Full Body Lift...when Is It Safe To Travel?



Recommended Posts

Even though I'm only 3 months post sleeve, I'm already planning the next phase. Fingers crossed I get to goal one year post op (June 2013).

I'm going to Hawaii in early September and was looking at getting the surgery before I go.

Or would it be best I wait until my return?

Or do I wait a while after I reach my goal before I contemplate surgery?

Your thoughts?

There was one sleever on here that recommended waiting a minimum of one year after hitting goal, before deciding on surgery. She said her skin continued to change up to one year after hitting goal. She said she would have had alot more cosmetic surgery done right after hitting goal compared to what she was contemplating after one year. I decided I'll wait....it will save me money if I only have to get one procedure instead of two or three.

I suppose so, though my skin is not going to bounce back like I wish it would. Everything has been heading south for years.

I'm pretty sure that they tell you to wait a year or two before having any plastic surgery done. Some people still need it after that point and some don't. Even if you still need it, it may be less skin you need to remove (and less risk). I've read a lot of threads and articles that doing weight training during weight loss can help tone, so maybe try that too? You might be surprised where you are a year from now.

      It's Saturday!!! My fiance and I are out doing yard work and I made the mistake of not staying hydrated before going out so now my body is shaking and weak. I have my pre-op appointment Tuesday, the 2nd and I am trying my hardest to lose another 2 lbs by then.
