Thigh lift/ Mini Tuck as a final option!!!
butt

I'm only 28 and I have the body of 60 year old. So far I have had 4 plastic surgeries. The initial surgery I had was to fix a small bump i had on my left leg. This surgery was performed by a family physician which claimed to be a plastic surgeon. I know it's my fault. However, I was left deformed and since then I have been seeking consultations and help all over. I had 3 corrective surgeries. After every surgery I come out with small percentage of improvement and huge disappointment.I had spent so much money and time. I need help what should I do?? I never been over weight. But i have stretch marks everywhere, literally everywhere. I have small holes all over my thighs...I have cellulite all over my thighs as well and butt. I went with the surgeon who favoured lipo over thigh lift or mini tuck as i havent had kids and didn't want to have scars for live. Also, if a scar was done wrong there is no way it can be fixed and that scares me too. Now I'm wondering if my last option would be a mini tuck and thigh lift? or maybe there are other things I could have done to fix the problem? any recommendations???

You fell into the trap of a WANNABE PLASTIC SURGEON. It is not as much your fault as it is hi/her misrepresentation of their abilities.
As for your results and treatment. STOP. DO NOT DO (more)

It looks like you have had too much, poorly performed liposuction. Unless you have lost a lot of weight, you should not have a tummy tuck or thigh lift.
You may need fat grafting. (more)
