My story is like many others on this forum.
I am 27 years old and have had two beautiful children, ages 6 and 3. I was about 115- 120 before my pregnancies. I gained a whopping 75 big ones with my first and about 40 with my second. In between and after my pregnancies my weight fluctuated between 140 and 150. I never had been on a regular healthy exercise regimen before I had children and really just didn't know how to do it. It seemed so easy for others to lose weight and just thought thats how it would be fore me. I seemed "stuck" at the weight. I was finally sick of it after 6 years ...sick of feeling and looking horrible; I just wasn't comfortable. No matter what anyone told me..my husband friends and family thought I looked "fine". It didn't matter what they thought and it still doesn't. It was my body and I was pretty insecure about it. My body and mind took a toll...and I decided to do something about it.
In June of 2011 I was a solid 145. I started being very conscious about not only the calories but the kinds of foods I was eating. I started working out religiously 4 to 6 days a week for at "least" a half and hour to 2 hours a day. I lost 15 pounds in 3 months. I made my goal weight of 130. I felt great inside...I had more energy, my back didn't hurt as much and my skin was clearer. My outside didn't match how I felt on the inside. Although I was at my ideal weight I had saggy, loose skin on my belly that wasn't going anywhere. And my breasts were also very "deflated".
I knew before I lost the weight that I was going to get surgery. I had a consultation with the first one in Oct. 2010, and the second in Apr 2011. I was pretty much going to go with the second one until I was on this website and another and read the great reviews of my chosen doctor. I had scheduled my 3rd and final consultation in July and I knew Dr. S was the one for me. If I was going to pay the money I wanted to be sure I picked the very best. I believe I did.
On October 10, 2011, I had a breast lift with 300 cc cohesive gel silicone implants (34C maybe small D in some bras) , a tummy tuck and labiaplasty. The money spent does not compare to how great I feel about myself now. I just wanted to feel comfortable in my own skin and have succeeded.
Feeling beautiful, healthy and rejuvenated inside and out is absolutely priceless.

Dr. Salemy has a great balance of professionalism and bedside manner. My body is very proportioned and my tummy is VERY flat. He didn't try to sell me any procedures that he felt I didn't need. I was actually advised by another doctor to have lipo with my tummy tuck and he said I didn't need it. I felt that he had great recommendations and he definitely proved himself with the results. He is a true artist.
