I have researched this for the last 6 months. After gaining 100 pounds with an autoimmune disease and having lost 95 of it.

I'm having a body lift/circumferential tummy tuck in 4 days with Dr. G. After having lost 108 lbs, I'm finally getting rid of the loose skin hanging around my abdomen and back. My final goal is to at last be able to show my full six pack(only my upper abs are visible now ), which I feel is... READ MORE

Hi! I'm very new to RealSelf but I have been lurking for awhile--at least most of 2015. I am 35 yrs old and thus far I've lost 100 lbs through focusing on dieting initially, but most of my recent weight loss has been due to me making healthier choices and habits with food and incorporating...

I'm nearly 3 weeks out and am struggling with the recovery from the auto augmentation. I did not realize the discomfort, and this has been the hardest part of the recovery. I don't know how long I can live with not being able to lean back, walk, lie on my back, without feeling like I'm laying... READ MORE

2 years back I had an abdominoplasty with liposuction of the flanks with Dr. Stephen Zucker of South Bend, Indiana. The result left me with a deformed look, worse than I was and he wanted me to pay him $5000 more to correct it. When I gave him a piece of my mind, he agreed to do it for a fee of... READ MORE

4 months before my 50th birthday I decided that I was sick of being the biggest girl at all the functions. I had a husband and family and friends that adored me but I didn't adore myself. I made the decision to start my weight loss journey. It started with a personal trainer who has literally... READ MORE

I lost over 130 pounds from having weight loss surgery and was left with a lot of excess skin and some fat. I couldn't have found a better surgeon than Dr. Schooler and his incredibly kind and loving team to take care of me. I never dreamed I would have a body like the one I have now and could...

Dr. Sauceda has been very patient with me so far. I have had tons of of conversations with him, changed what I wanted done, and bothered him with lots of emails! So I will be getting a lower body lift, breast lift with implants, arm lift, inner thigh lift and fat transfer to my butt. I have a... READ MORE

I think that Dr. Clarke gave back my confidence. I am very satisfied with the outcome of the surgery. He made me very comfortable prior and during the procedure with his professionalism. I have uploaded some of my pictures. My skin is very sensitive and heals very slow. I had a scratch on my... READ MORE

I had a good friend that recommended Dr Talbot to me after loosing 150 lbs with diet and exercise. Dr Talbot was always professional and did a great job. Dr Talbot is very upfront and tells you what you can expect. This is what I look for in a Dr. Dr Talbot never came into the room and acted... READ MORE

I am now 5'9" and 140lbs. When I was a child, I gained a lot of weight from ages 10-14. At my heaviest, I was 233lbs and 14 years old. Both of my parents were attractive athletes, and while they never degraded me, they did encourage me to lose weight, buying me exercise machines, personal... READ MORE

He has over 13 years experience with body lift and post-weight loss surgery, and has a stunning office only thirty minutes from my home. My initial consultation was on 3/17/14, and I was greeted...

Lost weight in 2011 and was finding excess skin was making it difficult to run and fit into skinny boats (I love kayaking). The scar is very feint and very neat. The result is amazing (I don't have to tuck my excess skin anymore) and I can't wait to go back for a breast reduction and upper body... READ MORE

I've had a "mother's apron" since my first child was born 25 years ago. My middle is also, unfortunately, where I seem to store my fat. I always wanted to get rid of the flab around the middle and was finally in a position to get it. I had a facelift with Dr. Vitenas a year ago, and was very... READ MORE

I'm a little over a month away from my surgery date! I've lost a total of 160 pounds over the past five years, have spent the past two years going to the gym regularly and have successfully maintained my current weight for nearly two years! I've put on a decent amount of muscle but am plagued by... READ MORE

Dr. Bekanich did a wonderful job in my circumferential body lift, chest contouring, back and arm lifts. She was the perfect example of professionalism and her patient care is second to none. She was able to answer all of my questions in an understandable manner and her follow up care was... READ MORE
