Guest Kellster Posted August 19, 2008 Report Share Posted August 19, 2008 Hey all - I'm 27 and considering LB surgery (very seriously) but I'm nervous about the extra-skin factor. I'm 5'10'', 340 lbs, and I have at least 180 lbs to lose to be at my healthy weight. I've heard that skin is more elastic and more able to shrink along with your body the younger you are. I've also heard that waiting 2 years after you lose a lot of weight allows your skin to do its best to shrink back to where your body is. Does anyone around my age (or any age, really) have any advice/comments about the extra skin? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
