Dr. Pitman did my liposuction on my hips in 2000. He also removed the fat from under my eyes and on the outside of my thighs. He tried to talk me into a lower face lift which I absolutely didn't need. I was told by him that the fat on the hips would not return nor the fat under the eyes. I was left with scarring on one thigh and uneven hips. The fat is back under my eyes as well as on the hips, exactly as it was prior to surgery three years ago. Apparently the only interest Dr. Pitman has is seeing his latest text in print full of his patients before and afters. I was very ill following the surgery. He telephoned me. I thought to find out how I was feeling. Acutually he tried to talk me into putting my photos in his latest text. I was appalled. I returned to Dr. Pitman a few months ago to show him the results of his surgery. He said I was "perfect". I will have another liposuction but would never consider Dr. Pitman as my surgeon.
