Kirsty’s Weight Loss Surgery Transformation Featured in New Idea!

Jan 25, 2018 | News

Kirsty Simmons was our winner of the $25,000 Luxury Surgery Giveaway! Since returning from Bangkok where she had a Breast Lift + Augmentation and Tummy Tuck surgery, her journey has gone viral!

Kirsty shared her surgical journey thoughts with New Idea magazine and discussed how she turned to food for comfort, going from 60kg to 117kg.

Here is what Kirsty had to say about it all-

“I kept trying to diet, but nothing worked,’ she says. ‘I was borderline diabetic and a specialist told me I should consider surgery.’ Initially it seemed too drastic for me, but after another failed diet, I couldn’t face wasting more of my life battling this unhealthy size and lifestyle.

I hardly went out, I couldn’t look at myself in the mirror and my confidence was shattered. In February 2015, I went for gastric bypass surgery and it was a great decision. Coupled with rigorous exercise, I lost 60kg in just 12 months. But despite dropping from a size 24 to a size 10, I still couldn’t bear to look at myself in the mirror. I had all this loose skin around my tummy, it was so depressing that my body didn’t match up to the work I’d put in. 

I decided to look into skin removal surgery, and then a friend suggested I should enter a competition that was being run by CosMediTour. I was shocked to say the least, when I found out I had won! I travelled to Thailand for a $25,000 Breast Augmentation and Extended Tummy Tuck. They removed over a kilo of skin from my stomach. Looking down and not seeing that roll was the most amazing feeling.”

 

Back home in Sydney, Kirsty is at last feeling positive. She says her confidence has grown and is ready to find love she adds enthusiastically.
