Reviews & Stories

Developed a Buffalo Hump, and I Hate It! - Minnesota, MN

Had the lipo surgery this morning. Vaser lipo was used, with one tiny puncture wound. I saw there aren't many reviews here about this area being treated, so I want to share my experience. This unsightly fat hump is not that uncommon. I work in a clothing store and have seen other women who will only wear collared shirts so it won't be noticed. Now I know how they feel. Not all PSs seem to be... READ MORE

Jennifer Harrington, MD

out of 5 stars

I only saw Dr Harrington for five minutes, for a consultation. I was interested in liposuction of my "buffalo hump" at the top of my back. Worst part, she kept me waiting for my scheduled consult for over an hour! I would have walked out but really wanted to meet her, as her reviews are very good. Second, after that long wait (which she did apologize for) she told me she has never had luck... READ MORE

Going for Lip Reduction After Fat Transfer Many Years Ago - Plano, TX

Ok, I've committed to lip reduction surgery on upper and lower lips. I feel confident in the surgeon I have chosen, but am still nervous about the recovery. Anyone who has been there and can give me any tips or words of wisdom? The reviews here are so helpful and I plan to add photos and a description of my recovery as well. Everything went smoothly getting to Dallas thanks to Dr Lam's... READ MORE

Breast Implants Weren't Cute Anymore! - Plymouth, MN

I had saline implants placed over 11 years ago and loved them up until 2 years ago. They were pretty and gave me no problems. But over the years I aged and gained some weight and my breasts ended up much larger than I ever bargained for! After much consideration I decided to have them removed, without replacement. The surgery was easy (had facelift at same time, which was a bigger deal)... READ MORE

Juvederm Good in Some Areas, Not in Others - Plymouth, MN

I have crevices under the corners of my mouth (oral commissures) that I wanted to try to correct with Juvederm. Also an unneven upper lip. The juvederm corrected my lip very well. It did NOT work on the oral commissures. I think mine are too deep, and also a result of sagging cheeks, so the filler doesn't do the trick :( So I think it is a good product for the lips. READ MORE

No Noticeable Improvement from Oracea

Have tried Oracea for two months now. I have severe redness, spider veins and ocular rosacea. I have not gotten any noticeable improvement in my skin or eyes (which feel stinging, burning sensations all the time) as of yet. We will see if the Derm says I should keep taking it or not. I have had no side effects from it. Luckily, the Dr. gave me a RX card for Oracea for $25 a month - without the... READ MORE

Radiesse Injections to Cheeks - Really Happy with Result! - Edina, MN

I had 2 sessions of Radiesse (1 syringe each) done a week apart. Injections to my cheeks, which are a bit flat, to give high cheekbone look. I am really pleased! Doc did injections thru my mouth, so there are no puncture marks or bruises on my face. He said it would not require any numbing, as this area is not very painful, and he was right. A little sting here and there and we were done... READ MORE

Smartlipo/Vaser Smoothed out my Bra Rolls, Muffin Top! - Edina, MN

I am very pleased so far, but won't have my final result for awhile. Still wearing my lipo garment to bed and a support cami during the day. Also having Triactive laser treatments to speed healing and smooth the result. The... READ MORE

Questions from golfloosh

Liposuction for the Knees

I am 47 years old, and the shortest shorts or skirts I wear are just above the knee. My knees are chubby, and I wonder if liposuction could improve their appearance? Is knee... READ MORE

I had saline implants removed a few years ago. If I had silicone implants put in now would they feel really different?

My saline implants were ok, but firm like a water balloon (of course). No CC or anything. But do silicone implants feel noticeably softer? Or feel more natural? READ MORE

Do breast implants hinder mammograms or make it more difficult to catch breast cancer early?

I have some family history of breast cancer. Would it be too risky for me to have breast implants? READ MORE

I'm glad you are posting your true experience! There is no way on Gods green earth that woman does all of "her" own surgery. And misleading trusting patients by insisting that she does? That is a betrayal of trust that would lead to... READ COMMENT

Your improvement is profound! Enjoy your new look. Don't nitpick. Perfection is not a realistic goal. READ COMMENT

Oh get over it. If a receptionist's attitude dictates your choice of a surgeon, God help you in the OR. READ COMMENT

Well she was rude and wrong not to explain the need of proof of insurance to you. But you were wrong not to understand the need to provide it too. Say you pay in full for an elective surgery, then develop problems in the OR. It happens.... READ COMMENT

Personally I would reschedule your surgery. What did you end up deciding? READ COMMENT
