Lady bits and weightloss



Recommended Posts

CAUTION, I AM A VERY RAW UNFILTERED WOMAN, I APOLOGISE IF I OFFEND.

First off I would like to introduce myself,

My name is Sami, I am a 30 year old happily married wife and mother if 6 kids with a grandbaby on the way. (Yes you read that that right, I am a 30 year old grandmother). Just to answer the question that lingers in most peoples heads when they first meet me I will just say this, we are a blended family, I'm 30 years old, my husband is 39, his kids+my kids=OUR KIDS .

I had gastric bypass February 5th, 2017.

I am 4ft11 in, my starting weight was 330lbs in 2015, my pre-op weight was 231lbs my current weight is about 120lbs depending in what doctor you talk to LOL!!!

I just wanted to know though, AM I THE ONLY GAL EXTREMELY UPSET OVER THE SAGGING PUBIS SKIN! MY MUFF TOP TO IS NOW A MUFF FLAP AND I HATE IT!!! I NEVER EVEN DAWNED ON ME HOW MUCH WEIGHT I HAD DOWN THERE!!! WHAT THE ACTUAL FRICK!!!

Sorry ladies but this is something I never hear anyone talk about but I'm convinced I am not the only one who thought it.

Please, any tips besides skin surgery or learning to love myself because I am already doing both of those things.

Well, you already said you're having skin surgery so .... hopefully that will provide the confidence boost. The main reason I am having a Tummy Tuck is because of the FUPA (fatty upper pubic area). I hate it. You can see it bulge in my pants like I have dude parts. lol. Yeah, the tummy needs work, too, but I can mostly hide that except for the FUPA. I am excited to have that chop-chopped. You are not alone.

I'm not particularly confident over the whole skin removal surgery because I feel it's medically unecessary for me, however I could just be too nervous to have another surgery being I have nearly bled out during the last few I have had this year.
Thanks for your input

Ok, so about 15-20 lbs ago, my mon pubis stuck out like how @mousecat88 described above...when I wore fitted pants or dresses, it looked like I was packing something down there. Especially from the side view.

Now, however its alot less "sticky-outy", to the point that it doesn't even bug me anymore (my butt is a different story altogether, though).

But yeah, if you don't have any more weight to lose, most likely the only way to address is it with a Tummy Tuck and possible Lipo on the mons pubis area....

Mine doesn't stick out at all, I am below my weight loss goal leaving me with a sort of "dust flap." I am eligible for the skin surgery however last year I was diagnosed with reproductive cancer and opted out of skin surgery at the time because I was more up to fight for a hysterectomy instead. I am nearly a month post op from my hysterectomy now and with the tumors gone I can now see my own thunder from under and it's not a pleasant site however I am grateful to be alive. About two weeks ago I ended hemorrhaging which almost ended my life in almost 15 minutes flat which leads me to this realization: I have nearly bled to death while recovering from my last 3 operations. So I guess you could say I am extremely paranoid to have the skin done.
Oh well, I either learn to live with it or chop it off :)

Before I was diagnosed with plantar fascitis I actually lost over 100lb with diet and much much excerise. I had saggy skin and had a lower body lift, a back lift a arm lift, a breast reduced with lift with liposuction. My plastic surgeon actually lipoed my mons public because it was sticking out

You are not the only one.

So glad to hear you are cancer free. I can understand your concerns about bleeding out on previous surgeries. You can talk with a plastic surgeon about this issue.

IDK if there is anything besides surgery and loving yourself to deal with body issues. Counseling is an option.

I was more than thankful to have my health back. I felt my skin was livable. My husband and my Dr. are the only people that see it up close and personal. *smile* I’ve waited five years after surgery to investigate plastics.

Wish you the best in whatever you decide.

Ok graphic n gross but I guess this is the post to ask about LOL! Mine doesn't stick out or bulge but it looks weird, I noticed when I was walking it felt like there was a gap down between my legs, looking in the mirror the 2 sides of my womanhood don't meet together anymore, there is a gap between the 2 sides n it looks weird. Would the lower body lift help this? I have been researching and really don't know how to pay for all the plastics it's crazy expensive. anyone tried any other skin tightening alternatives that helped?
