Bariatric surgeries, such as the Gastric Sleeve, have become an incredibly popular and effective method for weight loss in the United States. Over 200,000 weight loss surgeries were performed in 2018 and that number will easily be passed in 2019. Unfortunately, this is only step 1 for people who are chasing their dream body. The next step is to address all that loose skin!
How do I tighten loose skin after weight loss?
There are various methods to tighten skin that range from noninvasive subdermal coagulation lasers (RENUVION™) to full body invasive plastic surgeries. After weight loss surgery, plastic surgery is your definitive answer to anybody contouring concerns. Dr. Arian Mowlavi M.D., FACS is an expert plastic surgeon and owner of Cosmetic Plastic Surgery Institute. His total body lift post bariatric procedure is the #1 solution for anyone who has excess skin that looks droopy and baggy following any period of major weight loss.
After a weight loss surgery like a gastric sleeve, areas of concern for ugly, loose skin include the arms (bat wings), upper and middle back (bra rolls), sagging breasts, lower back and flanks (love handles, abdomen (stomach rolls) and the butt and thighs.
It can be disheartening to have a look of saggy and loose skin after you have gone through all the hard work to lose weight.
