This is the moment surgeons lifted a 17lb flap of SKIN from the stomach of a mom-of-three after she shed half her bodyweight - just in time for her wedding.

Olga Hernandez, 41, shared the revealing footage to give an insight into her weight loss journey, which has seen her shrink to a slim 192lbs (13.7stone).

The palliative nurse tipped the scales at 405lbs (28.7stone) at her heaviest point and had a gastric sleeve to reduce the size of her stomach.
