Lower Body Lift After Massive Weight Loss (169 Pound Lbs) Love the Results! Video Attached! - Boston, MA

I had a gastric bypass 5 years ago which helped me lose 169 pounds.They cut off 12 pounds of extra skin total.

Pain- very intense, but worth it. Needed help bathing, standing, getting up for 2 weeks. 6 weeks until back to life 100%. I needed and used all of my pain meds. Stayed in the hospital for 2 days.

Money- Insurance paid for the front portion! I paid the difference to have the incision go all the way around! Out of pocket expense was $5,000 (without would be around $13,000)

Scars- I think I got lucky because I have no scar at all in the front! My sides have a darker almost purplish scar. My back has a super thin white scar. It has been two years, the scar is there and will always be but to me it was worth it!

I have a youtube channel that shows before the lower body lift and after the lower body lift . It also shows you how to clean the drains, get insurance to approve the procedure, and a interview with the doctor. Along with other helpful info.

Hi, did you ever go back for an armplasty? Did you like the dr.? I am looking into breast reduction, and I saw her on May 19th. It's been over three weeks and they haven't even submitted my precertification for insurance. I'm a little concerned about the office staff and their responsiveness, have you experienced that at all. How have your scars healed? Are you still at all swollen? Thanks I loved your videos too!
