Plastic surgery

Hello, I'm 11 years post RNY. I lost over 140 pounds and I've successfully maintained my weight loss even after 2 pregnancies. I've suffered from back pain for the last several years. I've gone through months of PT. I think my pain may be stemming from the extra skin I carry on my lower body. Has anyone else had this issue? Did plastic surgery help and did your insurance pay for it?

Thank you!

Although I am not carrying any excess skin, I sympathize with it being painful. Usually to get insurance to pay to remove it, you need pictures and evidence of doctor appointments and medicine to treat infections from the excess skin. But check with a plastic surgeon and see what can be done. I paid for my own tummy tuck, but had not had any skin infections. If possible check with the surgeon who did your weight loss surgery for a plastic surgeon who works with weight loss surgery patients.
