Let me start this review by stating that I had a very positive self-image (some people would say “annoyingly over-positive”- and, in my humble opinion, those people would be wrong) before my procedure. I am very active and take excellent care of myself, however, there are some things, especially with age (I’m in my early 40s), that require maintenance and/or preventative measures. It was not without a great deal of research (Mostly medical journals, and scientific studies- I wanted a very objective and logical viewpoint) that I entertained the idea of having my procedure done. In my selection of Dr. Zelt, I read all of his reviews with a critical eye. I appreciated his honest and professional approach and respected his expertise and his impressive credentials. I placed my trust into Dr. Zelt and was never once fearful of the procedure or the recovery (Procedure was his responsibility, recovery was mine). I am irrationally terrified of needles, and so I don’t think I made a good impression on the anesthesiologist- other than that little hiccup, everything went smoothly. I found that Natalie was always available for phone calls and questions and was a tremendous help. Knowing that she was there, set my mind at ease. I had thoroughly prepared myself and knew what to expect in the recovery period (both physically and mentally), and so when something arose that I was not anticipating, Dr. Zelt was able to see me (even though it was really nothing to worry about). I would not hesitate, if I needed/wanted, or was even considering, another procedure, to consult him again. I am a million times happier than I was before the procedure- words cannot describe it. I love having to dress my new figure in clothes that compliment it. I’ve been told I look younger, happier, sexier, more alive, one colleague even said that I walk different and my personal trainer, a lady who has worked with me and seen my body transform, prior to the procedure, was amazed with the outcome- and who am I to disagree with these lucky, lucky people that see me everyday?? While the physical difference is beautiful and positive, the change to my personality is amazingly wonderful. Its renewed me. I feel like I’m reborn and it’s all because of Dr. Zelt and his skilled hands. He has given me such a great gift; there is absolutely no way for me to truly articulate my thanks to for all that he’s done for me. If you are considering a procedure with Dr. Zelt, I highly recommend it.
