This doctor had everything 'right' on paper and sold me on himself during our consultation, however my results are so awful :(. After telling me he's frequently asked to fix tunneling done by 'other Dr's' I woke up with tunneling across my whole abdomen. When I asked about this they told me to wait for the healing process to complete. When it still didn't go away he blamed me for it saying I was too 'picky'. He charged $2k more than the other surgeon I consulted with, and my results were awful. I have bulges of fat in my lower abdomen where he made his insertions and tunneling above the insertions where he took out the fat. I now would never feel comfortable showing my stomach to anyone and would have given anything to get my old body back... at least it looked natural instead of lumpy bumpy and misshapen :(. DO NOT go to this doctor for lipo. I had since heard other stories about his lipo procedures with similar results. I only wish i'd heard them before I trusted him with my body.
