It's only been 4 weeks since surgery but I couldn't be happier. What an amazing experience and an outstanding doctor. He is very strict about your diet and exercise, but it has gotten me the results that I want. I could't be happier to only have 1 incision which will probably not leave a scar. Thank you Dr. Macik, I would definitely choose your office again if I had to do it all over.
