In the past year I lost quite a bit of weight and I look much better and healthier.....but as a result I now have stretch marks and cellulite is more obvious. Is there any treatments to make my skin tight and smooth without cutting the skin? Many surgeons say that when someone loses a lot of weight too quickly, the loose skin needs to be cut off. I am scared of cutting things off me because I get scar easily. Please help
Dear Carol Gui Ling,
It depends on how much loose skin you have. If it is minor there are laser tightening treatments which can help. We generally do not like recommend excising of loose excess skin unless absolutely necessary. Furthermore, Asians should try to avoid that surgical procedure as Asians are more prone to keloid scarring and discoloration of the skin.
For cellulite and stretch marks we have found our patients have been satisfied with a few sessions of Fraxel. For a more detailed assessment kindly attach photos of your skin condition to firstname.lastname@example.org
