Honestly, I never thought I'd want or need cosmetic surgery after losing weight. Despite being 277 lbs, I had somehow convinced myself that I wasn't fat enough to have excess skin when all was said and done. Boy was I wrong. I'm down about 80 lbs with another 60 to go. My arms and butt will be just fine, and my upper thighs will probably "bounce back" without a problem, but I already know that my stomach is going to be a BIG issue.

Most of my excess weight was (well, is) carried on my torso. I've got a very large "hanging" section underneath my belly button, and I'm fairly certain that this part in particular is beyond the recommended "give the skin a year to tighten up." It doesn't help that I had a c-section nine months ago.

Once I get to goal (and am done having children), I will probably look into surgery and start saving up.
