Cheryl Co's Story
“My name is Cheryl I am 48 years old and I am a registered nurse. I have been happily married to a wonderful man, Alva, for many years. I have three grown children and three beautiful grand-kids. I grew up as the “fat kid” in school and was morbidly obese for my entire adult life. In October 2007, I found myself at almost 500 pounds and felt hopeless. In May 2008, I underwent gastric bypass surgery and shed 282 pounds. I still didn’t feel complete with all the hanging skin. I started the journey of seeking plastic surgeons to find out what I needed to do and what procedures needed to be done with all the hanging skin. I have seen eight different plastic surgeons from Seattle Washington to Tijuana Mexico. I picked the best one for me and that was Dr. Katzen in Beverly Hills California. He was the right fit for me in a few ways. He is highly skilled, knowledgeable, and specializes in massive weight loss patients. Dr. Katzen spent time with me explaining everything and ensured I had all my questions answered. He is very detailed and concise and can see what the results truly will be in the finished product. Dr. Katzen is also very compassionate, kind and sees us as a friend and not just a number.I had a lower body lift and lipo to both legs on October 26th, 2010. Dr. Katzen removed 29 pounds of skin with my lower body lift and 12 pounds in my legs via liposuction. I have gone down two whole pants sizes and heading for the next. Dr. Katzen has helped me look like a normal person and I am so thankful. I still have two more surgeries with him. My next surgery will be a breast lift with implants and an arm lift and the last surgery will be a thigh lift. I trust Dr. Katzen with my life and want to say thank you so much Dr. Katzen I truly appreciate what you have done to change my life.
I love life and enjoy every day of it. I love the journey I am on and I am so excited about that life has in store and want to share it with others. Please take the next step to choose L.I.F.E. –Losing It For Ever!! Don’t let the weight keep you down choose “LIFE”.
