My dr wants to do the 360 body lift on me next month... im only 8 months out is this too soon? he said i have 30 pounds of skin on my back and stomach. that would put me at 150ish after the surgery, he said i should get down to 130 to 120 with the way im losing. Should i go for it or wait?

Yes, you can often get insurance cover for your Weight Loss Surgery.
Our own Craig "Big-T" Thompson has been there and done that, and he's written an e-book about it.

I'd want a second opinion, at least. I hate to be cynical but could the doc have some self-interest here? If you have the 360 now, what will happen to any other skin when you're down to 120 or so? Just things to consider. Best of luck.

Part of it would be how much the extra skin is irritating you and hampering your movements.
I think a second opinion is in order.

I'm not far enough in to have this problem yet but it is something I would be interested in if it came to that...I have a friend who is considering having it done and she consulted with a plastic surgeon and he won't do anything on her until she's 18 months post op.

I guess all surgeons are different but I'd definately get another opinion...

good luck!

The skin is really bad, no matter what i put on it or what i do to make it not rub around there is always a rash. So bad it bleeds.

I did have a tt at a little over a year. I had been at the same weight for over 6 months. I was having some of the same problems that you are having. Some though that it was too early and that I should wait. I have never regretted it for a minute. They removed almost 9 pounds and it was just a tt not the body lift. I am still the same weight within a 3 pound up and down that I was then and it has been over a year. I love the results. He did tell me not to gain any weight or lose more than 20 or 30 more but I don't see that happening. lol You have to do what is best for you. Some say wait for 2 years but I could not stand it any longer. It is a big decision and it is not an easy surgery but I am happy with mine. Good luck
