Hey!  We've never spoken, I'm kind of new to this. I have my orientation on july 17th and I'm 22. I figured I would come to the 20's forum for information.    After surgery, it seems as though your skin is normal and not flabby.  I hope that this happens for me! you look amazing!    Did you do anything special to keep your skin firm or is it just because you're young and have alot of elasticity in your skin left?  This is my biggest fear of the surgery- having flabby loose skin everywhere.

thanks!!

Hey Love!
Unfortunatly I do have flabby skin. I just hide it really well. There is just no way possible to escape lose skin after losing so much weight. I HATE my skin. HATE it! My arms and armpits are really bad. It's so sad. My stomach and boobs are pretty bad too. I'm definitly going to have to have plastic surgery. Would I rather have that lose skin filled with 160lbs of fat like before? HELL NO! I'll take the skin even though it makes me miserable. No matter what you will have some lose skin. It just comes with the territory. This surgery will save your life! Lose skin is a small price to pay.
