Belt Lipectomy for Momma of 2 - Post Falls, ID

I am a 30 years young momma of 2. And at 5'6 170-180 I have lost 100lbs via a Vertical Sleeve. I have had enough with the extra skin so it is time to get it removed. I struggled with weight gain all my life. So now holding 2 years with current weight. I am ready for a breast lift, tummy tuck and lipo. I want to be able to wear a 2 piece and show my stomach.

I had my 1st consult last week I have 2 more scheduled next week. I have lots of price quotes for Reno and salt lake but I may have to fly down there for a few days to see in person for consults if I don't find a Dr up here.


I am getting anxious for consults... been with...

I am getting anxious for consults... been with personal trainer now for 2 weeks. I am so sore it feels like I already had tt. lol...

ok had 2nd consult today. It wasnt bad did like him better than 1st dr. I am having issues with the DR's not willing to do back lipo at the same time.I have found the dr.s in reno and slc will do it but none up here. All are board certified. I just dont understand why some will and some wont. Did or has anybody ran into this problem?

Ok had my 3rd consult and I feel confident with him. The 2nd dr wasnt bad but he wouldnt do an extened he wanted me to come back and give me a local anesthetic and cut out my sides in the office. I was like WHAT????. SO I like this dr and he says my breast should be left along until after this surgery to see where I really want to be. I have good fullness and size 38DD. I just want them up high. But this dr will do body lift which includes tummy tuck, hips, back and butt lift. He says I could get done as soon as June 2nd. So I will see. I need to sleep on it. And I really like the fact that I wouldnt have to fly anywere. Only 30 mins from our house. Has anybody else had this procedure done?

Hi Wahunter,

I'm sorry you've had to postpone your surgery but Trish is right, it's not long until you can go through with it. You're doing the hardest part in maintaining your weight loss. You're doing a great job!

You might want to check out our Lower Body Lift Community as well. Lots of folks over there who've had this done. Good for you working with a personal trainer! That's very admirable and a lot of hard work, I know!

I hope you are able to find the right plastic surgeon. It is so great that you have lost so much weight and deserve to have that extra skin removed. I am 5'6" 160 lbs. and am so excited about being able to wear a 2 piece again!

Thank you I think I have now. I know I am excited , it wont get rid of all of the stretch marks but most of them. I have never wore a 2 piece that wasn't a tankini. Hope your surgery goes well too!
