i'm a mother of two that can never find cloths to fit my flabby belly. after losing the pregnancy weight with ww and exercise, i realize the skin was never going to go away. my husband has been very supportive and surgrey is scheduled for june 10.. yay!!!



Congratulations!   Yes you will feel wonderful having all of the extra skin removed.  It is nice that you are able to do this for yourself...and have a husband who supports you.

Keep us up to date on your journey :)

Well, I made it....I had a rough day after surgrey with vomoiting alot. My Doc did't release me until 11 that night...But woke up this morning and I'm doing great...o by the way pre op for surgrey thay had to stick me 3 times before anyone could get it...Then Yesterday afternoon my vein busted and the dr wanted me still have an iv so got stuck 2 more times...At that point i was so over the whole thing...I hate IVs period! But like i saud today is going great..Have my follow up tomorrow at 12:30...he also during surgrey found that i had a hernia so he fix that and now insurance might pay for some of the cost...that would be great. Surgrey was 7 hrs long and he took off 5 lbs..yay

You have the same stats as me and I think your tummy looks like it could be mine! I can't wait to see your after pictures. My PS didn't seem to think that I'd need lipo. Where did you get your lipo?
