My initial surgery was January of 2009. I spent $4000 for my lower abs since I had 3 kids this became a problem area. I am 5'4" extremely active and healty but could not get rid of the belly fat.
After several months of follow up I still did not get anywhere near the results I was expecting. I had a flat uneven indentation in the middle of my lower ab with fat & swelling remaining on either side. Very disappointing.
I redid the surgery in December 2009 for an additional $500 & with very slight improvement from the initial surgery but overall a waste of money.
