Weightloss:135 pounds

Because of my excess weight I could not enjoy life the way normal people do. I couldn’t play sports, I felt uncomfortable on an airplane or at the movies in my seat, and even a short walk would leave me out of breath. After years of living like this, it began affecting my health. My cholesterol and heart pressure were so high that loosing weight suddenly became a top priority in my life.

I looked into several procedures that would help me attain my goal and I decided to go with gastric by-pass surgery. This helped me lose 135lbs pounds. The weight was gone but I had a huge amount of excess skin. Yes, I was skinnier, but no clothes fit right. That is when a friend that had gone through the same thing recommended Dr. Quiroz to help me reshape my body.

After having a Lower Body Lift and Brazilian Butt Lift, I was transformed into a complete new person.People do not recognize me in the street. They can’t believe it, but more importantly, I can’t believe how good I feel.

I will always be grateful to Dr. Quiroz, he is my “Magic Man.” I never thought a stomach could get be so flat; never thought mine would. I can tie my shoes, walk comfortably and do all kinds of things I had given up on. I never thought I would ever be able to wear a bathing suit and look good in it. My quality of life has been enhanced in every way: my health, my comfort, my self-esteem, everything.

Losing the battle of obesity is an amazing accomplishment that should leave you feeling absolutely great about your body. Besides the obvious appearance changes, restoring your body to a healthy weight comes with many health benefits that can dramatically change your life.

Pamela: age 53
Prodecure: Breast lift, Lower body lift, Full Face lift, Tummy tuck(and sides in), and Liposuction and Tightening with lift.
Weightloss: 198 pounds

I decided to loose weight because I came to a point where I realized I would be in a wheel chair, or dead, if I didn’t do something.

I was on 7 different medications and I was depressed. I couldn’t, have a regular day with my husband, play with my grandchildren, or do anything that required any kind of strength. All I could do is sitting all day in my old recliner. I decided to have weight loss surgery.

I managed to lose 198 lbs, which made me very proud, but the downside was that the sudden weight-loss left a lot of hanging skin on my face and my stomach. My arms had 8 inches of skin hanging, my stomach felt like a big apron. The hanging skin on my face made me look years older. Plastic Surgery was the only solution for me.

I visited COSMED after doing some research on the internet alongside a friend and co-worker. We drove down to have a first consultation and were very impressed with Dr. Quiroz and Doctor Fuentes. The whole staff at COSMED were wonderful and helpful. Both my friend and I, got work done with excellent results. We refer a lot of people in our friends (support groups) to COSMED.
I will always be grateful to Dr. Quiroz and Dr. Fuentes. After I had all my surgeries, I felt like I got my life back, and I found a new confidence in myself. I look 15 to 20 years younger now and many people don’t recognize me when I walk by. Now I enjoy my life with my husband (who is very proud of me) and my grandchildren. We will be retiring in a few years , and have a lot to look forward to.

Whether you have lost the weight on your own, are interested in gastric bypass surgery or liposuction, or just need a “lift” in certain areas, Cosmed is your trusted source for looking and feeling great.

Dana: age 36
Prodecure: Lower Body Lift, Breast Lift with Implants
Weightloss: 190 pounds

When I was overweight, I only watched like others enjoyed themselves and couldn’t participate in any physical activity. Beside that, being diagnosed with diabetes at the age of 30 and suffering from very high blood pressure pushed me to loose the weight. I managed to loose up to 100 lbs alone but gained them back, I knew I could do it, but needed help. That’s when I decided to have Gastric By-pass surgery and I lost 198lbs.

Health-wise I felt much, much better after the surgery but could not say the same for my self-image. I had a tremendous excess of skin all over my body following the weight-loss, and was very conscious of it.

I started to research on the internet about weight loss surgery and found COSMED and Dr. Quiroz. A friend, and I went to our first consultation, and I was so impressed with COSMED. As a clinic, the facilities were impeccable, and the staff very helpful and professional, but most importantly: Dr. Quiroz willingness to answer any questions and his kind treatment convinced me to have the surgery the next week.

The surgeries I had were a little painful and the extended recoveries were uncomfortable, but when I look at myself today, I feel I would do it all over again.
Dr. Quiroz helped me become a participant in life, instead of an observer. I can rollerblade with my kids, dance, and most of all, to enjoy great health without any medication or worry. I recommend this to anyone who is going through something similar to what I went through that wants to transform their life.

Carolyn: age 62
Prodecure: Full Face lift, Neck lift, Body lift, Buttocks lift, and Liposuction
Weightloss: 103 pounds

For years I struggled with my weight, but when I was diagnosed with diabetes, loosing weight became a must in my life. After talking to various doctors I decided to have Lap-Band Surgery, and lost 103 lbs.

I was very happy that the weight was gone, but I didn’t imagine the excess skin all over my body would be hanging. I needed plastic surgery, and while I was doing the research, someone recommended COSMED. Dr. Quiroz, apart from being an excellent surgeon, was very kind and understanding.

I have had several procedures now: first the face lift, and neck lift, which made me look years younger. Then the complete Body lift: (butt lift, liposuction and arm lift). After all the work I had done, people couldn’t even recognize me. My daughter lives in another state, and she was amazed and happy to see the wonderful transformation I had. I told her about how I’d found a great doctor, and she said that it looked more like I found the fountain of youth. She said it looked more like I had lost years, not pounds.
Going shopping is a completely different experience now. I’m so happy trying on regular clothes that now my problem is picking a color or style. I feel good about myself now. I am forever grateful to Dr. Quiroz and COSMED for the professional work, support, and excellent service. I recommend them to anyone who wants to transform their body and their lives.
