Hi all,

Had VSG a year ago and lost 55 lbs. I had the lapband and of course converted to the sleeve. I experienced loose skin with the VSG as opposed to the lapband, even though I lost more weight with the lapband. I do not want any surgery to remove the loose skin although it’s not that noticeable to someone else, but more of a concern to me since I have to look at it everyday naked. My face is small naturally, but it now looks sunken. I started exercising four months after the surgery; however the loose skin is still very present.

Any suggestions? Intimacy is on the back burner because of this. Help!!!!

I don't know that there's much you can do outside of plastic surgery, unfortunately. If there's not a lot of it, exercise might help - but if you have a lot of it, there's only so much you can do...

You've put whoopy on the back burner because of this? Nooooo! It's your basic human right! ;-)

If you are afraid to get your kit off in case your amore judges you negatively, then replace him/her with someone less shallow.

If you are afraid to get your kit off in case you judge yourself negatively, you can always do what my Other Half suggested to me (when I was feeling similarly sensitive): - "Stop looking in the mirror so much." 😮;-)

I know that sounds glib and insensitive, but that's what it boils down to. I took his advice, and my floppy bits don't bother me so much any more. 🙂

Yes, I have. I seem to have less self confidence now than I did when I weighed 256 lbs. I am now 165. My Mom did tell me if I take my clothes off in front of my man and he goes to the store for milk and never comes back, he wasn’t meant for me!!
Moms Gotta luv em

      6 Weeks Post Op!

      My world is drastically different! I now walk 3 to 4 miles a day and I’m constantly getting up to move my body! .

      I close my Apple Watch rings daily and about 4 to 6 days a week I double or triple them!

      I have been released to have all foods. When I reintroduce some I need to start at 1 ounce to see how “Tiny Tummy” likes it!

      I am not reintroducing sugars, coffee or junk! I did not pay close to $13,000 to fail! .

      I went to get follow up bloodwork done this week and my numbers are all in the perfect range! .

      This is my new world and I am happy it!

        Congratulations. It’s a great feeling when the weight disappears & you can start to do so much more. 😁

        I didn’t see it either but I wish I had now for both the battle on court & the ball tampering accusations flying around everywhere now.
