This has been quite an experience. I definitely recommend to anyone considering this. Diet and exercise did not do what this procedure did to me. I am able to wear clothes that I otherwise could not. As for the procedure, everything was clearly explained to me from the beginning. Dr Ahmadi, all the staff, and nurses were very caring and professional before, during and after the procedure. Thank You! I almost forgot to mention that I live in Austin and the drive was worth it!
