For men and women who have lost a great deal of weight, either through diet and exercise alone or maybe as the result of weight loss surgery, they often find they are left with folds of sagging skin. Often, they are as unhappy with the appearance of the body as they were before they lost the weight.

Mr Sudip Ghosh offers a range of plastic surgery options to deal with excess skin post weight loss.
