Skin tightening after weight loss - surgery is the way

+1

There is no useful non-surgical skin tightening treatment after weight loss, only surgery really works.  The abdomen usually needs a tummy tuck and a thigh lift can also be doen.  TT's are much more common because the sacr is easier to hide than one from a thigh lift.  An in person exam is necessary to make any formal advice for you.
