Firstly, I do not take lightly posting a negative review to defame Dr. Young’s reputation. I want to inform women of the real consequences of my laser lipo procedure and my personal experience. Dr. Young performed laser lipo on my abdomen in winter of 2012. I had a little fat below my belly button (I could pinch a good inch) I wanted removed and was told the laser would also give me some tightening of the skin. The procedure itself was painless. However, my recovery was 6 months in a compression garment, with constant pain when sitting. My stomach was left lumpy and my skin very loose. I have a permanent strange dent in my hip from over-suctioning, and 5 scars from the incisions that were not stitched. Post-op Dr Young offered as a remedy some free VelaShape treatments which were quite painful and did nothing to smooth my results. I went to a plastic surgeon for an opinion to determine why my results were so poor and was told that the laser burned my stomach muscles (the laser doesn’t distinguish between fat & muscle), and that the laser wasn’t “fanned-out” properly for smooth results. I was put on anti-inflammatories for 2 more months and could sit with minimal pain by October 2013. It is now August 2014 and my stomach is still lumpy, unnatural looking, and the skin below my belly button is unnaturally loose. If I bend over it grossly hangs off my body (like a sci-fi movie). Please if you aren’t happy with your stomach post childbirth, do not get this procedure! Go to a qualified plastic surgeon and get a tummy tuck if it really bothers you. Otherwise, embrace your body and be thankful for what you have. I can’t undo the surgery and would wish I had my old natural stomach back!
