My Surgery with 4 Areas Liposuction and Breast Augmentation - Tampa, FL

I looked around at Plastic Surgeons for about a year since I knew I had to have the best Dr for my liposuction and to redo my breast augmentation from 13 years ago. I finally found the right Dr I was comfortable to do the 4-5 hour surgery.His office is very nice and private- the girls are very nice and helpful when talking to them.

I was feeling great after 3 nights and out of the house in 5 days walking around showing people. My friends and family thought I would be in bed for weeks with the amount of surgery I had. I only took a few pain pills for the first 2 days since there was not much pain. I was amazed I did not have much pain.

Dr Rieger is very easy to get a hold if you call his office after hours and a caring -compassionate nice man while being very professional. He is very careful and very good surgeon.The surgical center is nice and the people make you feel comfortable. I was very scared that morning to do this surgery. It would have been better if I slept that night it is not good for your blood pressure. All the nurses loved him there and told me I had the best Dr.A nurse there also had him do her surgery - she told me she trusted him with her life.

After a month I could see dramatic results and now at 3 months the results are even better than I hoped for and I will continue to improve. I am glad I was careful and choose Dr Rieger for my surgery.

Dr Riger is very personable and a caring man.

what areas did you get your lipo?

Glad your revision went well. Congratulations! Did you get new implants or did you do breast fat transfer? Sounds like you had a smooth recovery. Were you experiencing problems with your 13 year old implants?

HI, Thank you.New implants and bigger than the first ones but not too big about a 36D.I was 36C. :) No pain but they did deflate so I was happy to see them back.

Ah, I see. Glad you have your implants back. Did the old ones deflate suddenly or was it a gradual process over time? Did you have saline or silicone? How about this time?

I really noticed the past few years they went down- they were saline.The new ones are silicone. I like the new ones better even though the saline did look natural and good when they were full. : )

Interesting. I wonder if a slow leak in older saline implants is common. I wonder how much different it is to get mammograms with silicone versus saline? Perhaps you're not at that age yet! ;)

They were a slow leak and not totally deflated.I was still wearing my (36c bra) but I could also wear a 34 d at one time. One was more deflated than the other the surgeon told me. I knew they went down I just did not run in right away to do the surgery.

Well, it's nice that you didn't have to rush in for a revision right away. Hope your body is healing well from the lipo too!
