Q. What is the solution for skin sagging following bariatric sleeve surgery?



Hi doctor,

I have gone through the bariatric sleeve surgery before three years. Now,  my stomach skin is sagging. Please advise me what to do.





Welcome to dr.sitehome.info.

Since you have gone for bariatric surgery, I just want to elaborate the things for better understanding.

  • Skin has to stretch as we move and grow. In the case of weight loss surgery skin shrink and sagged since skin is a incredibly elastic living organ.
  • Attend to your hydration needs. Water is a crucial component of maintaining skin elasticity.
  • From both food and drink, you should be taking in at least two liters of water each day.
  • Two necessary ingredients that keep skin plump and elastic are collagen and elastin.
  • Protein-rich foods such as cottage cheese, milk, legumes, tofu, beans, seeds, nuts and fish as all contain collagen and elastin forming components. As well as oil to help maintain healthy skin.
  • Last options is that you can go for further body contouring surgery.
