In June 2017 I did the TriSculpt procedure and paid $6500.00 on June 26, 2017 in full at the initial consultation. I did not lose any fat, my stomach and waistline remains the same as when I went in for the surgery. I did everything they suggested including going for all the follow-up appointments and was told each time that the area was still swollen and will take time to show results.
On May 24, 2018 I was sent this letter.
Please see CMO decision below.
Per Dr. Lyons:
Lifestyle change and pt personal discipline combined with lipo contouring
Achieve the results we predict at SB
Weight gain after surgery coupled with a request for mire lipo is a paradox
I DENY a revision consideration until pt accepts responsibility of the outcome by returning to preop or hopefully losing weight
Lipo is not a weight reduction technique
Please feel free to call me at the office to discuss.

Of course I have not been able to lose this weight, which is why I resorted to doing the surgery. In fact, I gained weight from the initial 215 lbs to hovering over 220 lbs.
I am so disappointed and feel ripped off. Not once did they bring me in to see how they could address my concerns or redo the procedure. Right after I started complaining and asking about Dr. **** (Doctor name redacted) who performed the procedure, I was told he no longer works for Sono Bello. That drew my suspicions that perhaps he botched my surgery. Did he really remove the fat from my body? How do we really know what was done since there is no memory of what happened that day? All I remember is going under the general anesthesia and getting into my friend’s car for the ride home after the surgery.
I think this is a sham and people should not do this surgery. I would like to join a class action suit against them even though this will not change my results but at least I could recoup my hard earned money.
Do not do this surgery with Sono Bello. It is a rip-off and caused me many sleepless nights and unhappiness.
Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
