At the end of August I decided to see several doctors about having smart lipo done to my full abdominal area and back. After spending hours doing online research and seeing 3 different doctors, I decided to go with Dr.Blinski. His knowledge on smart lipo was far beyond any other doctor I had seen. He was very direct, informative & made me feel comfortable that he would do the best job possible.
I originally walked in to do only abdominal area and back in which he informed me would be done under general anesthesia since it was a large area and he could take his time working while I was out (being that i had done breast augmentation and ive been out before I did not have a problem with this, in fact it made me feel more comfortable rather than possibly feeling something or being awake the whole time). He showed me the different smart lipo machines and informed me that he would be using the latest and strongest machine out, which he was one of few of few doctors who had this device in So.Fl, he also informed me that he was a national trainer for smart lipo procedures to other doctors.
While I was in my consultation for smart lipo, I asked if it was possible to transfer some of this fat to my hips/buttocks area. He informed me that it was possible but we would have to find more fat on my body in order to do this and we would have to also do some traditional lipo in order to save the purified fat to inject into my hips. Luckily, I had some fat in my inner thighs that he would be able to use.
He did inform me that the surgery time,recovery time, and price would be a bit more but if it was something I was considering I should do it since I would already be under surgery, he also thought it would give me the best results and the best look. The difference in price was not too much and i thought it was very fair for everything i was getting done plus for the anesthesiologist and the post op massages.
During my consultation, I also asked him his opinion on my breast. I had a breast augmentation with a donut lift done in January this year but the scarring was very thick on my left breast and Dr. Blinski also noticed the nipples were not lined properly. He did not understand why my previous doctor had not redone them for me being that it was more than 3-6 months after surgery. He seemed very concerned and requested that if I did decide to do surgery with him that he would have to fix my scarring and level out my nipples simply because he was such a perfectionist. (there was no change in cost for this).
I was taken by surprised that a doctor who has been in practice for 25yrs or so still cares and has so much passion for what he does. Throughout the consultation he answered all my questions, showed me pictures of similar cases, introduced me his staff, showed me around the surgery room and explained to me exactly how everything would go the day of surgery. Dr.Blinski and his staff made my decision to go with him extremely easy.
The next day I was in office to pay and schedule my surgery for Sept.7 (they fit in as soon as possible because I explained I had an event to attend at the end of the month which I wanted to ready for, they were very understanding about this & worked hard to make sure I would be ready by then) my surgery would include traditional lipo plus smart lipo of the full abdominal area, upper and lower back and inner thighs, with a fat transfer to hips/buttocks area and corrections of both left and right areolas and lift on left nipple.
Tomorrow, it will be 5 weeks since surgery. Almost three pints of fat were taken from my body and about 220cc were injected to my hips/buttocks area. The change is conservative and settle but looks amazing, it simply looks as though I've been working out hard to my friends. The results are very natural looking.
I must say that I am healing beautifully. The entire process has been great and the doctor and staff have been very helpful. My body already looks great, swelling has completely gone down, bruises are almost all gone, incisions are all closed and healing but still have marks in which I am caring with Maderma.( incisions include two in belly button, two in bikini area/upper inner thigh, 2 outer thighs, 2 inner buttock, and 2 back where bra straps meet) My breast look like two completely different breast now, the areolas and nipples are completely even.
After surgery, I have seen the doctor at least twice to answer any questions I've had and I've gone in for massages 5 times. Dr.Blinski has been very easy to communicate with. He is very direct and will tell you exactly how it is not what you want to hear which to me is extremely good when it considers your body and making changes to it that may affect the rest of your life. I would definitely recommend him to my friends and family members and possibly see him for any future procedures I may need done.
