 Please read this before going to Sono Bella. This is not good. I am 41 year old male.  I do not drink, smoke or do drugs. I had gained some weight. In 2012 I went to Sono Bella to get a kick start to the body I had several years ago. I met with Bailey. Great lady. She told me that if I could pinch it, they could suck it out. I wanted to get rid of the fat on my chest. She also talked me into getting my upper and lower abs also. I had a low BMI I met with Dr Pittman- Waller. She reassured me that she would get rid of my boobies, fat on my lower and upper abs. 1st procedure Sept. 2012. The nurses and Dr Pittman were great.

After the procedure Dr. Pittman called to see how I was. My swelling was not even and it looked like I had more fat on my left side of my abs, right side of my chest was large and the shelf below my belly button was still there. I did look a little flatter. I was confused because it seem like I still had considerable fat on my chest and abs left. No one said it looked right. 1st check up. Dr Pittman said it looked great. My right side of my chest was larger and Knots were forming. I showed her a big fat lump on my left ab area . Right side of rounded left side fatty squared. And my shelf on my lower abs was still there. She said it was all swelling and it would go away. She told me I needed to rub those areas and they would go away. Month check up. Everyone says it looks awful. I am embarrassed. I wore my support garments 20 hours out of the day.

By Dec. my right side of my chest was much larger than my left. Peers  at work would stop me to see what was wrong with my chest. I had formed long horizontal dense tissue in my right side of my chest. I met with my regular doctor, Dr Geyer. He also said that it was an awful job and sent me to ARA for a sonogram and Xrays. It showed horizontal lines of dense tissue. The affects of surgery. I went back to Pitman Because I trusted her and asked what I should do. I asked her if I should go to another surgeon? She said she would take care of it. In Jan.  she made an incision under my right areola and cut out lines of dense tissue.(Yes, she cut them out)  Now, the areola on my right side is permanently stretched because of the scar on the base of it is much lower than my left side because of less fat in my lower chest. It dimples when I lift my arm. I have scar tissue now.  I look more deformed.

At my 6th months I look nothing like the pics on their site and no one beside Sono Bella says it looks good.  I made an appointment with Dr, Pittman she said she would meet with me. When I got there they told me she wouldn't meet with me. I could hear her in the next room. I met with a Dr Lauren Crawford. She was rude and short with me from the start. I showed her the clump of fat on my left ab, my shelf below my belly button, one flabby breast and the other one with a larger areola and lower. She said that they only can take 70% of the fat. I asked why they don't have that on the web. She could answer that. I asked why then did Bailey say that if I could pinch it ya'll could suck it out and why did Dr Pittman agree? She could not answer that. She told me I don't know what a flat stomach or a flat chest looks like and then I showed her pictures of me.  Stumped her again. I even offered to walk over to Central Market with her and have people Say if you did a get good job or not. She said, "NO" She got mad.

While a nurse was in the room she told me I come in all the time and sexually harass the nurses with my derogatory remarks and that she had gotten many complaints about me. (I'm gay. If she actually spoke to Dr Pittman or Bailey or the other nurses, she would know this) I told her this has ended and that I was going to get a second opinion From a Dr. Cameron in Westlake. Pissed, she said, "fine, I will redo your procedure", Picked up my file and left. The nurse asked me if I wanted to schedule another appointment. I said, "she just accused me of sexually harassing the nurses and now that I am going to get a second opinion she is going to redo the procedure?"  I did not. I met with Dr Cameron and he said it was a bad procedure. It would cost me over $6000 to redo what Sono bella has messed up. He does not recommend going in my right side of my chest for a 3rd time. I am permanently damaged. I will not be able to take my shirt off again. So If you would like to meet in a public place,  I will give you a disc of all the pictures that sono bella took of me( a very nice nurse gave them to me). You will see that I have done my part to lose weight. The pics will show my sides and back are smaller. You will also get a copy my second opinion dated this May 2013 from Doctor Cameron and copies of my xrays with all my paper work. And I will show you in person what they have done.
