I've wanted to get lipo for at least 5 years. No matter what weight I am at (from 165 to 195) my body shape is the same (love handles / no ass / thin face that has worsened with age). They can take some fat and put it in my butt and face too.
However, many of you have seen what I went through in 2015. Would I be out of my mind to consider liposuction of so many areas (and fat transfer) after what went on in 2015?
I even mentioned this to my doctor, and he took it as an affront and said "you cant' use excuses from your past to dictate your present- putting PMMA there was YOUR choice and YOUR mistake - you need to own that and move on". I was like - uh... but yeah I think it's something to consider as to why I am risk averse..."no it is not - what you do in tijuana and had to fix has nothing to do with me"... ok...but that's why I am asking more "risk" questions than other people. He said, "I'll handle your risk...you think I want to get sued? You are not at risk if I am operating on you in the USA which is not Tijuana - but regardless, we discussed that yes, you can die - but if you die, then I lose my license which frankly is worse for me than you at that point [i think this was a joke]"
Soooo...the doctor I chose, unbeknownst to me, turned out to be sort of crazy - though he does have very nice results, especially on men (his practice is focused on men or other "gender specific" changes). Doing lipo on men isn't as easy as it looks, because some surgeons can accidentally feminize the body by sucking out too much of the waist and stuff like that.
He's yelled at me about bringing in to many questions, undermining his decisions, questioning his techniques (this was all just standard "how long do I wear compression garments" and "how much bruising should I expect" and "where are the incisions" questions - he really flipped out when I mentioned cool sculpting - because he said that is some BS device that never works and why am I sitting here wasting his precious time if I think I can get my fat frozen off at a medi spa...
So....now they have $9000 (cuz he wasn't crazy before I paid for surgery) and my pre-op visits (post payment) - he was psycho.
I don't know wtf to do. Maybe he just has a bad bedside manner. Maybe he is insane and unstable. I can't tell which it is - but am I just out of my mind? I don't know how I got so far in the process to now be turning around saying wtf is happening?
Sorry for the long post - I need to make a decision soon because it's not a good situation to leave the money in limbo like this. Thank you!
Part 1: The first year - recovering 1/2" girth lost to Peyronie's Disease (Round 1 & 2 Metacrill PMMA)
Part 2: Things starting to go bad (I had nodules removed and excisions wouldn't heal) (After Round 3)
Part 3: Resolving Round 3 problems caused entirely by USA doctors.
Part 4: All PMMA (from all 3 rounds) hardened 6-12 months after round 3.
