Loose skin after liposuction won’t be a concern for you.
Experiencing loose skin after liposuction is a rare side effect. Because you are young and athletic, your skin is likely supple and elastic, and should respond nicely to a liposuction procedure, shrinking to the more streamlined contours lipo can offer you. Discuss your candidacy and your concerns during an in-person consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon. Best of luck to you.
At your age, and being athletic, the risk of loose skin is low. The risk becomes higher if there is a history of weight gain and loss, with increasing age and certainly with stretch marks.

Liposuction - will my skin sag afterwards
- The answer depends entirely on the quality of your skin and how much fat is removed.
- If you are a normal weight and no stretch marks in the area, your skin is likely to shrink down nicely.
Risks of loose skin after
Greetings,Everyone's anatomy is different, and it's difficult to know or predict what your results will be without examining you. The potential to develop loose skin varies from patient to patient. This determination is based on physical examination.
The factors that can increase your risk of having loose skin after liposuction include too much skin to begin with, poor quality skin, poor healing after the procedure.Some patients have excellent skin tone with minimal laxity and aren’t likely to have difficulty with skin sag. These patients are often younger and are close to their ideal body weight. In this group, liposuction is an excellent treatment option with high satisfaction rates. Based on your description before, it seems that you fit it these group of patients.Have a great day!
