Liposuction treatment in Poland solved my problem that I had lived since 10 years. I had the accumulation of fat tissue around the belly button, which occurred after two pregnancies. None exercise could help! My stomach became my obsession. For many years I avoided the beach, the pool and my husband had a ban on touching my belly! It was frustrating! FInally, I've decided on liposuction surgery abroad because of the lower cost for lipo. I came to Wroclaw in July and in a few days I got rid of my horrible complex! I got BodyJet lipo, it was my surgeon's recommendation. The price for liposuction in Poland is much lower than in UK, I've paid around 1,600 GBP. But the most important thing Is that my flat tummy is back and I will spend my next holidays on the beach!
