Three years ago I began my journey to a healthier me, I was 265lbs, unhealthy, and undernourished. I have always struggled with weight and after giving birth to my two beautiful children, who are 16 and 10, I was morbidly obese and a size 22 or 3XL. Through education, healthy eating, and exercise, I lost 115lbs. It wasn't a sprint or a quick fix, I decided that this was going to be a lifestyle change. After losing the weight, I was left with sagging skin, a constant reminder of where I was and the person that I lost literally. After all my hard work, I still was haunted by the past every time I looked in the mirror, so I began considering plastic surgery. As a nurse, this wasn't an easy decision and not one I took lightly as I approach any surgery with its risks and benefits. I researched different surgeons and procedures for a year prior to this decision and selected Dr. Patronella. After the consultation in his office, I knew that this was the place for me. He was honest, professional, and gave me a realistic approach on what we could do. I had a True Form tummy tuck, breast lift with augmentation, buttock lift, and lipo to hips and outer thighs.
I am now one year post op and consider Dr. Patronella and his staff like family. They were there for me every step of the way. I could not have asked for a better experience or a better result. I am so excited with my new body, my hard work finally shows. I have a six pack!!! I am now a size 6!!!! Because of my newfound confidence, I now have doors opening for me that I never would have imagined at 36. I am doing modeling part time with most photographers thinking I'm 10 years younger than I am. My results are amazing and nothing short of pure genius!!! My future is even more exciting as I have decided that I will begin training for a bikini competition and competing in the next 6 months.
Thank You!!! I am forever grateful to You!!!!!
