Reviewer: TeenMother

I gave birth at the age of 16. Before my pregnancy, I weighed 125 pounds. At the end of my pregnancy, I weighed 150 pounds. A few months after giving birth, I had lost all of the weight that I had gained. The only things that just wouldn’t go away were the extra skin and stretch marks. The stretch marks started above my belly button and went all the way down to my pubic area. Every time I looked in the mirror, I grabbed the extra skin, wishing that there was a way that I could remove it. I knew that plastic surgery existed, but how could I ever afford it??
One day, I attended a seminar at Huntington Hospital. The plastic surgeon, Dr. Martello gave us information about plastic surgery, all in great detail. A few of Dr. Martello’s patient’s were in the audience and talked about their positive experiences. One of Dr. Martello’s employees said that Dr. Martello had performed a tummy tuck on her and that she was very pleased with the results. I went to a consultation at her office for a tummy tuck and liposuction, Dr. Martello eased my nerves by talking to me. Dr. Martello grabbed the extra skin and tissue located below my belly button while I was in a bent position and said, “See this? This will all go into the trash.” The morning of surgery, the nurse at the surgery center told me that Dr. Martello was a very good doctor and that I was in excellent hands. Dr. Martello stood by me and held my hand while I went to sleep. This made me feel a lot better and more comfortable. I remember her talking to me and then I began to get very sleepy and then I was out cold. I had no pain at all after the tummy tuck and liposuction. This really surprised me!
Now, after surgery, my stomach is so flat that you can bounce a quarter off of it! All of my stretch marks are gone and I now wear a size 8 in pants! I have never worn a size 8 in pants IN MY LIFE! Since the surgery, I have lost 21 pounds! I look 100% percent better. I went from a size 14 in pants down to a size 8! At the 6 week follow up appointment, I lost 12 ¼ inches around my waist! I even decided to have a breast augmentation after this first surgery!
My husband asked me to tell Dr. Martello that he feels like he is with a new woman . . . almost like being with another woman . . .
I get many compliments about the way I look. My hat goes off to Dr. Martello. I am now a woman with a new body and I owe it all to her!

Look As Young As You Feel!, December 24, 2010, 9:15 pm
Reviewer: ExPlayboyBunny

I was a Playboy Bunny in the early 1980’s. As a 25 year-old, I lived in a world full of glamour, celebrities and perfect women. I was one of the sixty-some bunnies at the Los Angeles Playboy Club. We were weighed monthly and suspended if our “hire weight” wasn’t maintained. We were expected to be beautiful and youthful. We were instructed to maintain our “bunny image” or else we were suspended. Nose jobs, boob jobs, liposuction and acid peels were all fairly commonplace in a time before Extreme Makeover and The Swan. Weekly parties at Hef’s mansion, guest appearances, conventions, sporting events and working as a waitress at the Playboy Club were squeezed in between trips to the gym, the tanning salon, the hairdresser and appointments for manicures and facials. I knew then that I would always take maintenance steps to preserve my looks. I would absolutely refuse to “age gracefully.” What all the bunnies knew then was that the earlier you started with “nips and tucks”, the better the results you ultimately achieved. This was because youthful skin has greater elasticity and this can help you achieve a more natural looking result.
When I turned 40, I had what I will call my mid-life crisis. I quit my job, divorced my husband of 14 years and found a younger man, I had the typical cliché experience of waking up one morning and decided that I hated going to work. I recognized that after years of counseling and trying to forgive a man who had cheated on me . . . that I just didn’t care anymore.

My career path had always taken me down interesting roads. I now found myself in a male-dominated industry that was very focused on entertainment, fine dining and a world of perpetual celebration. I happened to be a little older than my male counterparts. It was important to my position in this job to appear not only attractive, but professional and polished as well.
Back to the younger man (who has movie-star good looks), in case you are thinking that I pursued plastic surgery at his urging, that’s not the case. I actually had to convince him that this was something that I really wanted to do for myself and not to please anyone else.
My face was falling. My skin had lost much of its youthful elasticity and I had a jowlish look that made me look old and tired. I really needed a facelift. After leaving Dr. Martello’s office for a plastic surgery consultation, I had a list of previous clients who were willing to discuss their plastic surgery experiences with me. Dr. Martello encouraged me to call them so that I could make an informed decision and know exactly what to expect. I called a patient named Susan who was about my age and had a surgery similar to mine. I had a list of questions. Susan raved about the experience and said that she only wished that she had done it years before! She gave me firsthand feedback on the fact that there was literally no pain and minimal bruising. Susan was great to talk to and reinforced my feelings about Dr. Martello as an excellent plastic surgeon to perform my surgery.
I can honestly tell you that I experienced no real pain with the face and neck lift. I really hadn’t told anyone about my surgery so I looked forward to surprising my friends at the holiday parties that we had scheduled. When I went to the first of the parties at ten days after surgery, my friends couldn’t believe how great I looked! Everyone agreed that the surgery had taken at least fifteen years off of me! No one could believe how natural my face looked and how little bruising there was just days after surgery.
In this day and age, we have the technology to live longer and live healthier. So, why not look how you feel? I am happy with my decision and ecstatic with my results! You only live once, so why not live it in a body that reflects your youthful inner spirit? ! THANK YOU DR. MARTELLO!!!

Call Me Vain, December 22, 2010, 1:03 pm
Reviewer: SkinCareKathy

My name is Kathy. I am a 65 year old aesthetician. I was born in Budapest, Hungary seven months before World War II. I have always wanted to look my best. Everything was going fine until I reached menopause at age 47. My weight started to creep up from hormone replacement. Every morning when I looked at myself in the mirror without my clothes on, I hated what I saw. The fat on my tummy was thick underneath the skin. The disgusting extra skin hung over itself like wrinkled material when I bent over and this reminded me of my poor mother. I also had extra loose skin on my back underneath my bra line. Even though I worked out at the gym, I was disgusted with myself and felt completely helpless. I started to think more and more about having a tummy tuck and some liposuction. I knew that I couldn’t afford these surgeries, but I stashed some cash away in an envelope every few weeks. I saved this money just in case I decided to have the surgeries performed someday.
When I went to meet Dr. Martello in consultation, I was very impressed with her. She was very honest and knowledgeable. She was not at all pompous like the other male doctors were. I felt comfortable with her. After reading her list of credentials, I was even more impressed.
I decided to have Dr. Martello perform a tummy tuck and liposuction on me. I was especially fearful of the general anesthesia. For support, my plastic surgeon held my hand while I was put to sleep. The day after my surgery, at the doctor’s office, when Dr. Martello removed the binder that I wore around my belly, I was so surprised at how slim I had become! Dr. Martello took measurements in her office at 5 weeks after surgery. My waist went down from 42 ½ inches to 33 ¾ inches!
After my recovery, it was so nice to wear form-fitting clothes again. The old pants just didn’t fit me anymore. They were very, very baggy. All the skirts with fixed beltlines were also loose on me. I had to buy totally new skirts. I enjoyed my new, trim and “girlish” look very much. I got compliments from many people. I fulfilled my old dream. And it was all well worth it! Thank you Dr. Martello and to all your caring staff!
