 weeks going to this and i see no results in my pants nor shirts. They said i lost 3 inches but i dont feel it. my clothes feel the same. ive been also doing a diet/drinking lots of water and this sucks to see no results after vaser & zerona! i WANT my real results. GRRRR in the pictures below u see my before & after but i realized that in the after i wa asked to raise my arms up which my your body look more slim. i really feel like i deserve from doctor tachmes to do another vaser lipo... i see him on Jan 17th.

So Jan 17th i had my appt with Dct Tachmes about...

So Jan 17th i had my appt with Dct Tachmes about my vaser bk in 2011. Finally after Zerona and the wait, we have decided to do the Vaser again. I have to pay $500 out of my pocket to get this done. I kind of understand but then again i feel i should have received this time around free. But w.e. I really hope this time around i can be happier with my results. I will keep you guys posted with my surgery date etc.

Hi Ya! well today i have an appt with Doctor...

Hi Ya!

well today i have an appt with Doctor Tachmes to "SEE" about the conversation we had bk in Jan about doing vaser again. Im a bit iffy of whats going on and if the doc changed his mind..It was my impression by the person who was giving me the appt. she was trying to but out of the sudden she was like "oh the doc has to see you again before we set an appt because its been a while" ahhh.,,grrr

Well hello, i have a job and i cant just take off when i want too and also im a single mom who cannot afford to pull $500 bucks out of my bank account just like nothing.

So lets see what happens. My appt is at 2:15pm today..

Hi Guys again!! LOL Well im pretty happy right...

Hi Guys again!! LOL

Well im pretty happy right now. Ive scheduled my appt for the touch up! I REALLY hope this time around i def see results. I will keep you guys posted!!!!

Things are looking different.

It took me some time to see my result but the end result is good. I am happier with my shape after all. The office and doctor are very helpful and understanding. I highly recommend Doctor Tachmes and the office.
