"My whole life, I’ve been an athlete and muscular, so this “mom bod” was not an easy pill to swallow. At 25, I unknowingly entered into a relationship that would tear away my health, my shape, and my spirit. After miscarrying beautiful, identical twins that went to Heaven, the depression that followed, and then a complicated pregnancy with my rainbow, my body just became something foreign. At 32, when I realized my marriage had no hope, I began a health and fitness journey to begin what I knew would soon be a single mommy life. I want my daughter to be proud of me. I don’t want to duck out of photos. I took up Keto and a morning gym routine and lost 60 lbs. When I realized that my C-section left me with more skin than the gym could fix, and breastfeeding made my already massive breasts unmanageable, I needed a miracle.
Dr. Z was my miracle. I was referred to him by a colleague and was beyond nervous for my consultation. Within about 10 minutes, I fell in love with him and his staff and knew hope was on the horizon. Dr. Z made me feel comfortable and let me be me and explained everything in terms I could understand. When I realized how many separate surgeries, the span of time, and mostly, the cost it was going to require to reach my goals, nerves set in again. Francis really listened and helped me choose a plan of attack that made sense demands at work, travel schedule and lifestyle. And Sandra…what can I even say? I just adore this woman. She always took extra time to chat and share a few laughs. Every appointment feels more like a family visit than anything. MJ, Michelle and everyone else in the office has had an impact on my recovery and my comfort as I heal.
I’m only 1-month post op and I don’t feel like a “new woman,” but I feel like ME again. Dr. Z helped me fall head over heels in love with MYSELF again. The best part is even with the Tummy Tuck & Breast Reduction, and Breast Lift I was not out of work for more than a week. I literally can’t even imagine how incredible I’ll feel in a month, 2 months, and so on as the healing continues. I’m forever grateful for this amazing team!"
