DR. ZELKO: So Tana, good afternoon. How are you today?
TANA: I’m great. Thank you.
DR. ZELKO: That’s good. So you’re here today to discuss a little bit about Tickle Lipo and why had the procedure done. So what were your reasons for having liposuction in the first place?
TANA: Hope. I wanted my body to resemble my lifestyle. And I dieted, it was very regimented. And I worked out every day and actually spent too much time working out and exercising and my body did not reflect that. And I am very thankful because it changed my life.
DR. ZELKO: That’s good. So how do you feel since having the — the quality of the procedure, do you feel like you got what you were looking for?
TANA: Absolutely, yeah. And more than that, I can wear normal clothes now. When the lady, when she took my measurements for the garment, she said I had 2 extra. My arms were the size of a 2 extra-large, my mid-section was a medium, and the rest of my body was about a large – extra-large. And I always have a difficult time fitting into normal clothes like everybody else especially with my arms and now I can wear normal clothes. Now I can wear things that — I don’t have pillow pockets in the back of my arms anymore.
DR. ZELKO: Is it easier to shop?
TANA: Way easier to shop. It’s actually fun to shop now, I can actually wear nice clothes now.
DR. ZELKO: Very good. So you’re spending more of your husband’s money? [laughs]
TANA: A little bit, yeah.
DR. ZELKO: So what did the results mean to you?
TANA: They meant everything because, like I said, I took very good care of my body and it didn’t reflect that. I understand that most people, when they look at you, they have a certain judgment and that was hard on me because I did take care of myself so well that I think sometimes it’s hard to listen to that and hear that being put down a lot. But it just — now, I feel so normal now. And I never felt normal before. I felt very inadequate. It sounds very sad but I felt inadequate. But now I feel normal. I feel like everybody else. I feel like I can wear things that maybe fit my arms better. I enjoy wearing clothes now so it made a huge difference.
DR. ZELKO: Okay. I’m glad we could help for you, okay?
DR. ZELKO: Well, very good. Thank you for this little interview.
TANA: You’re welcome.
DR. ZELKO: Have a good day.
TANA: Thank you.
