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 wanted fuller breast and a smaller waist for quite some time. So I chose to undergo a BA and lipo of the abdomen, midsection and flanks. I'm 4 days post op and I'm unsure if I made a good decision with getting the lipo. I dislike how I feel and look and it's becoming difficult to see the... READ MORE

Well after five plastic surgeon consults.. I made the choice to go to my facial dr locally. Dr. Pickart was honest with my expected results. He knew the sagging skin I have now needed a full TT and Lipo would only make that worse. But I can't take leave from work for a full TT, and I feel that... READ MORE

I traveled to Dr. Yoho's Pasadena office requesting liposuction of the waist, thighs, rear, etc. The waist was particularly important to me as my 1st boyfriend whom I'd been with for 9 years had always told me I'd had a "tree trunk" shaped waist. Though we'd parted ways a year prior to that,... READ MORE

I was overweight as a child. For the past 14 years of my life I've been dedicated to maintaining my weight, now 134. Even at 127 pounds, eating super super clean, I can never get rid of my belly. I wear a size 6, 28 in jeans. My legs and butt are my best feature, but want to get my inner thighs... READ MORE

I'm not sure and having mixed feelings about results, I won't go in depth about my feels yet because its only been 1 wk post op. The pain: day of surgery, I woke up feeling extremly cold but good. The pain felt like I lifted weights in the gym for a month straight but it's been manageble for... READ MORE

I am posting a before and after lipo pic of my thighs. I had aqua assisted lipo on my inner and outer thighs. It's been exactly 4 weeks since the procedure and I already see a huge difference! Since final results take several months I am really hoping to see further improvement. For the first... READ MORE

My PS performed lipo on my stomach, flanks and lower back and I'm starting to regret it. I am so swollen and its more painful than the BA or mini TT. I have knots, bruises and it is extremely painful to the touch. My PS advises I give myself deep massages 4x a day for 5 min each spot and its... READ MORE

So, I had multiple answers from doctors, as well as a couple of in person consultations with Atlanta doctors, and one photo-consult with Dr Arguello in CR. I've decided to go with Dr. Zubowicz in Atlanta. It is close to home, and surprisingly, the same cost as going to Costa Rica. That is BEFORE... READ MORE

I had my lipo procedure on 5/17/2016 under iv sedation. When i woke up i had little back pain and a compression garment on and 2 binders with ted hose. I slept most of that day and night. My husband purchased me a body pillow and it really helped. The next day I woke up soaked. I was draining a... READ MORE

I had liposuction on my chin, abdomen, flanks and upper and lower back with Dr. Moises Salama on Thursday. I decided to finally go through with having this procedure done in spite of all my fears because I truly wanted the stomach and back that I had as a younger woman (pre-kids). Dr. Salama was...

My stomach went from relatively nice, to yucky! I am 5' 4" and while never skinny, I have had curves, but maintained a nice figure. I... READ MORE

For years now I've wanted to have something done about my stomach area. After having 3 children I wasn't happy with the appearance I was left with. I am 32 years old and wanted to gift myself a new start. I find Dr Bensimon here in PDX and I couldn't be happier with my results so far. He is... READ MORE

Finally Dr Saul Lahijani fixed the problem so easily... READ MORE
