Very personal, loose skin around my vag.



Recommended Posts

I had my sleeve in Dec of 2013. I've been so happy with the weight loss, nearly 60 lbs. gone. I am having issues with loose sagging skin especially in the vaginal area. I have it on my belly too but I plan on having a Tummy Tuck for that. I have so much loose fat down there and it's only gonna sag more the more I loose. Anyone else have these worries? I'm now googling Labiaplasty because it bothers me that much. I do workout but I don't think there's any exercise that can help with this area,

Don't rush into plastic surgery - you'll be surprised how things firm up over time. My skin tightened and I kept thinking I must be gaining weight and filling back out, but a quick check of the scales dismissed that. The human body is an amazing thing - constantly changing and adapting to the things we do to it over time! Do you have a regular sexual partner? How old are you? All these things will affect your body and mind.

Well done with the weight loss and stop obsessing about your changing body! Give it (and yourself) a break!

I am 39 yrs old. And yes I have a very active sex life. I'm very self conscious of that area down there, hoping things firm up as u say. Thank you !

I had the same problem. You will probably find that your plastic surgeon will tell you that will be taken care of with your Tummy Tuck. When he told me that I really thought there was no way a tummy tuck could take care of a fat vag... I was pleasantly surprised.

Yep a Tummy Tuck will take care of most of it anyway. When they make the incision to repair the muscles, they pull the tummy skin down and cut off excess skin and the lower belly skin up and cut off excess skin before meeting in the middle to close up.

      I had surgery on September 27th and I am one of the very blessed ones that have had no pain to speak of besides a couple days of gas pain. I have lost 9 lb since surgery, and I am feeling a little like I should have lost more by now. Is that realistic? Or am I being too fussy?

        Are you on meds for reflux? If not you should be at this point. If you are already on reflux meds get in touch with your surgeon asap as this is not normal. If fact i would be getting in touch with the surgeon either way. I hope your issue is resolved and you feel better soon

      Tomorrow is the big day! Getting sleeved in the morning and possibly spending a dark and stormy night in the hospital after. I'm actually excited about that because rain on wedding days and birthdays is considered a sign of good luck- so wouldn't a commitment of re-birth qualify as well?
      Can't wait to see y'all on the other side!
