Plus. She lost almost a 150 pounds, and now, this is as big as plastic surgery gets. You will not have any problem with this anymore. Watch her lose 20 pounds of skin. Next, she lost almost 150 pounds and now, this is as big as plastic surgery gets. You will not have any problem with this anymore. Watch her lose 20 pounds of skin. Anyone who loses a 150 pounds deserves congratulations and the chance to wear some sleek new clothes, but for one woman who lost that much weight, her weight reduction created another problem, excess skin. So in order to buy those size A clothes that she really wanted, she had to undergo another operation that literally cut 20 pounds of skin away. __ reports. There is no way to tone a loose flabby tummy like this. You won’t have any problem with this anymore. That is why 40-year-old Lisa Studenroth has come to renowned Pittsburgh cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Dennis Hurwitz, who will tighten and trim away about 15 to 20 pounds to give her a total body lift. This is as big as plastic surgery gets. Lisa was once morbidly obese at 303 pounds. After weight loss surgery, she lost nearly 150 pounds but it left her with all this excess skin. I can exercise about 20 hours a day and it is not going to take care of the loose skin. It is out of her hands. It is now in my hands. Lisa is having liposuction on her thighs and a tummy tuck. Dr. Hurwitz will use excess tissue to give her a breast lift, excess skin and fat will be removed from her arms. Moving to her back, Lisa will get a butt lift. Good morning Lisa. How are you doing? I am good but I am nervous. On the day of surgery, Lisa checked in to Pittsburgh’s Magee-Womens Hospital. Dr. Hurwitz began by marking the fatty areas to be trimmed away. Everything is going to be tightened and shaped. Lisa is wheeled into surgery where Dr. Hurwitz leads a surgical team in the operation. I am expecting her to be thrilled with the result. Eight hours later, Lisa’s arms have been trimmed. These are just a few of the 2000 stitches she received. Then Lisa is wheeled out of the OR. Just two weeks later, Lisa could not believe what she saw. I was just like, Oh my stomach is flat, my stomach is flat. Her once flabby tummy is now tight, her sagging arms firm. Lisa is expected to go from a size 28 to a size 8. So I am single digit, see 8. I am going shopping. Now she can finally shop for the clothes she has always wanted to wear. It has opened up a whole new world for me. All told, the cost of that total body lift was around $50000. Lisa took out a second mortgage to pay for it.
