Transitions With Doctor Lori

Anatomy of a Makeover – Ellen’s 2018 Journey

After careful planning, Amanda walks Ellen through the entire makeover, and explains every step of the way in detail. Ellen’s journey to becoming a stronger, great looking and more empowered woman will take her through the following procedures:

  • Botox / Dysport,
  • Fillers,
  • Kybella,
  • Skin tightening,
  • Intense Pulse Light Therapy (IPL),
  • Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Facial, and
  • Microneedling.

All these put together are a powerful combination, designed to transform every bit of Ellen’s look, and most importantly, make her feel her absolute best. We will be updating you about every procedure as she goes through it.

This is so so exciting, we can’t wait to show you everything! Stay tuned.

Donna Goulette’s Story – In Her Own Words

Our second selected candidate for the 2018 season of Transitions With Dr. Lori,

Donna Goulette - 2018 Selected Candidate for Transitions With Dr. Lori

Donna Goulette, is from Berlin, CT, and her story is equally unique and touching as Ellen’s. Here’s what she said to us in December:

“I was married for 37 years to a wonderful man who passed away in 2015 after spending 12 years in a wheelchair after a year in the hospital. In order to make his life as good as it could be I left my job to care for him. In those years I put him first and sort of let myself go.

I recently met a man and I want to start a new chapter in my life and would like to look the best that I can. I will also be welcoming my second grandchild in June.”

Donna has very painful varicose veins which are a serious burden for her – she can barely walk at times, and the cramps she gets at night are unbearable, not to mention the unsightly look on her left leg. She is really hoping that she would be able to play with her grand child – with no pain in her legs – and we certainly hope so too!

In addition, we are strongly encouraging Donna to quit smoking, and have decided to sponsor her Chantix prescription – completely free of charge. We can’t wait to see her transitioning to a strong, beautiful, happy and healthy woman, able to enjoy life, her new boyfriend, and her future grand child to the very fullest. Go Donna!

Stay tuned, more about Donna is on the way very soon!

Ellen Levenson’s Story – In Her Own Words

Hi everyone,

Donna Goulette - selected candidate for Transitions with Dr. Lori

Ellen Levenson – one of the first photos we took for the 2018 season of Transitions with Dr. Lori

It is a genuine pleasure to introduce to you the first selected candidate for this year’s Transitions With Dr. Lori – Ellen Levenson. Ellen is an actress, lives in Manchester, CT, and came to us with a very moving story. The following is what she told us when she applied for Transitions:

“Even at 4 years old, I knew I wanted to be an actress. I still remember the applause from my family after my stirring rendition of “I’m a Little Teapot.”

Fast forward college, marriage, motherhood, divorce and a practical career.  I raised a beautiful intelligent daughter who recently received her Master’s degree and is settled into her first real job. 

While I enjoy my career, I’d be lying if i said I left my dream behind. When my mother passed away a few years ago, I enrolled in acting classes and had some success in a couple of commercials, an off-off-off Broadway play and a led in a successful web series. Unfortunately, job demands afforded less and less ability to audition and accept roles.

Fast forward again..I realize none of us is guaranteed a “do over” and I want to make the most of my opportunity. I’ve started working out with a trainer, eating healthier and ready to resume my pursuit of acting.

I still have the enthusiasm of my 4 year old self but I’d like the outside to match the inside.

Thank you for letting me tell my story. This makeover would be just the beginning of a continuing journey to have a shot at my dream…who knows, I might even start dating again!”

…And we certainly hope she does! We can’t wait to see Ellen’s journey as we help her transform herself inside and out.

Stay tuned – more about Ellen is coming up the next couple of days!

My Wife Is Always There For Everyone Else.

My Wife Is Always There For Everyone Else.

David Kirkpatrick talks about his wife Judi and her battle with cancer. To read more about their story and how they fought cancer together click here.  David was transferred to Connecticut during her Judi’s  treatment but he flew back to Connecticut on weekends to be with his wife. During all this, David says  his wife just wanted to be there for everyone else.

IN JUDI’S OWN WORDS:

My husband David is my rock. He’s been by my side through the cancer diagnosis, the cancer treatments, the cancer recovery, the Vivesse Med Spa procedures–through every step of this Transitions journey. He’s been there for me, supporting me, and cheering me on.

David already sees a difference since Dr. Lori Greenwald began working with me a few weeks ago. In fact, the people at work, my friends, everyone wants me to keep them updated and they all say my appearance is improving. To a woman like me (who is no longer considered young in this youth culture but who has a lot of good living yet to do) it feels great to see people examine my face watch as the light goes on in their eyes and a smile come to their face.  TO READ MORE OF JUDI’S BLOG, CLICK HERE.
