Liposuction and Brahicalplasty - Houston, TX

Well I've chosen Dr. Lyos for my next and final round of work in the 'transformation of me". I had a TT in January with MR and it went well (after a big wound healing issue) but still didn't give me the shape I was looking for. Got rid of the big fat and skin role for sure and the huge projection from the muscle being split but still don't really have a waist and now the back part of my hips... READ MORE

This is What Nearly 60 Can Look Like! - Houston, TX

I always knew I would get a face lift and finally did it. I will be 58 next month. Dr and his staff were great, staff at the facility were great and all in all I'm thrilled. Left side behind my ear incision is still a bit messy but everything else is healing up really well. I have a very delicate hairline which seems to have moved back a bit on the left side but Dr says it will settle down... READ MORE

57 Years Young and Don't Want to Go Through the Rest of Life with an Old Lady Stomach. Houston, TX

Lost 70 pounds and kept it off for four years but the lower abdominal roll just won't go away and now I have a huge bulge above the belly button which is a muscle separation I'm told. Consulted with Dr Basu in Houston and he just gave me such confidence that I could do this and get a great result. He was even really good about talking through my Factor V blood clot risk. Can't wait to get... READ MORE

Nearly 60 and the Belly Fat Needs to Go - Houston, TX

So last year I did Cool Sculpting with little obvious results. Having said that I have a pretty good amount of belly fat and maybe the loss just wasn't obvious. I'm not a great candidate for lipo because of some health issues so I decided to give Vanquish a try. So my thoughts after two treatments: -it is not painless! I have some 20 year old scars from an abdominal lap and one of those... READ MORE

Don't Waste Your Time or Money - Spring, Texas

Had upper and lower abdomen and upper arms, very little impact for the cost. I would have been better to just spend a couple of thousand more and just had a lipo. And by the way, this is not painless, it hurts when you are getting done to some degree and after as well. I have a high pain tolerance and am no pain weeny so beware! I'm now spending the money to get the lipo I should have just... READ MORE

Dr A did do the muscle first time but he just did a bit more and it's prefect now. I think we need to recognize this is as much art as science and while I didn't want to go through it again this time was breeze and I went back to work... READ COMMENT

I had the same problem they told me they are lumps of fat that liquified and then became solid again rather than being absorbed. It's a crock, I didn't lose anything in my measurements and it took months for the lumps to go away. ... READ COMMENT
