Former Fattest Man Urges Doctors for another Operation to Lose Extra Skin

Former Fattest Man Urges Doctors for another Operation to Lose Extra SkinPaul Mason, a 51- year-old from Ipswich, was earlier deemed fattest man of the world. In 2010, he underwent an operation to lose more than half of his original weight.

He was 70 stone before the operation and he came down to 25 stone after it largely cutting down the size of his stomach. After the operation, doctors suggested that he needs to keep his weight stable for about two years to get another operation to get his extra skin removed.

Two years are over and the man wants to undergo it now. He said that he is facing many problems due to extra skin on him as his skin behind his knees is getting split and causing him pain. Before he lost his weight, he ate some
20,000 calories a day.

It is said that it happened due to eating disorder which was caused by sorrow after the death of his father. However, the man is heading towards a normal life now. His subsequent surgery will cost him around £37,000.

The surgery shall be aimed at removal of extra folds of skin on his body. "I was ashamed to be called the fattest man in the world because I knew I'd got myself in a hell of a state", he expressed explaining his ordeal before the surgery.
