Hello, I'm a 50 year old male who just had a full tummy tuck. Here is my quick version of my story:
I was over weight for most of my like an done day I just had enough. At my heaviest i was around 240/250 lbs. In 2001 I decided I needed to do something about it, so I did. I became a runner and lost 60 lbs! So from the year 2000 until present I regularly exercise and run up to 30 miles a week. I completed 12 marathons to date etc.
So leading up to my surgeries, even with all the exercise I had spots that were never going to go away with diet or running. So I had Lipo Suction last year and the Doctor removed 2 liters of fat! The Doctor suggested we wait a year to see if the skin would recoil after the weight loss. Some of the skin recoiled but never fully. I then underwent a full tummy tuck to remove the loose skin and I'm in my recovery period. six weeks since my surgery and things are looking great and I feel amazing!
Since I removed the excess fat and skin my running has gotten better. I recommend this surgery to anyone who works out regularly and still not getting the results they are looking for
