    Weightloss and excess skin

    Happy birthday, excess skin all depends on your skin and amount of exercise your doing, im almost 43 and have lost 65kilo in 18 months and just had plastic surgery to feel better about myself, I had a tummy tuck and breast reduction and lift done by Dr Mark Moore all up $7500 for Mark Moore $1400 for anesthetic $155 for initial consultation, about $600 of blood bills after surgery and ill prob get about $2000 back in refunds, My arms and legs bounced back fine and don't need any surgery and I was back at work 10 days after surgery due to lots of exercise there was no need for any muscle reconstruction during surgery which makes the rehab time really fast, "in total I had 1.2 kilo of skin removed from Tummy and 1.4 kilo from breasts. So if you feel like its not bouncing back now i would suggest start saving because the plastic surgery was the third best thing I've ever done after having my son and my lap band Good luck and hope your 21st is amazing

    Hi there new and almost new bandits, just do your best I just wanted to share with u all, banding is the best thing i have ever done for myself in my entire life (almost 43 years) I was obese for most of my life and defiantly since i was about 12 years old my only regret was not getting banded sooner. Good uck to you all and good on you all for making this decision, just remember it is just a tool, i have found the best part of my new best friend(the band) is i never feel hunger any more and i now enjoy quality foods over quantity of food love hugs and fabulous results to you all Ali

    Hi everyone, Though it was time to check in again with a little inspiration Well for me life has been crazy but I have managed to maintain my goal of 67 kilos now for over 8 months and as a reward to myself Im going under the knife this Friday 16th May for a tummy tuck and breast reduction, im excited and scared all at the same time ive added a couple of recent photos too, hope you are all well Ali
  18. Hi fudge I was banded in August 2012 and its the best thing I've ever done, I agree with all the above it can be very frustrating and upsetting at times and its very hard if your single and out in the dating scene 9at 42 like me) to explain the lack of food consumption when a man has just shelled out a fortune for a fabulous diner even worse if you have to go throw it up, but with time you adapt and know what you can and cant eat I stick to fish when ever I eat out with new people as I know I have no problems. As much as my weight loss has been a huge success, with a lot of hard work as well as the band I walk/run up to 10ks a day now and have walked minimum of 30min since one week after surgery, but I now know quite a lot of sleevers and I wish I had explored that option as it appears easier than the band they don't have the stuck/ vomit problems and no re adjustments to deal with, but as everyone else has said speak with your surgeons/Drs and read/research as much as possible and ask the experts that question
