tummy tuck

    55 yo female.(NOT a specific medical question) I am wondering if a tummy tuck is worthwhile since my belly button is completely hidden and skin laxity is becoming a problem. I am not overweight now and fully epi paleo. Delivered two 9lb. boys. I am practicing CT and wearing as little as possible in the sun when I am able.
    Thanks in advance for any feedback

    I think elective surgeries are superfluous but that is one decision you have to weigh for the psychological aspects.

    Jack’s point about weighing the decision from phycological aspects seems on point. I’m going to live along time and can’t be shy about showing skin. (Skin in the Game) Anyone want to comment on the importance of confidence?

    How invasive is this surgery? Recovery time?
    How much C/T do you do? Do you wear a compression shirt when you C/T?

    What about the technique where they freeze your belly fat? I can't remember the name of it at the moment.

    Confidence must come first, even before you let the sun see your tummy.

    My understanding is that the fat is gone and the problem is of too much skin.
    -------->loose skin

    So, the question is, how to shrink excess skin (after the fat loss).

    Thanks so much for feedback! I really appreciate being able to share this. Caroline, when they suck fat out it’s called liposuction. I am not overweight. No fat removal necessary. They will pull up tummy and reposition belly button. I have hanging skin due to big babies. I am told recovery is 6 weeks.

    Big babies are often due to high fasting insulin.
    Was it that way in these cases?

    I had a tummy tuck and my breasts put back where they belonged after I lost a great deal of weight over 10 years ago. I walked bent over for a couple of weeks and wore an abdominal binder for awhile. It’s a personal choice and still is a positive for me to this day. I would do it again in a heart beat. But that is me.

    I am not a doctor.
    I would be thinking about
    #1.circadian rhythm
    #2. Optimization of hormones (their binding proteins, etc) that are directly regulated by pituitary gland
    #3. Look into TRH (that (among other things) tells pituitary what to do.
    #4. Use Spectracell's tests to guide my micronutrient optimization

    The pituitary is often referred to as the "master gland" because of its influence on other hormone-secreting glands of the endocrine system.
    you want to check (and possibly help) the master. ----->>(TRH)
