About Skin Tight
In each episode of 'Skin Tight,' we follow two people who have lost massive amounts of weight and are about to undergo a full body transformation through skin removal surgery. Each episode culminates in dramatic reveals for both individuals. After hundreds of pounds of fat are shed through methods ranging from gastric bypass surgery to strict dieting and workouts, there is still a constant reminder of someone's once much heavier self. That reminder is skin... and lots of it. In fact, it's not unusual for there to be up to 50 pounds of unwanted, saggy skin drowning the person and hiding the body they have worked so hard for. Surprisingly, some individuals even have 6-packs but they remain hidden under the mounds of excess skin. This 'side effect' of rapid weight loss is so embarrassing to people that they hide it from the world and their loved ones using girdles, wraps, and layers of clothing. It leaves many feeling even more uncomfortable than when they were morbidly obese. It also requires lengthy daily regimens to avoid tearing their skin and avoiding discomfort.
With cutting edge expertise and reconstructive surgical talent, experienced surgeons will cut away massive amounts of skin, creating a full-body transformation. The reveal will not only change each subject's self image but will change their life.
