Whether it happens due to aging or due to rapid weight loss, most men will eventually have loose skin in at least one part of their body. While loose skin does not pose a health risk, it absolutely does look unsightly and contributes to faster aging.
It used to be that having loose skin was a fact of life, but this is no longer the case. Thanks to plastic surgery, it’s possible to keep a taut, youthful, and more visually appealing physique thanks to loose skin surgery.
What Is Loose Skin Surgery?
Loose skin surgery, also known as excess skin removal, is a form of plastic surgery that gets rid of loose skin and tightens the underlying muscle. Depending on where it’s performed, it can be part of a facelift, a neck lift, or a body lift—or it could be done on its own.
The purpose of loose skin surgery is to allow the patient to remove unsightly excess skin, get an overall more youthful appearance, and also smooth out sagging that is caused by weight loss and aging. Dr. Steinbrech specializes in loose skin surgery and has been offering it in the New York City area for years.
What Should I Expect With Loose Skin Surgery?
This kind of surgery is fairly straightforward and involves your surgeon cutting away excess skin, tightening remaining skin, and then offering aftercare. Most people who have loose skin surgery have relatively quick recovery periods with mild bruising and swelling as side effects.
In terms of effects, you should expect a fairly striking difference. People who undergo loose skin surgery often see a drastic difference in their appearance, confidence, as well as their ability to find clothes that fit. Make no mistake about it; it’s a life-changing surgery with incredibly high satisfaction rates.
