My surgery is scheduled for Aug 25, 2016. The reason I'm traveling is because I want the best... READ MORE

So Far, I'm Pleased - Orlando, FL

Completed my first of 4 treatments about 11 days ago on Sept 16. My skin does feels tighter and softer. My husband and one close friend notice a difference after only one treatment. It's a slight difference, but given I've only had one treatment so far, I'm very pleased. I look forward to the next 3 treatments and will post my results here. READ MORE

The areola doesn't look that bad in my humble opinion... especially for 10 days postop. The reason the lines look so obvious is because they are new incisions... and they haven't fused together yet. With time the outer edges os the... READ COMMENT

Hi Charm, I just sent you a private message. Also to let you know I accidentally hit what I think was a "spam" button on one of your posts. I'm not exactly sure what that's going to do... but it's now says "flagging". Anyway if... READ COMMENT

Sorry to hear about your symmastia. Sounds like Dr. Vath has a good plan. I think the 350cc will look very nice on you. Good luck with everything. READ COMMENT
