Do not go to this plastic surgeon. I went to this surgeon 4 years ago. I went in for an areola reduction and liposuction of the abdomen and one other procedure. yngvar hvistendahl messed up horribly on two out of three procedures. My areolas looked deformed and my abdomen had a deep dent on the lower right side. While in his surgical office the nurses where kindly trying to convince me to get an extra two procedures. Liposuction on my back and breast implants. Good thing that I chose not to.
I basically threw 8 thousand dollars down the drain. But believe me, when your body looks very deformed the last thing that you care about is the money you spent. I had so many hopes to look so great after this surgery and instead I was terrorized daily when I came out of the shower and came face to face with the large mirror over my bathroom sink.
I lived with this deformity for three years until I decided to fly to L.A. to visit a surgeon who I had a very good feeling about. I just knew that he would be the one to help me. And help me he did. I now look about 90% normal. His surgery was 6 months ago and my tiny scars are still healing but i look normal again and I cant believe it. Now when I come out of the shower I dance infront of the mirror. Please, stay away from this horrible man. I still ask myself, "How can such an "experienced surgeon get two out of three surgeries wrong?" I mean, if he had gotten one surgery slightly wrong then that would be understandable but he performed 2 out of 3 surgeries horribly wrong. Go to someone else, not only will you throw 8 thousand $ down the drain but you will loose 3 years of your life.
