When I saw the below *graphic photos last week from UK news sites, I was not surprised -- and considered sharing them to the blog -- but I did not. However they have made them here to the good old US of A and it appears that this is what Mr. Paul Mason of England would desire - is publicity.
Mr. Mason was A Man Of Very Large Size. :)
He nearly reached 1000 pounds at his highest weight, and with the assistance of bariatric surgery he is now down an amazing 644 pounds and left with a massive amount of excess skin. This is obviously quite a feat -- and as a WLS patient yourself -- I am sure you can imagine the skin issues are inexplicably awful.
If you recall, (as maybe one or two of you out there in the interweb do...or not?) I started blogging (... in 2005) hoping to save any pennies I earned doing so for "plastic surgery fund!" (No, I never had any plastics.)
Reconstructive surgery after massive weight loss is not inexpensive, nor easy. I completely understand Mr. Mason's reasoning for throwing his photos out there.
And, I'm throwing them here. Maybe someone will take him on.
