Almost 46. Decided to Do Something for Me and Do a Freshen Up. Eyelift Surgery, Cellulaze, Axillary Lipo and Lil on Thighs. - MD

I'm still watching to see how cellulaze turns out. It may have helped. Idk yet. Lipo on one thigh seems fair, the other not so much. 1 month post op. Well see what needs touched up there. As for Axillary..Idk about that either. Just have to see how skin settles. Kind of a mess right now and... READ MORE

Tummy Tuck After 2 Children @ 36 - Baltimore, MD

I have always been in shape and worked out. Couldnt get my lower abs to get as flat as they were before having my 2nd child. Dr. Markman explained it was a muscle gap and surgery could correct this. Course was nice to have the extra skin off as well. I think I had 2inches by the looks of my... READ MORE

Cellulaze Back of Thighs and Outter Thighs - Maryland, MD

From what I'm seeing at 6 weeks I'd have to say it's going well. I keep reading where patients say they don't see results till months later, but I saw a difference right away. Could be lighting or always wearing compression, but I think it worked well for me. I want to do front and inner thigh, ... READ MORE

Axillary Lipo - Maryland

Bad idea. Instead of a lil buldge now I have extra skin that I really don't think will retract. I have a kind of bat wing now under my arm toward my back. He ran the lipo into the back area somewhat. More on one side than the other. Now I have two very different sides back there squishing out... READ MORE

Dont Think I Like This Product. Seems to Creep and Move and Disappear - Baltimore, MD

Upper and lower eyelift surgery 2 weeks ago. Why are the incisions in different places? Does it mean I need a revision? (Photo)

If there is still a difference between left and right thigh after Cellulaze do I have to wait 6 months and start all over?

I asked the Dr. before surgery if he uses Smart Lipo. He said he uses Ultrasonic. Do you get the same results with each? (photo)

Has anybody done a brow lift to help upper hollow after a surgeon did a stripping eye lid lift? (Photo)
