pics of fat and skin taken off during tt surgery?

I watch plastic surgery shows and they show the patient a photo of how much skin and fat that they remove during the TT and then they tell you how much it weighed. Was this your experiences too?

When I returned to Dr S for my second and third surgeries, I asked to see pics of my removed skin from 2009's tummy tuck and arm lift.  He showed me all of his pictures and I was amazed!  I'm a nurse, so pretty much nothing grosses me out!

I think it depends on the situation.
My skin removal was weighed and I was told amount but as I had not asked for photo I did not see heat ut looked like-bummer!

 I specifically asked for the weights to be taken prior to going into the ER. I wanted to be able to report here to the board.  I declined my surgeons generous offer to snap pictures of the removed skin and tissue.  I never ever want to see that again - on or off my body!

I was told at my consult they will take pics and weigh and measure if I want them too.  I have my preop tomorrow.

I am for sure going to get photos taken and weights and then put them up for you all to see.

I think that is the funnest part.
