At Aspira Plastic Surgery and Med Spa, we field questions about all sorts of topics. One such topic is weight loss and its effects. If you’ve lost a lot of weight quickly, you may be experiencing excess skin or sagging skin in areas such as your arms or your belly. Excess skin occurs during and after weight loss because of the elasticity of your skin.
The younger and more elastic your skin, the better it is able to “snap back” to its original shape. Older skin is not as elastic and may have more trouble adjusting to your new size.
