Liposuction is an invasive procedure used to improve body contour by removing areas of fat that've been resistant to diet and exercise. It's important to note that lipo is not intended to significantly reduce weight, cellulite, or sagging skin. Here's how it works: Thin tubes called cannulas are inserted into the body, dislodging fat deposits that are then suctioned out. Lipo can be done on various body parts including the abdomen and waist, hips and thighs, and the cheeks, chin, and neck.

I've been trolling this site for about 2 years now and I've finally decided to make the leap to get Lipo. I'm scheduled for Monday to get my full abdomen & upper back done. I've been doing a ton of research and putting all my faith in to Dr. Davoudi. My life is so consumed with work that I... READ MORE

A little nervous about posting, but because I'm reading your experience, it's only fair I share. I started thinking about this seriously summer of 2015. I could have done it then but chickened out. So I'm going for it in about a month. Still nervous, but will be ok. My kids are supportive and... READ MORE

I am fit everywhere but my belly. No trainer, diet or pills can help me. I'm 5 feet with a short torso. The belly has got to go. I went to another doctor a few years back that was so obnoxious and rude at my consultation I never got the procedure. I read about Dr. Bond. The positive reviews got... READ MORE

Power assisted liposuction was performed by Dr. Kenneth kneesey. 750 ml was removed, 350 ml of... READ MORE

Since there is very little reviews on here for liposuction of buffalo jump I've decided to document the experience. I went to two board certified plastic surgeons in Bellevue,WA. They were both great and prices were similar. I decided to just get it over with since I've hated it my whole life... READ MORE

So, I'm finally doing it. A few years ago, I lost about 100#. Even then, I had back rolls. Not biscuits, big buttery ROLLS. I've since gained about 30#, but I'm holding steady. Still, I decided I want the rolls gone, and since I had so much to work with, I thought I'd go ahead and buy the... READ MORE

Very excited about this opportunity to finally lose a measurable amount of inches. Feel like I've tried everything. Exercise seems to make me hold onto weight. Tried paleo, AIP, Jenny Craig, Atkins, low carb, etc. My now 15 yr. old weighed 11 lbs. at (natural) birth, which stretched me to where... READ MORE

So I'm a newbie to surgery, but decided a few weeks ago to have some lipo. I'm in my late 30s and a busy lady so don't have the time to shift the flabby bits. Lol. Surgery date is in couple of weeks and I'm actually super excited!! I want to go now ???? The staff at Elite Aftercare have been... READ MORE

So far so good - 2 weeks today! I'm feeling fine. I never needed any pain pills besides a regular tylenol. I found the hardest part was/is wearing the garment. It is tight and annoying. But I'm doing it. The results seem good. I just wanted to fit nicely in my cloths which were starting to... READ MORE

Hi Everybody I've decided to detail my liposuction experience here for everyone. It is through reviews on RealSelf that I had my first surgery experience nearly two years ago, and now I'm finally doing Liposuction. My surgery two years ago was to lower my hairline with a doctor in Miami, and... READ MORE

Eeek I'm so excited that I get to start this journey! After lots of researching and a bit of soul searching I've finally decided to take the plunge and have some work done. I'm not doing this because I hate my body, on the contrary, I LOVE it! I've worked hard over the past few years through... READ MORE

The countdown  has begun!!! I finally decided to get my dream body. I use to weight over 240 lbs and over the years have worked my ass off to lose 65lbs and keep it off. I go to the gym regularly and eat clean for the most part (I love my wine) lol. That being said I have always had ... READ MORE

I am fortunate enough that i never got stretch marks with my (now 32 yrold) son back in the day. I have however started to get a hanging belly on one side of my abdomen. It wasn't too bad, but it made clothes, pants especially fit awkward. I looked into a tummy tuck, but did not want the scar. I... READ MORE

After reaching out to several doctors I am confident that I am ready to move forward with Dr. Luis Mejia! So far his assistant Lefny has been very tactful and prompt with her responses. Keeping aware of everything. I am anticipating Liposuction, Tummy Tuck, and Breast Lift w/o implants. Can... READ MORE
