What will I do about loose skin?
Updated: May 18, 2019
This is something not to consider for at least a year after surgery.
Not everyone has loose skin after weight loss surgery. However, for those who do, it is very normal and common to have some loose skin, so don't worry. However, if it makes you uncomfortable for any reason, there are options.
Once you reach your goal weight, schedule an appointment with Dr. Chasen to discuss if you are ready for loose skin surgery such as an abdomioplasty surgery.
Some ways to prepare:
As you lose weight, or when ready, take photos of any rashes or uncomfortable loose skin areas so that we can submit them in a request for insurance approval when the time comes. Although we have helped many patients to have their loose skin surgeries approved by insurance, not all insurances cover this every time or ever. So be prepared to pay by starting to save early.
