Sooooo.

I'm around 70-ish lbs from my goal weight and I've already scheduled a Tummy Tuck and Lipo for February '22. I know it's early in my journey to do so (I'm only 9 months post-op). But, I can't stand the flapping and hanging.

I figure, since I haven't had kids yet, that any more loose skin I develop would be a great starting point for a pregnant belly a few years down the line (thats how it works right?? Like reinflating a balloon??). Or, this will just be my excuse to get a mini tummy tuck and an boob lift.

Anyone else have an "early" surgery? How did your results fare after losing more weight? Regrets?

So in Feb ‘22 you will be 13 months post op.

i had my TT at 13 months post op too, but I was already at goal (well, technically below goal) at the time. Though I did schedule it months before (at 7 months post op)

i *think* any loose skin you encounter after the Tummy Tuck will be minimal (if at all) as i would assume you will be closer to goal by then? What did your surgeon say?

P.S. I’m 2 years post TT now and my tum is still lovely, lol. But my weight has been pretty stable since though…

Good luck, and can’t wait to see ur results (if u choose to share, that is)! ❤️

Wow nice work! I'm such a slow loser :(. My surgeon prefers that I'm within 10-15lbs of my goal because he anticipates that post skin removal and Lipo that will place me at or slightly below goal. I told him that's lofty considering my rate of weightloss but I'm intensifying my health and fitness plan to get as close as humanly possible.

Thats good to hear! I have a big head lol so my goal is higher than most at my height but its all good. I'm thinking by February I'll be 20-ish lbs away.

Some people do drop a lot more pounds after plastics, especially if there is still some stubborn fat deposits under the skin (or just lots of leftover skin in general for those who had massive amounts of weight loss).

My surgeon said he removed a grand total of 400g of “material” from me, which is just shy of 1 lb (and i had a Tummy Tuck, arm lift AND breast lift!). But despite the minimal weight difference, the VISUAL changes were significant (well, at least to me, lol)

      Hello everyone.. I had my surgery on Sept 30th 2021.. and it has been an horrible experience to me. I can't hold down fluids or soft food. so much mucus is coming up!! and I'm spitting all day. I'm so sad over this journey. is anyone having this same issue? if so, what are you doing about it.

      Tomorrow is the big day! Getting sleeved in the morning and possibly spending a dark and stormy night in the hospital after. I'm actually excited about that because rain on wedding days and birthdays is considered a sign of good luck- so wouldn't a commitment of re-birth qualify as well?
      Can't wait to see y'all on the other side!

      Hope everyone's doing ok so far.
      Incidence numbers are on the raise again and hospitals need to treat more COVID patients again. Looking with some kind of dread towards autumn/winter season.

        I am post op day 2 now , you’re there pretty much the whole day. They send you home with a lot of support. Are you local to Birmingham and driving in for the surgery or staying at a hotel in the area?

      Doing to much protein can make you gain weight? Because I gain 3 pound one day and I’m so frustrated 😭🥺 I did a hard work to be in 220 😭😭
