    So over the last few years i have gone from about 300lbs down to 175... so now i have a giant skin pouch for a gut, and of course excess skin everywhere else.

    Any former big guys had the same problem? did you end up getting surgery? Im making an appointment next week with my doctor to see what my options are.

    lose the rest of the fat that's still clinging to the skin and it'll go away over time

    some of it might, but there will be skin that will just hang there. there's only so much elasticity in the skin

    Google it...

    What does the surgery does? Do they actually "reconstruct" your skin so it fits with your "new" body? Because from what I see, nipples are like 4-5 inches below where they should normally be.

    Is this surgery expensive?

    I would like to hear, I have the same problem. I believe they just cut off some of the skin and stretch the rest. LOL I would hope the nipples wouldn't move that might hurt =P

    as far as the nipple thing goes...they can def. reconstruct/tattoo your nips and make them look good as new.
    a good friend of mine had the surgery but his nips didnt go anywhere, pretty stellar scars on the insides of his arms though, the other scaring was not noticeable on his abdomen. its an excellent procedure
