    Boobs !

    It depends on your region in the country. Here in TN a lift with an implant is about $7500.
  2. I think you look very proportioned which is what I'm aiming for. Nice work!

    Did you have a lift and implant or just a lift? They look GREAT!
  4. Thank you everyone for sharing and especially sharing pictures. I am currently a 36 D with a lot of volume loss. I saw a reputable PS who thinks I could benefit from the lift alone and possibly be a C cup. I don't know if I want to go through this and come out smaller than I am now. I am very curvy and have wide hips. The bigger breast kind of balance it out. I am MUCH smaller on top as I also have lymphedema of my legs so being much smaller on top can accentuate the bottom. I like being a D and not sure if I would be okay with just the lift. He was 50/50 on with or without the implant. I don't like the thought of it looking unnatural but he did say it would be under the muscle so it wouldn't look completely unnatural. He never mentioned any "maintenance" and I don't think any of my girlfriends with them have had to change them out? HE did say that with the lift and implant they tend to be very HIGH and then settle down after a few months. He says many people do the lift first then come back for the implant. I do NOT want to do back to back anesthesia and surgery ($$$) so that is part of why I want to do the implant on the front end. So many decisions!!! I am also still losing (I am 3 years out, lost 135, gained back 30, lost 25 and currently doing the Whole 30 and losing more). I do appreciate the input!

    The Afters

  6. I'm so happy for you! I waited until I was 45. That is my only regret - thinking I could do it "on my own" and losing precious time. 50 is looming in the future and I want to live every moment realizing how much I missed out on. Good god you for pushing on!!

    Buying scrubs today in regular size L (pants) and M (tops). At one point, I had to wear 4X pants because the 3X were too tight when I sat. Hard to believe.

    post vsg .hot flashes!

    I know this is an old thread but I'm hoping to resurrect it. Having serious, sleep depriving Hot Flashes. I'm 46, almost 47 and GYN checked levels. Levels have all dropped but I'm not done. Started taking Black Cohash. Having strange dreams (many about sex ????) and it gives me almost a hang over headache in morning. Anyone else experience that with Black Cohash? Would love to know.

    Sleevers over 300lbs?

    High weight 325 (undocumented at 332). I'm 191.6 15 months post op. Insurance approved on first try.

    Sleevers over 300lbs?

    Either way, WLS is the best thing I've ever done. Looking back I think I was very pro VSG. Now, I realize it's hard work either way but much better than having waited for some random diet to work. Best of luck!
  12. I always say this journey is as much mental as it is physical. People do treat you differently. Mostly better but that kind of pisses me off as much as those that were ignoring or mean when I was big. Shallow people suck. I think real friends stay the same. I think acquaintances might change. I definitely feel like I'm scrutinized and under a microscope a little more than I was. Whatever you do, please stay focused on yourself. I have very thick skin. I'm a nurse manager. I walk around with a target on my back most days. I was already used to "holding my head up and being assertive". It's easier now. But it still pisses me off that size matters. This is a journey about you. Best thing to do is NOT make it about others. You will never please everyone - why even try! Be prepared for comments, good and bad. Having a plan on how to talk about it helps. Being unprepared for the negativity or the over eager-can't-stop-talking about your weight loss friend is helpful. You're in charge - not them! Good luck. It's worth every worry.
