Procedure(s) I had done:   None


I really liked Dr. Bittner, however, I was uninformed going into the procedure. I think cosmetic surgeons give their patients way too much credit for being fully informed about the procedures they are having done. Dr. Bittner used a local and I was in and out in two hours. I had my abdoman and love handles done. I still have numbness after two months. There is some dimpling and numbness on my stomach. I feel uncomfortable calling the office about it because the nurse had told me that most of their patients who have liposculpture never return for their followup photos (implying that patients just don't want to be bothered returning for a photo). Immediately following the procedure I kind of panicked and called the office with some fears I had about the results etc. They were there to answer my questions but I felt I was annoying them and perhaps considered problematic. I am sure that Dr. Bittner is very good in his field but I would like to hear other patients results/experiences. Is it unusual to have numbness after 2 months?
