I was increasing walking and training for a 1/2 marathon in Seattle, my first marathon ever, The Inaugural Seattle Rock and Roll Marathon. I had my 5 children raised and thought it was a good time to have the extra skin on my abdomen removed and to have the breasts I had nursed my babies with lifted.
I am, on a very tall day, 5'2", was wearing size 18 pants when I started, and now I am wearing size 2 to 3, small sweaters, and size 6 to 8 dresses. I look fabulous. I weigh about 127lbs from 210lbs at my heaviest. I think I weighed 180 when I met Dr. S and before she did anything, she told me it would be helpful to my success to lose another 20-40 lbs. I did!
Now I am a runner and very active. With what Dr. S did, I can sculpt my body with exercise and just add to the amazing gift that she gave me. I have not had one regret. I have had a HUGE change in wardrobe, attitude, and drive to be everything I can be inside and out. I might add here, I am not fanatical about my health, but I have gained a lot of benefits from tweaking a few things here and there and moderation in things.
I appreciate that I was blessed to have this experience. I was a very saggy 38 D to a beautiful, natural feeling, perky, 36 DD. I am a 36-27-36. I feel and look great. Have I said that enough? I have been guessed 25-32 years old. Thank you Dr. S, you are very gifted, and also thanks to your incredible sweet staff. Deborah
Whoops my measurements are 40-27-36. Loving life....

My Doctor: Lisa L. Sowder, MD
Where do I begin??? Dr. S from the first phone call with her staff to meeting her and now on my own with absolutely perfect and beautiful results, what could be better! Professionally, I had interviewed Dr.s since I was about 37 yrs old. I actively started again at 55. I almost hesitated with Dr. S, because I kept reading conversative conservative and I worried what that might mean. I didn't want to look like something freaky either. First and foremost I wanted what I had before children. I just wanted it tucked and lifted and filled, if needed. Let me tell you, Dr. S is sensitive and very skilled. I tried different ways of asking her different questions to see if she would be able to give me what I wanted. She wouldn't do what she knew wouldn't work. But she found a way to give me more than I ever expected and beyond. I look amazing. 57 years old and in many ways I feel more beautiful than I ever did at 18 or 21. This is a Dr. I trust. She is personable and professional. She has walked me through this amazing experience and it has been well worth whatever my part was in it, physically, emotionally, and financially. I love to be active and she will tell you, that is important to our success. Get going and get it done, whatever your dream....
