My experience with Dr Bergeron exceeded all of my expectations! He explained in detail what to expect during the surgery. The fact that there is NO anesthesia was a huge plus. I also inquired about an additional surgery, but Dr. Bergeron did not feel that I would not be a candidate. His honesty made me more confident that Dr. Bergeron was the Dr. for me. I had smart lipo on my upper, lower abs, and hips. Two weeks later I had smart lipo on my inner and outer thighs. I was a bit nervous about the two procedures being so close together, but it was a very easy recovery for both. With any surgery, I was concerned about the pain level, but I was extremely comfortable during the surgery. I'd say very minimal to no pain. Dr. Bergeron was very caring and constantly checking to make sure that I was ok during the procedures. I also have to commend his staff. They were great, during the consult and the surgery. I can't wait to see the final results on my 3 month check up. On a side note. I'm 61, and did not expect to see such wonderful results. If you are considering lipo, I urge you to see Dr. Bergeron for a consult. I could not be more pleased with my experience!
