Horrified after Liposuction Dr. Henok Araya Vita Surgical Group

I just wanted my premom body back. I had lipo...

I just wanted my premom body back. I had lipo about 12 years ago and didn't get an hourglass curve, but I was put to sleep and felt no pain. Dr. Araya was fast, it hurt like hell, but I have curves one day post op. So it was worth it. The lipo is just uncomfortable but the anesthesia process is very painful.

3 days post op

Had a follow up appt today. I lost 4 in off my waist and I'm still swollen! I soooo happy I did this. I can't wait to go shopping. No more mom pooch and no more muffin top.

2 weeks post op

Still very swollen, especially after walking to and from metro and sitting at work all day and driving. Still in pain. I've been drained once.

2 weeks post op

4 weeks post op

Wounds look like I did the surgery myself! SMH! Managing pain with 2 pills a day given by primary because vita only gave me enough for 4 days and let me struggle and suffer. Wounds are open to drain senoma. Ended up off work for 3 weeks and not 3 days. Not what I expected at all.

5 weeks post op

3 mo post op- My body is ruined and disfigured

I can't believe I paid for dr. Araya to ruin my body and leave me unable to move for 2 months. Find a board certified dr. With stellar credentials. Don't risk your life and ruin your body.

Disgusting result

I hate my body. I wish I'd never had this surgery.

Wounds on both sides and no result- doesn't even look like I had lipo- just looks like I was stabbed and gutted.

Keeping you informed RS

I can't believe he did this to me

1 Month Post OP

Here's another photo


I charged this back from my carecredit card three months after my surgery. He didn't offer me 1 red cent, even after I was out of work for 3 weeks and unable to move and I was hospitalized. I lost 3 inches. YOu can't even tell I had the surgery.

Please do not post on my review about how great you look and how you love Dr. Araya

I am happy for anyone that had a good result from Dr. Araya. Please do not maliciously brag on my review about how happy you and your friends are with your body, as I have suffered such much, and will continue to suffer from nerve damage, scarring and pain for a long time if not forever, and I didn't lose any weight. Thank you, and God Bless.

I read he isn't board certified. I don't know if he is or isn't. I see a result but had wounds bruising scarring senoma and an infection with severy pain and 3 weeks off work. The staff is nice however.
