I did it to complete all my hard work of losing weight which turned out to be a bust when he ruined my body!
I went in to see my Dr. for smart lipo. At the time I weighed about 160lbs. I had just lost 20 lbs after my baby weight. I got my flanks done. I paid $3400.00 for the in office procedure. It was slightly painful but not at all like I thought. I was in there for about an hour and a half. Pretty swollen for a couple of months. I didn't see much difference so I went in for a review. The doc said it should take a couple more months. I waited. Still no change. The last time I went in I was fed up. It is a lot of money for no results. The nurse had the nerve to ask me how much weight I gained. To her surprise, after weighing me (since she didnt believe me) I had lost an additional 10 lbs. since the surgery because I was working out a lot!
The doc comes in and tells me there is great change although I cant see it and that the reason that it still looks big is because I lost weight and that area doesn't lose weight along with it! (Which I later learned that is bull!) So they lied to begin with when I was told that it is okay to get it done at 160lbs and encouraged to work out because the more I lose the more it will go down. Now they are telling me that I should have waited to have lost all my weight!?!?
So either way, he wouldn't correct the surgery unless I paid out of pocket again, though it didn't work in the first place. And here I am with weird dents and lumps on my flanks, from smart lipo (which is popular for a smooth finish) still the same large size and $3400.00 broker. And I cannot do anything about it. He is a horrible doctor! A real plastic sergeon would have fixed his mistake. If you take money you should do what you promised!
He claims he works to satisfy...I guess he has a low standard. Think twice before hiring this doc, most likely your results will not be what was asked! I have before and after pictures of the surgery, 1 year total. You can see the differrence in weight loss natural all over my body, which I am now 140lbs. and that there was no change in the flanks area, also the dents are very defined. They are available upon request!
