What a Long Trip Its Been - Louisville, KY

I woke up one morning and looked at myself in the mirror and thought I bet if all this skin wasn't on my stomach I may actually see results from the gym. That day I decided its time to talk to Dr Calobrace about getting something done. After speaking with him I realized why I was so miserable was because under all this skin was my body waiting to come out. So on November 20,2012 I underwent surgery to remove all the excess skin. I came out of surgery with 4 tubes stitched inside me. I thought did I really just do this? But I was in pain at the beginning but then things began to take shape thus letting me see how great the surgery had made me look and feel. I had to have a scar revision in April 2013 but that was a cake walk. I came out looking as great as I do now. Well a few months went by and I realized that my arms didn't match the rest of me so I needed to get the skin removed from them as well. So I October 2013 I did just that. I have never felt so great in my life. Dr. Calobrace made my experience an easy going one from day one whether it be telling you a funny story or singing a song bright and early before surgery it makes your mind at ease. I am glad that I had this experience and so proud of myself. I would recommend Dr. Calobrace to anyone who wants to have plastic surgery.

Hi there, welcome and thanks so much for sharing your journey with us!

Glad everything went well for you! We'd love to see a before/after photo, if you have any you feel comfortable sharing.

Did you get this surgery because of weight loss or just general excess skin? How was your recovery, did you have to take much time off of work?
