A woman who lost an incredible 14 stone in less than a year has shared images of her incredible transformation following major skin removal surgery.
Simone Anderson (25) underwent gastric sleeve surgery in New Zealand in 2014 in a bid to tackle her weight and shed 202lbs in eleven months.
Despite her incredible transformation, the dramatic weight loss left Simone with uncomfortable excess skin which greatly affected her confidence.
The blogger underwent a nine-hour surgery in 2015, which included an abdominoplasty, bra line back lift, breast lift and augmentation and shared a photograph of the results with her followers this week, 88 weeks after the procedures.
“I have completely changed my lifestyle, diet and exercise. I am thirty three weeks post opp abdominoplasty, bra line back lift, breast lift & augmentation,” Simone wrote on Instagram.
“Basically most of my loose skin has been removed apart from that on my upper thighs and bottom.”
The human body is incredible that's for sure, the places it has taken me, the huge changes it has witnessed and how much it continues to change still blows my mind. In the photo on the left I had already lost 56kg, and now the photo on the right is after losing 92kg. So there is an apx 36kg difference between the two photos!
“The human body is incredible that's for sure, the places it has taken me, the huge changes it has witnessed and how much it continues to change still blows my mind,” she said.
The Auckland woman has racked up more than 136,000 followers on her Instagram, which has documented her weight-loss journey. Simone revealed that the skin removal surgery lifted a final weight off her shoulders.
“When I was sports training I would need to wear compression pants under sports tights to keep it all in place and stop it from bouncing up and down. It would rub and cause bleeding under the skin and I would get belly button infections, it was just incredibly uncomfortable.”
