Good for you! I am just looking to get Stomach skin removed. Did you pay out of pocket. If insurance paid or do I have to pay out of pocket. I have insurance but not great policy.

Insurance paid for the tummy skin removal only.

It is day three and I am hoping to have a better day today. Yesterday was rough but I did get up and walked 4 times.

Friends, this surgery is no joke. It is rough but will be worth it. TIP: get your legs as strong as possible before the surgery. You must use your legs for all things movement wise because you can’t strain your core.

Alao try to build up your core as much as possible. Especially the lower back because walking hunched over and sitting in a beach chair position pits a strain on those muscles.

Hang tough - healing takes time rest and protien. PS is the toughest procedures I know of.

What all does a 360 lower body lift consist of ?

For me it was stomach muscle repair and stomach side and bum skin removal and some fat placed to round my sagging bum. My bum. Had become an extension of my back less than flattering. Also some Lipo around my outer thighs. The incision was a complete circle around the body hence 365. Also known as lower body lift - LBL.

      RE: the running/training
      Honestly it started with me just doing laps around the kitchen that first post-op week.
      In a week, I graduated to walking up and down my street, then to walking around the block every day.
      The distance increased, then the speed.
      Then I started running little spurts during my walks, then to alternating 1km runs with 1km walks.
      And now I can do a continuous 10k (which I totally did for the first time this morning...so full of myself about it today, it’s disgusting.)
      Just do something everyday and slowly increase speed and duration, next thing you know you’ll be one of those odd “running people” (who I never understood pre-op, but now totally get, lol)

        Happy Sunday! I like weird people. Normal people are boring! :) I began following you and wanted to know if there are any other members you would recommend? My surgery is 8/29/19 and I want to learn as much as possible. Have a great day and thanks so much for the website.
