Salt Lake City liposuction, need to find the best?
Which Salt Lake City liposuction clinics and doctors have been ranked to be the best, both talent and price? I prefer to stay local but will travel anywhere in northern Utah. Price is a factor and would like to be able to do lipo on the tummy and love hands for under $2,500 total. I will consider paying a few hundred more if the doctor is really top notch. A botched surgery is not, I repeat not, an option for me because this is going to be done while my wife is out of town in March and it needs to be healed up by the time she gets back. I don't want her to be able to tell I had plastic surgery.

You are hiding this from your wife? Can you tell us why? Would she not be supportive of your decision? Does she mock your body and /or weight?

How long will your wife be gone in March?

2 reasons-

1. My wife hates it when I spend money on myself. She doesn't mind when I buy her things or when she spends money on herself, it's only when money is being spent on myself.

2. She is against plastic surgery for men. I know healthier eating and exercise would help but I work 12 hours a day to pay for my family. It's hard to live a healthy lifestyle when I have to focus on work.

She has a tight control over the family finances but $2,500 for my liposuction surgery is an amount I would be able to hide. This is why I want to find a local Salt Lake City liposuction clinic that does not cost too much. She will be gone from March 3rd thru the 31st on a vacation with her mother. The kids will be going the first week with her and that would be the best time for me to get the liposuction surgery done.

Have you been married long? Sounds like there are major issues in your marriage. Is she a control freak? Did you give her a reason to be one?

How much do you fat do you want removed?

Once you answer this post I might be able to give you a concrete response.

It sounds like your wife keeps you on a pretty tight leash (or in other words, whipped ;) )

Now is a time to stand up and tell her your getting liposuction whether she wants it or not. If you make the moolah, why can't you spend a little of it on yourself?

But that aside, I think you should tell us a little bit more about your physical shape. Liposuction should not be used a method to lose weight. You should only do it after you've lost it, and you have areas which still have a little fat left on them (from genetics or hormone levels).

la_angel is right. Most docs will not perform lipo if you are 5 lbs. overweight. It should not be used as a weight loss method.

She is a control freak but she's always been that way. Other than that we don't have any issues that I can think of. We've been together for almost 20 years now. I am here to learn about my options for liposuction, this is a plastic surgery forum not a place I came to talk about this.

I would say maybe 25 to 30 pounds overweight max, all on my stomach. 5 lbs can't be right because I've seen doctors on TV do patients heavier.

robyne00 01-17-2010 08:42 AM

5 lbs is right, as lipo is not meant to be used as a means of weight loss. I know of some credible docs who will do 8-10 lbs, but its for the last few lbs you just can't lose. 25-30 lbs is a lot. That sounds like a diet and exercise issue.

The reason why I asked you a few questions, is because many individuals seeking PS have mental health issues. Professionally speaking, they seem apparent in your scenario. It is not an everyday situation where you to have to hide PS from your significant other.

I know of several surgeons in your area. You can PM me, but I do not think they will perform lipo for 25-30 excess lbs.

Yes, that's too much extra weight for liposuction. Sure, there are some doctors that will do it, but that's unethical for them and possibly jeopardizing their medical license :uh oh:

I remember on a plastic surgery show before they had a guy that was 50 to 70 lbs overweight and he found a surgeon to perform liposuction. That's a big mistake.

And if she is a control freak and this is a recurring problem, this scenario might be the perfect one to finally stand up for yourself (after you lose the extra weight, of course :) )
