I grew up in a small town in Pennsylvania. However, I wasn’t an average child. I was the child who was very overweight at a young age, and all throughout school. I was the child picked on by some of his fellow classmates, and even some of the teachers due to his excess weight. I was the child that had to sit out of some gym classes because he couldn’t do what the other children were doing.
I’ve always had a weight problem. Food was a drug that I would keep coming back to. It made me feel better about myself. As time went on, I grew up into my teenage years, and I developed anxiety disorder. The anxiety disorder held me in constant fear of death. The constant fear of death led me to depression. To cope with the anxiety and depression, I ate food. A lot of food. This led me down a road that made me gain a lot of excess weight.
At the age of 16, I weighed in at 799lbs. I needed a life change or else I would die. The way I was living my life wasn’t working, and it was leading me to an early death. With a new found faith, and a different perspective on life – I began to pray hard, eat healthier, and move as much as I could. I began seeing my weight fall off, but unfortunately I had loose skin that just wouldn’t come off no matter what I tried. I was an individual who had worked hard to get his body into shape, but all that hard work wasn’t recognized due to the loose skin that covered my success.
In steps Dr. DiBernardo. I contacted New Jersey Plastic Surgery to inquire about what they could do for me. To my surprise, they could assist me on achieving the body that I desired! The staff were very professional, and quick to get me an appointment. I was able to have three different surgeries to remove excess skin, and to tone my problem areas up.
My life is better post-surgery in so many ways! No longer do I have to feel out of place with my body. No longer do I have to wonder what my body looks like under all of that loose skin. No longer do I have to regret shopping for clothes. I am able to live a normal life now! I live a life of confidence, and happiness! I don’t believe happiness comes from image. But I do believe that if you feel confident about yourself – you’ll be a happier person.
I recommend New Jersey Plastic Surgery to anyone looking for a professional team that can meet your desired results. They did it for me, and many others. I am confident they can assist you as well! Thank you, team!
“I was very insecure about my neck until I discovered Elevate
and got the procedure done. In one day post-op I feel onfident and beautiful. The procedure was quick and easy and NOT painful at all! Dr. D was very comforting and very professional. I would highly recommend him and the procedure.” - Oneida
My experience at New Jersey Plastic Surgery was very amazing. From the day of consultation, until now (5 months after surgery), I have nothing but great things to say about the staff, the procedure, and my experience overall. Before my surgery I was very insecure about my breasts, and during my consultation process, everyone was very welcoming and understanding of everything I wanted in terms of how big I wanted to go (I wanted a very natural look) and how I wanted to look. Surgery day, everything went smoothly and the post op process was easier than I had imagined it would be. I am so happy with my results and my self esteem has definitely boosted. I get many compliments on my breast’s and how natural they look. Thanks to the staff & Dr. DiBernardo for making my experience an outstanding one and for making me truly happy with the outcome. - Jadil
