tummy tuck/boob job :-)

#1
I have my consultation on thursday and wanted to pick the brains of those who have gone under the knife. i anticipate having the surgery in may, when I WILL be 2 stone lighter, but only just at the end of my 100 days, do you know if i have to 'eat' for a period of time before they'll do the surgery? Not sure what the policy is on surgery when SS. Anyone know?
thanks

It depends on your overall health at the end of the 100 days....
I have referred patients to surgery for gall bladder etc while they were on LL and its been no probs but if your general health is suffering in any way then you won't be allowed to go ahead with the surgery.
What I would say from your ticker is that if you want to lose almost 2.5 stones wait until you have it all off as even losing 6lbs after a boob job can make them look like Victoria Beckhams.....

Hi Kate

I'm having a consultation with a surgeon re: a boob job on Thursday this week too :)

I've been told I can get a tummy tuck on the NHS if I keep my weight off for 2 years so may hold out for that. At least it gives me an incentive to maintain the loss I guess :rolleyes:

Good luck and let us know how it goes!

Hi Kate

It's not quite the same - but I'm going into hospital in just over a week to have both knees operated on. Apart from one additional blood test in pre admission there doesn't seem to be any problem with being on LL - I can even carry on whilst in the hospital!

Thanks all! Yes, Pixie, you are right! Although the consultation is on Thursday I'm hoping she'll schedule me in for early May, so i will be at my goal weigh (and I will!) Not sure I'm going for implants, think a lift is more liekly, although my husband would like me sporting a pair of F cups, he can bugger off, a reduction to a B/C would be my ideal, I want them to stay where they are after the lift!
thanks again

Can i let you know on Thursday, I think tummy tuck is about 5K but as I don't know what I'm having done to boobs, can't guess. Lipo about 1.5K depending on how much she recommends I have done
Kath-I'm going to Bupa Parkway at Solihull, just up the road for me :)
