Hi, everyone! My name is Chris and I'm 22 years of age. About 2 years ago I took it upon myself to change my lifestyle and so I did. I was over 460 pounds, borderline diabetic among other things and now I'm 220 pounds. My goal is to reach 210 before I do the surgery as I have a lot of loose skin after losing over 250 pounds. I have two questions: Will my scars eventually go away completely? Can my gastric band be removed while undergoing the skin removal? Thanks!
