After losing 160 pounds, I had difficulty seeing the results of my
accomplishment because of excess skin. While I was proud of my success and
living a much healthier lifestyle, I felt uncomfortable in my new body, as it
was a constant reminder of who I was before I had lost the weight. It was
difficult to move forward with my new life and see what other opportunities were
available to me as a thinner, healthier person.
When I went to see Dr. Myckatyn, both he and his staff were incredibly warm
and supportive. During the initial consultation, Dr. Myckatyn asked where I
thought my problem areas were. Based on the feedback I gave him, he offered
suggestions, which were great! Not once did he suggest a procedure on an area I
did not bring up first. He gave me options in regards to the types of procedures
and the potential results, and also showed me several examples of other patients
who had the same procedures I was considering, which gave me a realistic
expectation of the results.
After meeting with Dr. Myckatyn and receiving the quote for my procedures, I
decided to ask him to be my physician. I had my initial consultation in December
2007, and my procedure was done in May 2008. I am a student and asked to have
the procedures done during the summer to better accommodate my schedule. The
scheduling office was more than happy to oblige.
I could not be happier with my results! My new body is now a testament of who
I am and how far I have come. I don’t know if I can accurately express the
fondness I feel for Dr. Myckatyn. What he has done for me is so much more than
making me “look” better. I feel I now have the permission to live the life I was
intended to live. I have the confidence and motivation to challenge myself in
ways I never thought possible. I am forever grateful for what he and his staff
have done for me, and I will never forget them. My hope is that on days when
they are struggling and frustrated, they think of patients like me whose lives
they have impacted, and it helps make it all worthwhile.
I have already recommended Dr. Myckatyn to others. While I do not feel I need
more surgical procedures at this time in my life, I do intend to have laser hair
removal done at his office very soon.
