I have always detested my body shape, I knew I wasn't big, it was more my shape that just stayed the same no matter how much exercise I did or how healthy I ate. I dreaded going on holidays to hot climates as I couldn't wear my usual carefully planned clothes which managed to cover in the right places. I was so ashamed of my body that I wouldn't even let my husband see me properly. My problem was that I had extremely skinny calves but I held all the weight on my thighs and hips. If I ever gained any weight it would only go on this particular area and the rest of me stayed really slim and I was totally out of proportion. I was fed up of my being able to wear skirts, shorts, leggings, skinny jeans etc. basically any thing that show my legs in any way shape or form, I got the the point where I was so unhappy I just had to try and do something about it. I researched liposuction and calf implants to try and even out the my proportions. I came across a slightly different type of lipo called body jet, which had less swelling and recovery time, which was ideal for me being self employed ans not wanting to be off work for long. Through researching this treatment I across Gary Ross. I nervously booked in for a consultation and have never looked back since! Mr Ross listen to my issues and was very understanding. He suggested a combination of body jet liposuction (from my hips and thighs) followed by fat transfer to my calves. This sounded the perfect solution so I decided to go ahead!
I am extremely happy with my new body shape, even more so after comparing my before and after pictures. I was dreading seeing the before pictures as I hated my body so much! But after seeing the pictures side by side has made me feel even more thrilled! I guess you kind of get used to seeing yourself everyday so although I already felt much more confident and started wearing skinny jeans, I didn't realise quite how amazing the results actually are! I had hardly any swelling or pain following my surgery, only mild discomfort during the first week.
It has honestly been worth every penny and I can highly recommend Mr Gary Ross.
