Dr. Ulerio is simply among the best surgeons in the country and I would recommend him to anyone in a heartbeat. he's not the type of surgeon thats going to take your money, cut you up, and send you on your way, he will give you a thorough, honest evaluation of what would work best for your body type and he will explain it in terms you understand. He is also really focused on safety and won't put someone at risk by trying to do too many procedures at the same time.
Dr. Ulerio shares Plastimedic (clinic/practice) with a few other surgeons and Just by walking into the clinic you can tell what a huge difference it is compared to other places (like CIPLA and CECIP to name a few). The clinic is beautiful, clean, and each surgeon has their own very uniquely designed office to work in comfortably. You're not going to walk into chaos/yelling/socializing in hallways, there is always pleasant music playing, comfortably air conditioned, there is private parking with a very nice valet, its very welcoming overall.
Communication is key; Dr. Ulerio and his staff are extremely professional and communicative. When I woke up after surgery I was pleasantly surprised that my family had been receiving updates all along. Everyone from he doctor , his assistant, the massage therapist, and the nurses was extremely accommodating and checked in on me daily. * and continue to do so :-)
I had liposuction on my abdomen and back because those were the areas where I had to have fat removed to improve my shape. Everyone has a different threshold for pain so In my opinion it definitely hurt ( gym workout soreness all over) but it wasn't excruciating (I also had a good combination of antibiotics/pain meds). In my personal experience the most uncomfortable part was wearing the garment because I hate wearing tight clothing but it gets better.
Im officially two weeks post-op and Im only sore around the stitches (I have a few stitches where they had to open the skin to insert the cannula and remove fat). The swelling has gone down significantly (Im wearing the garment comfortably on the 3rd setting (The day after surgery we struggled with getting it on the first setting). The massages are uncomfortable because the area is tender but I feel better after each massage so get all of your massages .
Ill post before/after pictures soon as soon as i get someone to get good angles.
