Nope perfectly healthy and in shape. Never smoked. Some of this is surgeon error. Skin pulled too tight so skin behind my ears tore. READ COMMENT

Doesn't work that way. They lipo flanks in back and they cut across your tummy hip to hip remove the pouchyness and sew it back together. I didn't lose weight on the scale. READ COMMENT
