I had a lower lift performed by Dr. Sepehr Egrari. I did not end up with the flat abdomen expected from the tummy tuck. Instead, I ended up with a distended abdomen and a hard ball-like area above my navel.
To my surprise, Dr. Egrari blamed it on my weight gain. I was shocked and insulted by this, and I expressed to him that when someone decides to do cosmetic surgery it is to get rid of the stubborn areas that no diet or exercise can get rid of.
The office visit deteriorated to what I consider, in my opinion, to be unprofessional conduct, with Dr. Egrari raising his voice, repeating I should lose weight. He never looked at my abdominal distention or the hard ball-like area; he just kept repeating it was my weight gain.
A few days later he sent me a letter telling me to never come back to his office. By the way, in my opinion, the two sides of the left surgical incision are perfectly aligned, but the right side is crooked.
