  • Saving your skin's elasticity is one of them: The more quickly you lose your weight, the more likely you are to have a problem with excess skin.

  • If you watch plastic surgery makeover shows on TV you have surely seen a few patients who have had surgery to "repair" their skin after a significant weight loss.
