I want to pull up that before-and-after picture one more time because despite losing over 300 pounds you’re still carrying I don’t even know how much in the way drew of excess when you have this significant weight loss tweet we know that excess skin that is left after the weight loss can be a big problem clearly in these photos were seeing that you have a significant degree of that yeah it’s a challenge we knew when I started that I might have some of the skin if I lost the weight you know because we didn’t know if I was gonna actually make it through all this but I never imagined it would be as much as it is well we as plastic surgeons we deal with this subject people that have lost a lot of weight and and dealing with eliminating tightening that loose skin I honestly have to say this is one of the more significant amounts because you had such a dramatic weight loss and thank you for taking that video because we talk off and on the show excess skin until you see it you don’t realize how big of an effect that can have on your quality of life well we reached out to plastic surgeon dr. Michaels arabe he is in our front row and Doc II or something you’d like to share as a plastic surgeon treating patients who’ve had weight loss and have this tremendous amount of excess skin it’s something that I focus on and on behalf of myself and a very good friend and colleague of mine dr. Daniel Barrett we’d like to meet with you and assuming that you are a good surgical candidate we would like to offer you free plastic surgeries I know that doctors Robbie this is something that he is an expert at the post weight loss skin skin reduction surgery you’re in the best of hands and just got a promise both of you that you’re gonna come back if you would like to do the surgery and and how you’re doing at that point oh of course excited you know I just you you when you used to be a big your whole life you know my biggest goal the thing I’ve always wanted the most was just to be able to function and move and look like a normal person and put on clothes like a normal person and you lose all this weight and as you’re losing it you learn as it goes down and your body shape it’s not changing as much as you expected it to and you get to the end of it and it’s like well I still have to deal with all this every day you know and to maybe not have to deal with that and to be able to experience things like a normal person and in every sense this is a blessing you’ve earned this thank you and incidentally John mentioned how important a support community is we’ve actually started a weight-loss community on our Facebook page here at the doctors because again you want to be surrounded by others who are going through the same journey to motivate one another and someday if you’re out there and you’re thinking about taking that first step if this guy right here lost 300 plus pounds putting the effort every day we all can do it so kudos to you my friend thank you you

  1. I'm not that big but am worried when I lose weight that I will have a little apron of belly! Is there no way at all of tightening it as I lose weight?

  2. He’s a handsome man. I’m so happy that he got out of that bed and started moving. He’s done a phenomenal job with his weight loss.

  3. I HATE people who show no gratitude. Not one thank you came out of his mouth when the surgeon offered the free surgery. It was almost like he expected it to happen. That surgery they offered to do for free would have been thousands of dollars, and not one thank you. Obviously when he lost the weight, he also lost his ability to be grateful and show appreciation. What a jerk.

  4. I've lost over 55lbs and have excess skin and it sucks 😭 No matter what anyone says, skin does not bounce back from losing weight and or in some cases women being pregnant and the belly stretches the skin and it doesn't go back 😭

  5. Didn’t he lose this weight at the camp transformation center!?? I myself have lost 95lbs through them! I started my journey nov 2015 with the camp! Life changing!!

  6. Biggie, you look great!! I also had wait loss surgery 8 yrs ago and lost 150lbs I know how frustrating having loss skills. My biggest issue was going to the beach and trying to find a swimsuit that I could hide my loss skin. 👙🤷🏻‍♀️ Congrats!! on your skin removal surgery. 👩🏻‍💻

  7. Soaking body in hot bath with a 1/4 cup of pine pollen once a week while drinking 1 tablespoon orally with warm water daily. Might help.

  8. if you undergoes extreme weight loss. it is quite hard to maintain unlike the normal skinny person. I am overweight before close to obese and now normal. but i exercise daily or 5 times a week and also less eating compared to my friends in school who were born in normal weight,it is quite hard because you cannot go back eating your favorites again.

  9. tears falls down my cheeks with happiness. you got really lucky. i was very sad i could not do enything for you.. since i dont have much money. good luck again. post us photos after your surgery. would love to see you after…

  10. Ok,Ew. I clicked this by accident. But im happy for him both for weight loss (because yahknow,health reasons) and for the surgery. Hes handsome, But ew.

  11. Im trying to lose weight but I can't stop over eating Idk to do I Guess ill just be over weight I don't really care anymore

  12. Amazing…I wanna lose weight but im not sure how much. I get obsessed with thing when I start doing them so im afraid ill do that with losing weight and probably go a bit over board with it and lose more then needed.

  13. Yeah, that what happens when you just have all the fat sucked out of you instead of actually working out

  14. his fault for eating so much. let this be a sign to him and anyone of their past. just like how criminals have irremovable foot stamps, fat people who lose their weight should be denied any excess skin removal operations.

  15. This guy went to my gym and used their program to get those results. Google The Camp Transformation Centers. It’s the real deal!!!

  16. first of all that's just such an inspiration…..
    how ever no offence byt his chest looks like my grandma's boobs

  17. hole crap that is lot a weight and he is amazing for sharing. I hope this guy is doing good and love to see a update

  18. And this is the very reason some of us may choose not to lose the weight. Not all of us are lucky enough to go on a program like The Doctors and get the necessary surgery to remove all that excess. Plastic surgery for most things isn't cheap at all. It can cost way more than some of us can afford in a lifetime. And having and living with excess skin comes with medical problems all it's own. One being constant fungal infections and the perennial problem of body odour. And on top of that even if you can afford it, there's all those plastic surgery horror stories. Surgeries that left people messed up for life

  19. 👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽

  20. Damn, I wish I was as lucky as him to receive free excess skin removal. After losing 60kg+ (130lbs+) I have even less confidence in my self image to the point where I gave up lol. (Didn't go back to gaining it though, just stopped trying to lose it. Not good, I know. But it's whatever)

  21. Want to see how this surgery will improve his life, he looks like he has 20 pounds of skin that is not necessary. has to be uncomfortable for him. Good Luck!!

  22. He lost the weight too fast!  if he would have lost it much slower the skin would not have been as extreme.

  23. That's what happens when you lose a lot of weight via calorie restriction and not intermittent fasting – you don't have any autophagy to recycle the useless skin.
