Tummy tuck

I had a tummy tuck after a 100+ pound loss. I waited three years to make sure I could maintain well and to see how much my body could repair itself. Still looked like an empty bag, so went with the tummy tuck. LOVE IT! I don't think of it as a quick fix at all. I worked very hard to make the progress I did and couldn't get further on my own.

I hesitated answering because my lipo was on the face/neck. I have a rhinoplasty, chin implant and lipo from the chin line down the neck.

Very pleased. I will say there was a lot of swelling that you have to be patient about.

Am really considering a tummy tuck so I'll monitor the thread.

I have to say I am a big fan of plastic surgery. I really wanted to have a natural look so you do have to shop for the right doctor. The results can be life changing.

I had lipo to the saddlebags on my hips and yes I've very pleased with the results. Despite losing weight and getting back to a healthy weight I still felt chubby do to the saddlebags.

Not everyone needs lipo but it is a great tool for reshaping certain bad areas of the body. However it is not a weight loss tool it can make you look thinner by removing certain bad spots (like saddlebags) but it cannot help with overall weight loss. In total the surgery removed 2 lbs of fat from my body.
