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 consulted/interviewed with 6 doctors & Dr. Markmann was an easy decision. I met with him for about 40 minutes & he gave me soooo much information, answered every question I asked & did a quick evaluation. Between him & his staff, I felt so confident, I booked the next day after my... READ MORE

I'm a middle aged guy in decent health that exercises regularly. But I've always had stubborn spots that would not go away no matter what. So I eventually decided to get liposuction on my chest back in 2013. Unfortunately, I didn't goto Dr Widder first. One year later, my chest was a little... READ MORE

I have always held all my weight right on my stomach. I got down to 10% body fat through vigorous exercise and dieting once, and still had no visible abdominal muscles. I really wanted to be able to sit down on the edge of a pool and not have a stomach roll showing. I'd long talked about... READ MORE

I've been reading through reviews for a while (almost a year) and figured I would post my own story because I've finally made my decision - no turning back.

About 18 months ago, I had an abdominoplasty done by Dr. Kerr. Results were great, but there were some areas he couldn't lipo at the time because it would have risked healing of the big incision. There was also a dog ear on one side. Stuff like that happens, and they offered to take care of... READ MORE

Stay far far away....GET SOMEONE BOARD CERTIFIED WITH A MD BEFORE THEIR NAME. It seems all good until things go completely wrong.
