Skin removal

Are there any programs that could use excess skin from weight loss for medical purposes? If, so how can I find out? Are there any programs that will perform the procedure for the skin?

Human skin that is healthy may be used for research by a University research department (e.g..http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/2008471). Skin used as a skin substitutue for clinical purposes (e.g. acellular dermal matrix) is obtained from cadaver sources.

It would potentially be available through Centers that have Plastic and Reconstructive surgery programs.
