yea i had the "surgery" 3 days ago, very little pain, plastic surgeon who in my opinion is the best in the state took off 5 lbs of loose skin, insurance covered it, i was eating salmon and brocolli in the recovery room and went home the next day. i am sore and have drains and the wrap around my body and am on lifting restrictions for 6 weeks but this surgery was so much easier than the RNY. i had it at a big medical center and got top notch care. would do it again in a heart beat!
Thank you so much for your feedback on your experience. Easier than RnY? what kind of anesthesia did they use? Everywhere I have seen it's an outpatient surgery, so it's awesome you got the extra care (maybe insurance just has you stay overnight vs. cash pay)
