i called in to dr j's office yesterday because i had some questions & was told that i will definitely have extra skin. my lower abdomen is big & i've had 2 c-sections. it will be an extra 4 grand to get the extra skin removed & i just don't think i'll have it, even if i do i don't wanna spend $15,000 0n surgery. i have 2 children & am going trhough a divorce, i feel like it's a bit irresponsible. i could really use some support. i think i'm willing to deal with the extra skin & go in later to have it removed, but i was told htat if i come in at a diffeen ime, it'll be more because i'll have to pay for the anestesia & surgery center & all that stuff again, plus,  the prices go up in a month. i also considered not gettin my butt :-( which would be very disappointing, but that way i can get the lipo, get the extra skin removed & later on down the line get the butt when i can afford it. i'm so torn. i would love to hear from anyone who has had to chose between the two or has had experience with extra skin, pics would be great! thanks for the suppor realself. hope to get tons of feedback!

Hi, I also was told by my surgeon that if he does lipo i will have hanging skin. I don't know what to do, the extra money is a factor, but also I hate that long ugly scar that you get with a tummy tuck. I'm wondering if the lipo of my back and my BBL will make the lower half of my tummy less noticeable. As it is I'm 5'3 and 150lbs. So confused.

I was in that same place, wondering & trying to decide what would work & what was more important, if you read my other post "any bbw's getting bbl" you'll see that I was all over the place. smh I lost so much sleep from stressin over it. I was sick of all dat stressin so I decided to go to Yily in the D.R. not really comfortable with the decision, but at least then I can get my round butt & flat stomach & not have to worry bout choosin between the 2. It was a tough decision & I'm still not 100% sure it's what I wanna do, but it puts my mind @ ease FOR NOW lol.

Girl I'm sure you will be happy with the results! Don't second guess yourself and stress anymore. Whatever we do will definitely be better than our "before". I think I'm just gonna do the lipo and hope for the best. lol

So I've decided to go ahead & get the skin removed, I learned today that it's a mini tuck. It's bittersweet for me because of course i'm SUPER excited about the new body i'll have, but on the other hand I'm having a really hard time excepting the fact that i'm spending $15,000 dollars on surgery. smh. I'm seriously considering switching to dr yily because her price is so much less & she's credible. I'm going to continue to research yily & get her contact info to call & see if she works on larger women. I think if I can get everything I want at a lower price or at least for 11g's, which is what I had my mind set on spending, then I would be excited again. Guess I just gotta wait & see. I'm bout to do some digging on dr yily, will def let you all know what I find!

Hi there, welcome!

I haven't had this procedure myself, but I have read that a good portion of BBL patients also have a Tummy Tuck. Maybe this is the extra skin he was speaking of?

As you mentioned, you could always have the skin removed at a later date, once you were financially able.

I think I will wait & have the skin removed once I can afford it, that'll be about 18mths, maybe 2 yrs, but hopefully my butt will be so amazing it'll make up for how unattractive the extra skin will be. lol A tummy tuck isn't out of the question either, I would love to have wash board flat abs lol Anyhow, thanks for your input, I really appreciate it!

No problem at all. If your booty turns out really well, which I'm sure it will, you can always buy some spanx to hold your tummy in until you can afford the surgery!
