I really want more lipo on my stomach but he said he did not think I have enough fat in that area as I have previously had lipo there and it could create irregularities. That was disappointing as really want more contouring in that area to create more if an hourglass figure. Also I'm thinking how is there enough fat in my arms and knees for lipo but not my abdomen area? I do not want any irregularities so I did not push it. I had absolutely no problems with my previous liposuction and I don't want any.
After my consultation with Dr. Dass I spoke with his coordinator Angela again about pricing for the areas he suggested and to transfer. The total was $9900 which seems very expensive given the fact that I would not get my abdomen area liposuctioned at all.
I decided to not have the knee area included and that reduced the price by $1000.
After more consideration and Realself stalking (this website is great) I scheduled a 2nd consultation for 9/23 to ask additional questions. I asked again about areas that fat could be grafted from and the amount that he thought he could get from each area. As you ladies know it is all about the ccs injected with this procedure. Dr. Dass advised me at that time that he should be able to get about 600ccs into each side for noticeable results but again that included about 100-150 ccs from my knees if included. So I'm thinking without the knees he should be able to inject about 500ccs on each side which would be fine because I already have some booty. Angela said he usually gets out and injects more than he anticipates.
I met with Angela again on Wednesday 9/28 and confirmed my date and paid for the procedure. I am set for 10/6. Very close, I want to be healed and out of those garments by Thanksgiving as I may have to travel and will definitely want to hang out comfortably with friends and family.
After I made my payment in full I met with Dr Dass on 9/28 also. He took pictures and his assistant did my measurements and weighed me at that time. I asked Dr. Dass again about the ccs and this time he said he couldn't be sure of how much he could get out but he would take as much out as possible from the areas to be lipoed which are inner thighs, upper arms and upper back bra rolls. I really want this to go well as $9000.00 is a lot of money and I want to see great results! He also told me that wearing the garment improperly could cause irregularities. I've worn the garment before so not too concerned with that as long as he properly liposuctions the heck out of the areas discussed I should be ok. I follow directions very well and especially when it concerns my body and surgery. I wonder though if anyone has had any irregularities that they feel were caused by not wearing garments properly or for the suggested amount of time?
Just five more days to go and I am nervous and excited! I will go shopping for a few items needed this weekend to prepare for the surgery.
