Too much cushion for the pushin'? (Yes, I said it.)

Major Disclaimer: This post will have WAY, WAY, WAY too much info for many of you. This blog may not be suitable for people on the delicate side of the spectrum. Read at your own risk. But there will be no apologies.

Those of you who read my random blogs know that I like to take note of the shifting body shapes that greet me in the mirror post-op. I've said often that we're a bit like balloon animals....when you squeeze on one side to make the rump look smaller, somehow the nose gets bigger. In short, our proportions change...like a hallway of wacky mirrors.

Here's what I've noticed lately......I have a bit too much, uh....cushion for the pushin'. Not with me? If I was sporting a camel toe, it would be extra large in proportion to the shrinking body around it. With me yet? I hope so. I'm running out of supra-pubic idioms. So, in the effort to avoid graphic detail at all costs here, I'll leave it at that.

Anyway, what gives? We lose weight on our knuckles, our knee caps, our elbows.....why is it not going away...there? I have a really nice view of that territory with the loss of several of my tummy tires. Trust me, no shrinkage. In fact, the amount of cellulite there is quite impressive.

Not that it would've swayed my decision for the surgery, but is this a situation like the loose skin that is a problem for a plastic surgeon to fix. Have any of you had plastic surgery in that area? And, if the answer is yes....how would one go about asking for liposuction....there? (Talk about a potentially embarrassing consultation, even for a mouthy one like me.)

But, as my husband said once pre-op, "Honey, if you go through with this and lose all of the weight you want to, you're not gonna be happy unless you look fantastic naked." I second that motion. So, with that as my final goal, shall I tell my husband that there's a lot more to landscaping in the future than a waxing? Or, is it too early to make that determination? (6 months out)

Come on, vets, please chime in. How do I avoid looking like I'm smuggling a pillow down the front of my pants in the future?

I can't speak to my own experience yet, but my hubby had the male equivalent of camel toe (whatever that is called!) and it was one of the last areas on his body to lose weight post-op, Not sure why, but it eventually did come off and the "reveal" was interesting..... lol

I've heard rumors about stunning revelations in the male department, technogal...but no evidence of magic at my house, as I'm married to a man that needs to gain weight.....just hoping that the female version is just as positive a transformation. Thanks for replying, by the way....I was hearing crickets and getting a little nervous. :)

LOL! I had just the opposite problem. I seemed to deflate and be left a little... deflated. But, in time, it seems to have evened out a little. I definitely think it's too soon to tell what "shape" any part of you will have. I have found that one month my butt seems droopy then it firms up a bit. I think my boobs will stand the test of time, then I look down and find a bra full of wrinkled skin. Just the other day, I was worried I would have hollow, dead girl zombie cheeks and now my face is looking rosy and healthy. At almost 15 months out and and more or less maintaining for the past few, my body still seems to be continually redistributing itself. All you can do right now is grab yourself a pair of spanx shorts and hope for the best.
