Male Tummy Tuck and Breast Reduction - Beverly Hills, CA

I'm 25 yrs old and live in Las Vegas. So about 6...

I'm 25 yrs old and live in Las Vegas. So about 6 and a half years ago I weighted 453 lbs. I decided it was time to lose the weight, so at the age of 19 I decided to get the Lap-Band surgery. In the beginning the weight was just melting off of me. I got down to about 260 lbs and stopped losing weight. At that time I was pretty comfortable with that weight. The problem was that I didn't really change my eating habits, so the numbers on the scale started to inch up little by little. I got back up to 285 lbs and realized that this was not working anymore so I should probably do something about it. So I joined a gym and got a personal trainer. Now in the beginning I still didn't change my eating habits, so the weight wasn't really coming off. So to try to make the story short, I changed my eating routine and now I weigh a healthy 200 lbs. So in total I have lost 253 lbs.

So because I had lost so much weight, I had all of this loose skin. I had to wait a while before I had the funds to get this surgery. So when I finally had the money for this surgery I was very excited and scheduled the surgery for April 9, 2013. The surgery was scheduled for 7 am but I had to arrive by 6 to fill out paper work and stuff. While the surgeon was taking pictures I did end up fainting, but that could have been because I was dehydrated. When I was OK for them to finish with the pictures they took me into the OR, gave me a cocktail, and I was out like a light. The surgery lasted for 7 hrs, but it went very well. The surgeon had me stay at an aftercare facility for one night. The recovery process has been a breeze. I didn't really have any pain. I maybe only use 3 or 4 pain pills. I went back to the surgeon the next day and he said it looked like I had been 2 weeks post op when it was only 24 hrs. I was very surprised when he said that. The day after that I was already out about doing errands. It did take about 2 weeks to get rid of all 4 of my drains(2 in chest and 2 for abdomen). Not sure what else I can say other than I am feeling great and I am very happy with the results!!

Like I said before, you look like a new man. I am so proud of you, and I am sure your family is too. I had lap band too.. I have lost a lot but am stuck, so let me ask you, I need to get off another 40 pounds maybe more. What about your diet did you change? Maybe you can clue me in to what I am doing wrong. Anyway you look great, I give you 5 stars like you gave your doctor. Congrats.

Thank you so much for your kind words! My family is very proud of me. Congratulations on your weight loss as well!! I know what it's like losing so much weight, but then being stuck at those last few pounds. What I did with my diet is pretty much stopped eating the junk food and eating more fruits and vegetables. Also eat more lean proteins. Also watching calories in and calories out helps a lot too. But keep up the good work, and I'm sure you will eventually lose those last 40 lbs.

I had that same problem, my whole life I've been over weight until I was 21. I'm 5'10 and at time the most I have ever weighed was 215, so I started doing a ton of cardio, every day for at least 50 mins, and made sure I sprinted like never before everytime I would run or hike. Just a few months later I lost like 40 pounds and my belly looked really loose and flabby everything else looked way leaner on my body. I got discouraged for a while, because I had put alot of effort in trying to loose it all. I thought about getting a tummy tuck a handful of times, but instead got right back up and had more rage and more anger and more desire to loose the belly fat and worked out 3 to 4 hours every single day for 6 months. I Still did my cardio, but started to do more sit ups and push ups all kinds of abdominals. Now I weigh 169 but have 17 inch biceps and wide shoulders with a size 28 waist !!!! I proved to myself that if I really wanted something done I had to put alot of sweat and tears in to it.
