During high school I lost about 130 lbs through diet and exercise and was left with some excess skin around my waist as well as on my chest. I tried a bunch of different things and waited about a year and a half hoping that the skin would shrink back on it's own but of course it didn't. In... READ MORE

I had talked to Dr. Timothy Katzen numours of times & he was very reassuring that he could give me a good outcome. Even though I had some MAJOR complications (which was NOT his fault), He saws & still is there even today!!! I am going to be going back to Dr. Katzen hopefully sometime this Spring... READ MORE

I woke up one morning and looked at myself in the mirror and thought I bet if all this skin wasn't on my stomach I may actually see results from the gym. That day I decided its time to talk to Dr Calobrace about getting something done. After speaking with him I realized why I was so miserable... READ MORE

I had gastric bypass surgery in 2008 I in Tijuana MX by Dr Liza Pompa, and highly recommend her she owns the Limarp Surgery Unit. After my surgery I lost so much weight that I had loose skin that I hated to look at, so I decided to have a body lift. I went back to Mexico and had Dr Carlos... READ MORE

I was obese and lost over 100 pounds and had a lot of excess skin hanging from both of my thighs and waist, as well as other areas of my body. I had other surgical procedures done by two different doctors in Albuquerque, New Mexico but was not pleased with the results and decided that I needed... READ MORE

I had an arm lift and upper body lift done on December 10th. My surgeon used glue instead of steristrips. I have had some complications with blood flow which is causing necrotic or dead skin on the incision line on my back. I'm unsure of what to look for in order to know if I'm healing... READ MORE

I few in for the surgery (5-1/2 hour flight) and stayed at a recovery center for 3 nights. That was the best move ever! The nurses there took care of the IV, drain & catheter readings, meals (had to get that protein), helping me get up and walk and elevating my feet. After being released from... READ MORE

The Right Doctor I choose Dr. Beck because of his excellent bedside manner, depth of experience and strong desire for the best outcome for his patients (I lost 100+ pounds). He was the first surgeon that I consulted with and I had appointments with two others in the next four weeks. After... READ MORE

When I embarked on my weight-loss journey a year and 2 months ago, excess skin was something that continued to cling on my mind as the weight was coming off. Weight Loss is something that we can control, but the excess skin is something that, unfortunately, we do not have control over. As I... READ MORE

I chose Dr. LoMonaco because he is simply THE BEST! There are not enough words to describe his skill, care, talent, and bedside manner. I am 7 years post-Gastric bypass, and had the 1st phase of excess skin removal in July of 2013. This included a lower body lift, breast lift, and breast... READ MORE

I had WLS in 2003 and after 140 pounds of weight loss I had Dr. Quiroz at Cosmed do a lower body lift and breast lift. The results were amazing, so much better than I could have ever imagined. The facility is a 1st class operation; the staff is outstanding and very professional. I highly... READ MORE

Since I have had 2 procedures I am posting on both topics. The titles are the same for both and the other blog is under Arm Lift. Also, on my arm blog I have before and some arm after pictures. I had my lower body lift 13 days ago. Briefly, I lost a lot of weight slowly and steadily for no... READ MORE

I'm a 35 year old mum to a 3 and 5 year old. After losing around 40kg at 19 years old through diet and exercise and then my 2 pregnancies I had considerable loose skin on my abdomen, extending to my flanks. I also had tubular shaped breasts with asymmetry. It has only been around 7 weeks and I'm... READ MORE

I am 36 yo 5' 2 and 136lbs and need to be bikini ready by the summer. I have considered plastic surgery ever since I started my weight loss journey two years ago Aug 31 2011. I have lost 122lbs with the aide of gastric bypass and have maintained my weight loss for the last year. I went on... READ MORE

I had an upper body lift with Dr. Sholar in Evansville Indiana. This included a breast lift, brachioplasty (arm lift), and bra line back lift. Not one of my procedures turned out well. My breasts were droopy and my nipples pointed down. My arms became infected and I was left with awful scars... READ MORE

I found reviews and personal stories on this site to be instrumental to my decision making, so I am taking a deep breath and adding mine! Please bear with me whilst I ramble through my story. I am 11 days post op currently. I am 5'3'' and my highest weight was 229 pounds. I've lost weight... READ MORE

I've lost (almost) 150 pounds, and I'll lose another 10-15 plus before surgery. I've already had a panniculectomy, brachioplasty and lipo. I've met the best plastic surgeons in Nor Cal. As wonderful and amazing as they are, they don't specialize in reconstructing women after massive weight loss.... READ MORE

I had a gastric bypass 5 years ago which helped me lose 169 pounds.They cut off 12 pounds of extra skin total. Pain- very intense, but worth it. Needed help bathing, standing, getting up for 2 weeks. 6 weeks until back to life 100%. I needed and used all of my pain meds. Stayed in the... READ MORE
