However, I would like to get rid of my hanging belly from pg and csections. I am going with Dr. Mary Lee Peters... READ MORE

All of my life, I have struggled with my weight. I have done WW, quick, fad diets & my weight has gone up & down. in the late 90's I had my weight down to the upper 140's & at that time, I had decided to have implants placed after a failed breast reduction & tummy tuck. The... READ MORE

First, I found this site while researching for my own answers. I am scared and very nervous about my upcoming procedure. I have chosen to get a 360 circumferential body lift. I have not been out of the 200's since I was about 15 yrs old and quite frankly I am tired of not being able to see my... READ MORE

Three years ago, I started a weight loss journey that I will never regret. I had gastric bypass surgery and lost (and have kept off through a complete shift of nutritional and exercise habits) over 135 pounds. This weight loss has been life changing, but still left visual scars in the form of... READ MORE

I have been overweight my whole life. I finally was able to lose almost 100lbs naturally through hard work and eating clean. After losing so much weight I was left with excess skin that made me feel insecure and I did not look like the athlete I had become. I finally was ready to make the next... READ MORE

After finishing with several consultations I have chosen a doctor and committed to a surgery date. I am both excited and terrified if I'm being truly honest, but can't imagine not doing this. I am curious for inside and opinions about things to have on hand helpful tips for recovery etc. I will... READ MORE

My Journey has been so long but November 4, 1999 I had Weight loss surgery at less than 5ft tall and 210 lbs. I lost initally 75 lbs to 135 I evened out at about 142-147.

Since I have had 2 procedures I am posting on both topics. The titles are the same for both and the other blog is under Arm Lift. Also, on my arm blog I have before and some arm after pictures. I had my lower body lift 13 days ago. Briefly, I lost a lot of weight slowly and steadily for no... READ MORE

I migrated to the United States from the Middle East in what is referred to as an arranged marriage. Due to the conservative culture and upbringing, I was not able to workout or go out in public without full cover. I had two beautiful girls during that time until I divorced my husband. Couple...

I have been on real self for quite some time before I scheduled my surgeries. Originally, I had no plans of sharing my experience on here since there were so many who do. But I find that I experienced some things that I have not heard mentioned (or found mentioned) and believe it would be... READ MORE

I am 95% ready to do this. I am confident I have found the doctor. My husband is super supportive. I just need to go for it. I had the lap band in 2008. I have been stalled at 172-175 for too long. I box and kickbox a few times a week, but I have a hard time doing everything because of my tummy,... READ MORE

After losing approximately 120 pounds, I was left with saggy skin and flesh that no amount of exercise could fix. I am extremely grateful to Dr. Capella and his physician assistant, Scott, for their competence, artistry, and kindness - my results exceeded my expectations and I am extremely... READ MORE

Never thought any of this was possible, I figured I was just too old and I have lived with a troubled bottom half my whole life, so just thought that was the way things had to be. Never in my adult life have I even worn shorts or a skirt above the knee. I have always had fat knees and fat... READ MORE

Lost about 40kg after gastric sleeve. Had to get rid of excess skin via Bodylift and Bilateral Medial Thigh Lift. Remarkably well the day after operation. Up on my feet next day, though it takes about a week to feel 'normal' again. Takes about six weeks to recover well and you have to wear a... READ MORE

I am scheduled for a 6-hr surgery on October 10th. Dr. Capella will revise my tummy tuck to a lower body lift, do further tightening of my... READ MORE

I have battled my weight my entire life. I had gastric sleeve in November 2011 and lost 126 lbs total. This left my body with a lot of extra skin. I worked out 2-3 hours a day with no improvement in my tummy. Dr Nir recommended a circumferential lower body lift. The surgery lasted about 9 hours... READ MORE

WELL! I have been all over this website for about two years now. If you have had a lower body lift on this planet and written about it here on Realself, then i most likely have read it and looked at your pictures. There are so many amazing stories on here. I love that this community has been... READ MORE

I had visited numerous plastic surgeons in the Charlotte area, but when I met Dr. Kortesis and his team I knew that this was where I would have my surgery. Due to the large amount of weight loss I have had over the past 4 years, I needed more than just a tummy tuck. Dr. Kortesis was the FIRST... READ MORE
