Sorry but my meaurement conversion sux. 9 stone is abt what? 120 pounds and you lost abt 30?
I am 50 and lost 100 lbs over about 15 months. After 18 mos of real weight training, the skin tightened up pretty well on the upper arms. The "chest" is great but the boobs are deflated because a lot of fat was lost. Women lose fat in their breasts and face as they age anyway so..... The tummy? Wow, got all the fat out but it left a lot of loose skin. I killed myslef trying to get it to tighten but no go. I am having a tummy tuck in 6 weeks because it is the one area that just won't respond no matter what I do. Everyone is different and many factors contribute to how it will all end up (age, amount of weight lost, whether you smoked or not, how long you hd the extar weight, did you yo-yo and genetics). I will say the upper abs are starting to show and carve out somewhat but the lower area will not improve from exercise so your doctor is right and I consulted with a total of 5 surgeons over the last year and a half and they all said the same yours did. Unfortunately, nothing will fill the breasts in either besides implants. I personally felt 2 years was enough to gauge whether I would need or want surgery. It's really a personal decision.
