From a Tree Trunk Waist to an Hourglass Figure!

I traveled to Dr. Yoho's Pasadena office requesting liposuction of the waist, thighs, rear, etc. The waist was particularly important to me as my 1st boyfriend whom I'd been with for 9 years had always told me I'd had a "tree trunk" shaped waist. Though we'd parted ways a year prior to that, those words had stayed with me, & I did think I could benefit from a more "hourglass," feminine figure. The technique used by Dr. Yoho was not nearly as painful as I expected. I did wear my compression garment following surgery for the length of time I was directed to do so. I did not need to take a significant amount of pain medication nor did I need to take many days off work. It was really incredible! I expected to be "down for the count" so to speak. The liposuction results were amazing. It was true - like magic - Dr. Yoho had done it. Like the title of his book (which I had purchased and read a year or two prior to my procedure), I had A NEW BODY IN ONE DAY. 11 years later, the body contouring he performed has lasted and remains fantastic. I highly recommend Dr. Yoho to anyone considering a liposuction procedure.

Adding Photos to Post

Someone from Real Self contacted me and requested I post some photos that reflect the caliber of Dr. Yoho's work. Here are just a few:

I realized I did not have any photos of the results from the back so adding those along with a couple of additional swimsuit pho

I am new to Real Self, and I just realized I did not have any photos of the results from the back in my original post. I am adding those along with a couple of additional swimsuit photos. Dr. Yoho also performed my breast augmentation so please see my other review regarding that procedure to learn about the process and those fantastic results.


The before photo to the left shows the thicker waist and no breast implants. The photo to the right was after I received my new hourglass waist and my first breast augmentation. Seeing these 2 photos right next to each other really shows you the full impact of the changes made to my body.
Dr. Robert Yoho

I have always been 100%+ satisfied with all of the procedures Dr. Yoho has performed for me (5 procedures - the 1st of which was this liposuction in 2005). After each procedure, Dr. Yoho has always called me personally multiple times to check in with me to see how the healing process is going and how I'm feeling. His bedside manner has always been terrific making sure a patient never feels ashamed, intimidated, or embarrassed to ask him any question. Consultations and follow-up appointments are never rushed. He will give you all the time you need and then some. Prices are extremely reasonable, and Dr. Yoho will not perform work that he does not believe is necessary. In fact often times, his experience and techniques allow him to suggest methods by which to fix a problem or address a patient's area(s) of concern that the patient and quite possibly other cosmetic surgeons may not have thought of before which are either less costly, will leave less of a scar, or both. When you walk into New Body Cosmetic Surgery, you will experience a level of professionalism unmatched in the industry combined with a feeling of warmth which genuinely makes you feel like a part of the Yoho family. Dr. Yoho is not only a stellar surgeon, but he also operates with true honesty and integrity. I wouldn't be who I am today without him, and I speak from the heart when I tell you that I trust him with my health and with my life. If you are considering any cosmetic surgery procedure, please do not hesitate to take the 1st step. Call Dr. Yoho and schedule an initial consultation to discuss your concerns and insecurities with him today, and I'm certain you'll be excited to learn what he can do for you.
