Anyone willing...



Recommended Posts

Is anyone willing to share before and after pictures before plastics. I'm worried about saggy skin and what I'm willing to live with. I know everyone is different and there are many factors at play. Thanks

You are asking a very sensitive question and I believe you need to share your sensitive information too. If you are unwilling then I wouldn't

I've never shared my photos of what the skin actually looked like, but I can tell you that most of us can easily hide the loose skin in clothes. I've had extensive plastic surgery (three of them, to be exact), but this is what I looked like BEFORE I had plastic surgery. See any loose skin? I promise you that it's there - this was after losing over 200 lbs, so I had a TON of it. But as you can see, it's not noticeable at all in clothes. I just tucked the stomach skin into jeans or "tummy control" leggings and wore slightly oversized, long-ish tops. Plus 3/4 length or longer sleeves to cover my batwing arms. No one could see my excess skin (except for my husband and doctor, of course...)

you can probably find before/after pictures (with private parts covered) if you look at the Web sites of plastic surgeons

My pre and post PS pics. I had
my VSG in Aug 2019. Tummy Tuck, breast lift & augmentation, and arm lift in Jan 2021 after losing 146 lbs. I’m so glad I did!

I had a mommy makeover (tummy tuck and breast lift w/o implants then a posterior back lift and fat transfer to buttocks)

What are you referring to? I'm still pre-op. I'm fat. Unhappy. And nervous. CW 250. My BMI is 40. I have sleep apnea, high cholesterol, arthritis, and fibromyalgia. Any other sensitive information you would like to know?
At any rate, people have the choice to respond. I'm not making them do anything.

Great job. Thanks for sharing. Of the whole bariatric experience, saggy skin scares me. I know plastics is an option, but...

Lindsay, I knew PS was in my future when I decided to have WLS, lol.

Thank you all for sharing these personal photos, they are so motivational to others. I recently hit the 100 lbs lost mark and I am already think about my next move. The deflated boobs and sagging arms are a lot- I do not hate it but I want to tighten up as soon as possible.

I will give it a year but I want to start my search now. I would like to be around 135-140 when I have PS. I have about 25 lbs to go which I expect to hit around 8-9 months out. I've been sticking to my plan like glue and will continue to do so until I hit the one year mark- July 6, 2024!

The lower body lift scares me so much, but it is a must. I've been combing the forum for any tips. I hate being in pain!!!! I will definitely post when going through PS.

Thanks for sharing. In a little over a week I'll undergo a 360 with a breast lift and implants and these are very encouraging. I admit to being afraid of the pain too, but everyone has said that it's worth it. I figure if they could do it, so can I.

      Well, tomorrow I go in for an impromptu hiatal hernia repair after ending up in the ER over the weekend because I couldn't get food down and water was moving at a trickle... I've been having these symptoms on and off for a few weeks but Sunday was the worst by far and came with chest pain and trouble breathing. The ER PA thinks it is just esophagitis and that the surgeon and radiologist are wrong. But the bariatric surgeon swears it is a hernia, possibly a sliding one based on my symptoms. So he fit me into his schedule this week to repair it! I hope he's right and this sorts it out. He's going to do a scope afterwards to be sure there is nothing wrong with the esophagus. Here's hoping it all goes well!!

      Having gall bladder surgery in a few days and I so hope the recovery is easier than the one from the modified DS! I could use a bit of luck/pep talk for a change. I'm starting to be able to walk around without experiencing dizziness, but it would be great if the random pain in my chest and abdomen would go away!!

      Today was rough...
      I've been experiencing a headache all day today that just won't go away. I'm thinking it's now progressing into a migraine. Does anyone else get headaches from taking vitamin B12? I did some research and learned that usually a lack of B12 causes headaches. But I've noticed when I take it, I have reoccurring headaches. 😫
