To tummy tuck or not? 25 and have no children...plan someday
I did the lap band in 04 ... Just recently made it to 100lbs down and have decided to treat myself to some new breasts however my whole body needs a lift. My question is whether any1 here thinks i should get the tt now even tho eventually one day in the future not tmw or a month from now or even a year..maybe 5 years or so i do plan to have children if the right man ever comes around that is. Also what about the scars could they potentially scare a person away?

Any opinion would be greatly appreciated since this is all that seems to consume my mind these days

You should wait for this in my opinion, as soon you have kids go for it because after weight loss and pregnancy there will be sagging tissues near abdomen.

Hello, I'm new but I saw this and was in a similar situation so I feel compelled to reply. I'm 21 years old, and I too lost a lot of wieght and had a ton of loose skin that wasn't going anywhere. I had it since I lost the weight when i was 15 so its not like it was gonna tighten on it's own or anything. I am planning on having children in the future, and I was thinking I should probably wait but, i worked so hard to loose all the weight and feel comfortable in my own skin, only to be left with the loose skin. I also got implants when was 19. I know that eventually when I have kids it will stretch back out, but who knows when that will be. I want to enjoy my body while i still can and I went ahead an had the tummy tuck in may. I feel so much more comfortable in my clothes, out of my clothes with my boyfriend, and im 100% happy with my decision. When I have babies in the future I can go ahead an do it all over again. That is just my opinion, to go ahead and go for it. Good luck with evertything !
