I should tell you that living in Chicago and with all the socialit and trend, Dr. Ross's name to come about.

However, I have to agree with the first review reagarding her tummy tuck. I too had the same experience with bulging lower abdomen when all I needed was a tummy tuck for my stretch loose skin.

I work out 5x a week at least 1-2 hours, I weighed 98-100 lbs and not a lot of fat on my body. I now hate my stomach because it protrudes in my lower area. I had gone back to Dr. Ross for my follow ups and all he said was..."Oh, maybe your fat just traveled down your abdomen" Maybe?? How can a doctor say "maybe" when he should know what's going on. I then went back and now he said, I "think" a lipo can fix that.

Now as I said before, I had the flattest stomach side view and front view except for stretch mark and excess skin. I should not have a bigger stomach now!! I don't even look good in a tight fitting dress because my lower belly protrudes and I feel like I need to wear spanx.

Now, as far as my breast augmentation. I specifically said I want under the muscle, despite of what he thought I had "enough" tissue to go over the muscle. But since he is the doctor, he inisisted and insisted and I believed him. And now I am left with unsightful breast with rippling from the top to the side, to the bottom. I went back several times for my follow up and addressed my concern.

First he said, "Oh, its just healing, I don't see any rippling." This is after waiting for almost 2 hours in the waiting room and it took him 2 seconds to see me to rush to another patient.

When I finally went back for a complaint reason, "He said, OH, I misjudged your tissue I made a mistake, I will discount your revision.

So yes, for the first reviewer, I can relate to your comp;aints for the same thing happened to me. And the second reviewer, where are your facts other than to provide your biased opinion.

For those of you who wants to see results, I can provide fact. By the way, I have also asked for my medical records and it took the office 6 months to give it to me. And on top of that, none of my follow up visits where ever noted. Isn't this against HIPAA regulation?

It's been a year since my tummy tucka and breast augmentation and you can bet I have been very patient to see if any results would change for the better but only got worse.

I will be seeing Dr. Ross for complaints on my surgery and my medical records!
