Procedure(s) I had done:   None


I had liposuction on my abdomen/flanks after having two large babies. I did exhaustive research on whether to do lipo or a tummy tuck. I didn't want to undergo major surgery and have drains in me, and I didn't care about having a bikini tummy. I just wanted to feel good in clothes again look decent in a tankini. At the time of the procedure, I was 5'2 and weighed 123, and the day after surgery, for the first time in years, I saw my waist again. Then I swelled up, and it took me about nine months to look like I did the day after surgery! Then, I easily lost five lbs., and I really believe having the lipo helped me to lose that weight. Dr. Golden hardly ever spoke to me, but his nurse was very nice and accessible. His price was good which is why I chose him, but he probably isn't the best. I got what I wanted: a waist and smaller tummy, but my expectations were very realistic.
