Andy Richardson and brother Paul have a combined weight of half a tonne! Andy, weighing an enormous 42.5 stone, undergoes weight-loss surgery. He is now less than half the man he was.
Julie Festusy, with a BMI of 70, is super morbidly obese. Carrying the excess weight has taken its toll on Julie’s body. She urgently needs a knee replacement but for this operation, she’s been told she’ll need to lose 70% of her weight. A gastric bypass performed by Dr Shaw Somers is her only hope. She’s also desperate to get back to Tanzania to see her husband, but at her current weight, she’s unable to fit in an airplane seat. If she doesn’t have the procedure she’ll end up in a wheelchair for the rest of her life.
Fat Doctor goes on a remarkable journey following the patients of three of Britain’s most sought after weight loss surgeons. It focuses on the obese patients who undergo the operations and discovers why they became obese and the impact life-changing and often life-saving weight loss surgery has on their lives. We find out what their lives are like now and how this has affected their physical, social and psychological lives.
