I had VSG in May, 2012. I changed my eating habits and started to increase my level of exercise/activity as I lost weight. I lost 200 pounds. This led to A LOT of extra skin. I wanted (needed) to get it removed. I had worked so hard to lose the weight. I knew that having the excess skin removed would allow me to participate in activities that I could not otherwise (ie running). Insurance did not cover the procedure. However, when I looked at the price of the surgery, it was the same as a new car. The new car would only be around for 5-7 years. However, the skin would be gone FOREVER!

I missed two weeks of work following surgery. I wasn't in a lot of pain, just discomfort. I had my arms done at the same time. So I had a total of six drains. Two in the front, two in the back, and one in each arm. They were removed a week after surgery. They were the biggest pain of the recovery. I couldn't shower until the drains were removed. That first shower felt amazing.

Saint Louis Plastic Surgeon

I do not know anything about cosmetic surgeons. So, I contacted my bariatric specialist's office for a recommendation. They recommended Dr. Christian Prada. Dr. Prada and his staff are amazing!!!! They were very friendly and helpful throughout the process. Dr. Prada did a fabulous work. I am very pleased with the results. My scar line is very smooth and straight. It is hidden in my underwear line. I highly recommend Dr. Prada to anyone thinking of cosmetic surgery.
