After completing gastric bypass surgery, this patient successfully lost 100 lbs. Due to excess skin after weight loss, she suffered from chronic rashes which made her an excellent candidate for a panniculectomy. This photo was taken only three weeks after surgery to show the healing process, but her scar will continue to fade over the next year.
