Don't Waste Your Time or Money - Spring, Texas

Had upper and lower abdomen and upper arms, very little impact for the cost. I would have been better to just spend a couple of thousand more and just had a lipo. And by the way, this is not painless, it hurts when you are getting done to some degree and after as well. I have a high pain... READ MORE

Nearly 60 and the Belly Fat Needs to Go - Houston, TX

So last year I did Cool Sculpting with little obvious results. Having said that I have a pretty good amount of belly fat and maybe the loss just wasn't obvious. I'm not a great candidate for lipo because of some health issues so I decided to give Vanquish a try. So my thoughts after two... READ MORE

57 Years Young and Don't Want to Go Through the Rest of Life with an Old Lady Stomach. Houston, TX

I had an EKG as well, If a Dr didn't ask for one at our age I certainly would question their commitment to our safety! READ COMMENT

My I ask what you paid for your lipo? Would you use him again? READ COMMENT

No I don't believe he does these in his office and frankly after a bad experience with an "in office surgical suite" with my TT i was much happier in the hospital and that cost was very reasonable READ COMMENT

I'll take that ;-) READ COMMENT

Without the drains you'll have more swelling which means you'll look less presentable at one week then if you had them. My Dr likes to use them for that reason but talk to your PS and see what he says, at the end of the day it should... READ COMMENT
