Before and After pics Panniculectomy



Recommended Posts

Hey everyone! I had my panniculectomy on June 5th and here are my before and afters!

Stats:

Highest: 540 Size 38

Surgery: 480 Size 32

Panni: 275 Size 24 pant 18 top

Current: 248 Size 16 bottom and 14 top

15 pounds of skin removed

I am soooo incredibly happy with the results! I don't care about scars. I went from a size 24 before surgery to a size 16. AMAZING!

I want to have more surgeries done but I need to wait to get to goal first. My panni was so bad I had to get it removed before getting to goal.

My thighs will be first. Ugh I hate them!

Congrats girl! It's an amazing feeling to have all that skin taken away and to free your body from it!! So happy for you :-)
Can I ask, cause I'm still struggling in my new body after plastics? How long did your swelling last? Now that the stomach skin is gone does it just leave you disliking other areas more? I'm 3 weeks out and basically look 6 months pregnant from swelling and although I'm so happy and basically a new person, I'm stressing about the top part of my belly where it seems like too much skin was left. Plastics is definitely a different kind of mind game.

I was swollen for a long while. Several months in size 4 instead of 00/0. Then gradually back into my 00/0's. Took at least 6-9 months to be back in my normal size.

Though I am still pre-op and only 57 pounds down from my highest weight, I already have a very bad pannus, as well as a hanging mons pubis so big that if I'm not careful will hang out of my shorts....like a scrotum! It has kept me from wearing regular panties now for 5-6 years. I'm assuming the only real difference will be that the pannus is flatter once I'm at goal, so know I will need plastics. Has anyone had work done to their mons area? For me personally it is problem #1.

So glad you finally had the excess skisn of your lower belly removed. It looks real good and should help and motivate you to get to goal. Did you have any drain? If so for how long?

I had my breast and arms done but need to lose another 50 pounds before he will do my belly. It looks like yours did. I am hoping even though he is asking for insurance to pay for the lower belly that he will do the top half also. He did my forarms even though insurance only paid for the upper arms. Hope your feeling better each and every day.

Your transformation is amazing! Thank you for sharing your pics, too. I am also considering this procedure, but right now my insurance considers it cosmetic even though my pannus hangs down below my pubis and I have had chronic fungal infections of the skin underneath. But I consider this process of getting my insurance to pay a work in progress. Congratulations on your success AND your new bod!

Absolutely amazing! I was wondering if you don't mind me asking, do you still like the sleeve?

      Yesterday I "officially" eclipsed the 100 lb mark.  I'm sure if you're in any other country than the US, the 45.3 kg mark doesn't sound as much of a milestone, but it's very cathartic for me to post that I hit it. 
      I recently read back through both my BP status updates and my private journal and hitting this milestone makes all the things I "worried" about seem stupid, but I know they're not stupid because they were very real at the time.  Also, I think if I didn't give these fears my full attention, I may not have been as successful as I have been to date.
      I'm about 50 more pounds off my end goal and I know that will not be the end, I will continue to strive for bettering myself in both physical and emotional ways.  I have to hunker down and get this done. 
      I'm noticing if I don't exercise every day, the weight loss stalls quite a bit.  I'm not really into the 80/20 theory with diet and exercise, I think there's a genetic modifier that needs to be applied and it's different for everyone, just my opinion... don't hold it against me.

      RE: the running/training
      Honestly it started with me just doing laps around the kitchen that first post-op week.
      In a week, I graduated to walking up and down my street, then to walking around the block every day.
      The distance increased, then the speed.
      Then I started running little spurts during my walks, then to alternating 1km runs with 1km walks.
      And now I can do a continuous 10k (which I totally did for the first time this morning...so full of myself about it today, it’s disgusting.)
      Just do something everyday and slowly increase speed and duration, next thing you know you’ll be one of those odd “running people” (who I never understood pre-op, but now totally get, lol)
