My legs are slimmer and appear more even now. I would like to have additional procedures to complete my desired result. But the results were immediate and they do last.
On Friday Sept 18th, I will be having tumescent liposuction on my calves and ankles. I am a healthy weight but unfortunately genetics has left the women of my family with tree stumps for legs. These legs have negatively shaped my entire life. I've missed out on every pool party, canoeing trip, little black dress outing, etc. I don't wear bathing suits, shorts, short dresses, etc., ever! I...
I went to see Doctor Crabtree due to the fact that I might be needing a revision. He was such an experience doctor with a great bedside manner and very caring. He told me that at 2 weeks post op that should be the least of my worries. He told me to go to the ER to have some drains removed because he was afraid that the pain would be too much if he did it without sedation. Once my botched...

He was a great bedside manner physician but In my opinion was not caring of the end result of the details of my exact body structure that I was looking for. I felt that I lost too much fat on the right side on my belly as it's too flat and there needed to be more attention to details. I went back to touch up my left side to even things out that he clearly noticed. However, the laser was not used the second time and my results were very minimal. I am glad now that it wasn't, I don't think more removal of fat to even things out is the answer. I need some grafting done to correct the minimal waviness around my belly button. These places always put the blame for poor results on the risk to the patient. The main reason I selected this doctor was based upon his experience. My risk should have been minimized to the trust and experience that he is setting expectations correctly regarding such a simple procedure for someone that is not overweight like myself. Their office never asked if I was happy or if there is anything they could do if my contour was uneven. I felt that I had to convince them to do something for me for the touch-up procedure. I was told that the end result was my body shape underneath.... which in 39 years of my life I've never seen. I initially went in for my male breast reduction but those results turned out minimal. The abdomen bothers me more now than anything. I am very disappointed.
