Lindsey M. Adams, a 29-year-old Chicago woman, is highlighted in TLC’s newest docu-series “Skin Tight”. After losing 140 pounds through diet and exercise, Lindsey lived with over 20 pounds of loose skin hanging from her size 6 frame. The excess skin left her feeling embarrassed, unmotivated to further her fitness goals, and scared of physical intimacy.
The TLC docu-series follows Lindsey across four cities as three plastic surgeons performed a total of eight procedures in six weeks to remove 20 pounds of excess skin. Each surgery was more excruciatingly painful than next, leaving Lindsey unable to walk or use the restroom on her own as she healed from large incision openings over 3 inches wide.
