Better Than a Fairy Godmother! - Lexington, KY
Dr. Schantz performed a breast lift with implants and a tummy tuck. In less than three hours, he transformed my body better than any fairy godmother could ever begin to imagine. I’ve spent hundreds of hours reading reviews and looking at before and after photos. I was completely obsessed with getting as close to “perfect” as my worn-out, sagging, and aging body could get.
On the morning of my procedure, I handed Dr. Schantz a stack of pictures showing every single slope, angle, and ratio that I wanted in my new breasts, along with pictures of the ones I didn’t like. He patiently looked through them, and softly said that he understood what I wanted. This would have been horribly embarrassing with anybody else on earth, but his gentle spirit and compassionate nature made it okay. His nurse, Miranda, was an angel and talked me through every little step of the way. She was so kind and patient that I knew she was the answer to another one of my prayers.
When my bandages came off, I couldn’t believe my eyes. I was completely astounded. Dr. Schantz actually gave me what I had fantasized of having for the past thirty-five years. It doesn’t even seem possible for somebody 53 years old to have the chest and belly that he gave me. He trussed my stomach muscles up like a Sunday roast and took off at least four inches of loose belly skin. Then, he topped it all off with the exact slopes, angles, and ratios of my dreams.
For the past ten years, I’ve been horribly ashamed of my aging body. When I looked in the mirror, all I saw from the bottom of my underwear to my neck was sagging, wrinkled, and either bony or flaccid. No matter how much I exercised, it just kept getting worse. I lost more fat from my breast and belly which resulted in more sagging skin. I guess that’s what happens as we age, but I wasn’t able to accept it gracefully.
When I got out of the shower, I would try not to look in the mirror because all I saw was hideously ugly. My husband hadn’t seen my stomach or breasts in at least ten years. When he would accidentally walk in while I was changing clothes, I would cringe and turn away quickly in horror. I knew this upset him, but I couldn’t bear the thought that he would be repulsed by the sight of me.
Thanks to Dr. Schantz, those days are over! My self-confidence has been restored, and I’m prancing all over the house with a great big smile and a twinkle in my eyes.
