My tummy is now misshapen - I have a large bulge just above my pelvic bone...looks like I'm wearing a fannypack around my lower abdomen. I can't wear form-fitting clothes and I'm embarrassed by my profile - exactly the opposite of my expectations. I now need additional surgery to improve it - something I was not warned about. Over the past 9 months I have found the staff to be disorganized and unresponsive...I waited over an hour the last 2 times I went in for a follow-up, and I finally gave up. I cannot recommend Dr. Schwartz.....when you spend that kind of money, you expect good results and concern about your satisfaction.
