Tummy Tuck

Hes very rude and arrogant. I had a full tummy tuck and was suppose to get lipo to flanks. My scars ended up being high on my hips and uneven and thick. I was small just mainly loose skin from c-sections and I had love handles. I dreamed would get lipo done to them.and was told I will lipo your flanks. I have a hump of extra skin and fat on my left side and a scar on each side so high it goes up my waste. My scar is thick and it's a year later. I tried to talk to him about it over all my visits through the year. He was rude and arrogant and admitted he didn't do enough lipo when I finally tried to speak up. My feelings are so hurt. I was left with extra skin and a hump of fat on left side. My scar is lower by alot on left side higher on right side .He didn't offer to fix flank area and I ask and ask about my options with it. I will never go back to such a uncaring Dr.again. It looks like I had no lipo done but I payed for full tummy tuck with lipo to flanks.Rude and could care less about his patients feelings and concerns.

GREAT EXPERIENCE

I only had a great experience with Dr. Telepun. I went in for an evaluation visit. He spent an hour with me going over all my options. There was no pressure at all to do one procedure over another. Explained all the risks, benefits and what his plan would be before I went under the knife. I would recommend Dr. Telepun and his group to everyone .....
