I see that Dr. K is your surgeon. He can fix the "loose skin". Dr. K is awesome. I inquired a little about the loose skin. I was 336 lbs now 140 lbs. DS July 27 2010. I promised myself when I started the quest for weight loss surgery that I would be blessed with weight loss results. I do have what I consider a little tummy flipflap . I carried alot of weight in my thighs and arms. My upper arms have alot of loose skin. I always wear at least 3/4 sleeves to cover.
I have a friend who had the gastric bypass years ago then she had plastic surgery on her thighs, tummy, breasts. Unfortunately she has gained her weight back and in medical financial debt. She gave me all her small clothes . She is heart broken! I told her about Dr. K and his ability to reconstruct former weight loss surgery patients.
All this to tell you, at this point in my life!! Even if I have wings of loose skin and could take flight if the wind blows, I have chosen to BE BLESSED!!! I Thank the Lord I am not the weight I used to be. LIFE changing: I can: kayak, ski, bicycle, downhill mountain bike, bought a motorcycle. I am trying to keep up with my 16 yr. old son and loving every minute of it. It is so awesome to be able to join in the fun instead of watching him on the bench! I don't have to ask for an extention for the seat belt when flying airplane.
You do have options to get the loose skin taken care of and Dr. K can take care of it also.
My own opinion is the loose skin is the very least of my worries, I am not 336 lbs anymore!!! I am BLESSED and Happy!!
