Im 5'3ft and I was 223lbs at my biggest. I'm down to 135lbs. I've worked my butt off with different exercise routines but after all that weight loss now I have some saggy skin. I'm considering surgery to remove it as exercise has not helped with saggy skin these past 3 years. If I was your gf/wife, would you support or be against it, and why?
P. S. I've had 2 kids and never been skinny. I just want to know what my body is supposed to be like. I feel I deserve it.

Some will tell you that it will fix itself over time. But that is often not true. Especially if you are basically past the growing age, where corrections seem to work well. But the excess skin on older people (older than the real young ones) is not forgiving. And as you get even older, even if you are not losing weight or build, your skin gets looser. Just a sad fact. I would say in your case it is probably a lot of skin (based on the amount of weight you lost) so if you can afford it, enjoy the luxury of the surgery.1
