My weight loss journey started January 4th, 2017. For the first time in as long as I can remember I stood on the scales. A whopping 98.7kgs was staring me in the eyes. I was distraught, but knew I had to change. I began eating healthier and exercising daily, but the weight wouldn’t budge. Something more drastic had to be done, and I underwent my first life altering experience weight loss surgery. It was a hard battle, but I wouldn’t change it for the world. I triumphed with a loss of 45kgs in just over a year. I was left with redundant skin and large severely sagging breasts. After much research I found Dr Matthew Peters from Valley Plastic Surgery. The man who changed my life for the second time. My first appointment was August 15th, 2018. As soon as I met Dr Peters, I knew he’d be my surgeon. He talked me through everything and could do exactly what I wanted. I left beaming. I couldn’t wait to get home to tell my mum, she knew I was excited by how much I talked. I made the call. Surgery booked for October 16th, 2018. From that moment I had a countdown timer on.
I couldn’t believe it was happening, and a roller coaster of emotions hit me. I have wanted a breast reduction for at least a decade. Suffering with chronic back pain for years made my life suffer and I was excited to get back on track and to be able to live. The surgery was much harder than I expected it to be, but after recovery I couldn’t be happier. I had a breast reduction with lift, a belt lipectomy and mons lift. I now feel confident after struggling with my weight for most of my life and the pain has lessened, and hopefully with disappear. I can lead a happy and healthy life. My journey hasn’t been easy but for once, I am looking forward to living my best life and seeing what the future holds for me.
I couldn’t recommend anyone higher than Dr Matthew Petters. He made all of my dreams come true.
