Skin Removal? Body Lift/contouring?

Wednesday, August 22, 2012

Has anyone done this?? I have major skin leftover from discovering I DO love myself and I AM a fit person. The skin is not only gross to look at but a constant reminder of the emotional and physical abuse I did to myself. I feel like if I shed it, I will be shedding the pain, suffering, damage and old habits I kept up with to keep myself in the dark pain of obesity.

Has anyone had it? Are you thinking about it? What would you have done?

For me:
Body lift (tummy tuck with inner thigh lift as I have major MAJOR sagging issues there that won't go away no matter what I do)
Arm lift
Breast reconstruction/mastoplexy

None of this is because I am too lazy to continue. I AM THIN. I am fit. I have earned it. But...I can't see it because I have all this wrinkled saggy skin on top. Ugh!!!!

I just want to do it now!!!

I have an appt with a doctor for a consult in October and I CANNOT wait!!!!

    Thank you. I feel like a healthy fit person now but I am sick of having to wear sizes that are bigger to allow for "tucking" my skin in. I have run two marathons in 10 months and I still feel like a fat chick...when I pull my skin tight (it's gross to do but I can lift it REALLY far off my body) I see the abs I have worked for and the quad muscles I have earned. I wanted them out there...for me to see everyday not just when I cry and pull back the layers!!

    I fear when I reach my goal weight I will have the same problem. That the skin won't want to go back to where it is supposed to go.
Keep us updated on how the consult goes.

    I have not done it, but I wish you luck. You've got a great attitude!
