My Personal Statement:
I had a full abdominal panniculectomy with no lipo or muscle restructuring. I had lost over 170 pounds after Lap Band Surgery in 2006. I was left with a severe apron with stubborn fat and skin that was not being affected by weight loss and exercise. I weighed 200 pounds preop, and was a size 22. 20.8 pounds of fat and skin were removed, and my post op weight is 183. I am a size 16 now, even with the swelling. I can wear my bikini now. YAY!
I had this surgery because of really bad skin rashes, and really bad skin infections, along with herniated discs in my back from the weight of the pannus pulling me forward.
I am so happy with the results, and still in a state of shock. I feel amazingly well, and am healing very nicely. I look at myself in the mirror constantly. None of my clothes fit and that is alright! I am just fine with wearing baggy clothes and tying knots in my panties till the swelling is gone and I can go shopping for new clothes.
Having this surgery has changed my life, but has also enhanced my health and fixed a lot of issues I was dealing with. I recommend this to anyone who has an overlapping apron. It not only fixes any medical issues but also fixes many self esteem issues you might have. It has done wonders for me!
