: I am a 21 year old male who has recently lost about 90 pounds. While I feel great, I have so much loose skin around my midsection. I feel like I have done so much hard work and Im getting gipped bc I still can't take off my shirt without being embarassed. I inquired about surgery but they told me it would be around 8000-10000 dollars and there is no way a college student can afford that! Does anyone have any suggestions for me?????
Good for you! I know how you feel. I went through the same thing, although I was older. My Dr. said it would take up to three years for the skin to shrink. I did notice some change over the year I was thin, but I got pregnant and never got a chance to see if he was right. You are so young, you have a good chance! However, you might contact a burn unit. I read about a guy who called to donate his skin, and the victims family paid for it. Good Luck!
