I had a lower body lift surgery in March they were to of removed 6.5 pounds of skin.I wearing a size 6-8 before the surgery. Now im in a size 14-16.It appears to me all my weight has weight to my butt & hips. Also my hips feel hard to me. I use to also weight in the low 160's.Now I have a hard time keeping under 170. My diet and exercise is all the same thing. My surgeon kind of makes me feel dumb for asking and like I gained all this weight over night. can weight shift? is this all permeant?
Results after Lower Body Lifting?
Thank you for the question.
There are many different “issues” that you bring up; to complex to handle appropriately with an online consultation. You may want to see your internist and undergo a medical workup to evaluate the weight gain situation, since your diet and exercise regimen has not changed.
You should also follow-up with your plastic surgeon; if you feel that he/she remains condescending then a second opinion may be helpful.
