Drs: Botched Skin Removal Surgery + Lymphedema Treatment

The Doctors: Lymphedema After Botched Plastic Surgery

Alicia shared her story on The Doctors, explaining that she first started gaining weight when she had her first child. Over a ten-year period, she got up to 267 pounds. She finally decided enough was enough and eventually lost 142 pounds in just on year. She was left with a lot of loose skin on her thighs and belly, so she saw a surgeon who said he could remove the skin.

The surgeon said he would take some skin off her stomach to “cover it” and make it heal faster, but it didn’t work.
