Okay.. My stomach is out of control and I dont know If I really want a tummy tuck. I dont want a huge scar or long downtown, but I need alil more then normal lipo.
I look at before and after pix of Lipo and I know for sure I'll be disappointed if I just go off of what Ive seen. Its no dramatic difference.
I stumbled upon Large Volume Lipo, Has anyone had it...How was was it?
Does anyone know of any doctors that do it near Atlanta GA?

Hey Journey,

You're not alone in wanting dramatic transformations. I'm not sure how long you've been on this message board, but quite a few ladies here have done large volume lipo. I'm planning to have mine done in 2 weeks, June 6th. Unfortunately, the one I'm going to is in Houston, TX. I haven't gone to him yet, but from what I hear, he's worth the travel. Check out his website and his before and after pics www.drnewall.com. He's by far one of the most aggressive surgeons in the country that can do it safely and contour beautifully.

From what I've seen, not experienced, his incisions from tummy tucks are smaller than other plastic surgeons. Maybe you can ask about him in the tummy tuck section of the message board. I've also heard his scars are in good placements too.

Several girls are planning to go to him in the summer and some already have been. From what I've heard, they're not disappointed.

I hope this helps. There's quite a few threads regarding large volume lipo, you should use the search button.

Good luck.

I had LVL done in 2012 by Dr Newell and absolutely love the results!! email me for pics. Dr Newell was very professional and the staff were all very friendly. My only regret was not taking his advice and having the tummy tuck and Lipo done at the same time. I will be going back for a tummy tuck to tighten up and get rid of the loose skin. I will also be getting a breast lift + implant. I wont lie, the recovery after surgery is BRUTAL! but totally worth it! I was in bed the first 5 days were the worst, i needed help showering and changing bandages. I wore the garments they provided at least 5-6 weeks.'

Immediately after surgery I was rushed out of the facility, still blinking and sleepy eyed.. I wish I would have stayed there overnight, hopefully that will be an option one day. I stayed 2 days at a nearby hotel and the next day they sent out a nurse to check on me which was really nice (no extra charge). by day 2 I was feeling well enough to make the ride home (I lived 4 hours away). You will need someone to care for you for at least 5-7 days post surgery. I did not go back to work for 2 weeks. It took about a month to see the total weight loss- once the swelling went down. Dr Newell removed 11 lbs of fat total. I wish he had done the full 20 lbs but that would've probably been unsafe.

Dr newell is amazing! if you want to get any work done he is the man!!
