Goodbye Batwings -Hyannis, MA

I had lipo in November. I need to write an update about that. It helped ALOT. However, my left arm is still having swelling issues. I will probably eventually get a revision to the original brachioplasty. I will post pictures soon. ... READ COMMENT

It's been a year... and honestly... I need another procedure. I had a lipo consult a month ago and the first thing the new doctor said was that I looked like I needed another one. It's better than it was before the surgery... but my... READ COMMENT
