Loose Skin Again After Skin Removal Surgery?
- Asked by marykay1974

I had skin removal last year. I had gastric bypass 4 years ago. I have noticed that I am getting back my loose skin around my middle and especially my back. Is there anything I can do at home to help tighten it back up? I've been through a lot to get this skin back again. Thank you so much.
Loose Skin after Surgery
Congratulations on your significant weight loss! Unfortunately, with that weight loss also comes loss in skin elasticity. It is not unusual for patients who have had significant weight loss to require multiple operations to achieve their final results. Unfortunately, there is no "non-surgical" way to improve the loose skin. Further skin excision may be very helpful in achieving your goals.
Talk to your surgeon about your options.
