I chose Dr. LoMonaco because he is simply THE BEST! There are not enough words to describe his skill, care, talent, and bedside manner. I am 7 years post-Gastric bypass, and had the 1st phase of excess skin removal in July of 2013. This included a lower body lift, breast lift, and breast augmentation. The results were immediate and AMAZING! Dr LoMonaco allowed the "me" who had been living under all that excess skin, to shine though. I no longer need to tuck myself into my skinny jeans, or wear padded bras. Now when I look in the mirror, my body reflects how I have felt since I initially lost all the weight, which is: thin, fit, healthy, and proportionate. My scars look amazing, and the healing was quick and painless. Dr. LoMonaco is very experienced, and take the time to explain everything, and prepare you for what you will experience. His staff is wonderful, knowledgeable, and very accommodating. I was nervous about traveling from out of town to have surgery, but it felt more like a vacation, than a surgery. I went in to the operating room with a smile on my face, and months later, I'm still smiling. I highly recommend Dr. LoMonaco for anyone has lost a significant amount of weight. Our journey as weight loss patients just isn't complete, until the skin is gone. Thank you Dr. LoMonaco, for completing my weight loss journey, and allowing the "real me" to shine through.
