I have lost 72 pounds so far and I think surgery might be ahead of me. I need to lose another 70 pounds tho. I hope some of my skin can bounce back before surgery time and/or before I'm in my late 30's or 40. I guess I was hoping for a fix, but I know with this process it's hard to find a true fix after so many years and decades of being obese.

Im already 43 and although my face looks younger I know my body skin just isnt up to contracting as much as it would have to. Ive got breasts like a 70 year old in my opinion - no volume and probably 6 inches lower than they should be or at least where I'd like them. :smileysurprised:

Ive had 2 C-sections 14 years apart and I have that 'apron' belly thing going on. I had quite a large tummy before I started losing weight so it keeps hanging lower as the fat volume decreases. The skin just isnt cooperating with me and jumping back.

If it were an issue and I had been at a reasonable maintained weight for a year, I would figure out how to afford it.
