I didn't wait..I was within my 15 lbs of it and kinda wish I had waited and tried to get rid of some more of this belly fat. If there is a lot of visceral fat, it doesn't matter how much skin they take off, it WILL still be under there and you won't be flat flat. They cannot (or i should say most P/S will not as it is dangerous) do lipo in the same area that they are cutting. It can cause skin loss. I have a 90% improvement but still not as flat as I'd like to be,

Tummy Tuck (researched) is geared towards the removal of loose skin (not fat)...lipo is for the removal of fat...I am 5'10 and I went from 260lbs to 172lbs (which I am at my normal BMI) and I am still waiting (to find the right PS)...I am not in a rush cause I am HAPPY in my SKIN (loose skin too)...you stated that your friend had surgery and she's flat so why not go with her surgeon???

I did not wait till targeted weight... I weighed 219 when I went in for surgery. My doc knew I had lost 70 lbs he watched me do it after my accident and in a wheel chair non the less, so he said go ahead because he knew it would do a world of good for me. As far as the docs sometimes get nervous about blood clots. I have had two Pulmonary Embolisms after previous surgeries so they were ready for me just make sure to get up and keep moving those legs... while you are sitting flex legs and move feet around a lot and you will be alright. I think it all depends on the surgeon doing it if they will let you go before at targeted weight.

I know how you feel on this one, I was 350 pounds for a large part of my life, I was hovering between 200-205 for 6 months my body was done losing weight, I run, go to the gym, hot yoga, nothing was budging, doc said having this TT would get me losing again and indeed I have lost 10 pounds since my surgery, I am 5'9 now weigh 195-197, I am still swollen so keeps changing. I had my arms done last year before my wedding, I was 240 at the time, losing that 40 pounds made them sort of saggy again. I should have waited but I didnt want those saggy arms for my wedding. You have to decide how low you want to go and then look for a doc that will support you. They say to aim for a BMI under 30 and then most docs will do it, your body does really change, I know from 240-200 man I changed a lot, but I was really working out and building muscle too, maybe I could have waited but the frustration of being so strict and working out everything I did nothing was working, I have not been under 200 in 30 years, so for me I needed that kick to get me jumpstarted. Good luck to you, I know you will do the right thing!

gracia CHICA! GREAT POST
as others, and yours is definitely 1 post to stand out i think si...(yes)for yep. women of"color'' black,and like mi self. Latina/Dominican yea i mean some might see us as diff maybe cultural-wise.not sure but your post is astute. and i appreciate it so much.One surgeon in the FLA. area, South Miami told mi amiga, "she is fine at a tall height, and carry her weight well HEALTHY just not the big fat stomach bulge and rolls on side, love handles, and back! so he did it and she is flat n sexi in the lil waist area now,and doing well to maintain her stomach now. and again she did not get to target weight,we live in nyc/nj but she flew to jersey
cause NO OTHER SURGEON was telling her to get it done,(who she interview in our area)she is SO happy since dec. 11, and i am next!(but havin it done in my area,not fla.)
GRACIA for the queries-answers, i appreciate it so much and i am losing another few pounds this week on SPECIAK K, can't believe it work lol and fruit fish
chicken breast.and LOTS of water milk,yep,and a diet supplement for FAT-BURNING actually working but no way i m losing 75 more pounds! that is mi target weight nera 150-165 standing 5'9, BUT THAT IS OK.
i will get there AFTER TUMMY TUCK and still keep mi curves,workin out eating right.

thx everyone! hoping i get to have it done still the
end of April,it not definitely MAY no doubt before the
start of summer,gracia !

god speed to all the SEXI FLAT CERTIFED STOMACHS of 2012!

I think its also prudent to point out that we are all built differently in terms of frame size and what may be culturaly attractive. As a black woman, curvier isn't really considered a bad thing. Now there is certainly a line that can be crossed when one is unhealthy but to suggest that just because someone is a certain height they should weigh a certain weight is silly. How your weight is distributed and how you carry it certainly matters. And again more importantly if you are healthy. I've dieted and gotten down to 150 lbs and I am 5'8. But on my frame it did not look healthy! I looked sickly! 175 is ideal for me and I think figuring out what looks best on you and is healthy is most important!!! Keep me posted. I will def follow your journey!

I guess it depends on where you carry your weight. Never would I have guessed you weighed what you do. There are several ladies having their procedure and losing 30 lbs or more after because of increased desire to exercise and loss or reduction of appetite. That weight loss doesn't seem to effect their result, particularly if active. If it's safe and you want to do it, do it.

Hi Redhead,
I live in Florida and I am 5'9 and 190lbs and my surgery is on April 12th. I also carry most of my weight in my mid-section and upper thighs. I look my best when I am about 165-170lbs, but after then third kid the weight won't budge even with going to the gym 3-4 days a week for 45 minutes and using weight watchers to track eating habits. So I decided that it was time to just do it.
My PS didn't even mention losing weight when I went for my consultation or pre-op appointment. As a matter of fact I didn't even see a scale in his office. :) I will keep my profile updated on how everything goes. I hope to get a few more pre-op pictures posted soon.
