Yes! There is an answer for you! I had the exact same experience and although I still have slightly dry eyes and sleep with a mask and use Tears Naturale occasionally, I can close my eyes now when I sleep. I went to Dr. Kamel Itani at... READ COMMENT

I have read that Dr. Jeffrey Kenkel at University of Texas Southwestern in Dallas has a lot of experience in this. You might want to look at his website. He has helped several people who have lost lots of weight and have excessive skin... READ COMMENT

Ringing can be caused by antibiotic use particularly penicillin type antibiotics. I have had tinnitus since my explant surgery over a year ago. You are lucky you have such a nice result. I was deformed, lost my hearing and will live... READ COMMENT

My explant surgery was terrible. My breasts are badly scarred around the areola, are crooked and dented, and I wouldn't dare let another person see them as they are so ugly. Moreover, my health has deteriorated because of and since the... READ COMMENT
