We love our recent patient Jaime Moehlenkamp's story! Read on to find out how tummy tuck and liposuction surgery helped her complete some big changes in her life.
Jaime was kind enough to share her story with us after her recent surgery. She described how she had gone through a difficult divorce and became a single mom to two small boys. She had trouble controlling her weight for years and she began to struggle even more with the emotional and physical stress of raising her kids and the end of her marriage:
"Poor habits, overindulging, and stress all contributed to the body battle I faced, and I honestly didn’t have much motivation to do anything about it.
Finally a few years ago, I figured out who I was and what I wanted, and being overweight and unhealthy was certainly not who I was or what I wanted. I started on a life-changing journey of health and fitness in 2015 and lost almost 40 pounds. However, no amount of cardio or squats or weight lifting or sucking in my gut was going to erase the belly bulge around my midsection, and I knew it.
I began to research options for cosmetic procedures, and scheduled a consult with Dr. Horowitz in early 2017 after speaking with a friend who had just had her procedure done. Michele and the rest of the team were wonderful to work with from the beginning and explained everything in detail. I felt comfortable and confident with Dr. Horowitz and appreciated his friendly and professional demeanor. Dr. Horowitz even conducted a second consult meeting prior to my procedure so that my boyfriend could meet him and get his questions answered too. I knew that the time was right for me to be the best me I could be, both inside and out.
I could not be happier with the results or with Dr. Horowitz and his staff. More importantly, I couldn’t be happier with my decision to make this happen. I am in the prime of my life right now in every way, including my body. I’m using this opportunity to make fitness and health a priority for the rest of my life, and look and feel great for many, many years to come! "
We are so happy for Jaime and her family!
