Skin removal surgery--what skin can be removed and where are scars?

Scar location

Groin
The scars from skin removal surgery depends on the location and amount of skin to be removed. The more skin that needs to be removed the longer the scar length will be. Scars are usually hidden in inconspicuous locations - along the panty line, the inner arm, groin, or inner thigh.

Im a 23 year old male, 5'6" 190 lbs, if I lose 40 lbs will I have excess skin and need skin removal surgery?

Skin

At your age skin still has good elasticity. You are not going to loose weight in one day. Skin will adjust in most cases. If you replace fat with muscles the skin should not be an issue.

Is it possible to have skin removal surgery on my neck and my stomach area at the same time? I want skin removal surgery for the folds of sagging skin on my neck and flabby loose skin on my abdomen (I've had three children). Is it usual to have two areas

There are plastic surgeons who will perform more than one surgery at a time. You would need a complete medical evaluation by your internal medicine physician first to be sure that you don't have any concerning medical conditions. Then your plastic surgeon can discuss the risks with you. Any time that you perform more than one surgery at a time, it does increase the surgery time and the surgery risk.

Should I undergo skin removal surgery after having a bariatric surgery? I am a fifty-year-old woman and recently had surgery to lose weight. I am very happy to say that all is well and I have been shedding pounds very quickly. However, I have noticed that

The decision to undergo skin removal after weight loss is often a personal one. While some skin problems such as infections in skin folds or extreme overhang makes a procedure medically necessary other issues are more purely cosmetic. Insurance coverage is not available for most of these procedures except the removal of the abdominal apron which is sometimes covered.

This question is misleading. Did you mean skin tag removal? If so, this involves either scissors or a scalpel to remove a protruding piece of skin.
