BROOKFIELD - Mark Leipski used to weigh more than 400 pounds.
"I didn't want gastric. I didn't want them cutting into me," Leipski says.
Mark's change was drastic and fast. He lost more than 200 pounds in two years the natural way. He made martial arts his exercise routine, and works out at American Dojo in Brookfield. Then, reached out to TODAY'S TMJ4 for help.
"What I actually need done, there's these lower panels and side panels that's all hanging skin," Mark said in an interview last year, referring to his skin flaps.
The skin was not just a cosmetic issue - it lead to infections. Mark says it took numerous appeals and TODAY'S TMJ4 getting involved before his insurance company agreed to help with skin reduction surgery.
Now--the amazing results! Mark's skin flaps are basically gone.
Less fat, 15 pounds less skin--now lighter and healthier than ever.
"It's been a long journey," Mark admits.
