I'll heard some say that you won't have a belly button after a panniculectomy. I want a belly button! I know underpants can cover up the scar, but not having a belly button would have people doing a double take at a pool. I have a heavy, kangaroo pouch that is my main concern. I can never...

I had my first consultation on August 18, the office didn't get my paperwork submitted until October 22, found out it was approved by insurance on 10/29/15. Very nervous and excited all at once, at this point I don't know if she is planning on doing the FDL Panni or not (I need it but don't know... READ MORE

I had gastric bypass surgery in 2011. It resulted in weightloss of 150 pounds. My belly had bothered my for a really long time and after my last child in 2014 I decided it was time to say farewell to the excess skin. I had 3 kids and I was just not happy with my appearance at all. I feel so much... READ MORE

I was overweight all of my life. In 2010, I made lifestyle changes and lost 80 lbs over 1.5-2 years and I've kept most of it off. In 2014, I had a breast reduction (covered by insurance). In May of this year, I had a 20 year dream come true and had a brachioplasty (arm lift), not covered by... READ MORE

I had lost 150+ pounds after the birth of my twins and was suffering from excess skin of the abdomen. So December last year I went in to have a full tummy tuck, a week after I realized things still were not okay. I had excess sagging skin to my abdomen almost immediately. Since last year he...

After losing so much weight and having c-sections... I really was not happy with the tremendous amount of hanging skin on my breast, torso and inner thighs... It did not take me long to decide that dr. Adler would be my doctor. He was wonderful from day 1! I'm 8 days out post op and could not be... READ MORE

I'm so excited that I had my consultation with Dr. James Edwards from the Providence Medical Group today for a panniculectomy. He was fantastic and I look forward to working with him. He has great reviews on here. It's been a rocky road getting to this point but so happy to have made it. I... READ MORE

I'm currently 2 months out of having a panniculectomy and I'm thrilled with the results! Best choice to make, my Doctore did an amazing job, I would recommend Dr Nandagopal to anyone looking to have this procedure done, he truly cares for his patients and his work is beautiful. My scar is... READ MORE

Well, I had lived with numerous infections for 7.5 years and the humiliation of not being able to even wear underwear because they rolled under my panus. I also went thru a bottle a week of body powder. When I would go up and down stairs the panus would flap against my legs and when being... READ MORE

Feeling a little scared and excited if that's possible!! I have 16 days before surgery!!!! I've been wanting to have this done for six years but my husband wasn't on board, finally he says yes!!!!! Had my first consultation with Dr Basner who was AWESOME AMAZING!!!! So let the countdown... READ MORE

I am 22, 5'5" and currently weigh 164 lbs after losing 130 lbs (my starting weight was 290+ lbs). My surgery is booked for June 05 2015. It will remove the excess skin apron/pannus that hangs on my stomach. The Medical Services Plan (MSP) is covering this procedure, as it is considered a... READ MORE

Ever since high school I've I always had a gut. Five kids later my stomach has lost its elasticity. At one point I weighed 270 pounds and got down to 188 pounds. Currently I'm back at 245 pounds and I also developed a skin condition called hidradenitis suppurativa. It's very painful and... READ MORE

After five children, I had gained weight in my lower midsection. I also had a significant incisional hernia and two cesarean sections. My surgeon recommended Dr. Castle as a cosmetic partner in my hernia surgery. I had over eight pounds of skin and tissue removed and a mesh repair for the hernia... READ MORE

I went into the office today for a consult. I thought dr mitts and his staff were professional and kind. He answered all my questions, and I didn't feel like he was rushing through anything. When we were done with the consult he shook my hand. It's so nice to see another dr in Bakersfield you... READ MORE

So here's me...Im a 30 year old female. I have always had somewhat of a weight issue but throughout high school I was very athletic, played basketball, ran track, etc. In my early 20s I experienced significant weight gain, due partially to depression partially my (not so fantastic) diet habits...

I don't see many reviews from the over 60 group, so I thought I'd chime in. I had a gastric bypass procedure 4 years ago (at age 64). I lost 100 lbs in 10 months. I have only gained 15 lbs back and I'm working to take that off. I'm on Medicare so they will only cover a panniculectomy, but... READ MORE
