Can you imagine what it’s like going through your teenager years and then adulthood having to deal with loose skin all over your body. Being asked by your doctor at 15 years old, if you’ve had children, because you have drooping breasts. That’s just one of many situations I’ve tried to keep positive about.
Hopefully my situation is one you understand and can help with, whether contributing, or even just sharing my page. It all helps and I thank you for your support in any way you can help.
I have worked hard on my health and fitness and have lost over half my bodyweight. I’ve finally overcome obesity, having gone from 317.7lbs (22st 10lbs/ 144.1kg) at my highest weight and I now weigh 136lbs (9st 10lbs/ 61.7kg). But now have loose skin all over my body and I am having to have surgery to have a breast lift, thigh lift, arm lift and lower body lift to remove my loose skin. I post every day about my weight loss journey, transformation and how I overcame obesity on my Instagram / Twitter / Youtube @vsgowluk. My surgery will be done in two or three parts.
Because the NHS are unable to help and private surgery would cost £32k, I am having to go to a board-certified plastic surgeon in Lithuania, where it will cost £13k in total. If I raise more than this amount, I will remain in the UK. I need your help to get there and finally no longer have loose skin. Although I do try to keep positive about my body, I've been dealing with loose skin ever since I hit puberty. It influences my day to day life and how I interact in relationships and hope to get the help I need.
Thank you for taking the time to read and your contribution.
