There is a common misconception that the faster you lose weight, the more likely you are to have sagging or loose skin. However, this is more dependent upon several factors:
- How much weight you lose
- Your age
- Your genetics
- If you are a smoker
- If you exercise
- If you are compliant with your post nutritional requirements
There are many bariatric patients who never have an issue with loose skin after losing weight. Certainly, keeping up with your nutritional requirements, such as your vitamins and protein supplements, will help with your overall appearance. For patients who are seeking treatment for loose and sagging skin, there are both non-surgical and surgical options available.
