I received a message from a moderator that someone complained about the pictures so in order not to offend anymore people, I will request to have it removed.
I don't really get what is so offensive about the human body, um, we all have one!! LOL.

I second the request for the name (or at least clinic) of your surgeon as those are fabulous results and I may be interested in the future in having surgery and I live in the same area. You can PM me if you don't want the info to be public.

You look amazing! thanks for sharing.

I just saw you live in B.C. Me too! I would love PM as well with the surgeon's name, etc.

Thank you for all the kind words... I really appreciate it!

If you are interested in finding out my surgeon's name, private message me and I would be happy to share.

I am just over 3 weeks out since my surgery and I have had ZERO complications. The hardest part is not being able to exercise and I am only allowed to do light walking until I hit the 8 week mark.

I had diastasis recti (4 inches of separated ab muscles) and an umbilical hernia repaired at the same time so the internal sutures are what take the longest time to heal.

Agreed! This is a REAL person who went through a REAL transformation! We should applaud and be honest about these journeys!

That was my intention... to simply show what can be achieved if you are left with a lot of skin after substantial weight loss.

I am happy that there are numerous people who can see it for just that.

CONGRATS!!!!!! I am so happy for you! Other then losing the weight, having the skin removed was the best thing I could have done, and it sounds like you feel the same way!

You look fantastic!!

Thank you!

I'm not quite there yet... I'm only 3 weeks post-op... but yes, I believe this will be one of the best decisions of my life.

You've had fabulous results! I had my tummy tuck and lipo done after massive weight fluctuations (and 7 large babies!) left me with horrible saggy skin. I wasn't at my goal weight but I had it done anyway, and since having it done I've found the motivation to go further and lose more weight.

Here's my before and after - not quite as dramatic as yours but I'm really pleased. I feel sexy in my own skin again, even if I'm not super skinny, and that for me was worth every penny I paid. I'm even going back in January to have my breasts uplifted and enlarged.


This photo was taken 3 months before surgery and 6 days after surgery.

Thank you for being brave and posting this! It gives many of us hope! I know there are lots of us who worry about extra skin and what our bodies will look like after weight loss. So, you posting this really gives us hope! You look amazing and I am so glad these pictures are still up. Really has me thinking now.

It's neat seeing your results, we have similar stats and I often wonder how my stomach will look in the end.

And look at all the BC people! It's weird to see so many of us in the same place
