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. :)

My PS would not do breasts and arms together as Kim noted. Skin is pulling in opposite directions. That said many PS combine them.

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.

      Getting a little nervous about post surgery life adaptation. I really want to succeed, but habits are so hard to break.

      Good news and Meh news...
      Meh: so I think I experienced/am experiencing my first stall-ish since surgery and now I get how frustrating it can be!  So annoying to wake up every morning to watch the scale report a gain or loss of the same 1.5 pounds for over 2 weeks.  *sigh*.  Some say put the scale away, but I log my weight every morning to get a daily moving average of my weight.  So long as this moving average is not heading upwards (which it isn’t and hasn’t since post-op) then I am good with my curent “minimalist” weekly weight loss rate, however small I think it is 🙄.
      However.
      The Good news:
      To allow for some self back patting, and to remind myself of the bigger picture, I set a bunch of interim goals/milestones... a few of which are 10lbs increment weight loss goals:
      So this morning, after hovering within 1.5 pounds of an interim goal for over 2 weeks, I weighed in at 164.8, and officially lost 70 lbs!  In 4 months.  That is 30% of my starting body weight.  Or the equivalent of my 10 year old neice. How crazy is that.
      Next Goal: weigh in at 162lbs to be merely overweight (and not obese!)

      I am in the Pre-Op stage.  I have 4 more nutrition classes to go to.  I've had my endoscopy with favorable results although I was told I had an abnormal z-line.  Everything looks good so far.  Had my team appointment with the psychologist and have my pulmonologist  this week.  I chose the sleeve
