Sandra Gatt did not do what I asked her to do. I wanted my protruding belly reduced, to be in proportion to the rest of my body. She agreed to do this, and promised me a flat belly.

This is not what I got.

Without consulting me, she performed lipo on my back and sides, as well as my belly, giving me even reduction all around.

NOT what I asked for!

Because she took so much out of my back and sides, she took almost nothing from my lower abdomen, and nothing from under my arms, which she had also agreed to do. Consequently, my belly is still quite out of proportion and I still have bulging over the sides of my bra.

Also, Dr. Gatt had me stop wearing the compression garments at 4 weeks. I think this was a big mistake and contributed to my belly becoming all flabby afterward.

I would not recommend her; not because I don't think she's a capable and qualified surgeon, but because she did not perform the surgery we discussed. The surgery she performed was not what I wanted, and left me with a very disappointing result.
