How many pant sizes did you go down after TT
on 4/18/12 2:53 am
But like I said, if I am only going to loose one pant size, than there is no way that I am going to go through this expensive and painful experience,
Can you share how many pant sizes you went down and how much weight you lost. Also, if your story about a big tummy and small everything else is like mine, can you tell me what your experience was like.
I had about 3.6 pounds of skin removed during my tummy tuck.
I am 7weeks post op and back to wearing my pre op clothes.
Yesterday, I was able to slide my size 8 capris on and off without unbuttoning them ...... So, I am thinkingg that in some styles I may go down to a size 6.
I did not do the tt to lose more sizes, really, but to remove the hanging skin below my belly button, and lift my mons up.
I am also thrilled that I can now look down and SEE my belly button. It used to be hidden bay muffin top.
I probably lost 2 inches at the smallest part of my waist and about 6 inches if I measure 2 inches below my belly button
You need to get some consults and have a surgeon tell you how much they think YOU will lose.
Skin does not weight as much as you think, but it does take up a lot of room.

I was promised that I would look better, but no other promises. I had hopes, but not expectations because I did not want to set myself up for disappointment. I shed a few inches in my waist. I think 10 is very unrealistic, but I've been wrong before!

I have read this plastics board for over a year, and don't think it's realistic to lose 10 inches off your waist. But you should ask your surgeon. I consulted with several and most gave me the same expectations. They should be able to hold and pull your excess skin and give you a good idea of what you will look like underneath.
My situation was quite similar to what Lee said. I started as a size 10, around 150-155 pounds. I am now in a 6/8, 10 pounds lighter.
I have a before and after picture on my profile if you want to compare.
