SWEETHOME SAID:

I had gastric by-pass surgery 4 years ago and I have lost 170 lbs. My problem is all the loose skin. From my feet to neck. Because I lost my job and I’m on Medicare, I can not find a doctor to remove the skin. What should I do ?

    If the skin is causing medical issues, you should be able to at least have the panniculectomy. Most of the other procedures would be considered cosmetic and would not be covered by any insurance.
