I would like to know the answer too. Anyone here know what is the answer. I'll do some Googling and get back to you if I find an good answer. You should email the people at Medifast as they probably can help you..
I had a tummy tuck to remove loose skin in my abdominal region. It was partially covered by insurance... they paid for removal of the panus apron and I paid for the muscle work ($5500); I was 6- months out when I had the tummy tuck; I was also at goal weight (115 lost). My surgeon was comfortable doing the.
As long as I was within a 30-lb range of my weight goal; if I had additional weight to lose, he would not have done the.
I needed to have my panus apron removed because of frequent infections and lots of pain and discomfort from the irritating skin...at that point it was more neccessity than vanity...at this point I am just absolutely loving the results. It's been about 6-months since the tummy tuck now. My abs are flat and nice and toned. The.
Is painful and I still feel discomfort on my scar line from time to time. All in all it was worth it for me....
My experience helps. LWW..
I had a Lower Body Lift, Breast Augmentation & Lift & Arm Lift. Had Weight Loss.
6/2006. First Round of Plastics 10/2007, Second Round 3/2008. All in Mexico. Self Pay. Awesome experience..
I also went to Mexico for my.
I had an arm lift about 6 months after my GBS. I should have waited because I lost alot more weight and got the sag back. I just recently had a revision done on my arm (he did it for free) and I also had a breast lift with implants. I am now almost 1 1/2 years post op..
My arms look 100 times better and my breasts are in the right place now. I might need a slight revision on them in the long run. We have to remember that we damaged our skin.
It out as bad as we did and that the surgeon is basically re-constructing everything. Sometimes it takes more than one round..
But I am super happy with my results and saved a bunch of money going to Mexico. I went to the same place Eggface went to. The insurance didn't pay, but the cost was about half of what I would have paid here in the states..
I am planning on going back for a full lower body lift next year. I have to save more money for that because that is the most expensive round of.
I will be excited once it is all done!!!.
P.M. me if you want to know more about the surgeon, the cost, the facility, etc...
Do most of you who had GB need a "tucking" session? I am having my.
On the 26 and gosh..just really dont have the extra cash to do anymore than what I am getting..
Thanks for the imput...
Can anyone tell me how many pounds you lost after a panniculectomy?..
It just depends upon how much skin you have removed...it variesfrom what I hear...
I'm interested in plastic.
Too, but my doctor says I have to be at goal for 6 mths. And my immune system will have to be stronger. I need the extra skin on my tummy removed which my insurance will cover as a medical necessity because of lower back pain, rashes and infections. I need a breast reduction or reconstruction because I have indentations in my shoulders, and pain in my back which insurance will also cover as a medical necessity. I also need an arm lift because my extra arm skin gets in the way. I have a hard time with sleeves and when they check my BP at the Dr, the extra skin oozes out of the BP cuff. I'm still hoping the insurance covers this, but it's not looking like they will...
