TRAPPED IN THEIR OWN SKIN: TLC'S "SKIN TIGHT" RETURNS FOR A SECOND SEASON

- Season two premieres on Wednesday, March 1 at 10/9c on TLC -

(Silver Spring, MD) - Revealing the severe issues that arise towards the end of a drastic weight loss journey, TLC's SKIN TIGHT returns for a second season on Wednesday, March 1 at 10/9c, following new episodes of hit series MY 600-LB LIFE. Each of the ten one-hour episodes will document the compelling stories of two individuals who have lost massive amounts of weight - but are still ashamed of their bodies and feel trapped in their own skin. The participants will risk everything and entrust Dr. Younan Nowzaradan and other top doctors from across the country for the final step in their journey as they endure skin removal surgery in anticipation of their dramatic reveal at the end of every episode. Season two features 20 people who have lost a total of 4,962 pounds. Additionally, there will be three one-hour special episodes where we'll check in with some of the people from the series to see how their weight has held up since getting the surgery and how their life and perception of themselves has changed.

Skin removal surgeries are never taken lightly, often-times involving a host of complications and occasionally requiring multiple procedures. Ultimately, the results are shocking and leave these individuals not only with a new body, but a new life.

The season premiere will follow Andrew, 31, who went from 502-lbs to nearly 200-lbs. After the birth of his daughter and the end of a damaging romantic relationship, he found himself at a crossroads and decided he needed to make a change. With a commitment to diet and exercise, he was able to lose a lot of weight, but found that all the weight training he did wasn't helping eliminate the tremendous amount of excess skin. Andrew dreams of competing in a natural bodybuilding competition, but more than anything he wants to look and feel normal around his family.

We'll also follow Julie, 39, who went from 331-lbs to 153-lbs. Julie was overweight her whole life, but found herself morbidly obese after having four kids. She underwent gastric bypass surgery which jumpstarted her weight loss, but she is now hiding under pounds of excess skin, causing her to shy away from intimacy with her husband and not allowing her to fully bond with her children. She dreams of being a better mom and wife, but feels like it will never happen unless the skin is surgically removed.
