That : That would be incredibly rare. I can understand your concern, so be sure that your doctor understands your concerns as well. If, under very rare circumstances that too much skin is removed, there are options for repair. Remember, initially it may look a little "tight", but our skin continues to lose elasticity over time and to "relax", so this will resolve.
