Hello, I am a 42 year old mother of four and my...
With that being said. After much research and plenty of face to face consults with surgeons, I opted for both a tummy tuck and a breast lift with implants. I had exercised for years thinking that if I worked out enough, my overlapping belly would somehow go away. Well, it didn't. Even at my thinnest (which was a size 5/150lbs) it was STILL there. You see, at my heaviest I weighed in at 260, my breasts yoyoed between a 40dd and 36d. I had four C-sections and breast fed every single one of my children.
I chose Dr Mark A Schusterman because from the moment I walked through the office door, I felt "SAFE!" The staff was warm, pleasant and very eager. I had been to three other offices and although some held a very high and prestigious reputation, they lacked people skills. I remember feeling at one point that, although I was standing in front of the doctor, he didn't see me. Dr Schusterman and his entire staff see "you" as soon as you walk through his doors. The initial consult was difficult because he was so thorough and honest but, by the time I walked out of the office , I knew he would be my doctor.
I cannot stress how much this surgery has changed my life. I don't believe my husband had ever seen me completely exposed. I am no longer ashamed to have my belly rubbed and I actually go to bed without a bra now. I have to say, the recovery itself is rather difficult but, if you follow your doctor's instructions, you will have amazing results.
I am so grateful for what Dr Schusterman has done for not only myself but my husband as well. This surgery has improved my self esteem and allowed my husband and I to become more than what we were. Now when my husband tells me I'm sexy, or beautiful...I tend to believe him.
I'm also thankful to Dr Schusterman's entire staff. I'm thankful for answering every question, taking every phone call, coming to my room with a bouquet of flowers and a get well card after my surgery. You ALL have gone above and beyond.
I can't imagine there is a finer doctor that I could have selected. So blessed to have found him.
