Beautologie Real Stories - Pam

I first came to Beautologie when I was diagnosed with breast cancer 5 years ago and Dr. Darshan Shah helped me with my breast reconstruction. As far as Beautologie goes, they are like my family. Dr. Shah did my reconstruction and then I spent 5 years on chemo medicine and when I finally got off I had felt and looked like I aged 30 years so I came here to see Dr. Lehocky who did my blepharoplasty (eye lift) and after my eyes were done, I felt like my life was given back to me. I looked in the mirror and I thought ‘oh my gosh I'm back to where I was before my cancer’!

Cancer is an odd thing, you have to either hit it head on or you can just lay down and die and I thought, no I'm going to get reconstruction and be a whole person again, and then after I got my eyes done I realized Beautologie was different than regular hospitals and doctors. Everyone is so wonderful there! Going through the surgery experience was like going to a spa. The surgery suite is private and there are people waiting on you hand and foot, I felt so comfortable. I never was afraid of surgery at Beautologie. From the anesthesia to the nurse to the surgeon, it was like I was the only patient they had and they were going to take care of me.

Beautologie is a wonderful place for people like me because when I was going through my cancer there were so many days that I thought ‘ugh, I cant do this anymore’, but then once I was done with my medicine and came here its like they gave me a whole new life. It was like a reason to start my new life! I love it! I feel new again. Just like a new woman, and I think I deserve it. Breast cancer isn't the end of the world because of people like Beautologie Doctors and staff who help many more than they will ever know.
