Carls skin reduction surgery

$4,405 of $30,000 goal

Raised by 55 people in 29 months



I've been a big guy since I was young. In 2015 I made the decision to have lap band surgery as my one chance for a helping hand in losing weight. Nothing had every worked for me long term before so this was my final chance at being able to become the person I always wished I was on the outside. 

With the combonation of the lap band surgery, a plant based diet and bucket loads of hard work and will power I managed to drop 90kgs in the first year and have since lost another 10-15kgs, essentaily halving my body weight from 210+kgs to 105kgs. With such dramatic wieght loss comes dramatic excess skin. Its all over me and being realisitc the only solution is surgery to have it all removed.

With "elective" (Trust me, I wouldnt be doing it if i didnt have to) cosmetic surgery comes the huge cost of elective cosmetic surgery. I've been quoted $30,000AUD to have my arms, chest, back and belly skin removed. Later on would be the thighs but they're not priority right now. 

This skin is such a burden mentally and physically. Im trying my hardest to live a healthy, active and fun life but it gets in the way if not physically, then mentally. I wear a medical binder every day of my life to try hold it in place but thats not a long term solution. 

This is something I need to do for myself. I have worked so hard to acheive my goal and its heartbreaking to wake up every day still hating your own body. 

If you can donate I will be forever grateful but if you cant could you PLEASE share my campaign as it will help me out a lot and also might inspire someone else to take control of their life.

I'm so proud to have hit (and exceeded) the $3000 mark! I know I've got a long way to go still but that $3000 will likely cover one entire part of my surgery (hopefully my arms). I could never express how grateful I am for your support and donations THANK YOU!
