Removing Excess Skin After Weight Loss Dr. Travis Stork: You have to acknowledge, we talk about this on the show many times. When you loose all that weight, the one thing you can no matter how much you work out, how much you eat better, you can’t loose that skin. Danny Cahill: So I get this question all the time. Everyone wants to know, “What did you do with all the skin?” I didn’t do anything with it, it’s still there.
