I came to him unhappy with my physical appearance following the birth of my two children who are now 7 and 11 years old. I myself am 37, a petite woman who hid her problem areas so well that even my friends and family were shocked at my before pictures. I worked out religiously and ate pretty well. I was skinny fat. My belly had pockets of fat as did my hips, inner and outter thighs. I never had a waist my entire life, coming from a long line of boyish figured woman.
Dr. Rottman was suprised to say the least when I revealed what was hidden beneath my yoga pants. He said my case was a tricky one. I didn't have enough loose skin for a tummy tuck or even a mini tummy tuck. Liposuction he decided would be the best solution in my case.
I booked the surgery and made arrangements for childcare and waited the long 4 weeks for my date to arrive.
I never felt nervous going into the surgery as Dr. Rottmans calming and demeanor dispelled and worries that surfaced.
When surgery Tuesdat finnally arrived I couldn't have been more excited. The whole surgery pre-op and everything went very smoothly and I was impressed with the beautiful facility in which the operation was performed.
All I remember is the anastesioligists putting a breathing mask on my face and taking a few deep breaths.... Next thing I new I was coming to on the recovery area following what came out to be a 2 hour surgery. He has suctioned or 3.5 liters of fat from my small 5'2" 120 frame and the post op pictures taken on the OR table before the swelling were shocking.
I went home that evening, walking out of the hospital on my own and feeling ok pain wise. The next two days I pretty much slept only waking to pee and answer a few phone calls from Dr. Rottman, calling on his personal cell phone to check on me periodically. He made sure I had his personal cell number as well and couldn't have been sweeter or more attentive in any way. By mid day on Friday I was feeling much better and was up and about doing things around the house and with the kids. Saturday I was entertaining family and Sunday I took the kids to the pool. Monday I returned to work.
The swelling wasn't so bad... The first few days my legs were pretty bruised and swollen but it all went away much quicker than I had expected and the results of his amazing work are already very apparent.
My pants are all too big and I have been shopping like crazy for belts among other things.
It feels so amazing to finally have to body that I have struggle and worked so hard for for so long. I always thought people who got lipo were lazy and that they should just diet and exersize. I realize now that after a certain age exersize is a bunch a bull. You can workout until you throw up (done it more than once) but your body will hold on to increasingly more stubborn areas of fat with very passing year no matter how much you fight it.
I will be forever grateful to Dr. Rottman for giving a body to match my confidence. I feel amazing. My husband, who thought I was a little nuts for going through with the surgery can't believe how dramatic the results are and my best friend says I'm totally a 9... (If I get boobs, she says I'll be a 10).... Maybe next year ????
I am not surprised Dr. Rottman is one of Baltimore's Top Doc's, he in my book is The Top Doc. If you go to anyone else you are making a mistake.
Thank you!!! ????????????????
