The Doctors look back 2 of our most amazing transformations, Amanda and Ruth, who both had surgery to remove their excess loose skin after both having dramatic weight loss journeys.
Amanda lost a whopping 150 pounds and proudly showed off her loose skin on her social media accounts. Despite being proud of her skin, it was causing her rashes and sores.
Plastic Surgeon Dr. Andrew Ordon and his colleague Dr. Ritu Chopra performed the equivalent of doing three “tummy tucks” in her abdomen area. After her transformation, she shared that she hopes her journey will help inspire others on their path of fitness and healthy living.
"Basically, just love yourself at every stage of whatever journey you may be on, whether it’s a health journey, a body-positivity journey – your whole life,” she said.
Like Amanda, Ruth had a dramatic weight loss of 180 pounds and was left with excess skin. Plastic Surgeon Dr. David Shifrin offered to do her skin removal surgery, at no cost to her. During the surgery, skin from her back, sides, abdominal, and thighs was removed and Dr. Shifrin said she would able to comfortably wear a bikini after the procedure.
He joined The Doctors to show off her new post-surgery body and said, “Oh my goodness, I feel amazing... my stomach has always been the biggest part of my body and now it's the smallest and I'm loving my results.”
