Skin-removal patient Lauana reveals how surgery transformed her life and inspired others | Skin Tight exclusive

Watch an exclusive clip from this week’s episode of TLC’s Skin Tight — as we revisit patient Lauana to see her incredible transformation after skin removal surgery.

The Where Are They Now? episode looks back at several of the most dramatic stories and patients from the show’s first season, including Lauana.

She lost an amazing amount of weight, about 170 plus pounds, but continued to feel unattractive until undergoing skin removal surgery.

Lauana felt that her excess skin was negatively impacting her marriage and her self-confidence. Now we can track her progress post-surgery, and marvel at her complete transformation.

Lauana documented her journey on social media and connects on the episode with a good friend she made while losing the weight and the skin.

Lauana met the friend on Facebook while they were going through the same process. In our clip, Lauana is at the beach in California to finally meet them for the first time face-to-face.

The Skin Tight episode reveals seven of the most compelling characters from the series who are following (or not) doctor’s orders and trying to stick to a healthy lifestyle.

It goes without saying that some have past psychological wounds that are so deep that they have succumbed to their demons from their past and fallen back into old habits.

Find out if Brian, Chantae, Derek, Megan, Tanya and Tim are succeeding like Lauana or if they find themselves back in the operating room.

Skin Tight airs Wednesdays at 10/9c on TLC.
