What Happened To This Woman When She Lost 200 Pounds 

At the young age of 26, an Australian woman named Tracey Searle already weighed 374 pounds. A combination of depression and bad eating habits had led to many health problems for Tracey. She ended up with asthma, prediabetes, and sleep apnea due to her excess weight. Eventually, Tracey decided she had to make a change and get healthy.


Since she had so much trouble dieting, Tracey began looking at options for weight loss surgeries. After consulting with many medical professionals, Tracey decided to choose a gastric sleeve surgery. In this surgery, about 70 percent of Tracey’s stomach was taken out, leaving her with a stomach that was full after eating just one banana. After the surgery, Tracey had to eat nothing but smoothies for six months, which was very difficult. However, she began to immediately notice positive changes.

As Tracey lost weight, she did not lose excess skin. Though she tried to use collagen supplements and tightening skin creams, nothing helped. Tracey had lost a huge amount of weight, but she still felt self conscious when her saggy skin was revealed at the beach. The extra skin did not just cause an issue because it looked strange; Tracey was unable to run and swim due to the chafing of all of the skin. She had already been through one surgery, but doctors suggested that Tracey go through another.

Tracey had both a 360 lower body lift and some operations on her upper body. These procedures lasted 8 hours, and they can cost up to $20,000. In the surgery, doctors contour the body carefully to remove excess skin without creating noticeable scars. The surgeons also tightened some of Tracey’s muscles that were loose after having to deal with piles of sagging skin Altogether, 24 pounds of extra skin were removed during the surgery.

With all of the lifestyle changes that she has made, Tracey will be able to stay healthy and keep from regaining weight.
