Whaaaaaaaat? Again?!?!? That's right πŸ˜…

I decided to once again go ahead and (silently) more have plastics done. This time more skin removal with a twist. I'm very happy with the results so far. But i am just a few days post op

Procedures: Posterior back lift + Lipo + fat transfer

Where: Miami (Same surgeon)

Why: The same reasons as before... I wanted/needed more work completed

When: May 28, 2020

With all that's happening in the world right now, I wasn't certain I should create this post but I will try to update this thread regularly

Since this summer is probably going to be *complicated* and I didn't think i would get to fully enjoy it, I decided to finish (for now) my plastics journey.

Initially i lost weight during quarantine by following a few exercise routines. Muscle tone was improving but looking in the mirror i was not satisfied with how my skin was laying on my body. I realized i didn't need to be thinner but tighter and after major weightloss or WLS, major skin tightening is nearly impossible to do with surgical intervention.

I decided i also want a fuller rounder behind after all to look more balanced. I decided that i NEEDED a BBL. So I set on the very hard πŸ˜‚path to gain about 10-15 lbs.

My surgeon reminded me of our earlier conversations about mt skin laxity and refused to give me just a BBL without skin lifting /removal. He even warned me that i didn't even have enough choice fat (abdominal stubborn fat) for it anyway, My problem was excess thick skin πŸ˜’

We moved ahead with the back lift with some minor fat transfer and he was right. My results are transformative. I need to stay at my higher weight for a few months in order to allow the fat that was transfered an opportunity to live and grow. But i honestly look better now that 15lbs ago and my clothes still all fit the same, mostly. Apparently loose skin is a drag on your clothes sizing.

OMG Thank you 😍

I started saying i wanted plastics 2 yrs ago and had to clue/plan where to start. I'm so happy so many others helped with questions and those that joined me and paved the way in our Sophomoric class like @Sophie7713 @sillykitty @ms.sss @rs @mousecat88

      How's everyone doing? I'm still fighting insurance company over plastics.
      Many changes at work are coming up. It's very stressful but there are also some opportunities involved, both in regards to personal development and promotion.
