After losing a lot of weight I had a large section of loose skin that hung down from my lower abdomin. They doctor called it an iron curtain. I had it removed. They cut from hip bone to hip bone.
I couldn't fully stand up for a few days and had a tube in my stomach that woud drain the wound. It was pretty rough but the pain killers helped.
It took a long time for the scar to go away but it was worth it. I was dating at the time and was always so emabrassed to have a guy touch my belly or see me naked. I don't care about the scar that is very light now.
