My Dear Dr. Sigal,
If I were a poet, I would be better able to express the new-found happiness you’ve given me.
I’ve lived a very good life and have been blessed in innumerable ways, and worrying bout my appearance should not have played a part in my outlook on this life. I suppose, however, the curse of being human got to me; I was miserable in my own skin.
Shopping for clothing was no fun; I avoided invitations to so many events because I didn’t feel I’d “look right”. I have passed on cruises, trips to the pool or beach, parties and more because I was so unhappy with my appearance.
It took considerable “self-talk” to get me to face you about this body. Cheri was so certain I’d be thrilled with the outcome of anything you’d do and with her encouragement, and your confident manner, I was able to overcome the indecision.
I am so happy with my new look and the new feeling I have about myself. My wonderful husband, who loved me even when I looked like a sharpei, is thrilled with the new me; he never held me back from doing this surgery, but assured me daily that I didn’t “need” it. He totally understands now what the transformation means.
I thank you, sincerely, for your loving nature and your skill and dedication. Please let your wonderful staff know that they contributed in a great way to a life-altering experience that has meant the world to me. It is important that you know, too, how lucky you are to have people like them surrounding and supporting your talents.
I could go on, but I’ll put it simply, I love you!
God bless you and yours always,
