“It was the best decision I ever made…Dr. Rosenberg was very positive, and he supported me throughout,” says Tabitha S. about her experience with Dr. Rosenberg, a board-certified plastic surgeon at Southeastern Plastic Surgery, P.A. in Tallahassee, FL.
The 5 foot 1 inch, 32-year-old, had lost nearly 100 pounds using diet and exercise over a four-year journey. Proud of what she had accomplished, but struggling with all the excess skin left behind by the dramatic weight loss, she started a search for the perfect plastic surgeon.
“I had met with another practice in town but just didn’t have that connection,” she said. “With Dr. Rosenberg, it was immediate. I knew he was right. I feel I was meant to meet him because he made me feel so comfortable.”
“He has the best bed-side manner and made me feel at ease. He was obviously passionate about his work and excited for me,” she added.
Tabitha says she’s a researcher by nature. She had done her homework on Dr. Rosenberg by reviewing his credentials on Healthgrades and other sites, and she also searched for additional information on what to expect with a tummy tuck.
Tabitha underwent an extended tummy tuck to remove excess skin from the tummy, back and hips in the Surgery Center at Southeastern Plastic Surgery, P.A.. She was prepared for the difficult recovery and though she is happy she doesn’t have to do it again, definitely would for the same result.
Following surgery, she didn’t hesitate to call Dr. Rosenberg and the practice with questions. She said they always made her feel cared about. “I needed them to hold my hand, and they were there for me.”
She said within two to three weeks she was feeling pretty good. “I agonized for a long time beforehand over doing this and whether it was the right decision. Now I am so happy I did …it has positively affected so much in my life and was so worth it.”
