Worst Decision I've Ever Made

All I wanted out of this was a neckline again. I knew liposuction would not be enough for me. My local doctor charges $9,000 for a neck lift, so $6,900 for a full face lift sounded pretty good to me!

Questions from HowDoYouKnow

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

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

Thank you so much for your support. It really does help! And I want others to know that the same thing can happen to them. READ COMMENT

I have to wait a full year after surgery for my revision for the scars to heal. I have not yet decided on the doctor, but I will have it done in the US. Definitely not going back to Dr. Koelliker! READ COMMENT

Thanks, Dianne! READ COMMENT

Thank you, Fifty. No, I had no feelings of tightness in my neck or chin area, and no incision under my chin - only a tiny hole from lipo. Thank you so much for sharing your experience. It helps to know that I'm not just being a... READ COMMENT
