Zach, who lost over 300 pounds, is back to show off his new body after having his excessive skin removed.
When he visited The Doctors, he had transformed from 460 pounds in 2014 to an amazing 150 pounds two years later following a gastric bypass. Zach was left an excessive amount of extra skin following his dramatic weight loss. With the help of plastic surgeon Dr. Thomas Trevisani, approximately 10 pounds of hanging skin was removed from his body.

When he looks in the mirror, Zach says he now sees a different person. “I see the gentleman that I was 10 years ago. I see the person that I was growing up and I am proud of myself… I am full of joy,” he continues.
