Finally Ready to Complete the Journey.... - Knoxville, TN

I was the fat girl growing up, always on a diet that never worked and always bigger than everyone my age. I decided to try one last time, so I started counting calories/fat grams and walking daily.

In 18 months I managed to lose 175 lbs. That was 9 years ago and needless to say the skin is not going away on it's own(and there's alot). I'm looking forward to finding out my true weight after the surgery.

Hi Phoenix,

Thanks for sharing your journey with us. 175lbs is awesome, you've done a great job. I bet you can't wait for January to roll around!

It's been 8 days since my body lift and things are going great. I'm not having much pain at all, mostly it's just uncomfortable...the drains(I have 3) are the biggest nuisance. I'm hoping they come out next week. There is quite a bit of swelling, which will take awhile to go away but so far so good.....

Congratulations on your surgery. Hopefully once the swelling and bruising is gone you'll have some great results. All your hard work will have been worth it!

Dr Reath is top notch, I couldn't have asked for a better surgeon. The whole process was a breeze thanks to his staff and surgical team.
