Plastic surgery is an option for some.
Depends on wt loss. Excess skin after bariatric surgery depends on several factors, the rate and amount of weight lost, skin tone. It is not dependent on the type of bariatric surgery, per se, although lap band surgery is generally not associated with the degree of weight loss that a gastric bypass is. In cases of excessive skin after weight loss, body contouring may be considered.
