Removing Excess Skin After Weight Loss


scale.jpgIf you've battled against obesity and lost a significant amount of weight, then congratulations are in order. Weight loss is not easy for most of us, but an appropriate body weight is important for your overall health.

For some people, dramatic weight loss can leave behind a lot of excess loose skin. This article on follows the story of a woman who lost more than 100 pounds. She was thrilled with her weight loss, but "I didn't feel great about the loose skin around my belly. It hung over the waist of everything, even skirts."

So she had plastic surgery to remove 7 pounds of loose skin. You can read more about her journey at

Excess Skin After Weight Loss

If you've experienced a major weight loss, then you deserve a big congratulations! Shedding unhealthy weight makes you less susceptible to chronic illness, and probably makes you feel better about your appearance too. 

But depending on the amount of weight you lost, you may have noticed an unwanted side affect - excess, sagging skin. Your skin may not have enough elasticity to snap back into place after a major weight loss.

Not only can the extra loose skin make your clothes uncomfortable, it can also create some medical problems. All those folds of skin can lead to excessive perspiration and uncomfortable skin rashes. 

If the excess skin is around your waist, then abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) can be done to remove the extra skin and give your mid-section a much tighter appearance. Other procedures can also be done to remove excess skin on your arms, neck and other areas. 

The patient in this before-and-after picture had a major weight loss, and used cosmetic surgery to remove sagging skin.
