“You have so much excess skin here, yards and yards of skin that are going to have to come off,” Dr. Shifrin explains to Ruth on the day of her surgery. “You’re going to come out looking terrific.”

Dr. Shifrin and his team set to work, removing skin from Ruth’s back so the curve of her waist is defined. “She could wear a bikini in the summertime and no one would see these scars,” he comments. Then they remove side, abdominal, and thigh excess skin as well.
