In 2003 I had lap band surgery and lost about 50 kilos, during that time I had 2 children. I was desperate to get rid of all the saggy skin, especially in my thighs, I went to my local doctor who referred to me Richard Bloom. Mr Bloom suggested that I have a body lift in two operations, this first would be the upper body, including breasts, ribs, and back, and the second to be tummy, hips, buttock and thighs. I came away thinking yes I want to do this and felt extremely comfortable with Mr Bloom. I decided to do this and have done so. I am extremely happy with my new body.
My first appointment I think I went thinking there will be nothing he could do and was very apprehensive as I looked horrible. Mr Bloom made me feel right at ease and that the ideas I had about my own body were valid and what I wanted to achieve was achievable. I walked away with a plan of action and a quote which was very detailed and explained to me in detail. It took me a couple of weeks and I booked in my procedure. I did my body lift in two stages, the upper body in 2011 and the the bottom have in 2013. In both surgeries I felt in excellent hands and I was in hospital for about 3-4 days. The pain was bearable and at all times the hospital staff at Cabrini tried to make me comfortable. I couldn't have asked for better. It has been 6 months since the last operation and I could not be happier, the scars are great and will get better over time like they did from the first operation.
