After significant weight loss, loose skin may be the barrier between many patients showing off their hard work. Two-thirds of patients who have undergone massive weight loss are left with loose or hanging skin.
This is especially common in individuals whom have undergone weight loss surgery such as gastric bypass or a lap band procedure, but can also happen to people who have lost weight without surgery. Treating this skin can improve a person’s quality of life and confidence.
The folds of the skin must be properly washed and moisture as to prevent rash or infection. Sometimes, surgery is the only way to remove excess skin.
A post-bariatric surgery can contour skin and give the body a new shape.
