Samantha S: Lap Band Surgery
I had been overweight for way too many years. It started off as just a few pounds here and there, but by age 32, I was 273 pounds worried that before too long I would be 300 pounds! I had high blood pressure, confidence issues, and could not sleep well. It didn’t help that I ate whatever I wanted and did not exercise. I knew I needed to take control, but I honestly wasn’t sure I could do it alone or have the willpower to do it. A friend of mine had seen Dr. Bagnato and had the LapBand surgery, her progress, success and impact it made on her life made me decide to give them a call. I wanted to feel and experience all the new happiness she was. They were all so helpful and made my transition to a new life a dream come true. I now find healthy eating so much more enjoyable. I can’t imagine I’d ever be at 178 pounds if it weren’t for the surgery. I will forever be grateful for taking this journey and learning to love myself and life again! The new found confidence, energy, and the impact it has made on my life is amazing. Thank you so much to Dr. Bagnato and staff for helping me become the best version of myself.
