I paid an extra $3500 for a breast lift, and I was told I needed to stay at Pat's recovery house an extra four days for the breast lift. But when I arrived there, I was told that that would be...

Questions from HowDoYouKnow

Must I stop taking low doses of Ephedrine before Liposuction and a Breast lift?

I am taking ephedrine two or three times a day at 12.5mg each tablet. Do I need to stop taking this before surgery, and, if so, how long before? What are the dangers? Thanks so... READ MORE

Am I a good candidate for an inner thigh lift? (Photo)

I have been told by one doctor that I would not get much benefit from an inner thigh lift. Thanks for your time! READ MORE

Am I a good candidate for an arm lift? (Photo)

Double chin five weeks after neck/mid facelift. Any suggestions? (photos)

I am five weeks and three days out from my neck and face lift, and it seems that my neck/double chin is nearly as bad as it was before surgery. It was nice and flat about a... READ MORE

I am nine weeks post face/neck lift and serious neck remains. (Photo)

I see very little improvement in neck after nine weeks. The whole point of facelift was to get rid of neck, as I knew lipo alone wouldn't do it. So much scarring for nothing!... READ MORE

I am 6.5 weeks post deep-plane face and neck lift. Will this swelling under chin after necklift go away? (photo)

Performed by a face specialist. The doctor told me that he sewed my platysma muscles together, as well as cut out a large fat pad. I still have a large double chin, and am... READ MORE

Is this double chin 12 weeks post deep-plane facelift acceptable/normal? (photos)

Hi there. I am 12 weeks post deep-plane face lift with platysmaplasty and removal of fat pad. I am confident in my doctor and can feel the work he did. What could be causing... READ MORE

Thank you so much for the detailed review. I am almost 2.5 years out and have gained about 20 pounds (or half of total loss) back, and have really been beating myself up, but I know it's partly my fault. It does seem that people gain... READ COMMENT

I had the sleeve in December, 2014. I only lost about 30 pounds of the 50 I wanted to, and I have since gained back 16 of those pounds, for a total loss of only about 14 pounds. I eat very healthy and work out 3-4 times/week. Very... READ COMMENT
