I went into this procedure wanting a better quality of life. I was working hard to get back to my athletic lifestyle; however, my abdominal muscles were so weak and I had so much skin that hung that it made not only working out difficult but also every day regular chores. I had to wear special under garments to hold my skin up and in, I also sustain a large abdominal injury because of how weak my muscles were. I was on the right path to a healthful lifestyle but needed Dr. Leedy to get me the rest of the way.
I am now 3 months post surgery and my life has changed so much! Now that Dr. Leedy has repaired my muscles I have been able to work hard at my workouts and have went from a size 14 to a size 6 (some of which I did after my consult, but before surgery), I ran my first 5k with my children and husband, I have ordered a bathing suit for the first time in 8 years, and allow myself to be photographed. My confidence is back, I feel like I am now the athletic woman again that used to be hidden under hanging skin and broken muscles.
To me the cosmetic aspect of this procedure is a bonus... an amazing bonus! Dr, Leedy gave me one very flat, tight, stomach, and that is pretty awesome. What Dr. Leedy gave me along with that is a better quality of life, time with my family, health, and confidence.
