Detailed Answer:
Hi and thank you so much for this query.

I am so sorry to hear about this disproportionate sizes and all the inconveniences that this has caused you. Your weight seems okay for your height and as such this is more of a problem of how your weight is distributed than how much you weigh. The best approach to this would be to consult a plastic surgeon to see what options are available for correcting this and what the various chances of success are. Weight loss would certainly not offer great help here.

In all, consult a plastic surgeon for evaluation and management.

I hope this helps. I wish you well. Thank you so much for using our services and feel free to ask for more information and clarifications if need be. Also, if you can send a picture of yourself, it would be helpful to me.

I am two years out from bariatric surgery. When I eat a meal, sometimes, I have to lay down because my heart starts beating so hard. What does it mean when I can feel my heart beating by putting my hand on my chest? It often takes up to 2 hours until the heart calms down.
