I did it because I spent 27 years hating my body...

I did it because I spent 27 years hating my body and not feeling good in my clothes and I just wanted to feel normal again and feel good about buying and wearing clothes.

I had known for 27 years what I wanted. After a bad car accident and then having a child, I had very loose and ugly skin. Clothes didn't fit me right and no matter how much weight I lost, I never felt like I could tuck my shirt in or wear decent clothes. I wanted so badly just to look good in my clothes.

I did the research. And then I went to see Dr. S. The friendliness and warmth got me in for a consultation, but it was Dr. S's knowledge, confidence and frankness that made me sure I was doing the right thing for me. There were complications with my situation and he was upfront about them. He also told me what I DIDN'T need to have done - saving me money on a procedure I thought I needed but he proved I didn't.

The aftercare was amazing. I have a real problem with anesthesia usually and I let Dr. S know that. When I woke up from surgery, I had NO nausea. I was stunned by that. Dr. S and his nurse, Jim, were gentle and incredible. I knew I was in really good hands throughout.

I'm only 3 weeks beyond surgery right now but the healing has been exceptional, even with all of my personal complications. I so love the results.

When I walked into Dr. Salemy's office, I felt like Rosie O'Donnell's character on Nip/Tuck. Here were all of these beautiful girls in the office and I was dumpy and had a bunch of sloppy skin I wanted removed. Something I'd dreamed about for 27 years. I told myself, if they make me feel bad in the least, I am leaving and I'm never coming back. But it wasn't like that at all. I could not BELIEVE how wonderful everyone was to me. Not once did any of them make me feel "less than" for the way I'd let my body get. Dr. Salemy and his staff were positive, warm, kind, truly caring and supportive. And believe me, making that consultation appointment was the hardest part for me.I had known for 27 years what I wanted. After a bad car accident and then having a child, I had very loose and ugly skin. Clothes didn't fit me right and no matter how much weight I lost, I never felt like I could tuck my shirt in or look good in my clothes. So, I did the research to find a Board Certified physician from an excellent medical school who had great references. And then I went to see Dr. Salemy. The friendliness and warmth got me in for a consultation, but it was Dr. Salemy's knowledge, confidence and frankness that made me sure I was doing the right thing for me. He answered my questions thoroughly and in detail so that I was comfortable and I knew what to expect. He answered questions I didn't even know to have yet. When I wanted more done than I needed, he also told me what I DIDN'T need to have done - and explained why I didn't need it - saving me money on a procedure that wasn't necessary to get the results I wanted. The aftercare has been amazing. I have a real problem with anesthesia usually and I let Dr. Salemy know that. When I woke up from surgery, I had NO nausea. I was stunned by that. Every step of the way through recovery, I have felt supported and confident. I have felt in really good hands throughout. I'm only 3 weeks beyond surgery right now but the healing has been exceptional. I so love the results. I've been shopping for new clothes and wearing things I wouldn't have worn in the last 27 years and it feels so liberating. So good. And every time I go see Dr. Salemy, it feels like he's celebrating with me. I really, really like him and appreciate him and if you were my daughter or my best friend, I'd tell you - go to him. You will be so glad you did.
