This has been my results from day one, after removing compression garment that they provide.....that are cheap so please purchase your own, if you decide to go with this ps. I was very puffy, was told it's swelling so I allowed 6 mths, now after no other excuse I'm told that it's fat under muscle, I wasn't a very heavy woman and didn't have a lot of stomach fat, but was told this is the he best he could do, there is no lipo to the flanks or thighs that shows a difference. My navel looks like a huge stab wound. I was given no explanation for it....I paid for chin lipo that doesn't look like it. I chose this person because of the reviews, and that they were close to home, I'm very disappointed because I could've chose one of the guys from Atlanta plastic surgery, for what I threw away with this surgeon. I felt like a experiment because I paid for fat injection and that was a joke, he has no experience in that procedure but did it anyway, the office lied when I ask to see Dr. Cochran pictures of his work, they said they couldn't find his book but showed me the other dr butt lift work, Later realized he never had any, he is experimenting with people. I got home the first day, throwing up and passing out, due to my blood being low, my sister calls and it's down played as normal, I lost a lot of blood and nothing was said about it, until I went to the ER was running fever, blood pressure low, was 1 number away from needed a blood transfusion, the ER calls him and he tells them to come in the next day to check my blood, that was a lie...he didn't mention anything about it, I made an appointment to my doctor to let them check it, I met another young lady here on this site that had her surgery done by Dr. Cochran and she was from out of town, she actually had to have a transfusion was hospitalized for a few, I thank god that I made it off that table with my life, I have never been so Disappointed in myself, I was lied to and mislead. It took me some yrs to even entertain the thought of plastic surgery, when I finally build up the nerve to do it, I choose the wrong surgeon, I have spoke with someone that wants me to give it 3 more mths and they will do what didn't get done, I am very skeptical about anything at this point, yes people this dr has good reviews but in my opinion is very unprofessional, especially when he comes out of actual surgery with blood on his scrubs to remove my drains, that is how a person can spread germs and infection. So now this is my review of Dr. Cochran, please make your decision wisely!!!

Showing a before and after surgery pic.

Comparison pictures showing not a lot of difference in the before surgery and post op.

Happy I have a appointment date scheduled to have a second opinion done on my unprofessional tummy tuck!!!

I am happy to say that I found a doctor that will look at me to see what can be done to correct this travesty of a so called tummy tuck !

This Dr has very minimum discussion about anything, PO is when you need things explained to you and you will get nothing if you don't ask, even then it's not much. The office visits are always short. If this Dr is your choice please know that when issues happen, they will be played down as nothing, so stay on top of him to demand answers.
