Dr. Seare's web site has a lot of education, explanation, and tutorials regarding different techniques (a friend considering just lipo and alternate techniques loved the helpful material on pros and cons of each).
Dr. Seare is one of the pioneers of fat transfer and has extensive skill and experience. He also has a lot of male patients, so I felt comfortable. He spent a lot of time during a few consultations, helping me understand the options and exactly what the procedures and recovery would be. I opted for his "Around the World" procedure to harvest fat from all around my belly, sides, and back. Dr. Seare find this gives an all-around tightening that is better than doing areas individually.
I was awake but drugged. The fat harvesting (liposuction) was painless. The fat injections did hurt but briefly (too much anesthetic in the area makes it hard to see exactly where the fat is needed). The recovery was more annoying than anything else, but I was able to comply with wearing the girdles, camis, and straps even when on international flights.
My face looks 10 years younger, and I no longer have a gut. I'm so pleased that I decided to get a second, smaller procedure done to fill in a few areas a little more.
