Dealing with Loose Skin After Bariatric Surgery

After weight loss surgery near Houston, you can expect to lose extreme amounts of weight. As you will learn in this video, there are ways you can reduce loose skin leftover where you formerly had tissue and fat.

Bariatric surgery in general causes patients to lose weight, leading in some cases to a different level of sagging skin. To prevent and reduce the amount of sagging skin eat high protein bariatric diet, drink plenty of water, stay out of the sun, use sun screen, and quit smoking cigarettes. If you are dehydrated, your skin will not be able to repair its natural elasticity. For large amounts of hanging skin, consult your surgeon.
