Lipo Patient says "90210" Doc Sucked

8/18/2008 7:51 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

One of the stars of "Dr. 90210" has a patient who claims he doesn't have the stomach to bear what Dr. David Matlock did to him.

TMZ obtained a lawsuit, filed today in L.A. County Superior Court, in which Kevin Hawkins claims Dr. Matlock verbally promised that he could give Hawkins a V shape waist and a flat stomach after undergoing liposculpturing.

Hawkins says the results were not even a possibility because he had "macerate fat" behind his intestine.

Hawkins is asking for a refund: $8,500 in surgery costs, $150 for blood work, $163 for prescriptions, $1,851 in hotel costs, $386 in plane fare, and $3898 in post appointment care. Grand total -- $14,992.98.

Hawkins says as a result of the surgery "he endured pain ... as well as substantial psychological trauma from his disappointment." He's asking for $500,000 in pain and suffering. And we're asking him to give us that amount for having to read about his intestines.

Sorry. There are never guarantees with any surgery. Tired of people trying to make a quick buck off of their stupidity. How vain can one be anyway?

"V shape waste"

Don't you mean "waist"? Honestly, if you're going to go around pretending to be journalists, at least learn to proofread.

You mean waist as in the mid portion of the torso. No one wants v shaped garbage (waste). Come on boys and girls. They cover spelling in grammar school!

Plastic surgery is not a cure for being a couch potato. People age. 20 year olds are supposed to look like 20 year olds. 40 year olds are supposed to look like 40 year olds. You want to look better?... Eat right, exercise and keep otherwise healthy habits. Anyone who wants liposuction clearly dropped the ball. Your fault dude!

Instead of these so called quick fixes, how about losing the weight chubby, the old fashion way? Quick fixes never work in the long run.

This is why you see Dr. Rey turn away so many people. He KNOWS which people realistic expectations, and which don't.
