Cosmetic Surgery Can Remove Loose skin After Dramatic Weight Loss

Excess skin is a problem facing people who undergo rapid weight loss, especially following surgery, like gastric bypass. More people are opting to undergo this kind of surgery, as it’s considered safer and more effective than it once was. About 200,000 adults in the U.S. undergo metabolic/bariatric surgery every year.

You may have heard about the story of one Paul Mason, the former “world’s fattest man.” The former postman out of the U.K. went down from 980 pounds to a relatively svelte 350 pounds after undergoing gastric bypass surgery.

His weight may have dramatically decreased, but now Mason is seeking plastic surgery. Why? To get rid of the excess skin left over.

Not everyone who loses weight is going to experience problems with sagging skin. Various factors determine the elasticity of your skin following weight loss, such as how fast you lose the weight, how much weight you lose rapidly, your age, and how much the skin has stretched. The biggest factor, however, is genetics. Some people’s skin will naturally bounce back even after massive weight loss, if they’ve got the genes for it.

Top 10 Bariatric Tips From the RealSelf Community

Community support is often crucial with any weight-loss journey. Thanks to the power of the Internet, people are increasingly finding support entirely outside their local networks, and meeting with like-minded people online. The cosmetic surgery website RealSelf.com is one such place, where users support each other through their struggles. A recent post on the site highlighted 10 tips from various community members who have undergone gastric bypasses, a form of bariatric surgery that often precedes body contouring surgery.

1. Follow your doctor’s advice. Quit smoking, follow a set exercise routine, take your medication regularly, and whatever else your doctor recommends. Your body will thank you.

2. Do an honest self-evaluation. Sometimes it helps to take a close look at your body, habits, and routines. What do you want, what do you need, and what can you leave behind?

3. Have the right attitude. My best advice is to be practical but optimistic – “keep your head in the clouds and your feet on the ground.”

4. Drink a lot of water. H2O is beyond important. Put away those sugary drinks and pick up some cold, refreshing water, especially when exercising.

5. Don’t rush back into eating. After gastric bypass surgery, patients need to abide with liquid and puréed foods for some time. It’s important to ease the transition back into regular eating habits.

6. Change your eating habits for good. “Say to yourself, this food does not taste as good as skinny feels,” says RealSelf user Cindy.

7. Learn coping mechanisms. “You have to see someone and really spend serious time talking about what to expect when you have slimmed down,” says Cynthia J. “You will still have your issues with self worth but you will learn to have your coping mechanisms.”
