I received a BBL exactly a year ago so I figured I would write a review after giving everything a year to officially set. I was so excited about getting the BBL. I knew I wanted my butt a little bigger more so just perky. During my consultation he evaluated me and told me I was perfect for the procedure I was young (22) with 1 child and he said my skin elasticity was perfect. I had lipo done on my abdomen and love handles, I was never big to begin with but I just wanted a flat stomach and perky butt.After my procedure I was very happy. I was swollen of course but I liked the way my butt looked and it looked like my abdomen was going to turn out very very flat. After a few weeks once swelling went down I still noticed my stomach was not flat when I told dr. Gottlieb my concerns he said give it time it will will come down more and more and be flat like I said I wanted from the beginning. Long story short I visited back with him twice and still had the same concerns of a still fat stomach(skin is not loose at all just some fat) My butt wasn't exactly like I wanted but I was fine with that cause I wasn't expecting my vision to be 100% but I was very concerned about my stomach. During my last visit I let him know my same concerns and instead of telling me he obviously didn't remove enough fat he tells me I need a TUMMY TUCK ! Which was never discussed as a option or a thought from the beginning! That really Rubbed me the wrong way because as my doctor you should tell me what's best you think is best from the beginning and if I disagree that's no ones fault but my own. So basically now after I paid all my money and got the procedure he tells me I need a totally different procedure done and I would have to pay again! Him telling me that just makes it seem like he is only concerned about the MONEY! I was beyond upset because I really felt like he was the best doctor for me , I like him as a person nd he was very convincing of what he was going to do for me. People ask me all the time about the practice and he has missed it on a few customers because I really would not recommend people to go I really just feel cheated and it's just like people say we are their walking billboards so you would think we would get the best
