I was wondering if there were any women who had had the pannulectomy at 60-65 years old and how you did with healing

Well I guess there isn't anyone as old as I am that has had the pannulectomy. My pre-appointment is getting close and I am a little nervous and wonder if I should forget about having it done because of my age.

I attended a webinar yesterday and one of the questions I asked was if age was a limiting factor in having this surgery The surgeon said no, your overall health and having reached a weight-loss goal/plateau were much more important than my age... which is 62! This is a surgeon I trust, whose work I am familiar with; he basically reconstructed my husband's leg and saved it after knee surgery went horribly wrong and became life-threateningly infected.

Will be following you. I had to google what this procedure was 🤣😁 Ah, my apron which I hate!!!! Just got sleeved and would love to have this done. When you get a Tummy Tuck does this get rid of the Apron too?

Yes it does but the Tummy Tuck is a harder surgery but the younger people do it a lot but as long as my insurance is willing to cover this I am happy. I go for an appointment just to talk to my surgeon on the 4th oct to find out anything I have missed about it.
