Beyond happy that I completed a long-awaited procedure on my 'To Do List'. I am 5'5" and pre-op weight was 132-135. My Dr. said he removed/cut-off 1lb of excess skin and did remove apprx. 400cc's of fat during lipo on my abdomen....which lipo was performed first.

Even though I trimmed up and lost all the baby weight, I wasn't losing the skin that 'deflated' and was just sticking around. My only option was to have the excess skin removed and since my muscles did seperate due to diastasis recti they were repaired along with Abd. lipo for an added benefit and contouring. On March 26th 2013 the surgery was followed through and I'm not regretting my decision.
