Loose Skin After Weight Loss
One common problem when we lose a lot of weight – or when we lose weight too quickly – is the appearance of loose skin, especially around our stomach.
In time, some of this skin may recover it’s elasticity, but not all. The only way to get rid of this loose skin is to have it surgically removed.
Weight Loss – Related Plastic Surgery to Remove Excess Skin
There are many types of plastic surgery operations to remove loose skin, such as tummy tuck (abdominoplasty), body lift, panniculectomy, arm-lift (brachioplasty) and male breast reduction (gynecomastia). However, these are serious bariatric type procedures and require close consultation with your doctor.
Non-Surgical Methods to Reduce Appearance of Surplus Skin
There are several skin tightening creams on the market. Unfortunately, while these creams may alleviate the condition, they are not a cure for loose skin.
