After I Iose my weight, will I have excess skin?
Some, but not all patients, may have excess skin after surgery. Whether this occurs depends on a host of factors, including, the patient’s weight prior to surgery, the amount of excess weight loss, the patient’s age and genetics. For patients with concerns of excess skin, plastic surgery after the gastric sleeve can be a highly effective option. We typically recommend that patients wait 12-18 months from their surgery to ensure that their weight has stabilized.
