Bye Bye Sharpei Butt - Marina Del Rey, CA

After 150 pounds of weight-loss in the last ten years, I am scheduled for a butt lift, thighplasty and a body lift. In 2013 I had and Extended Abdominoplasty with Public Lift & Panniculectomy in one procedure and a few months later I had a Arm Lift, Breast Lift, & Bra-line Back Lift in another procedure. We could probably create two full human adults with the skin that has been removed. This... READ MORE

Thanks. I'm very pleased with almost all of my procedures. It's all about having a reasonable expectation of results. No matter how fit we get, we're not 18 anymore! READ COMMENT

You're doing great. Hang in there. I gained weight with all three of my surgeries, I know how frustrating it can be. READ COMMENT

6-8 weeks. Everyone is different, so what I experienced it's a rule per se. If you're concerned you're not healing properly, talk to your Dr. I found with all of my surgeries that that 6-8 weeks was the magic number READ COMMENT

Recovery from that was easy. The arms, which were part of this surgery group for me, was a difficult recovery. I found the back to be easy. But everyone is different. I know surgeons say this, but it's really true. READ COMMENT
