Question for those who've lost a lot of weight
I keep catching parts of those plastic surgery shows on the Discovery Health channel--where people have lost a lot of weight and then end up with so much extra skin they have to have it surgically removed. Or certain "parts" that droop so badly they need to be lifted. ;)
I'm thinking (hoping!) that this happened because they lost it too fast and perhaps didn't exercise enough. Several I've seen had lost weight pretty quickly because of stomach-stapling surgery. One the other day did it with diet and exercise, but lost half her body weight in one year. Maybe some people's skin and underlying tissue just adjust differently.
OTOH, maybe it's bound to happen.
Would be curious to find out what is typical in Real Life--rather than on a tv show that is practically an infomercial for plastic surgeons.
