Mommy of 3 boys. Had upper and lower abs done upper back and saddle bags. Not really painful at all looking into a TT

So After I saw My new doctor Sassan Alavi, He said I am not a candidate for a tummy tuck because it's all fat left over from Dr. Carli. I know there is no 100% garantie with plastic surgery but when a Doctor refuses to do touch ups and try's to talk you into a more expensive and painful surgery it's just bogus. Now I know the work he did came out pretty damn good but I this it could have been ALLOT better on the abs I guess I was one of the lucky one if you Google carli's Name you will see what I mean and how he treated his other patients just as bad as me.

I have to take back what I said about Dr. Carli being a good doctor after seeing the My other doctor yesterday He told me after I had lipo done that is what my muscles that needed to be fixed that I needed a tummy tuck.He refused to touch any areas Even after I called many times and was seen my him this other doc told me I am not a candidate for a tummy tuck at all it's allot of left over fat from his work! He's cocky acts like you don't know what your talking about and pretty much makes you feel stupid for thinking you needed touch up's done in the first place.

Thanks for sharing before and after photos. I'm thinking about doing this- but a little scared that it'll come back after. Surprised to hear that you didn't really see weight loss from the surgery?

That's really what I'm hoping as well--that I'll be super motivated to work out more once I've spent so much money and gone through pain!

Thank you LipoinPDX Not really from the lipo it's self I use to joke that he didn't take any out he just pushed it around lol I fit my clothes better after but I lost about 20 lbs after not from the lipo though from weight lifting and ALLOT of cardio after getting it done it just encouraged me to work out even more
