Can it be done?



Recommended Posts

So, I've lost a lot of weight and am feeling good. I look better... With my clothes on... Clothes off, I look like a burst balloon and my boobs are like golf balls in tube socks. When my weight has stabilized I plan on surgery. Question is, is there a package deal that does tummy, boobs and bingo wings?!

You may be able to get a decent quote by going to same surgeon for all procedures, however my understanding is a reputable surgeon will not do a Tummy Tuck and a Brachioplasty/arm lift at the same time.

You see a lot of tummy boob combo and arm boob combo but not a lot of all three.

There are places that will do all of them at once, most will advise that they will plan on doing them all, but how you do in surgery would dictate if they actually do all 3 at once. You see a *LOT* of "all in 1" surgeries with those getting plastics in Mexico.

I'm planning on the same procedures, but splitting it in two. Boobs/arms and then stomach in another round the following year. :)

I had my stomach (vertical and hip to hip) with muscle repair and my arms (extended down my sides) at the same time back in january. My surgeon would not have done anything else at the same time along with those.

I want the full 360 lift with the butt, tummy, thighs, hips... and then my arms. Part of me wishes they'd do it all at once so I could just get it over with, BUT, I know that the skin removals are extremely painful and I don't want to be totally immobilized... so two procedures is probably best, even if they would do it all at the same time.

I had FDL with MR, breast lift, extended arms and mons lift together my surgeon was totally comfortable with this combination

Advise not to do arms w LBL/tummy tuck at same time, boobs and LBL done together are okay. It is very difficult to take care of your drains, hygiene, take compression garment on and off, etc with LBL, boobs, and arms all at once. But some surgeons will do multiples.

I am considering Dr. Peter Fisher in San Antonio when I get to that point. He does combine some surgeries and includes butt lift with LBL as standard procedure at no extra cost, uses your fat he lipos.

      Hi I  am new here and I am going to have the gastric sleeve next month. I have to pay out of pocket so it is going quite quickly. The longer I wait the more bad stories I hear. I weigh 315 and 61 years old so I have a lot to lose. Any advice is welcome

      Went to my initial consult with the Bariatric surgeon/ program I chose. Came home with a folder full of information & helpful organization of all the testing that needs to be completed while I complete the required nutritional counseling. She also let me know my insurance typically takes 6 weeks to reply with authorization when submitted, so that puts my potential surgery date near the new year if all stays on track  I felt comfortable with her, in our discussions she agrees that I am a good candidate for the Gastric Bypass. I appreciated the 'introduction' class that was given after the consult with the surgeon where I was given this binder of every referral (from her, not my pcp referrals), & contact information for all the testing needed to make my contacts/calls tomorrow morning even easier I start my nutrition classes on June 5th, so that's when the clock will start toward insurance approval & getting the tool to help me reach my goals

      Day 5 post-op... didn't sleep great last night, lots of gas pain and it was my first night without using the rx pain meds. I'm tired and feeling rather stupid. My nurse is supposed to call today for a check in, so I'm debating taking a nap now and risk missing her call, or forcing myself to stay awake and pray she calls soon. Also, showering should be considered a workout... just doing the basics used up all my energy. Weight is slowly working its way down. I know that I shouldn't be on the scale yet, but I couldn't resist. I'm down almost 9lb down since surgery. Yay!

        You are allowed to feel tired, take naps and only do the minimum this soon after the surgery. Listen to your body and be good to yourself at this time. Most important things to care about at this time is hydration and protein. It is a full-time job to stay on top of that and prioritize your energy there for now. Just give your body the time to heal and adjust, don’t rush the recovery.
