    Default Surgery to remove loose skin

    Has anyone had surgery to remove their loose skin? Butt Lift? Tummy Tuck? I have been looking at maybe doing a mommy makeover, but there are so many different options out there. I would love your input on what procedures you have liked the best.

    I went on line and looked at plastic surgery before and afters -- and after seeing them, I totally didn't want to do it.

    I had my sleeve June 2012 and had a tummy tuck done January 2014. 7 inches of skin removed - wish I had done lipo at the same time but the TT was enough

    I went to plastic surgery seminars at support group twice. Both times I thought I basically looked about as good as the "afters." Not to mention being sliced hip bone to hip bone for a tummy tuck did not look like fun, in fact it scared me to death. Infection, whatever. I look fine in clothes and am too old to wear a bikini anyways.

    Oh, and when you have your arms or legs done you end up with a "seam" that would be totally noticeable. (No one would see the tummy scar).

    If I was much younger I may have considered it, but for me it's a definite no.

    If I were to do anything I would like a small implant/lift of the breast and possible a butt lift/implant as well. My thighs have loose skin but the before and after pics I have seen of thigh lifts do not seem worth it. But truthfully, with strength training my boobs/chest area has firmed up quite a bit. So I may not even go for the boob implant. I am interested to see if you do get things done how it goes, prices, if you liked your results, cost, etc. Keep us posted.

    Not to be negative but....

    I know for sure, what it goes up eventually comes down. It happened to my breast, gravity is inevitable and time is the enemy.


    HW=265 lb
    SW= 251 lb
    1 Mo= 235 lb
    2 Mo= 221 lb
    3 Mo= 216 lb
    4 Mo= 212 lb

    I went for a consult here in NJ where I live. For a tummy tuck, lipo and breast lift my estimate including anesthesia and hospital costs was almost $18,000.

    That's more than I paid for my surgery here in the states! Are you going to do it?

    I have thought about having just a tummy tuck as well. I hate my spare roll, that never goes away no matter what I do. How was your recovery?

    Yes I will. I have about 10 pounds to lose. This will get me to where I was when I started my new job. I want to maintain that weight for a year before I do surgery. I huge factor will be the down time after surgery. I do not have a lot of PTO built up so I can't take too much time off of work.
