FREE excess skin removal

I don't think so.
This one is along the lines of 'forward this email and Bill Gates will give you $150.'
My surgeon told me in 1999 that they did not want the skin he would be removing during my tummy tuck. He said it's usually not good skin -- stretched, sometimes has fungal infections -- and that it was a nice idea, but no.
Another "don't we wish" fable.
Our overstretched skin is not good for donation. It's just too damaged.

This surgeon tells how live skin donations are becoming popular because the lack of cadaver skin that is available. You may want to look into this and see if you may be interested. I am working on saving the money to have the skin removed and hoping insurance pays a part of it. Most insurance won't pay unless there are infectons and rashes that are considered a health issue.

my skin is in a great state - i lost weight..... but no stretch marks, skin cancer or skin related diseases ....lost weight super young- worked out every day, kept a food journal for 3 years.....have you people noticed that u have lost your weight by bypass procedures? are older-with horrible strech marks, no elasticity and just look funky,to me (that's the truth-sorry) and a lot have had serious health concerns- (helllo?)hence surgery- lost my weight naturally kept if off from 18 till now and im 32..... i look 23. do you really think some kid needs your funky skin????? i stress funky ! if ur trying to get free surgery from donating ur used, "rode hard put to bed wet " goods...ummmm i'd say no thanks. my dad was a fireman for 40 years and my brother was severly burned in a fire as baby. hes undergone 30 plus opperations...(he's 25) do you think he wants the stretched marked, dried up, sagging skin from your fat butt so u can get a free surgery???!!! he'd rather get a balloon under his skin to stretch it so that he might have eye lids as to benifit him sleeping and blinking. i think some of u on here are pathetic and want to use a person or a cause for your benefit! and i say you can suck it! some of u freaking people blow my mind! ..'Oh im so fat! surgery required, oh now im skinny and i was 45 but look 93 , i think i will try to donate my 100 year old looking skin to some poor, sick "kid" to look like a hero, in order to gain a free service...by the way did i say it was ALL ABOUT ME! i must have forgotten- sorry i was thinking about myself!'

I didn't care for her post either but to say she is conceited because she thinks she is hot is going a bit far. It really is okay to have a positive attitude and self esteem.

According to the PS who was at last year's Meet and Greet in Las Vegas, he does arrange to have skin from his surgeries donated.
So someone wants it!
But, no, no one will pay for your PS to get it.
