My Lower Body Lift and Breast Lift After 120 Pound Weight Loss - Houston, TX

There are no cons, only pros! I had a lower body...

There are no cons, only pros! I had a lower body lift and breast lift on September 24, 2009 and it has been the best thing I have ever done for myself. After a 120 pound weight loss, I had problems with excess skin and saggy breasts which were causing problems while exercising.

From my initial consultation with Dr. Lo I knew he was the right doctor for me to bring me through the remainder of my weight loss journey. He was kind, patient, open and answered all my questions - you can tell he loves helping his patients!

The surgery itself was much easier than I thought. I was pain free within three days of surgery, and my incisions were almost completely healed within three weeks. I am six weeks post-op today and am feeling great and ready to get back to my CrossFit exercise program and get back on my road bike! Let's hope Dr. Lo releases me for exercise after my six-week follow-up visit tomorrow!


Not so happy now

One year post-op I starting having severe tightness in my lower abdomen, like I had a girdle on that was 10 times too small. Went to numerous doctors and no one could tell me what was causing it. Plastic surgeon offered to un-do the tummy tuck to see if that was causing the pain, and to see if there was any scar tissue. I followed his advice but to no avail - I still felt like I was stuck in that too small girdle even after the surgery. My life had pretty much reverted back to when I weighed 280 pounds - unable to exercise and depressed - but I was at the lowest weight in my life. And my plastic surgeon said there was nothing else he could do for me (thanks Dr. LoMonaco). Its been 5-1/2 years now and not one doctor has been able to help or figure out why I am in so much pain and feel so tight in my lower abdomen.

I truly believe my Dr. is the best in the business on excess skin removal after massive weight loss.
