Tummy Tuck?

Recommended Posts

I have read that if you had any stomach surgeries you can't do the balloon.

Does that included tummy tucks?

Baloon is placed inside stomach. The procedures you had were skin incisions and involved uterus

Nothing to be concerned about

      Ten years ago I had by-pass surgery.  My starting weight was 562.  It has been a long road, and I wanted my goal to be 180.  I am 218 and now I find out my weight for 5'1" should be 143.  I really think I can get that thin.  HELP!!!!!

        Congratulations on your long-term success. That is very inspiring! I don't know if you can get to 143, but you've done awesome so far. Good luck!

      2. KimTriesRNY

        You may want to be thinner, but that is a success! Wow! You must feel so much healthier now!

        Of course you can get to 143! You lost 344 pounds...didn't you? And, honestly, did that seem possible all those years ago?

        Orchids&Dragons is right. You've done awesome so far. While there's never a guarantee, you've proven that it's possible. Patience is your best friend.
