My Story for Free Lipo - Trina B.

It is our goal at Pacific Lipo to help patients achieve a new image that reshapes the way they live. Each day in our office we see happy patients who are thankful for the work we’ve done. They share their personal stories with us about how liposculpture has had a positive impact on their lives. Pacific Lipo is extremely fortunate and grateful for having such great friends and clients. 

To say thank you, we would like to give back - Pacific Lipo offered a third free lipo 

contest. Our Director of Surgery and lipo specialist, Rod Davis, PA-C, has helped thousands of people reshape the way they live and we would love to help more.

Pacific Lipo is excited to announce Trina B. as our 3rd winner for our Free Lipo contest!  Trina has participated in our contest twice and has received a touching amount of support from her family and friends.  Trina has a story that many of our patients share.  She struggled with her military career due to her inability to stay within body standards.   Unable to change her shape with diet and exercise, Trina turned to Pacific Lipo for help.  

Read more about Trina and her story for Free Lipo...

Hello my name is Katharina, Trina for short.  I have always struggled with weight.  I was always ok with my looks, but always wished I weighed less like all my friends.  I guess it just ran in the family.  When I got older I decided to join the military to serve my country and do something greater with my life than the dental schooling I had just completed, something important.  I weighted a little too much to join, so all I ate was salad for about two months and ran every day.  I barely got down to my max weight for my 5’4” height which was 154 lbs.  I looked good but as soon as I went to boot camp and worked out so much that I needed the three meals a day they let us eat and ate what I could I gained a lot of weight again.  By the time I was done with my schooling I was back up about 15 lbs. M y whole naval career (which was about three and a half years) I struggled with weight.  I weight too much and every single time weigh ins came around I could pass my exercise portion but struggled with the weigh in and tape.  My problem areas got me every single time.  Of course I had to work out, and never ate a lot but still, I struggled with my weight.  IT was so depressing, and working around a bunch of male sailors I got teased a lot.  My husband who happens to just be in shape can tell me as much as he wants that I look ok, but it still hurts me.  I did exceptionally well in my navy years but eventually I got separated for failure to control my weight.  This happened about a month and a half ago, and was crushing.  I didn't give up, I still run every day and eat even better than I used to but still struggle.  I just don’t know what to do anymore besides try to live a healthy lifestyle.  I've given up everything I like and tasted good including alcohol.  This is very depressing on top of the discouraging fact that I cannot lose my weight.  If I could just get rid of the fat on my stomach and hips I could be happy, and I’m sure it would stay off since I live a pretty healthy lifestyle.  I hope you guys take my story in consideration.  My friends humored me a little, but it doesn't hurt to try now does it?
Thanks much,

"I had my procedure done today. I was so nervous, but the entire staff made me feel like family and comfortable. They were also very helpful the entire time, constantly making sure that i felt comfy. During the surgery, Rod made sure i was ok and engaged in conversation with me to distract me from any discomfort i may have felt. Everyone is so friendly, but professional at the same time. All my needs were met, and they made sure i was ok before i left. One of the girls even helped me carry my stuff to my car :). I definitely recommend pacific lipo to everyone who is seeking a place to go get lipo at. You will get the professional results you are looking for, at a reasonable price. I wish I could give more than 5 stars :)"

SMART Goal Setting for New Years Resolutions

Need some help managing your New Years Resolutions?  Follow these tips and see what the Pacific Lipo family hopes to work on in 2013.

Believe it or not, the holiday season has flown by and 2013 is already here!  This is the time of year for people to make (not break!) their New Years Resolutions.  Weight loss and healthy eating are among some of the most popular goals that are made, however they can also be some of the hardest to maintain.  Here are some tips on how you can set your New Years Resolutions and follow through!

Set SMART goals this New Years.  

  • S = Specific
  • M = Measurable
  • A = Attainable
  • R = Realistic
  • T = Timely

    Be specific about your goals!  What exactly do you what to change and how are you going to do it?  Don't just say "eat healthy" - what exactly in your diet needs to change? How are you going to do it?


    Set goals that can be measured, that way it will be easier for you to manage and track your progress to see if you have followed through.


    Let's be real folks, make a resolution that you can attain!  It is easy to lose motivation when your resolution is out of reach.


    Your goals should be something that you can achieve, whether that is financial, physically, or mentally.  This goes hand-in-hand with setting Attainable goals.


    Your resolution should follow a time line.  Instead of saying "I want to lose 10 lbs this year" set a goal to lose 2 pounds each month.  Not only will it seem more attainable, but it will help you follow your resolution all year long!

    Here are some of the 2013 Resolutions from the Pacific Lipo Family.  Now that we have the basic idea down, we are going work on making these SMART resolutions!

    Try New Foods
    "I'm a sassy mama with a Hispanic background and I love my Mexican food, but I'm starting to realize that I'm missing out on a lot of other good stuff!  My goal for 2013 is to try new foods and expand my horizons.  Step 1: Sushi.  Reservations are set for Monday, here I come!" -Letty

    Focus on Toning - More Squats!
    "I work in an amazing office with amazing coworkers and clients.  I'm constantly talking with people on how to improve body image and I get some great tips myself!  I personally would like to work more on toning  my gluteus maximus, aka my booty!" -Stef

    Spend Less Time at Home and More Time Exploring New Places
    "Here I am living in one of the most beautiful parts of the country and I keep catching myself going to the same places and doing the same things.  This year I want to take advantage of my surroundings and improve my quality of life - I want to spend less time at home and more time exploring new places, especially outdoors.  Ever heard of Three Sisters Waterfalls? I'm checking it out next week!" -Becky
