    seeking advice from anyone who has had surgery to remove skin after weight loss

    So wanted to see if anyone has had surgery to remove excess skin after weight loss.

    I've lost about 120 pounds, from 270 to 155. See:

    and I've got quite a bit of loose skin left now, as you can see below:

    I've seen a couple of surgeons and they have said its mostly skin there and will need to have it cut off if I ever want to get rid of it.

    So was wanting to find out from folks that have had this done what the experience was like for you? Has anyone had this much skin and it tightened up on its own eventually? I'm told you can't really exercise it away.

    I know it is pure vanity, but really does bother me right now. I'm almost thinking it looks worse all loose like that than being a bit chubby. Any advice from folks that have had this done would be greatly appreciated!
