My surgeon is very experienced in the single incision VSG but even he hesitates to do it. I’ll tell you this honestly, he did 4 incisions for me and they are TINY. I’m talking mm not inches. 15 days out and they’re basically completely healed. No regrets. I returned to work today and actually showed them to the people there and they were amazed. They couldn’t even spot 2 of them! Also, I carry my weight in my tummy, so I know I’m going to need a tuck as soon as I stabilize my weight. With how small they are, they won’t be noticed and with the plastics, I’m not worried at all.
Also, arnica cream works wonders!

That is reassuring because as you mentioned, if the surgeon is experienced with the single incision and finds that he does need to add more incisions the chances are they will be small and not noticeable. I’m hoping to avoid the loose skin if possible so that I won’t need a Tummy Tuck. I’m active and go to the gym about 5 times a week and I need to lose about 50-60 pounds total to be at my ideal weight. I’d settle for 40-45. Being that I am considered lower BMI I am fully expecting to lose slowly. From the posts I’ve read it has prepared me for that which I am completely fine with. Of course I’ll only really know when I actually have the surgery. Thanks for the tips and advice.

Thank you for the kind words. I still struggle bc I felt like such a ding-dong after posting Picts. Still so insecure about having people purposely look at me. But thank you for being so sweet. Yeah, the social anxiety piece was the main driver. It was no way to live!

      Losing 1.2kg/2.6lbs in a week seems to be a bit disappointing when in reality it is quite reasonable at about 5kg/11lbs per month. I think that I cant quite remember the last 30kg/65lbs. Oh the mind games we play!

      Yup, I did it! I RAN my SECOND continuous 5K ever this morning! There is an option to do a 10K Sunday morning and I'm going to give it a try. It's basically the 5K twice. Even though this is a girls' trip, I kinda wish Mr. was here so he could witness my awesomeness.
      @FluffyChix, no it wasn't on the beach nor was I wearing a bikini, but I think I should get bonus points anyway, just for doing it a second time 😎

        OMG! You are so inspiring! How did you get started with your training? Running/jogging a 5k is one of my goals as well. Your journey is truly wonderful.

      just got back from my 2 year check up and wanted to post.  The kcal drop has me worried and thinking i need to up the weights and trim back the cardio. Never saw myself as a person who cared for bulky muscles but the increased calorie burn from more muscle mass certainly wont hurt. 
      New goal for the next year i guess.
