Will I Have Loose Skin After Liposuction?
Liposuction can quickly sculpt the body by eliminating stubborn fat deposits. While Omaha patients achieve a smoother contour and drop a few sizes, there is a chance that a patient’s skin will not contract after fat is removed.
Every patient’s body is different, and it will take time to find out if yours returns to normal after liposuction.
Skin Laxity and Liposuction
Our skin expands when we gain weight, and contracts when we lose it. The problem is that after repeated expanding and contracting, your skin loses its ability to rebound. The best way to think of this is a rubber band that has stretched beyond its limit and eventually snaps. Some of the main reasons that Omaha patients have loose skin after liposuction are:
- Massive weight loss.
The result is extra loose skin that many Omaha patients find problematic. Unfortunately, it is a problem that cannot be corrected with liposuction alone.
How Do I Get Rid of Loose Skin After My Liposuction?
In the same way that some stubborn fat deposits do not respond to diet and exercise, loose skin remaining after a liposuction may only respond to surgical treatment. In this case, a tummy tuck.
The best way to get rid of loose skin is to undergo a combined tummy tuck and liposuction. During this procedure, Dr. Ayoub will not only remove stubborn fat deposits but:
- Remove excess skin.
- Tighten underlying tissue.
- Contour the remaining skin.
By combining these procedures, you will reduce your recovery time and have a much better result once healed.
