I never ate the fun food and I exercised 5 days a week and just couldn't make the changes I was working toward. Then, a friend who had breast implants years ago gave me the best advice. She said that if I knew that surgery would change my life, I had to do it. She understood that I was not seeking perfection, I was seeking liberation.
That afternoon, I scheduled an appointment with Dr. Schlesinger. I honestly didn't expect sincerity and compassion from the surgeon. I left the office stunned that he had been so genuine and caring with me. He heard what I said, and understood what I meant, and gave his full effort to help set me free.
