I've got my body back!
4 years on and could'nt be happier
A year after my breast reduction I'd lost 15kg and had loose skin on my tummy, so I had a full tummy tuck with muscle repair. Then a year after that I had lost more weight and had my back done too. Howard matched up the scars beautifully so I just have one low thin scar right around, which has now faded.
I can now dress the way I want to dress, and only now realise this is very
important to me.
I'm healthy and reasonably fit. I walk about 10km a day and love it.
It's been a real journey and a wonderful life changing experience.
I can not speak highly enough of Howard Webster and his team.

My Bodylift included two operations which were a year apart.
First a Tummy tuck and muscle repair when I was 47. I stayed 3 nights in hospital where I was well looked after, and any pain was quickly managed with painkillers. At home I remembered being pleasantly surprised at how fast I was recovering. Other than walking slow and bent over for a week or two, it was much easier than I had expected. A sneeze or cough was probably the most painful part for me.
Next I had my lower back done after more weight loss. I had 1 night in hospital and can't say I had any pain at all. Painkillers worked well! Once again other than walking slowly and a little restricted in movement, I felt really good. I was even walking on my treadmill a week later.
Three years later I'm still feeling great!
Written and Photo Update
My recovery was slower after this surgery, but I wasn't as fit leading up to it.
I've maintained my weight for 3 years now at 57-60 kilos. I'm not sure of my weight before as I never weighed myself, but I think I would have weighed approximately 80 kilos (I'm 5'7").
Knee and Thigh Liposuction
I'm 3 weeks post-op and still wearing the compression garment during the day but not at night. My swelling has gone down and the bruising has almost gone completely. I can definitely see a difference in my legs already.
The first week was a little painful mainly when I would try to stand after sitting or lying down. However, I no longer have this pain.
Once again, I felt totally safe and cared for by Howard and his team. I can't wait to get into my skinny jeans!
