I have a dear friend that had bariatric surgery and has lot over 200 lbs but cannot afford the surgery to have her skin removed. We are from Indiana. Is there any help out there??

This is a common problem for patients who have undergone massive weight loss and have coverage for reconstruction.  The multiple procedures are costly for facility, anesthesia, and professional fee.  The best I can suggest is for her to be seen at a university teaching facility, where help may be available.
