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.

      Looks like I need people around to complete a 10K.  I tried to do one by myself this afternoon and I gave up at around the 7km mark.  Gonna try again on Friday, but I may have to look into joining a running club...

      My Surgeon asked me a question the other day and i didn't give it a lot of thought at the time.
      He asked "do you tell"
      we were talking about peoples reaction to seeing me since i lost such a large amount of me.
      I answered that i do tell if they ask but that it seems most everyone is afraid to mention it if they haven't seen me in a while or they decided they already know the answer so they don't need the truth from me (we all know those types)
      I have had exactly one family friend come right out and ask me how i lost so much weight this year and i told her i had Gastric Sleeve.
      I am sure family has passed it around to other family (you have that type family don't you? or is it just me)  
      So that left me wondering "do you tell" and i dont mean right at surgery time. more like a year or so down the road do you say how or do you just say cut out the sugar and carbs and WAALAA
      Its a real personal choice to open yourself up to that kind of criticism and we know all about how we took the "Easy" way and yada yada yada.
      hope everyone is having a great week
