I'm sorry I'm don't have answers, as I'm also pre-op, but want to follow this discussion.

You made me check my cellulite out but have to admit I couldn’t really see any. It’s all hidden by my crepey, wrinkly, droopy skin. LOL! I didn’t have any varicose veins but the little spider veins on my lower legs are still there. Damn!

My cellulite mostly disappeared but I didn't have much. I mostly had compact and very firm fat.

My varicose veins and spider veins, which are hereditary, shrank to very thin and don't feel tender/sore anymore. But they are still there although very hard to see unless I'm really looking.

Unfortunately I didn't document this aspect with photos 😩

Hi!

Haha, me too!

So here is my assessment:

Cellulite: I had some on my lower butt, upper back thighs, and inner thighs. After the weight loss, my butt no longer has that dimply look, but it is still saggy. It looks more wrinkly/deflated than cellulite-y. Same for the back and inner thighs, but to a lesser degree. They don’t look so very wrinkly, but they do look “soft”.

I didn’t have any varicose veins, but I did have a VERY blue-y/purple-y spider vein about the size of a quarter on my thigh. It’s still there but not as vibrant blue.

Finally, you didn’t ask, but I can also report on my stretch marks. I had stretch marks on my upper boobs, hips and the backs of my calves. The boob marks have significantly decreased (i see some but they are not as noticeable as before) My hip marks are gone...BUT, I had a Tummy Tuck so that would explain that. The stretch marks at the backs of the calves though, are also gone (and I didn’t have any work done there like the TT, so that is worth noting). Its weird to me that they are gone cuz i always thought those things were permanent. Even weirder that I just noticed this today.

🤷🏻‍♀️

Thank you to everyone for your responses! I really appreciate it.

I have pretty bad cellulite in my legs and even worse varicose veins. These may need to get looked at cosmetically once this whole process is done.
