Bad surgery

I had Dr. Hughes do surgery on my arms. I just wanted the cut to the top to reduce the wing look. He talked me into Lipo and my arms look terrible. The tops are smaller than the bottoms and one arm is lumpy. Shame on me for letting him and shame on him for doing both at the same time. It was very painful for I had to wear the sleeves for about 3 months and they would cut into the incisions and therefore very painful. I would not recommend him to anyone. He was not even willing to help me with options to correct the surgery.
