I am a 27 year-old married nurse with two sons, ages 2 and 4. After having two babies, I hated the fact that my stomach looked horrible, covered with stretch marks on saggy, ugly skin. After breast feeding two sons, my breasts were droopy, saggy and looked like deflated balloons. My breasts looked like those of a Grandmother! I didn’t feel good about the way I looked AT ALL. After two pregnancies, I was left with a body that seemed much older than my years. It was hard to feel good about myself and to be with my husband when I wasn’t happy and comfortable in my own skin. Nothing seemed to help the sagging tummy and breasts. The skin had been stretched out like a rubber band and it would never return to “normal.”
I really like Dr. Martello. She was honest with me and I could be open with her. It was important to me that I had found a qualified, Board Certified plastic surgeon that I felt comfortable with. I trust Dr. Martello completely. She held my hand when I went to sleep for surgery. I just remember feeling at ease. After the tummy tuck, I was in a little bit of pain, but it mostly felt tight in the belly area. I had my first postoperative appointment the next day, which is when I saw my tummy for the first time after surgery, without the dressings and binder. I was amazed at how small I was. MY STOMACH WAS FLATTER THAN EVER! Five weeks after my tummy tuck and liposuction, I had my breast augmentation and breast lift. At 6 weeks after surgery, I had decreased by 7 inches around my waist!
My experience with plastic surgery changed my life for the better, and that of my family’s. I am happier, and therefore, a better Mom, wife and person. My body changed physically, but so did my attitude. I am so much more positive now and I think that comes through in all aspects of my life. I am definitely more outgoing. I wouldn’t hesitate to do this again. When people ask me if it was worth it, I don’t even think twice. IT WAS SO COMPLETELY WORTH IT!!!!
