Hi all,
I have had 2 csections. The first was really low and so my second baby hung over. I gained way too much weight with my second and have lost most. I am 207 at this point and seeing a doctor in February. What do people recommend?? Should I lose more before surgery? Or go ahead and get it do done? I am usually around 170 and a runner but feel like the apron prevents me from being active because it's hangy and in the way. Advice??

Before first surgeon appt.

I would personally suggest losing as much weight as possible before having the surgery. I waited until i was down to MY target weight before I had my panniculectomy.

Hey there, welcome!

Your doctor is going to be able to give you the best advice. The thing I wuld ask, is if you lose the extra 37lbs after having the panniculectomy, will you then have another apron to deal with. It obviously won't be a huge apron and the answer may be that you can exercise to tone the skin back into position.

Pleased o keep us updated and let us know how your doctor appointment goes!
