Your Skin After Weight Loss Surgery
Fortunately, vertical sleeve gastrectomy is performed using a minimally invasive technique called laparoscopically. Scarring tends to be minimal, and single-incision is available with many bariatric surgeons. Unfortunately having excess skin for a long period of time can create less-elastic skin around areas like arms, thighs, legs, and stomach.
Loose, Sagging, and Excess Skin
Sagging skin may appear due to the rapid weight loss after gastric sleeve. Depending on the skin’s elasticity, excess skin may need to be removed with plastic surgery procedures.
Excess skin varies patient to patient, usually being influenced by age, size, amount of weight loss, and period of time being overweight.
*Remember, individual results may vary and these result may not be typical.
