I do not have a printer or camera. My lips tongue throat makes it hard to talk. Ask me about my flakey thin very wrinkle skin.
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
I read they have skin that matches human skin. That older people lose the thickness of the skin especially when under weight.

You are right in one way that as the people become old the skin becomes very thin and as they lose weight it becomes even more wrinkled and loses its elasticity.May I know what your query is exactly?

I would like to be treated with new skin on my body and my lips.My lips are also very thin and cracked. What in my position do think it would cost as an estimate. I have 2 insurance. Would I have to go into a hospital to get it done? Would having new skin help me? Can I see the doctor soon? I have very little hair left also. Please help me.kathryn karlin

I am not a dermatologist with this kind of expertise. Will opt out so that another expert experienced in this can help you.

This is Dr. David

I see the other expert has opted out

you can't get a total skin transplant

your skin being thin can be due to your weight loss and not getting in enough nutrition and protein.

protein and oils and fats and vitamin D in your diet help to keep your skin healthy.

you need to see a primary care doctor and get a calorie count of what you eat

and find out why you are loosing weight

are you having a hard time cooking for yourself?

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
