When you begin your weight loss journey with the LAP-BAND® Procedure, you will inevitably have many questions. One concern you might have–especially if you have a larger amount of weight to lose–is excess skin. Depending on how fast a bariatric patient loses weight, their skin might not be able to adjust accordingly. After undergoing weight loss surgery, there are numerous changes that take place, including diet changes, exercise routine tweaks, and possibly plastic surgery. When a person loses a large amount of weight, there can be excess skin that does not rebound on its own. Often, the only way to get rid of this skin is through cosmetic surgery.
