Lipo in Florida; who would you recommend?

Who would you recommend for lipo sculpture and possible BBL in Florida. I'm 45 with a few inches to lose. I would like my end result to be a small waist with athletic type butt. There seems to be many reviews of botched surgeries, I don't want to be that small percentage of women that end up with bad results.

Thank you for your question. It is best to see a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon in your area who can provide you with an in person consultation to see and examine you. It is very important that they are also responsive to your questions and any concerns you may have while being available to you before and after your surgery. Best wishes.

Lipo in Florida; who would you recommend?

Hello dear, thanks for your question and provided information as well.. This is the surgical procedure that revolutionized cosmetic surgery becoming one of the most performed cosmetic procedures. Subcutaneous tissue or fat is removed in order to contour the body in a way that is harmonious and pleasing to the senses. It can be performed in almost all regions of the body such as the neck, chin, abdomen, back, buttocks, thighs, arms and ankles. Usually done through a small incision in the skin through which a cannula connected to a vacuum is applied, it can be performed alone or in combination with other procedures. After liposuction your body is going to be really swollen for at least 2 to 4 months after your surgery. It is important for you to wear your compression garment for at least 6 months, the first 3 months 24/7 and then the last 3 months at least 12 hours per day for your body get use to not having the faja for so many time. When you remove it, your body can get swollen and also you can have pain. Remember to also compress your body to prevent a seroma which is an accumulation of liquid that has to be drained, it is hard to touch and also really painful. Bruises are completely normal for almost 3 months from surgery, that’s why is better for you to use a bruising cream and apply it all over your body 3 times a day. To prevent bad circulation and swollen legs, use compression socks. Brazilian butt lift can be performed with the same procedure and for a month it will be swollen and it will drop a little bit without losing it’s shape if you use your garment.. If you’re going to perform liposuction on your inner, outer, anterior, lateral, postetior thighs, be careful and consult with your surgeon what’s best for you, sometimes we have more extra skin than fat, that can cause severe sagginess on our legs, which can be only be reversed performing a thigh lift…

Thank you for your question. SculpSure is a fantastic option for reducing that unwanted belly fat that is unresponsive to dieting and exercise. It can melt up to 25% of your subcutaneous belly/thigh fat in a 25-minute comfortable in-office treatment. I suggest that you consult with a board certified facial plastic surgeon with plenty of experience in this technology for the best results.

Best wishes,

Choosing a surgeon, getting the best results

The first thing you should do is check the ASPS website for a list of doctors in your area. Then look at online reviews. Check the surgeon's website. Look at their results. Ask around to see if you have any personal references, these can be very helpful. Once you have screened the doctor, meet with them. If they are professional and sincere, educated and experienced, if they listen to your concerns and develop a plan which fits with your goals, you have found a good match.
