Good luck to you sweetie. I was in your situation following three kids and my insurance approved it. I pray that yours does to. Just had my surgery on May 27th and it has already made such a difference in my life. I hope that you know the feeling as well. Keep us posted.

I would love to follow your story. Which doctor did you start this process with? I have had two children and my flap is almost identical to yours, mine is from being obese and my two children but I'm so self conscious, I wont even wear jeans anymore. I'm afraid they will want me to lose tons of weight before they will help me. I just want it gone :(

Good luck on your journey! As far as how long you may have to wait on insurance that varies depending what insurance company it is. I had to wait 30 days with Cigna. I feel so much better since having my panniculectomy and know that you will too!

I know what you mean, I haven't had the kids, but I have a lot of excess skin from weight loss and will be needing this surgery myself soon. I'll definitely be keeping up-to-date with your progress!
