What causes sagging skin after weight loss?

Loose skin is essentially the result of rapid weight loss—and though it can happen with weight lost through diet and exercise, it is much more common after weight loss surgery. When weight comes off more slowly, the skin’s elasticity allows it to go back into place. But with rapid weight loss, the skin does not adjust as quickly as the weight comes off and the muscles also remain loose. The same result can occur after pregnancy.

How can we help?

To help you lose the excess skin so that your body matches the person you are inside, we can perform a skin excision, often combined with an abdominal wall reconstruction (a procedure typically covered by insurance) to create a smoother, firmer abdominal profile. We focus on the abdominal region but partner with plastic surgeons who can add on other cosmetic procedures such as arm, thigh, breast and back.

Research shows that cosmetic abdominal surgery after weight loss surgery greatly increases the probability of long-term weight loss success, and most patients feel happier and more confident following the procedure.
