I would like to sing the praises of Dr. Robert Sleightholm of the Brampton Cosmetic Surgery Center and Medical Spa. On Feb. 1, 2012, Dr. Sleightholm performed a tummy tuck and liposuction on me.

What you need to know is that I am 66 years old and have worked to keep a slim figure. However, I had a lot of stretch marks and very loose skin on my stomach. All of this was the result of having my first child at the age of 19. After having children, my stomach no longer looked the way it did before pregnancy.

A lot of people think that cosmetic surgery is unnecessary. What I know is that at the young age of 19, my stomach was awful to look at. Never again would I feel comfortable showing my stomach to my husband or looking at myself in the mirror.

Finally, after 47 years, I can now look at my stomach and feel wonderful. I even went out and bought myself a two-piece swimsuit.

Thank you Dr. Sleightholm for giving me back the body I once had. *
