missy_belle posted a topic in The Photo GalleryI still want to lose another 6kgs so that I weigh less than the total amount of weight that I've lost, but I thought I may as well share my before and after pics after and very long process to lose 65kgs. 140kgs in November 2007 at my heaviest weight in a size 26 BMI 48.4 (morbidly obese). If I was only 5kgs heavier my BMI would have reached 50 pushing me into the super morbidly obese category. 123kgs in July 2010 feeling pretty good after losing 17kgs and in a size 22 BMI 42.6 (morbidly obese) 103kgs in February 2012 climbing the Sydney Harbour Bridge after losing 36kgs and in a size 20 top, size 18 bottom BMI 35.6 (obese class 2) 92kgs in December 2013 in a club after losing 47kgs and in a plus size 18 top, plus size 16 bottom BMI 31.8 (obese class 1) 75kgs in April 2013 after losing 65kgs and in normal size 12 skirt and normal size 14 top (I'm 5'7 or 1.7m) My BMI 25.7 so still technically overweight but only just. Update: 23-May-13 I just hit the magical number of 72.2kgs this morning which means I am no longer technically overweight (BMI = 24.9 healthy weight range). Whoo hoo!!! Of course I immediately updated my profile to be in the 100% weight loss club. Update: 18-Aug-13 This morning I weighed in at 69.4kgs which means that I am now literally (less than) half the person I once was. For the past few months my weight has been relatively stable. A few weeks ago I started getting serious about losing as much weight before my body lift and breast lift surgery scheduled for 29-Oct-13. Update: 26-Oct-13 Photos pre-reconstructive plastic surgery. 68kg BMI 23.5 (170cm/5'7) Update: 24-Nov-13 Photos 26 days after body lift and breast lift with implants. 68kg BMI 23.5 (170cm/5'7) Size 10 bottom, Size 12 top (Bras 14DD) Surgery on 29th October 2013 by Assoc Prof Mark Gianoutsos in Sydney. I am extremely happy with my surgeon's results. He is amazing! Oh and this is me just after the shower with no makeup. The before and after body lift photos are frames from videos which is why I sometimes have a strange expression on my face as I may have been talking/moving at the time. Update: 04-Jan-14 Photos pre- and post arm lift (scar in posterior position) and inner thigh lift (groin incision only - no vertical scar). 68kg BMI 23.5 (170cm/5'7) Size 10 bottom, Size 12 top (Bras 14DD) Surgery on 10th December 2013 by Assoc Prof Mark Gianoutsos in Sydney. Refer to thread for my comments about the reconstructive plastic surgeries. Update: 15-May-14 Photo update approx 6 months post surgery for arm lift and body lift. 69kgs. Update: 1-June-15 Photo update approx 19 months post surgery for body lift. 75kgs. Plastic Surgery Details - Body Lift and Breast Lift with Implants Body Lift $14,100 (Medicare Item numbers: 30177 Lipectomy radical abdominoplasty (pitanguy type or similar), 30171 lipectomy wedge excision of skin and fat) Breast Reduction (aka lift) with Silicone Implants $8,750 (Medicare Item numbers: 45520 x 2 Reduction mammaplasty (unilateral) with surgical repositioning) (Implants 275cc silicone round moderate profile) Costs exclude compression garments ($350) and hospital costs. Additional cost of implants approx $2,300 paid by Private Health Insurance (I think they may have been paid by PHI as they are considered "surgically implanted prostheses" under the Federal Government's Prostheses Schedule) Medicare and PHI Rebates for combined surgery was $2,712 (note Medicare pays less when procedures are combined in one surgery) Note surgery costs are paid 2 weeks prior to the surgery date. Receipts are issued after the surgery date. Medicare pays on the final receipts so this is refunded after all costs were paid upfront. I have zero excess PHI so incurred no hospital charges. PHI should always cover hospital costs and Medicare will pay rebates if the surgery has a medicare item number. Plastic surgery following massive weight loss is reconstructive surgery and is not considered to be "cosmetic surgery" (which is excluded from all PHIs).

Note originally I was quoted $7,750 for the brachioplasty and a further $7,850 for the inner thigh lift but received an unexpected discount for my second surgery which combined the two procedures.
