Weight loss surgery patient Leanne

"Having the surgery has made a massive difference to my life. It made me a lot more confident and it has given me back my life."

Leanne’s Weight Loss Story

Before I went for surgery everyone used to think I was a really confident person but actually I wasn’t. My friend had a gastric sleeve and quite quickly I noticed a drastic difference in her weight. She said she had a gastric sleeve with Tonic so I researched tonic and spoke to them directly, they were really lovely and made me feel really comfortable and like a little family team that made you feel at ease.

My Tonic Experience

I had a gastric sleeve with tonic and I’ve lost six stone I’ve gone to down from size 24 to a size 14.

When I first arrived for surgery i met with my surgeon Mr Award who is really lovely and down to earth, he’s just like a friend, he went though everything step by step made me feel comfortable for surgery and I really felt at ease in the hospital with the surgeon and the staff.

When I got home I thought I would be recovering for a while but actually it was really quick, for one day I rested, the next day I was up doing my usual things. After my surgery I had the vitamins “VitMyLife” Tonic’s own brand of multivitamins, this gave me the confidence that I was still having all the right nutrients I needed every single day.

Life after Surgery

Having the surgery has made a massive difference to my life. I can now fit into smaller clothes, I’m now a size 14 instead of size 22. I’m really grateful to Tonic for everything they have done for me and my new life.

I would 100% recommend Tonic to anyone thinking of having the operation, its made me a lot more confident it has given me back my life.
