We are not going to lie - Yes, losing a lot of weight can sometimes leave you with some saggy or crepe skin, especially when the weight comes off quickly as it does post-gastric sleeve surgery. There's no quick fix that can get rid of extra skin after your weight loss, but you should keep seeing natural improvements over time. But let’s stay on the positive side, you will no longer be obese, and a little skin will be a drop in the ocean to how you will look and feel overall!

You can though start helping with the firming process from day one of your surgery (post-recovery) with collagen supplements and some great firming lotions used daily. Gentle core exercise can also aid in toning the skin. Sit ups, push ups and squats etc. are recommended (and yes you will have the energy for this post-surgery).

Typically people will experience some loose skin on their tummy’s, bottoms, inner thighs, and upper arms (your bat wings) and ladies, those boobs are going to lose their gusto too but most naturally come back to a ‘normal’ shape and size in time.

In rarer cases, of people losing dramatic amounts of weight can end up with what is called an apron belly, and this may need further surgery, but having spoken to several of our patients, this is very rare, and some have gone back to ‘normal’ straight away and others are simply more than happy with the results of the gastric surgery undertaken with us alone. Most patients with this skin issues just use good underwear, and body shapers, making them more comfortable, both physically and emotionally.

If you want to discuss any of this in more detail, please do get in touch with our team of professional patient advisors who will be more than happy to offer guidance for starting your weight loss journey with us.
