I am so glad I decided to do this for myself. At 60 years old, passed menopause, and being overweight for years I started to realize I had to do sometime now. I lost some weight but my skin around my lower belly just kept getting looser. I was stretched out with no tone. Going into this I knew I wont look like Im 20, 30, or 40 anymore. At 8 weeks now after the surgery, I lost 15 pounds by eating healthy, and walking more. The procedure helped with three inches off my waist, a flatter stomach and a big boost to my self esteem. I'm looking forward to my body changing more as the effects of the procedure and my own healthy efforts show more over the months ahead.
