Dr. Mendieta Explains How to Tighten Loose Skin after Weight Loss
Having loose abdominal skin after pregnancy is common, and the skin usually retracts over the next few weeks. This is because pregnancy only stretches the skin over nine months, so its collagen is still intact after pregnancy. When the skin remains stretched for a longer duration, the collagen may get damaged, affecting the skin’s ability to retract and often causes stretch marks. This can happen after significant weight loss.
Besides being unsightly, saggy skin after weight loss can affect your ability to exercise or result in skin breakdowns. Fortunately, we have various solutions for people looking to tighten skin after weight loss. You can tighten abdominal skin, loose skin on arms, loose skin on thighs and even sagging buttocks after weight loss.
Below are some Skin Tightening Treatments:
Skin Tightening Surgery
You’ll find many non surgical recommendations and tips for tightening skin after weight loss. However, skin removal surgery is still the most effective procedure. Skin tightening surgery after weight loss can provide instant results and is usually the best option after a surgically-assisted weight loss. At 4Beauty Aesthetic Institute for Plastic Surgery, we offer personalized abdominal skin tightening treatments and serve anyone looking for surgical skin tightening in Miami.
Our surgeon, Dr. Constantino Mendieta, has completed many abdominal skin tightening procedures and can help you remove crepey skin on arms, neck, buttocks, thighs, and other places. We’re the skin tightening surgical center to call when you seek abdominal skin tightening, neck tightening treatments, varicose vein treatment, thigh skin tightening treatments and skin tightening treatments for face.
Our surgical skin tightening procedures include the following:
- Facelift: A surgical facelift helps to improve skin laxity, drooping jowels, and displaced facial fat.
- Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty): The best skin tightening treatment for abdomen, involving removing the excess skin
- Lower Body Lift: Involves removing excess skin from the belly, buttock lift and skin tightening for thighs
- Medial Thigh Lift: Involves removing excess skin from the inner and outer thigh area
- Upper Body Lift: Skin tightening for breast and back areas
- Arm Lift (Brachioplasty): Skin tightening for arms
Non Surgical Skin Tightening
Can loose skin be tightened without surgery? The short answer is, yes. We have many non surgical skin tightening and lifting techniques to tighten neck skin, arm skin, facial skin and more. The best non surgical skin tightening includes j-plasma skin tightening, renuvion j plasma and radiofrequency for skin tightening.
We recommend these options for loose neck skin and tightening skin on legs. Our surgeon will also advise you on the best diets and exercise regimens to help expedite the tightening process. Non surgical skin tightening after weight loss can be slow, but we’ll help you determine the best approach.
Does Skin Tighten After Weight Loss?
Yes. Skin can tighten after weight loss, but this is not always guaranteed. If you lose significant weight over a short period, the skin will likely remain forever unless you take drastic measures. Workout, diet and hydration can help. But surgery is the most effective solution to tighten arm skin after weight loss (or to lose the unsightly abdominal skin).
