Sonobello or No Sonobello

Recommended Posts

Although I have some time before I can actually have any contouring done, I think about it constantly.

I originally wanted to go with a mommy makeover, but the thought of surgery recovery again is not very appealing.

Does any one have any experience or know anyone who has any experience with using Sonobello after weight-loss surgery?

Any advice would be helpful.

A lot will depend on how much loose skin you have. But really the only way to get rid of skin that has been stretched out is to have it surgically removed. Sorry. ☹️

Depending on your age & genetics you may have some retraction of your loose skin but unless you’re young, with good skin elasticity & weren’t at your higher weight for a prolonged period of time, it won’t be a noticeable bounce back.

Radio therapy tends to have only short term benefits around stimulating collagen growth. I had several weekly sessions (12 in a package deal) on my face & neck. Did it tighten my skin? No. Did it reduce any sagginess? No. Did it smooth & even out texture? Yes. Was the treatment & accompanying facial soothing? Yes.

But you can always give it a go. You may see more benefit then I did.

I had Neve heard of this so was curious and looked it up. I would be really interested in hearing any results from others. When I looked it up it compared it to CoolSculpting and it came out with a better result. However I have to say I spent €1800 on a CoolSculpting session for my hips and it did ABSOLUTELY NOTHING. NOT ONE THING. €1800 flushed down the toilet.

I did have a breast reduction (one of the best decisions EVER!). And a Tummy Tuck which I have not been so happy with. Huge scar was left, and the recovery time was so long that I put on 5-6 lbs because I couldn't work out. Happy the skin in gone but in my case I probably could have lived with it. A personal choice for all of us.
Good luck and let us know what you decide.

      tl:dr at bottom,
      I could use some advice. I went to see my dietician today (not a bariatric surgery dietician, I can explain why I am seeing her if you want to know). She knows I am going to have weight loss surgery as long as I hit the goal weight my insurance told me I need to be at. I have to be at the goal weight by June 24, 2023, in order for my insurance to pay for my surgery.
      I had a weigh in the doctor's office a couple of days ago and weighed 301, my scale at home said 302. However, on the same day, the scale at a friend's house said 313. 
      I knew I had this Dietician appointment two days later and I knew she would weigh me. I continued to weigh myself at home (after getting new batteries) and I was at 302 then 299 and today at home I weighed 303, right before my appointment, when I got to her office I was weighed and it said 313.
      I am concerned about what to believe since the doctor's office and my scale show similar numbers. I also bought a new scale today and it said 313. 
      The Dietician told me I needed to eat more protein, which honestly I struggle with. she said I needed 150 grams!!  I said are you kidding? that seems like a lot.  She used my weight to come up with this number. 
      Should I really be trying to eat enough protein for a 300-lb person or should I be eating protein for a goal-weight person (mine is 170)?   
      also, my clothing is loose like I lost the 20 lbs mine and the doctor's scale shows, and not 10 lbs like everyone else's scale shows. Also, I have always naturally been more muscular even when I was 120 lbs and did not eat any protein aside from what is in plants. 
      tl:dr- should I be eating enough protein to support a 300lb person or should I be eating protein for a "normal" sized person? AND should I trust the Doctors scale more so than the Dietician's scale?

        I would love to be your accountability partner. I had the sleeve in 2021, so maybe I can give you some insights.

        Please message me back, looking forward to hearing from you!
