Cathy Casey, a patient of both Bariatric Specialists of North Carolina and CARE Plastic Surgery.
“At 55 years old, I have never felt better about myself in my entire life. I am just under 2 years post roux en y gastric bypass surgery and lost 183lbs. In October 2013, I had made the decision that I deserved to feel the size I had become. Armed with skin that bore a lifetime of turmoil and told a story of why I felt so inferior to other women, I went on a journey to find the perfect plastic surgeon who could give me the body I had worked so hard for. Dr. Coan was not my first consultation but he definitely was my last. I found the talent I had hoped was possible and the kindness and support in Dr. Coan. I began my journey with 8 hours of lower body lift and breast lift November 2013. My surgery was extensive but my recovery was amazing. Being a bariatric patient, my nutritional status I did not believe would support such a fast recovery. My beautiful body was well in progress, but I needed a bit more and went into breast implants, to fill in the very small but beautifully perky breasts Dr. Coan created, and brachioplasty to alleviate my ‘bat-winged’ arms. Again, a fast recovery, amazing results! I now feel just 3 months later, much like a beautiful, sexy 30 year old woman that has the world in her hands. I am more than happy with myself, and have a level of confidence in every aspect of my life I never felt before. I refer to Dr. Coan as my own personal magician, with his amazing talent and skill and ability to transform my body into what it should be. But keep in mind without the tools Dr. Coan gave to me I would never be where I am today. I have the utmost respect and gratitude to him for what he has taken part of, which exceeded my expectations 100 fold. The entire staff inspires you as a patient with their sunny attitudes and encouragement, always positive. Trust in CARE and you will be more than pleased, and be an advocate forever.”
