It can feel almost unfair: you do all the hard work to lose a massive amount of weight, or you undergo the risk and recovery of having bariatric surgery, yet your body betrays you by not just bouncing back into the shape you sought. People who lose weight quickly often experience secondary complications because their skin is so stretched out that it has lost its elasticity and can no longer shrink to the new, smaller size. This leaves you with sagging skin on your belly and chest as well as elsewhere on your body.
What Can I Do to Treat Sagging Skin After Weight Loss?
Dr. York Yates in Layton, Utah, sees patients from around the world who are suffering from sagging, baggy skin after massive weight loss. Patients are also often concerned about stretch marks and surgical scars that may need cosmetic treatment after losing weight. We invite you to visit our Layton offices or arrange an online consultation to discuss the various options.
Tummy Tuck After Massive Weight Loss
When you lose a large amount of weight in a relatively short period of time, your skin simply cannot shrink back into shape. You end up with a large amount of unnecessary skin that requires two procedures: removing excess skin and a body lift.
Breast Lift and Augmentation
When you experience massive weight loss, it can leave your breasts looking deflated and saggy. A breast lift can restore breast shape and extra skin can be removed. Many women also prefer to have implants as well to regain the size and shape of their breasts.
Additional procedures can be done for thighs, your face, your buttocks, and your arms to help restore your body after massive weight loss and help you achieve the look you have worked so hard to achieve by getting healthier and losing weight.
