Exactly. I know a woman who was really obese, but she had a gastric band fitted to help her lose the weight. She was told by her doctor that if she didn't lose the weight, she would be dead next year (this was exactly 1 year ago). She dieted a bit to get her weight down for the gastric band to be fitted, then the weight just fell off after that. She was left with loads of loose skin around her stomach and her bo'obs had gone really saggy, too. So she had a boo'b lift and a tummy tuck, which I personally feel she had a perfect right to do. She's since had the band removed, and now maintains her weight by eating healthily and exercising.
