I came for my consultation for TT and breast lift and was told that I would not be able to achieve great results if I don't lose weight. Ouch, but I knew that too. I was 204 lbs and size 14 back then. But I appreciated his honesty. Truth can hurt, but also can be a greatest motivator. That's how I learned about Orbera weight loss procedure, and it appealed to me, being non-invasive and non-permanent. I had the procedure done the following month. (Orbera is a balloon, inserted into your stomach for 6 months, which prevents you from being hungry, while you learn to make a better lifestyle choices) The entire 6 months I was closely observed by Dr. DeLange and his wonderful team, with all the needed support and encouragement. Over those 6 months I came to the office multiple times for check-ups and it was almost like coming home. Everyone is super nice and made me feel important. Who doesn't like that feeling, right?
6 months flew by and with everyone's support and step by step guidance I have lost 50 lbs., adopted new healthy habits and generally felt as a happier person all around. On the day of Orbera balloon removal, I had my TT (with muscle tissue repair after 2 kids), breast lift with an implant replacement, lipo and lip repair. That alone took another 4 lbs. off. Yeeeyyy!!! Dr. DeLange said a few times that he will make me look like a ‘high-school girl’ but I always thought that it was a figure of speech……. IT WASN’T! On 2nd day post-op check-up when my wrappings were taken off, I couldn’t believe my eyes. I looked a million times better than I thought was possible. Speaking of self-confidence shooting up through the roof!!! Since the surgery I’ve lost another 10 lbs. retaining newly built habits, and now I am easily fitting in size 2/small clothing. I feel like a new person and walking through the door of Dr. DeLange’s office 7 months ago was the best thing I did. Highly recommend Estetica and its entire team as caring, knowledgeable, very friendly, attentive, and just beautiful.
