Finally Perky and Normal Size at 58 Years Old -Grand Rapids, MI

I've thought of having this done for years but never got up the nerve to talk to my doctor about it. When I talked to her she referred me to Plastic Surgery Associates and Dr. David Alfonso in Grand Rapids, MI. He explained the procedure to me, the woman in charge of insurance was able to get it...

Waist Again - Grand Rapids, MI

Since my breast reduction Oct. 3, 2012 I've been much more aware of my midriff, rolls of fat and the fact that I no longer can wear pants that are not elastic waist since I'm so big & flabby with a fat over-hang in the middle.

Happy with Back Lipo Done with TT - Grand Rapids, MI

Ask them about the sleeve, it's less time in surgery and less invasive as gastric bypass. I'd hate to have you settle for the band, then later they want the band out to move forward with another surgery. I guess it doesn't hurt to ask... READ COMMENT

Mari: I will be praying for you when you meet with the doctor on Monday. What can be done to make you less of a cardiac risk? Don't you need to have this surgery to prevent further heart issues? Go ahead & cry if you need, then be... READ COMMENT

Mari I'm so sorry. Any chance they will consider the sleeve? The band just doesn't work well from all I've heard. I hope you can appeal their decision. How about any other issues: sleep apnea, high blood pressure, high cholesterol,... READ COMMENT

So glad you are finally home again after having so many problems, the sleeve is enough to worry about. I'm 3 days post-op and I also find my stomach hurts & growels when I'm hungry and hurts and growels after I drink. I'm still pushing... READ COMMENT
