The Doctors: Loose Skin Removal Surgery After Weight Loss

The Doctors: Extreme Weight Loss

A woman named Ruth lost 180 pounds, after being overweight pretty much her entire life. Ruth shared with The Doctors that it was after her aunt passed away that she decided to lose weight. She lost the first 60 pounds in 13 weeks and showed off her incredible 180 pound weight loss on The Doctors. But all that weight loss resulted in a large amount of loose skin. Dr Andrew Ordon said she would actually be a great candidate for plastic surgery to remove the skin, free of charge thanks to a very compassionate plastic surgeon.

The Doctors were thrilled to welcome Ruth to the stage to show off the dramatic results of her surgery. She looked trim, fit, and was glowing! The before and after photos not only show off a great body, but the beautiful work of a talented cosmetic surgeon! Dr Ordon said it was clearly one of the most dramatic results he’s seen, and Dr David Shifrin said Ruth did a great job at getting her body ready for a strenuous recovery and he’s thrilled with the results.

Because no patient is the same when it comes to removing loose skin, Dr David said it’s important to find the right plastic surgeon who can customize the procedure to fit the patient. Ruth had a lot of extra skin on both her upper and lower abdomen, which is why he had to plan a second surgery to lift the area and give her the appearance he knew she wanted.

Watch the video below to see Ruth’s incredible transformation. What do you think? Pretty inspiring right!
