Oh, how 'I've been dreaming about some plastic surgery -- the finishing touches to my future transformation. I used to think a Tummy Tuck would be my first, but then I heard about a circumferential lower body lift. This lifts your tummy, the lower back/hip area, and your mons area (that's the fleshy part of the vajay-jay). Now this would make a dramatic difference on how pants fit!

I'd also like a brachioplasty to get rid of my arm wings, but it won't be first. I'll just wear sleeves a little longer. Same deal with the boobs. At least you can wear a heavy duty bra to keep the sagging girls hoisted up. Maybe I'll marry into money and can also get a boob lift one of these days.

Tiffykins asked if anyones bodyshape had changed, and yes, mine did... I found out i have a waist! :lol0: More of an hour glass shape now, but won't tuck in my shirts 'cause of my belly...

I've been researching about plastics.... sighhhhhhh........ all about the $$$$ and I don't have a green thumb so the money tree I planted died....

But I have heard that some plastic surgens do "package" deals... gotta research, and have been saving for it...

Tummy tuck and legs still first on the list... I was a bit surprised by the legs... didn't think I would lose that much to make them do what they are doing:scared0:

My mother recently had a TT done and on one of her last follow-up visits she mentioned to her PS that my husband and I had just had VSG. He said that when we are ready for surgery to come see him b/c one of the hospitals he works with is a teaching hospital and our surgeries could be done by PS's in training with supervision at a lower fee. Mom had students do rounds on her before and after surgery but they didn't do the surgery. I so want a TT!!! It will be something worth looking into!

Also, I had a breast reduction back in 2003 and insurance paid with no problems. I didn't need additional documentation that I had had rashes or anything like that, but it also could have been in the way that my doctor worded his letter to our insurance company.

If you also get rashes periodically under "the girls" that may help substantiate a case for insurance coverage to perk them up.

Pannus is the apron or abdominal fat that hangs down over the pubic/thigh area.

That will be the first thing I will have done after I lose the weight. My mom had to have it done and a breast lift. It runs in our family and it is not even an obesity thing just issue if you have kids. Mine is the worst. I will have the breast lift and pannus done together.

That is what I am thinking, too - and don't know if I will wait the 1 year after reaching goal as I have been overweight for so long, that I doubt the memory in my skin is even there any longer. Plus I had 2 kids and nursed them both.

My first response to this was of course getting the "girls" lifted... but I'm amazed at how much I have lost there, which is ok by me... I've gone from a 54-56 D to now a 40 C( could be a B cup but the way I have lost weight... they do better in a B cup )

I just went and tanned today... and OMG... my legs....... they are awful!! I NEVER dreamed I would have skinny legs, but they are!! but I also didn't realize how BIG they were so the skin is sagging sooo bad... A total lower body lift is what I want...

Then I start to think...... am I too old to even bother??

Legs looks ok in pants, but the belly has that "butt front" look... anyone know what I'm talking about>>>>???

VA- I nursed both my kids tooo.... they never even knew what a bottle was. But i would take the belly/leg lift over the boobs in a heart beat!

I've heard that if you do it too soon, there may still be some sagging that happens afterwards and then you want to have it done again. I'd wait until everything really stabilizes if I was doing it.

      I can now buy clothes in normal stores again. Admittedly the first time when I started trying on clothes, I really had to keep myself calm. Normally trying on clothes causes me to become SOOO depressed that it take weeks just to get over it. Now, I have to keep myself from not wanting to buy everything!

      Hi, congrats on your surgery!  Saw you went to Dr. Pleatman.  I've been between doing the Lap Band and sleeve.  I was suppose to have a consultation with Dr. Pleatman this month.  So far great experience with his office coordinator Carrie (sp?).   Feeling really scared and nervous about getting the sleeve.  If you can share...how was your experience with Dr. Pleatman's office and the surgery?   Thanks!

      I'm not new, I was an active Lapbander from:

      February 6, 2017 Here I am on October 4, 2019 thinking back over my Lapband journey and how I thought I would be banded for life. Unfortunately, I have been sick for some time, and am on medications; and well my weight has constantly slowly increased. I was 225 pounds when I had my Lapband surgery on Dec. 17, 2010. At least my weight hasn't reached 210. I have been fluctuating between 202-206. For that, I'm grateful. I'm just excited to be able to have another tool to assist me with my weight loss journey. I'm not looking forward to the liquid stage, however.
