Donating Excess Skin?

Answer

These days weight loss surgery has become fairly popular to those who are in medical need or those who can afford it. The problem with the surgery is that you lose the weight but not the skin. Many patients find this excess skin to be as much of a problem as the excess weight was so they have another surgery to remove it. It used to be that the skin was disposed of by the doctor. A new foundation is finding ways to use this skin for other medical needs. So far some things that are done with this skin are hernia repairs, breast reconstruction, and bladder slings.
