Tami Magby celebrated mother’s day in an exceptional way this year. Not only did she celebrate her wonderful 10 year-old-son, successfully juggling two jobs, and being a part-time student, but she also celebrated her new body. Tami was the recipient of plastic surgery by Dr. David Whiteman of Southern Plastic Surgery as well as free personal training session by personal trainer Daryl Madison of Lifestyle Fitness.
Tami’s journey, chronicled by TLC’s Ultimate Makeover, began when she saw a similar candidate on another episode of the show and “something clicked.” “I knew I owed it to myself to learn how to better care for my body,” declared Tami. Dr. Whiteman and Daryl Madison knew she deserved the ultimate makeover when she lost the prerequisite 15 pounds and quit smoking to prepare her body for liposuction and a tummy tuck and to aid in better healing.
During his initial consultation with Tami, Dr. Whiteman reiterated, “This is going to be a team effort. I know how to make your body look better, but it’s up to you to commit to exercising regularly and engaging in healthy living by not smoking to really see the kind of results you want in order to be satisfied.”
Dr. Whiteman, a long time proponent of total patient care was very thorough when it came to understanding Tami’s long-term goals and desired results, “Tami’s situation is very common amongst patients her age. They’re incredibly busy. Juggling children, family, and job can make you lose discipline when it comes to health. They go and go and go and tend to run out of steam when it comes to maintaining a regular exercise routine and a healthy weight with the changing metabolism that often emerges during a woman’s 30’s and 40’s.”
Dr. Whiteman’s expert surgical skill and Daryl’s inspirational fitness guidance combined with Tami’s determination to better her life paid off. The now svelte mother stood proudly in front of her family and friends at her big reveal party to show-off her new body.
“I am so thankful for what Dr. Whiteman, Daryl, and everyone from the show have done for me. I now look, and more importantly, feel good. I know I’ll be able to better do all the things I did before because I’m physically more able,” declared Tami during her Ultimate Makeover’s interview.
