So I went in for a plastic surgery consult today. I’ve got some loose skin on my tummy that’s not going away, I’ve got some back fat, and I haven’t lost anything in 2 months.
The consult was so much nicer than what I thought it would be! Basically he says I need a mini tummy tuck. By that, he means all I need is skin removal. Apparently my core is firm and I don’t need muscle repair. I don’t need anything done on the thighs and on the back fat, he suggests just waiting until the tummy is done to see how it looks.
No lipo needed right now, and he said I was very well put together. Now how nice is that?! I asked him if it was fat or skin that I had left and he said it was all skin. Only fat was transdermal fat and it wasn’t going to come off without the surgery. I asked if he thought I needed to lose any more and he said “No, you’re tiny. You can’t lose any more because there’s no more to lose. You’re skinny”. How cool is that?!
So basically, $6,800 later I too can have a flat tummy. I’m going to do it. Biggest issue is timing. SIX weeks of no air travel without effort! Back to work in 7 days they swear, but can’t lift more than 10 poundss for 3 weeks. So not sure when but I’ll schedule when work eases up a bit.
I’m so happy! I’m happy I can get it done and I’m also happy I don’t need more than that.
