I hink that really depends A LOT on how much excess skin you have and whether it is all skin being removed or also some residual fat, and even how lax your abdominal muscles were to begin with. I only lost an inch off my waist, but i had already had a hernia repair and what he removed was pretty much just skin and attached tissue, but not much fat. I lost much more across my rib cage, ut i never actally measured that. My best guess is 2 - 3 inches (there was a lot of skin up there). I also did NOT have him do any liposuction, so I still have two little bulges of residual fat on my sides right above my waist. I have no idea how/why I lost the fat from the front, and even from my back, but still have those two spots right at the sides! My guess is that it would have been another inch or so if I had decided to pay for the liposuction.
