Dear Dr. Ganchi, I just saw you today for my six month check up. I can hardly believe it has been that long, the surgery and recovery all went so well. I had wanted to write you this letter since surgery to express my gratitude for the wonderful job you did. I have never been happier with my body. Having my first child at 19 and being very thin caused a great deal of stretch marks and then three subsequent pregnancies with large babies didn’t help. Now I can look at myself in the mirror and be proud of my body, instead of ashamed. You are also one of the nicest and most knowledgeable doctors I have ever had the pleasure of knowing, and I felt so confident about my decision to have surgery. I can’t thank you enough. I think you are just wonderful, and I tell everyone I know that if they want to change something about themselves they really don’t like or are tired of living with, they should see you because you are the BEST! Thank you so very much and Happy Holidays.
