I have always been skinny, I was really skinny before I got pregnant. Then when I was pregnant I ballooned up to 220 lbs & at 5'2" I was over weight. I wasn't happy with being that big so after I got the ok from my OBGYN to start working out, I did. But now I have a lot of loose skin. I hope I... READ MORE

I recently just passed my six week mark post op from a lower body lift, and chest lipo. This was a big step for me, first time for any surgery! Just a little history, I had lost over 110 pounds, from weighing 305 lbs to 195 lbs on the day of surgery. I had been exercising, running, eating... READ MORE

I have been overweight my entire adult life. In 2013 I had the gastric sleeve and lost 95# within 6 months. I was thrilled with my weight loss, but not thrilled with the extra skin that was left hanging on my body. Six months ago I met Dr. Peter Fisher and without hesitation had a breast lift... READ MORE

Wow, where do I start. I'm so excited to start the journey to improve the appearance of my body after MWL. I had a RNY gastric bypass in May of 2001 and planned to do the necessary body surgeries but didn't feel they were ready for prime time in the mid 2000's after several consultations. Life...

I have wanted this for well over 10 years. I had a RNY gastric bypass in July 2002. My beginning weight was 262 pounds. I have lost 130 (or so) pounds since then and kept it off. In the meantime, I had two more children, which kept me from having a body lift. After two more kids, I REALLY needed... READ MORE

I always knew I would do some type of surgery to get rid of the stretch marks, then decided the LBL would be the best procedure for me. I am a week out so the complete verdict is out. So far I am very pleased, I go tomorrow for my first post op and hoping the drains will come out. I will post... READ MORE

I am a 33 year old woman who has lost 160 pounds. I am 5'10" tall and currently weigh 170 pounds. I have been married a little over a year, and have never and will never have kids. I have been researching surgeries to correct my loose, saggy skin since my weight loss stabilized in the fall of... READ MORE

After losing all of the baby weight (and then some) I loved my body. I felt fit, clothes looked great, but there was this band of skin around my stomach that just would not go away no matter how much weight I lost. After keeping my weight down for two years I met with trainers who all told me... READ MORE

5'3 165 pounds- Lost over 130 pounds years ago (diet & exercise) and kept it off. Finally scheduled a consultation with a highly recommended PS in Corpus Christi, Dr. Vijay Bindingnavele. I don't expect a super model body, just want to lift all this saggy skin. I can't seem to budge from this... READ MORE

After loosing 150 lbs and keeping it off for 2 years I knew it was time to get the excess skin removed from my body that was bothering me so much. I am very active and the skin was always in my way, bothering me, making me very uncomfortable and even self conscious never being able to wear a... READ MORE

I lost 70kg over 2 years through diet and excercise and I was left with a lot of excess skin, I had my first procedure done in September 2014 an extended brachioplasty and I had the lower bodylift done in March 2015. I developed a seroma about 3 weeks post surgery which was drained and I still... READ MORE

As might be expected after losing over 50% of your body weight you end up looking like an empty potato sack. I was initially worried about finding a doctor who would take the time to really see what I needed to make my body look like a normal humans body. Luckily, those worries were laid to rest...

I have been on real self for quite some time before I scheduled my surgeries. Originally, I had no plans of sharing my experience on here since there were so many who do. But I find that I experienced some things that I have not heard mentioned (or found mentioned) and believe it would be... READ MORE

I began as an obese child. Eating whatever I wanted when I wanted it. Around the age of 13 I started nothing my nipples were extremely puffy and swollen. I didn't realize until about a year ago, that this was gynecomastia. At my highest weight(2004) I was 230 lbs. then a year late dropped to... READ MORE

So far Dr Ratcliff has been great! answered all my questions and took his time w me in the mirror of "issues" I was a little annoyed with the nurse who asked me twice who I was because you thought I didn't look like I needed anything done. Maybe I would "surprise" her when Dr came in for consult... READ MORE

My story--I have a large extended family and we are all close to each other. We had been very lucky in that no one had any major health issues. Then in December 2009 my aunt Mary, who was also my godmother, was diagnosed with lung cancer. In November 2010 my Mom was diagnosed with breast cancer.... READ MORE
