Saddle Bags

on 8/13/12 5:33 pm - St. Thomas, Canada
A year ago I had a circumfrential lower body lift and am very happy with it but now have huge saddle bags.  It's like they are 2 seperate entities because my butt is lifted.  Anyone experience this?

I have saddlebags, too. I'm thinking I need lipo. I really need lipo and an inner thigh lift, but may have to settle for just the lipo due to cost. At least with lipo and shapewear, my thighs would look in proportion to my body.

This sounds common. Can you get a revision?

My circumferential was almost a year ago and I did not get lipo. My surgeon will be adding it on Oct 23 as I go through phase 2 of my plastics which is a revision to my 360 and arms plus thighs and a breast lift. I still have extra skin that needs to be removed from the first procedure. Stuff loosened up and he needs to tighten around a pre existing old school gallblader scar and I still have swinging skin on my arms.

This added a bit of anestesia but the revisions and lipo are at no extra charge.
