I'm 5'3 and was over 125kg by my early 20s. I'd been obese since my earliest childhood memory and stayed that way until 2010. Something finally clicked and I lost 60kg through fitness and nutrition, but I was left with a large pouch of loose skin on my tummy, flabby thighs, as well as a fatty mons pubis. I ignored it at first, but it started to get me down because I could never fully escape my years of obesity. It began to weigh me down both physically and mentally... Once I finished uni and got a job, I finally made the decision to go for a tummy tuck and lipo. There were three plastic surgeons in my area who could do the job, so I met with the first one who came highly recommended, Dr Richard Rahdon.

From the moment I met him, I felt completely at ease. He was a true gentleman, his nurse was so lovely and gentle and his staff were welcoming. I felt totally comfortable with him as he explained the procedure in depth and answered all of my questions. I instantly trusted him. He appreciated my effort to lose the weight and gave me realistic options for fixing my tummy pouch and other areas. I asked him about a thigh lift and he didn't think it'd be worth it. I agreed because they weren't too bad. He suggested lipo which would get rid of some bulky inner thigh mass.

I had no doubts in my mind - this man was going to be the surgeon I wanted to operate on me. I didn't even want to meet the other surgeons in my area. After this consult, I booked myself in for a December operation. I could hardly wait!

On the day at 7am, I checked into St John of God private hospital, received my ID tags, then moved into the anaesthetic room. My wonderful surgeon met me in there and I wasn't nervous at all. He drew the markings on me and explained that he'd be making it look flat, proportionate and slimmer! I couldn't stop smiling. Dr Rahdon is so gentle and reassuring. I laid on the bed pre-op feeling completely relaxed. The anaethetist Dr Andrew Patrick was also very informative and kind, one minute we were talking about history and then next moment I woke up at 2.20pm! I was in my compression garment in a private room, very comfortable and assisted by attentive nurses. Dr Rahdon tightened everywhere. I couldn't believe my eyes! Every time I look down, I cry. 

He removed 1.6kg of skin and fat and sculpted it all beautifully. I spent 4 nights in hospital and Dr Rahdon checked on me at least 2-3 times a day. I have never received such genuine and dedicated care from a doctor before. He is truly an outstanding individual that goes above and beyond his duties to ensure that I was happy and healthy. I cannot recommend him highly enough!

Thank you so much - I am so happy with my transformation but I never truly appreciated it because of the loose skin and fat. Now I feel like I can be proud of myself... I can actually see the effects of my hard work. It still blows me away.

Thank you @mrso and @prue! :):)
