Default 2 years post op skin removal

April 18th marks 2 years post op from 360 skin removal surgery.

As a reminder, this was a week before surgery:

As you can see, my thighs look HORRIBLE as I can't afford to get them done. As far as the abdominal part goes, though, that has held up well. My belly button never healed quite right. But overall, looks okay!

As you can see, there is still some loose skin on my back and he couldn't pull both the back and the front completely tight. He could now do an additional surgery to pull the back tight, but I won't be having that done.

I will be posting more pics on my blog tomorrow if anyone is interested - specifically some close ups of the scars which are finally starting to fade.

Wow, the difference is amazing. I've been fortunate on my weight loss journey but the extra skin was a worry for most of it.

Thank you for your willingness to share this part of your journey with us. You must feel so much more comfortable now.

I have scars (for other reasons) and they continue to improve long past the two year mark.

Congratulations! You look fantastic I had a tummy tuck a few months ago to address excess skin on my stomach and while it's not perfect it's a million times better than it was.
Well done on your efforts, you must feel amazing

That tummy job is awesome!! Wow! I was thinking of having one done for either my stomach or my thighs when I'm done losing (depending on which looks the worst lol). Amazing!

You're so cute! I'm happy for you that you were able to lose weight, get fit, and have the skin removal surgery done.
