Made No Difference Whatsoever

I had smartlipo last year on my stomach, flanks,...

I had smartlipo last year on my stomach, flanks, back, arms and chin. It honestly didn't make a single bit of difference.

However, I didn't research my doctor well enough, so maybe thats the reason. I didn't have an in person consultation with him because I was coming from out of town. If I had have, I'm sure I would not have picked this doctor. I don't think he removed any fat at all. I asked to see the fat he removed afterwards, and I was just shown a picture of it!

I would recommend doing a lot of research before choosing a doctor, reading reviews and talking to other patients.

Dr. Robert Burke

He is not a plastic surgeon. The whole experience felt like a scam.

I just had a consult with this dr. yesterday. I was planning on having my stomach & thighs done next month. I'm really worried now after reading your post.

Was he board certified in plastic surgery? The cost for the areas you got may or may not be in line with your geographical area...I'm not familiar with costs there. Did you seek more than one consultation? I hate to see this procedure get bad raps due to bad doctors and patients not doing research. Good luck and I wish you well.

I just had mine done yesterday, the codtor removed 4 large syringes of fat from my inner thighs, some bruising, and yes I am sore, I am curious to see how soon anyone has seen the results.

I haven't gone back to complain because I've actually lost weight since last year, just from dieting and exercise. So I'm afraid that he could say that it was the result of smartlipo. I know this is not the case since I've lost weight all over my body, not just the areas that I got smartlipo, but I'm sure he would say otherwise. He did tell me that he used suction, but I don't even know if he was being honest.

if it didnt make a bit of difference why didnt you go back and tell him you were unsatisfied? he should of at least given you some compensation if there was really no change at all! i would be angry and would of demanded some more be done or some money back. did he do suction too?
