TT W/MR, BL/BR in 2013; BA & Thigh Lift in 2014...and in 2015-posterior Lower Body Lift - Santa Monica, CA

I hadn't even thought about plastic surgery before someone on a... READ MORE

My ps is in Santa Monica...heck of a long drive (as I sit in LA traffic right now going to a postop visit) but well worth every minute spent in traffic. I would rather drive then have some of the botched results I have seen on here. If... READ COMMENT

I have had no issues with my band post-TT/MR. Because I was doing a lot of ab workouts, my original port was painful, felt like I was constantly bruising the abs behind my port. Dr. Zarrabi did change my port to a low profile port with... READ COMMENT
