It’s a huge accomplishment to lose a significant amount of weight. Your health, your appearance and your attitude have all undergone major improvements. Now that you’ve achieved your weight loss goal, you shouldn’t have to be embarrassed by large amounts of loose skin.
When skin is stretched out of a long period of time, it loses its elasticity. This prevents it from shrinking back to fit the shape of your new, fit physique.
Excess skin can not only be bothersome by making it hard to find clothes that fit right; it can also have a profound affect on your lifestyle – it can limit mobility and create hygiene problems with continual skin-to-skin contact.
The only way to remove excess skin resulting from this kind of weight loss is through surgery. Body contouring surgery involves making an incision, removing excess skin, and suturing the area with fine stitches to minimize scarring. With these types of procedures, scarring is unavoidable. Liposuction may be used in conjunction with some procedures.
