8 and a half weeks post-op..

I think it’s about time for another update since the last thing I left you with probably gave you nightmares. 

Yes I am talking about those horrible open wound images. 

I’ve had a lot of proud moments since then! I have a somewhat floppy and wrinkled bikini body! 

I managed to fit into some 28-inch waist super skinny jeans.


It’s a shame about my poor taste in socks.

I even managed to fall in love with a dress that I then purchased in a UK SIZE 10 because it fit me! 

I was a UK 22 previously, meaning I am now less than half the size I used to be! 

I’ve even been posting some considerably under-dressed photos on my Instagram account – prompting some rather cringe private messages asking me when I will “remove the heart emojis”. 


I have never posted these photos to show off how “sexy” I am, I have posted them to show people the ins and outs, ups and downs, benefits and drawbacks of skin removal surgery. I have excess skin still! I have back wrinkles! 

I’m 8 weeks outs and I’m still not sure what to expect after the swelling goes down. 

I love my back boobs and my wrinkles and my sagging breasts (… wait, can I take that back?) but I had little idea that they would exist after my surgery because nobody posted a clear picture! 

I will never love the thighs though. Yikes. 

But damn, am I 100 times better than I used to be!
