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!
