Skin Excision After Weight Loss
Human skin is an amazing organ capable of stretching to accommodate all the excess fat our bodies store as we gain weight. But where does all that extra skin go when someone loses a great deal of weight, say 50 to 100 pounds? Unfortunately, skin does not go away by itself and it simply cannot shrink enough to return to normal. The only way to lose this extra skin is through surgical removal, or excision. Dr. Crichlow is specially trained and experienced in this procedure.
