After weight loss surgery and as your weight decreases, you might have questions about the extra skin “hanging around”. Questions like….Will the skin adapt to my new body with time? Does diet and exercise help with extra skin? Does how fast I lose the weight affect my skin elasticity? Is plastic surgery only a cosmetic treatment?
To answer these and any other questions that you might have, we invite you to join with us at our February support group meetings to hear from experts regarding those problem areas where there may be excess skin after weight loss surgery.
