    It depends on the amount of time you are planning to loose all this weight. If you make a sudden drop in weight and dont allow the skin time to retract back to its normal state then you will have a lot of loose skin.

    I have seen people loose over a 100lbs but they did it safely over the course of a few years and their skin was fine. I have also seen people loose 100lbs in a short amount of time and they have a ton of loose skin hanging over their belt line.

    your skin loses its elacticity with age. so the younger the better
    one of my co workers had a gastric bypass at the age of 20, he lost over 100 pounds and the skin is not as bad as you would think. i know of another person just a few years older than the latter and his skin hangs in an awful way. i would call a specialist and milk them for some info. someone who performs GPs would definetly be able to network you to a plastic surgeon familiar with this sort of thing.
