Love My Results Liposuction & Bbl - New York

I did my research from DR to Mexico and ended up right back In Nyc to Dr. Filstein on Madison Ave. I thought about the risk I was taking with my life overseas and it didn't worth it, plus if you had any complications you would still have to get it fix here in the USA. Dr.Filstein was amazing he did liposuction plus fat grafting to my butt plus remove fat between my legs and the fold of my arm for that price , impressive. I love the job it's been 2 1/2 weeks now and I can see a great difference. My waist line is much smaller my butt is round but natural looking. I must say the healing and as been very good for me. I was able to walk my dog on the 4th day of post my surgery. The problem which I have is the sitting part which is very annoying but I am going to be sitting on it in the 3rd. Week.
New York Plastic Surgeon

Dr. Filstein is very humble and polite, I love the fact that he is not money hungry like these other surgeon's here in NY. The staff very professional and friendly

I have a few ?'s if u don't mind... Y do u "leak/drain" after surgery? What exactly is leakin out? U mentioned that he quoted u $4500 but I saw that he quoted others $8500... Does that depend on the amout of fat taken n replaced? How soon after ur initial consultation did u have the surgery? Was there a long wait time ?

The drainage is caused by the fluid they put into you while on going the liposuction procedure. It took 2 days for it to stop. I'm not sure why he quoted others that price but it depends I guess on your body type and the amount of work he put in because I got some ridiculous price from Dr. Tehrani, Dr.Solomas and Dr. Shahine which I wouldn't recommend due to how is facility is being run like a public hospital even worse. I Had The Consultation A month before surgery

you look amazing so how is your skin after having lipo done i am worried that i will have saggy skin i am also having a bbl done in july
  • Reply
My skin is firm, the only thing I noticed which they said is normal is lumps in my stomach but they said it will disappear with time. My girlfriend who did the same procedure said so as well

Ok cause I have a pouch in a lil stretch marks I really don't want to get a tummy tuck ugghh
  • Reply
I Had A Pouch To But It Depends On How The Elasticity Of The Area. I had the same fear but surprisingly when I take the compression garments of my skin looks great. I don't know if because I was exercising before my surgery help because when they liposuction the fat my stomach muscle was firm underneath so I am able to see it a little now. If you are pretty active in the gym before the surgery I think it makes the healing process better after the surgery

Ok ya my doctor said I might not need a tummy tuck if I wear gurment & compression board for 8 weeks I hope so I don't want a tummy tuck smh
  • Reply
so can you sleep on your side after surgery I am planning on having my hips done me laying on my side is that going to mess my hips up
  • Reply
Yes it will mess it up because the fat cells need to be attached to a blood vessels and the compression on sleeping on your side will definitely interrupt it. I do sleep on my side and my stomach but it's not 100% comfortable either because I do feel a little discomfort

Looking great keep us posted , I want to do this procedure as well.

Most definitely @jjbeloved13, I will put my 1 month update so far I am healing great. The only part That's annoying is not being able to sit due to the bbl. I am giving myself 3weeks

What a great job and price. How much was removed?
  • Reply
Dr. FILSTEIN said 1 gallon of fat, which is a lot.
  • Reply
