The Doctors: Excess Skin & Lipedema After Weight Loss
The Doctors introduced Audrey, who lost 230 pounds, but instead of feeling great, she wishes she never lost the weight because of all her sagging skin. When she was 16-years-old, she lost her father and turned to food. About 15 years ago, she weighed 464 pound and while cleaning, her knees locked up, causing her to be stuck on the floor for hours until her husband finally came home. She underwent bypass surgery and started walking every day and eating differently until the weight fell off. She was thrilled at first, but now she experiences painful sagging skin that has ruined her self confidence. Audrey’s family so badly wants her to be happy and confident like she was before.
