This is quite funny that u would say this lipo suction isn't created for weight loss it's to tighten whatever u can't accomplish in the gym as in u still have to work out eat correctly and maintain what u paid for! If u never hit the gym after the surgery u will gain ur belly back it's only natural!
And if you had a hard time after surgery why give out your dr info???? I'm surprised ppl asked lol!
Dr Pedro

My experience with this dr was amazing he was like a brother her came in the room and explain what he think will work with my body type her made me feel so freaking comfortable its amazing the only thing that was bad was the staff at the hospital they had the biggest attitude and after surgery when you need them the most they made you feel like you shouldnt dare ask for help they cuss in spanish and though i didnt know but what they didnt relize was you always lean the curse words the dr assistant took care of that problem she reported it to the head of the hospital and the lady herself came down and took a report and said sorry for that
