Skin removal following weight loss surgery
Body Lift

Daughter had weight loss surgery in Oct 09. Lost a lot of weight (150)and is miserable, can hardly walk because of hanging skin. Also, legs are very heavy, painful and cold. Don't know how much more of this pain she can take. She falls because of the pull weight on her legs. She is not going to make it thru the summer. What should she do???

I lost 120 lbs and had a breast lift and tummy tuck with a doctor who specializes in after weight loss cosmetic surgery. Contact me privately and I'll give you his prices and contacts at bcded@bellsouth.net.

Wow, she's falling and her legs are cold? Never heard of that, but the excess skin could be helped with a lower body lift. There is a message board devoted to that subject on this site, good luck!
