I was wondering today if after surgery these marble size lumps in a variety of spots on my body (Dr says they are harmless adipose or fatty tissue cysts) will eventually dissolve or will I end up looking like a big skin bag with some loose marbles stuck to the sides? Does anyone else have these?

I had some of those as well (I've since had plastic surgery)

I have a few on my side. They flare up from time to time and hurt. I'm still 263, so not sure if they will go away. Haven't noticed them lately. Mine are called lipomas.

I have a lipoma as well. My GP said it would have to be removed surgically. Will need to talk to my surgeon. I asked a friend if she could see mine, and she pointed to several places she had them - I've known her for years and had never noticed them. So I think they're more noticable to us than to others because we know what our bodies look like.

Yes - that’s what I have too! So, catwoman7 was it the plastic surgery that got rid of them or were they gone before you had it?

the plastic surgery took care of most of them. I still have some dimply areas on my abdomen, but it's way better than it was before. But at my age (almost 60), a few dimples on one's abdomen is not unusual....

(Prior to surgery) I had a VERY large lipoma on the back of my neck "the buffalo hump". I had it surgically removed. It was massive! You can get them removed if you want. For some people, it's a genetic thing and they will come back but fortunately I just had that one. It was removed in 2013.

And add me to Lipona Lane! I asked my ortho ( because I darken HIs Door most often) told me what it was, I confess it was just a blob at first to me, consulted a general SURGERY person, broad nearly yawned in my face " You can walk around with THAT. the rest of your life not going to hurt You None!" pafooey, IT DISTRESSES ME TO LOOK At It! That was at least 6 months ago, now the blob on the left upper arm is encroaching over onto my antcubital vein and I have one starting in about the same place on the right inner elbow and a biggish one has developed over the bottom of my right arm scar where my humeral fracture was surgically repaired. Well one of my favorite cable shows is "Dr Pimple-popper" she's a Dermatologist so got referall to local one. Also a big fat mistake, first she told me not to be concerned about the big dark spots over my now prominent cheekbones, the family legends were true after all, I do have some Native American blood in my American Mongrel mix, only explanation I can come up with . I now look like serveral paternal cousins, just a different color pallet! She told me to be grateful as fair as I am, I don't have Skin Cancer. Shoot I never thought Cancer, I wanted something to eradicate or at least fade these marks, had people who would like to mind my business tell me they look like healing bruises. Then we got to my lipomas, each look like halved 🎾 balls, told me " Why don't you ask a General Surgeon? " Who the flying Whoopie- Doopies does She Think sent me to her? It was thoroughly useless waste of my time, but I see on my after- visit she billed my insurance like she actually repaired these things! Enough Gall to be divided in 3 parts, I'm thinking!
So when I go for my Bariatric today, I will ask if there is a Surgical someone at Martha Morehouse Pavillion I could at least speak with, even if it is largely cosmetic , looking at them distresses me, Lost all this weight to look blobby and lumpy? Sob Sob, it ain't FAIR😪😥

      Donated 50 lbs of Jeans and another 30lbs of shirts to Salvation Army. 
      Had to go buy some new clothes that I used to hate, but now kind of like. Trying not to buy too many though as I know in a few months I'll be donating them as well.

      Hello everyone! I just joined the forum today. Had my surgery almost 3 months ago and lost about 44 pounds. Most of the weight was lost within the first month, and my weight loss slowed down almost to a stop. I became very frustrated. Talked with my dietitian several times, and it turns out I haven't been eating enough. Who knew! I was eating around 500 calories a day, and exercising daily. Well, I had to up my intake to 800 to 1,000 calories. I'll see what happens.
