Hi Fellow Sleevers,

I may be a little early but I wanted to start planning and saving.

How soon after the sleeve surgery did you have plastic surgery?

Also, how much weight did you lose before you completed plastic surgery?

I know this is personal, but if you don't mind sharing (I know this will help a lot of us)....
What plastics did you have completed?

What was the cost?

Thank you!!

I had a facelift and necklift 10 months after surgery. I was at goal and had lost 83 lbs. I am still considering a tummy tuck and butt augmentation, haven't decided yet. I had my surgery in Costa Rica and the surgeon and hospital cost was $8700.

Yes, and the last 10 lbs seemed to come out of my face! I figured I could cover up the saggy body bits with clothing, but everyone could see my jowls, turkey neck, and deeper wrinkles so I went with the face first

I'm curious about this too! I was hoping being young would help with the skin.. but it truly hasn't. I am not at goal yet, and I plan to wait awhile to see what happens naturally (and ignore the fact that there is no way I could ever afford it in the first place..).

Lol! I am 21 now, I was sleeved when I was 20. But really, supposedly there are sooo many factors that age is only a small one. And my skin very well could shrink back... but right now it doesn't feel like it ever will! Everything is easily hidden with a spanx "thing" (I call them my "things"... always have lol!) that I got from target. So it really isn't that much of a big deal.
