For some of our Toronto weight loss surgery patients, losing weight is just the beginning. It’s the start of a whole new lifestyle. After the accomplishment of losing all the excess weight, Some patients are left with excess skin on some parts of their body, which cannot be removed with diet and exercise.
Every patient reacts to weight loss differently. Some patients don’t have much or any excess skin after losing a significant amount of weight. Other patients have skin that is naturally less elastic and becomes loose after weight loss.
Excess skin can appear on the arms, legs, abdomen, breasts, or face, and cannot be removed with diet and exercise. While excess skin isn’t harmful, many patients prefer to have it removed.
