Our expert says:
You are a bright shining ***star*** for having lost 40 kg - that is stunning - and nearly a whole other person. You deserve a medal. When anyone has lost as much weight as you have, then loose skin is unfortunately a side-effect. You can certainly consider having a tummy tuck and skin reductions on other areas of the body, but please wait until you have lost all the weight you intend to lose and then have the procedures. You will need to see a Plastic surgeon who will advise what these ops entail and also how much they cost. You can also contact the Secretariate of the Association of Surgeons of SA at: 0860-7874366 to find out which plastic surgeons in which areas do tummy tucks and skin tightening surgery.
