I will try to make this short as possible. I had a Sleeve done Oct' 2015. During spring 2017 i started to consider cosmetic surgery everything changed with weight loss. Along the process the doctors ive gotten consultations with they told me my BMI was still too high. By the beginning of 2017 i had already hit a plateau so i started to do pouch tests, different diets, and add new tips to help me lose more weight. Someone along the way mentioned revision i had no idea what it was or heard of it. I did some research and contacted my original Surgeon from my sleeve i love him and his staff. fast forward here i am just completed my pre op exams and testings for a revision this month everything will be submitted to the insurance company . my goal id for 6 months post op my revision go for another consultation and have full body work done.

among getting ready for my revision sleeve to bypass, ive still continued to research for surgery and post op care.

Looking to have : 360 Lipo, BBL, breast lift maybe w/ implants , TT, arm lift.

Looking to have Surgery Fall 2019, internationally. it will be out of pocket 100%.

Anyone have post op Bariatric tips to help transition into getting ready for cosmetics?

I have no idea what your ultimate goal weight is but those I know who have had some of the procedures you mention have been at their goal weight for at least 1 year prior to cosmetic surgery. This is likely to help avoid having to have things redone if you lose a significant amount of weight after having your cosmetic procedures.

It might be best for you to concentrate on reaching your weight loss goals after your revision surgery, commit to exercise and see where you are in a year. I am planning cosmetic surgery (face/neck lift) once I am at my goal but as much as I want it I only want to go through it once. It is expensive!!

Not sure what you are looking for in terms of advice exactly. Post my sleeve, I pretty much didn’t eat and stuck with a the liquid diet followed by soft food for 3 months to help me detox my body and start a new relationship with food. For me that was the secret to the success of my surgery I feel. It’s been 5 years and whenever I stray I remember how I and my body felt after those 3 months and that always seems helps me go back on track. Took me 4 years to let go of the weight and 1 year to stabilIze and just had my plastics done recently. I would say please don’t jump into plastics, not only because it’s expensive but also because it’s way more painful than any bariatric surgery and the recovery process is seriously tough. Hope this helps

That will be a year out from surgery but not a year out from your goal weight. They want to know you will be maintaining a stable weight for at least a year.

      2 Days Till Surgery!   It's time! Time to start my clear liquids! I am prepared! Tomorrow I will only take in clear protein, bone broth and jello for the next two days.   My surgery will be done on Monday, December 9th at 8:00 AM. I have to be at the hospital at 5:30 AM (EWWW) but who cares? LOL. Funny how you don't get all upset about doing things that are not so fun when you are doing it for a purpose! . I don't plan on doing much this weekend. I have one errand to do and after that is over I will return to my hotel room and go into prayer and meditation. Believer or not, you got to do what you need to do in order to get your heart and mind in a healthy place. . I have a Pre-Op drink I ordered that is supposed to really help your body hydrate before surgery. It's not in the photo just because I don't have it in my hands yet. I will put photos of it up when I get it. . All I can think about it how blessed I am to be able to get this done. I know how it feels to be healthy and happy then have it snatched away. It makes this all the more joyful for me. . So, it's time to lay it down and start letting my mind process what we are getting ready to do. . By the way...funny story. My doc said he had to cancel a surgery because his patient said she thought "Mashed Potatoes" was a clear food! Um, there will be no mashed potatoes for me! LOL This is HAPPENING! . Last thought for today: I knew when they drew my blood yesterday it was going to leave a nasty bruise and I was right. I am so sensitive to that kind of stuff.

      Cold no.2 since surgery. The funny part is now Ive lost my voice. I feel better in my sinuses now, but my voice is 90% gone. Losing your voice as a person who talks as a teacher for a living is so funny. You feel normal and when you speak, nothing comes out. I hope it goes over by Monday, but if it doesn't oh well. Ill be at school and cant talk to the students. Oh gee darn.

        I hope it gets better. I sing and I know how it is to lose your voice. I always get scared that it won't come back. LOL but it always does. Try Fisherman's Friend. It's nasty but it works. You can find it on amazon.

      Got my haircut today and its always amazing how much better i feel afterwards.
      i have always considered it an odd thing that i enjoy a haircut so much.
      The smell of the barbershop (no salons allowed) and the whole scissors and clippers feel and sound is so relaxing.
      I have had the same barber since 1987 and i am not sure how i will handle it if that guy ever dares to die on me. I am pretty sure that the magazines on the bottom of the stack are the same ones from my first visit.
      just started Ron Powers -Mark Twain Biography- enjoying it
