Shantel's Journey in Photos
A single mother feels held back from life, unable to go out with her friends or daughter without feeling self-conscious about her excess skin. Now she's ready to move on with her life, and enjoy her life to the fullest.
Shantel had been overweight her entire life, but her daughter, Myree, inspired her to start living a healthier lifestyle.
She wants to be the best mother she can be to her daughter, but finds herself reluctant to do activities that will highlight her excess skin.
Test results revealed Shantel was anemic which made her concerned that she may not be approved for surgery.
Shantel’s post-op journey was more painful than she had anticipated, but she would do it all over again for the results she started to see.
Shantel finally feels like she looks the way she feels.
