After loosing 90 lbs (naturally) I decided it was time to get a panniculectomy. With plenty of research and questions I found that it was right for me. The first couple of weeks are very painful, but so worth it. No more saggy skin or uncomfortable sitting. I would recommend anyone to get one just do a lot of your own research.

Update: Drains have been out for six days, I am off all meds, I am up and moving at about 90 percent and I was able to take a real shower(so happy). I am still uncomfortable while sleeping but otherwise healing well. The scaring is already starting to heal (hard to believe). My stomach still feels alittle tight but thats what happens when they cut and stretch your skin. So far no stretch marks or and no issues have arised. Fingers crossed. I will update again soon.

Okay gals, I was getting questions on how much I weighed before, during and after. I posted photos from beggining to end. From the time I was 95lbs (before weight gain), to 240lbs (after weight gain), to 180lbs (during weight loss) and the photos before surgery and after. Hope this gives you a full sense of how my body has been through hell and back. Now at 40 years old I am one happy and comfortable person.

Down another 6lbs. I am now 139lbs. The surgery has given me so much more hope and energy for continuing to loose weight and staying fit.
