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 come a family of women with petite frames and abdominal heaviness. Though I am only 5'3" and weigh 125 lb, my waist circumference is 37.5 inches and very unattractive. I will be having liposuction of the abdomen/waist area, flanks, and mid-back (bra area). I will also be having a rhinoplasty... READ MORE

I'm very interested in getting liposuction done to my abdomen, flanks, and arms. I recently went to 3 Drs. For a consultation. The 1st dr I went to I found on realself he has good reviews but not many about liposuction. During the consultation he was very nice extremely professional but when I... READ MORE

After My Liposuction Surgery Was Finished, I Was Very Happy With The Work Dr. Pinnela Did. But Soon Realized After 3 weeks, My Right Hip Had Not Been Lipoed At All. So I Contacted The South Florida Center For Cosmetic Surgery, Emailed Photos and Was Told To Wait 6 to 8 Months To See If It's Just... READ MORE

Very please with Dr Peter Raphael and staff and Lori was great! A nurse by the name of Lori spent the night with me and I was in heaven. I am really blessed with the entire bedside manners. I highly recommend him to everyone. They made me feel like someone and not just my money. I have been... READ MORE

After my first augmentation I wasn't sure what to expect... the textured gel was not fo me and my boobs look as if they had never had the original operation. The surgeon decided to correct the procedure. Re doing the augmentat ion which meant replacing the textured gel with a smooth gel... READ MORE

Over winter break, I got a breast augmentation surgery by Dr. Kramer in Wauwatosa. She and I thought that I would have to have a breast lift, but she did so well with the breast augmentation that I didn't have too! Hey, anyone that can save me $5k is awesome!!!!!! So, since I was already... READ MORE

I was considering CoolSculpting for my flanks top but was skeptical about its effectiveness on this particular area. The fat here is pretty firm and I don't think the machine would suck it in nicely. I got a sweet deal for tickle lipo (50% off) and decided to go for it. I would discourage... READ MORE

No matter how low my body fat percentage I've always had a tummy and I've always been very self conscious of it. It's finally the right time for me to do surgically what can't be done through working out. But what is the best path for me? Smartlipo, abdominalplasty, or liposuction? After... READ MORE

Ever since puberty I've had a fatty lower belly that I can't get rid of no matter how much I diet and exercise. I currently weigh around 150 which is pretty good for 5'10". If I exercise a lot and eat right I can sometimes get down to 145 but that is lowest I can go without compromising my... READ MORE

I am shaped just like my mother.. A total Apple.. I carry all my weight between my armpits and my waist. I had a breast reduction in 2007.. (Fully covered by medical insurance)..Best decision I have ever made thus far. I am getting liposuction on my back, hips, flanks, waist, upper and lower... READ MORE

After the birth of my second son I knew I wanted to get work done. He was an emergency c-section, but I was advised that I was a candidate for a tummy tuck. So for 13 years I waited in hopes of having 1 more child before I had my procedure done. The baby never came, but treating myself to... READ MORE

I've done a lot of research before actually going through with the surgery. I saw multiple surgeons before deciding on John Burns. The day of the surgery was pretty rough. I started my period and with that comes a migraine. I called and spoke with him and he told me to take my imitrex. I don't... READ MORE

I wanted to get lipo to mainly get rid of my love handles. Eventually I think I will get a tummy tuck and some fake hoohaas. I was worried about down time so I went with tumescent lipo just for the shaping. Personally I don't care right now about my stretch marks because my husband and myself... READ MORE

After a total abdominal hysterectomy at 43 which loosened my abdominal muscles and threw me into menopause, I immediately lost my waistline and over time my figure continued to deteriorate. Exercising 3-4 times a week with a trainer and watching my diet didn't help and I just couldn't get rid... READ MORE

I've always struggled with body image but I've learned to cut myself some slack as I get older because, well... frankly, there are far too many flaws on an older body to obsess over ALL of them! I've accepted my extra weight and my droopy breasts and my gray hairs and little wrinkles but I... READ MORE

I've been on Real self almost a month and I'm in need of a good doctor for lipo!

If I was going for it, I was going all the way. No excuses here about kids, exercise, or medical issues. By the time you're 40, even if you weigh the exact same as when you were 27, things tend to shift. Every woman experiences this and deals with it in different ways. The hot bod from your...

I am very happy with my results so far. I'm 3 1/2 weeks post op and feel so great! My back is flat and I can already wear clothes I never was able to wear because of my fat back roll. And my waist is super tiny. I almost feel like I'm almost back to pre pregnancy status. I've had 3 big babies. I... 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
