I am a 38 year old mother of twin boys with autism. I have a degenerated disc in my back and had a weight problem BEFORE carrying twins full term. I have very little time for myself and don't have time for any pain! My large tummy rolls and breasts were constantly a problem for me and for my sciatica pain. Beginning in May I went to see Dr. Bittner for the first time. I went in for my chin (I hated my double chin photos and always avoided the camera) - and for my upper/lower ab and lovehandles. I cannot even tell you how AMAZED I am by the results. Not only the amount of fat removed, but also the artistic countouring that made my body look absoloutely amazing! I had a waist again! I noticed that my back pain was tremendously better. My husband said to me one day "I know you are going to want to go back again for more" . . . He knows how my weight has plagued me my entire life and also experienced alongside me just how easy my recovery was. My 4 year old boys are a major workout for anyone, and I was never unable to care for them! I decided that my arms and front/back bra rolls were always something that I had been self conscious of, so I decided not to wait another day & make a call to Dr. Bittner's office. Unfortunately, it was busy summer season . . .so I had to wait a few weeks - but again, the procedure was smooth, recovery easy, and results AMAZING. I was hooked. I decided that I wanted to go back and do my hips and inner/outer thighs. When I went back in so soon, Dr. Bittner explained to me that I still had some swelling from the love handles he had removed the past month, so it would not be a good idea to do my hips at that time. I explained to him about how my back had been a major problem for me and how much better I was doing because of the ab reduction. I told him that I knew a breast reduction would really help me, but that I was afraid of how involved that surgery was. He told me that they could do a great job on breast reduction with lipo, and that at my age and with my breasts being mostly fatty tissue, I would have great results.
I decided right then and there to go for it!
WOW! He was right. My breasts are 50 percent smaller, they are NOT lumpy, they are perfect, and my back pain is 75% better than before I first visited Dr. Bittner. I can get around easier. I want to take my boys for long stroller rides because my body feels GREAT! I returned to Dr. Bittner for my final visit one week ago and had my hips done . . .just so they would be in proportion to my much smaller body.
I am soooooooo happy. My procedures with Dr. Bittner have GREATLY improved my life. It is amazing what this doctor can do with liposuction.
It is not scary! There is nothing to be afraid of! I hid my recovery from everyone except my husband and a few close friends that I told. The results are so dramatic. Everything blends well and I just look like I lost 40 pounds!
I also want to say that not only did I get to know Dr. Bittner pretty well from having procedures done 4 different times, but I got to know his staff too and they are ALL wonderful, positive, down to earth, very cool people. The office has a very positive tone and everyone has a great sense of humor.
