Understanding Post Weight Loss Surgery
There are many problems that can come with excess skin from drastic weight loss. Daily activities can become difficult due to a lack of mobility, stunted by unwanted skin folds. For example, getting dressed may become much tougher than it should be. Hygiene can become a problem due to sweat build-up and infections can also breed through this problem with sores and rashes becoming more prominent.
These logistical and medical problems can be demoralising, especially after you have done incredibly well to lose a large amount of weight. This is why removing the excess skin folds from your body may be a positive step towards your overall goal of looking and feeling healthier. By contouring the body and removing excess skin, you may increase your mobility and gain better overall hygiene.
