I'm a fairly fit 32 year woman with one child. I literally had only the "mom pooch" I was concerned with. I spoke with Mr. Bacon and his staff for over a year while I worked to save money for the the smart lipo procedure. Before I went, everyone was so helpful and prompt with their responses to my questions. I decided to ignore the bad reviews as he and his staff repeatedly told me I was a perfect candidate because of my small stature. However after the procedure everything changed. He nor his staff would return my call. And after two follow ups, that I forced scheduled because he wouldn't see me, I was told he Needed to go back in?! That was crazy to me because of my size going in!! No weight gain and same habits before the surgery. Now, over a year out, NO CHANGE. I even have some scarring that I'm stuck with as a reminder of my bad decision. To further exacerbate an already terrible situation, I get an email telling me they are closing the practice only to find out he's now working somewhere else doing the same thing!!!! Please, if I can warn anyone, I will. Go to anyone else but not him. I can provide pictures for people to see and be aware of the outcome before getting this procedure from this man. I know that I won't get my money back and that's my mistake I'll have to deal with but hopefully I can help someone else before they make the same mistake.
