What Our Patients Are Saying

Weight Loss Surgery Patient Stories

I am only 3 months post op and have had a total weight loss of 98 pounds, I’ve dropped 4 shirt sizes, 4 pant sizes, necklaces fit better, I don’t need a seat belt extender when I travel, and that’s just the beginning. I am no longer invisible, I have confidence I have never had before, and now I have the opportunity to share my story and hopefully be an inspiration to others. This has been the hardest, most challenging, and terrifying experience of my life. However, I can also proudly say that this is the best decision I have ever made, and I am strong and I am fearless.
