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. In the past 3 years I have been in the 160's, not ideal but I plan on losing 20 before surgery. I had always been looking... READ MORE

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 had a tummy tuck and mons lift with Dr. Joseph F. Capella on April 18, 2013. My results were amazing. So I've decided to do a total body transformation. 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

I had wanted a tummy tuck for some time after initially losing some weight. I was always a "big girl" and at 5'1" my top weight (OUTSIDE PREGNANCY) was 220lbs. My family has a long history of obesity and 7 family members have had gastric bypass! I really wanted to avoid that but it wasn't until... READ MORE

Well after stalking this site for a couple of years, I am finally ready to make my dreams come true. I am 49 y/o 5'5 170 hoping to be 150 by surgery or close to it. I work out 6 days a week with beach body programs, but really feeling deflated by not seeing the results of my hard work.. I... READ MORE

Over the course of eight years - dieting and exercising on and off, I dropped 135 pounds. I went from a size 24 to a size 10. I went from 305 pounds down to about 174. For the past 12 months I've worked out 5 days a week in a crossfit type setting. I am in the best physical shape of my life, yet... READ MORE

I am a few weeks out from my Total Lower Body Lift and Breast lift with Implants! I am getting so nervous but excited. I met with my PS last week and before meeting with him I was feeling very anxious but after speaking with him I feel so ready to do this. He's amazing with such great bedside... READ MORE

Weighing in at 479lbs, I had gastric bypass in June of '09. After losing over 250lbs, I had an abdominoplasty, brachioplasty, gynecomastia and body lift, in Dec '15. It has been a tough, worthwhile journey that I've been videoing https://www.youtube... READ MORE
