Patient Testimonial – Toniann from Belleville, NY

Forums Are Now LIVE On Our Website!

“My life before surgery was very unhappy and depressing. Although I never appeared unhappy to people, because I was the jolly fat girl that made people laugh, deep down I was very sad and miserable. My life after surgery is incredible, It is like the outer layer fell off and I emerged. I can’t even believe it sometimes when I look at myself in the mirrow! I have to look again because I can’t believe what im seeing. Ive never been happier! My total weight lost is 81lbs and I have never felt happier or healthier in my entire life! I also could not have asked for a more kind and considerate staff. Everyone from the front desk girl to the surgeon was amazing!”

Thomas' success story

I went in for surgery. An hour later, I came out a new man.

Everybody treated me like a king. The day of surgery, I was excited. The hospital couldn’t be any nicer. I went in for surgery. An hour later, I came out a new man. My recovery was awesome. I was out of bed that day. My wife and kids were my motivation on getting this surgery. They are my whole life. I’m happy I’m going to be around for them.
