My journey started in December 2001, my then 4 year old son looked at me before a shower and said, "Mommy, you're fat." I knew I was heavy, but never wanted to really see it. I looked in the mirror and it hit me. OMG, I really am FAT! I am 5'3" and at that point I weighed 199 lbs. I tried... READ MORE

After losing 100+ pounds from the vertical sleeve gastrectomy, I was left with large amounts of excess skin. I had a full apron, breasts with no tissue aside from loose, sagging skin that fell nearly to my belly button and a butt that wouldn't stand up to any jeans without some serious spanx... READ MORE

It's been over 2 years since having a sleeve gastrectomy and more than a year having maintained over a 100 lb. weight loss. No amount of exercise has helped to reduce the amount of saggy skin around my stomach, buttocks and upper thighs. After consulting with 3 surgeons, all 3 recommended a... READ MORE

First, I found this site while researching for my own answers. I am scared and very nervous about my upcoming procedure. I have chosen to get a 360 circumferential body lift. I have not been out of the 200's since I was about 15 yrs old and quite frankly I am tired of not being able to see my... READ MORE

Through diet changes (weight watchers and cleaning eating) and lots of exercise, I lost around 110lbs. As someone who had been overweight/obese since childhood, I knew excess skin would be an issue for me. Although, I was told by many people to give it time and exercise, the reality was such...

When you are looking for the BEST cosmetic surgeon in New York City, then—without a doubt—select Dr. Khuthaila!! She is an absolute artist and a perfectionist, while simultaneously so kind-hearted and genuine that you feel 100% confident trusting her with your body. When I was... READ MORE

I have just turned 50 and over the past 2 years lost 42kg (and still losing albeit very slowly). I've always hated my arms and spare tyre around the middle but they have become more obvious and jiggly now I've lost the weight. I dropped from 111kg to 69kg through strict diet and re discovering... READ MORE

Wow, where to start. Its been a long journey to my present and upcoming procedure. It started in 2005 with the gastric-by-pass and weighing in at 330 pounds. So over the next nine years I maintained my weight for the most part at 200 pounds, fluctuating once when I went back to college back to... READ MORE

Ok so this review is going to be long, and I’m going to break it up into a few parts: Why I got surgery, my research for a doc and procedure, preparing for surgery, day of, recovery, and my body now. I’m in my 30s and have struggled with my weight for my entire life. I've gained and lost... READ MORE

1 week away from a lifelong dream!! 35 yrs, mother of 2. After battling obesity/overweight issues since middle school, and after 2 pregnancies, I finally won the battle-losing the weight through healthy diet & exercise! (my heaviest being a size 16-18). However, my problematic lower body & tummy... READ MORE

I worked really hard to lose weight using Take Shape for Life and in clothing, I looked fine. But underneath my clothes, I wasn't happy with what I saw. I had also carried most of my weight in my hips and thighs and it had gotten very uncomfortable sitting. I had to redistribute the excess skin... READ MORE

I am a 44yr old with 2 children. Over the past 4 years I have lost 115 lbs. I am very happy with my accomplishment; however, I have lots of excess skin that won't go away. I have not shared my upcoming surgery with many people as they may not understand. Everyone praises me for how far I... READ MORE

Hello ladies, I have been considering getting my tummy in order for about 3 yrs now. I first started my search in 2011 and Dr. Chiaramonte was the first surgeon I had a consult with. Unfortunately my husband and I couldn't afford financing at the time. So 3 years later, I am ready and... READ MORE

My worst nightmare was doing surgery with Dr. Joseph Capella. I know there are many good reviews of Capella but do not know whether they are paid or are really his patients but I do not recommend it as a plastic surgeon. First consultation showed me the before and after pictures of surgeries... READ MORE

I was slender until my abusive marriage when I gained a tremendous amount of weight. I've kept it off for 14 years and have been carrying around this excess skin. Finally will rid of this constant reminder of the torture. So scared and nervous though. I chose Dr. Ortega because he has over 25... READ MORE

I had always had my problems with weight. When I was 18 years-old I was a record 180kg and was continuing my path to death-row. I made the life and death decision to have lap-band surgery in 2006 and it changed my life and my lifestyle. I spent 8 1/2 years losing 85kg but had loose skin and man... READ MORE

After maintaining 115 lb weight loss for almost 3 years, I have the opportunity to afford to get plastics thanks to my husband. I have chosen to get a Lower Body Lift and will need to get my thighs done in the future. I did a couple of virtual consultations and emailed and/or spoke with those... READ MORE

Which removes lateral breast tissue and the upper back... READ MORE

I cannot put into words how pleased I am with my procedure. I am 52 years old, an athlete and depend on my body not only to look good, but also to perform. I'm not going to lie; the recuperation period was painful. But from the very first day when I looked at myself in the mirror, I knew it... READ MORE
