Following liposuction, loose skin tends to become looser. It all depends on the appearance and quality of the patient’s skin, and everyone is different. Your plastic surgeon should always explain during the consultation for liposuction that the final appearance and tone of the skin is unpredictable. A second procedure is sometimes necessary to remove the excess/loose skin following liposuction. For example, if a patient has liposuction of the tummy and the skin becomes more loose after the fat pockets are removed, it is sometimes necessary to perform a tummy tuck to remove the skin. The same holds true for other areas of the body such as the neck, arms and legs.
