One Very Very Very Happy Patient - Hawthorn, AU
After loosing 70 kg of excess weight I was...
I'm not going to pretend that any of these processes have been easy, however the nursing staff at the hospitals Richard chooses to operate from, his anaesthetist, his staff at his rooms (Megan, Katie and Kirsty) and Richard himself have been amazing. They have been incredibly patient and have answered all my questions all whilst dealing with and supporting an anxious and at times somewhat neurotic patient!
A friend of mine told me when I was considering having my most recent surgery done that since I had the excess skin removed from my stomach (i had body contouring procedure) she told me that she had not noted the excess skin on my arms (bless her), however what she had noticed was that since I had the body contouring procedure done my confidence had grown and that as a result I now "sparkled".
Now when people tell me I look great, I am no longer like teflon (note - it does not hit me and slide right off - however sometimes I find myself looking at myself a little too long in the mirror because I can not believe it is me!!), I believe that I look great and IT IS ME in the mirror and although I have done a lot of the work to enable this transformation myself I would not look as great as I do if it had not been for Richard and his team.
