Banana hammock correction?

About a year and a half ago I volunteered for a Smart Lipo training with a 30+ year plastic surgeon.

Right before my surgery, while hopped up on Valium, apparently I added banana hammock Lipo to my surgery which was only going to be inner and outer thighs.

I immediately noticed my bottom sags! Not only that but my gluteal fold is deep and extend to the outside of my leg.
ALSO I have a dent in both thighs when he lipoed.

I lost almost 15 pounds (down to 114lbs) trying to decrease the sage.

Here is the kicker... I worked as a patient coordinator for this doctor and several times we as an office discussed that the banana hammock Lipo is always a bad idea. Why would I suggest that? Why would he agree to it while I was drugged up?

I am so disappointed! I already lipoed my flanks, outer/inner thighs and no more fat to give.

Is there anything I can do?

Btw, he fired me once I started complaining about the surgery.

Sorry for the results. Unfortunately your photos did not post! But why would you allow yourself to be a training patient with an inexperienced SmartLipo surgeon? Plus the added weight loss (more)
