My story is simple. I had two beautiful children, 9 lb 11 oz and 10 lb 5 oz. During their pregnancies I gained a huge amount of weight (and not just the baby) then spent the next 2 1/2 years working my ass off to achieve my healthy weight again. I was so proud of my accomplishments of becoming healthy but still found myself falling shy of happy. I had a significant amount of excess skin on my abdomen that I knew no matter how hard I worked, would never go away. I was uncomfortable both physically and psychologically due to the excess skin and I even found myself tucking it into my pants before I sat down so it wouldn’t get pinched – or stick out making me look bigger than I was. So I decided to look into my options.
I had spoken to many offices and many doctors regarding abdominal plastic surgery. I was made to feel vain and artificial by most of the doctors. They treated me like I was a number with a large dollar sign attached. I had almost given up when I called Dr. Golger’s office. His receptionist Toni made me feel like a person. Like I was important and that I was worth it. I made an appointment to meet with Dr. Golger and knew within the first three minutes that he would be the one to help me complete my journey. I felt as though he cared more about helping me to achieve my goals than he did about creating perfection just because he could. He worked with me to understand what I wanted from the surgery, not telling me what he could do for me. I felt safe, and in control. This was my decision, not some plastic surgeon telling what else needed to be fixed.
Dr. Golger is an extraordinary surgeon who cares about his patients. I booked my surgery and loved the anticipation leading up to the big day. Dr. Golger did a fabulous job, removing around 1 1/2 lb. of skin, creating a nearly perfect scar and following up even on his own personal time to ensure that I was comfortable and healing well. I had no pain and was up and around within just a few short hours of my surgery. If I was given the opportunity to change only one thing, I would call Dr. Golger’s office first. What a fabulous experience.
