What Can I do About Sagging Skin?

You’ve done the difficult work to lose excess pounds, but now your skin is sagging. While having skin that feels too large for your changed body can feel like you’ve traded one problem for another, more permanent one, there are solutions. If you don’t feel willing or able to embrace your body as it is, looser skin and all, we would love to help.

At Delta Medical Weight Management Center in Southaven, Mississippi, Dr. Ulric Duncan and his team provide Morpheus8® body-contouring treatment for skin tightening after weight loss. Read on to learn more about skin sagging, including possible complications and ways to turn it all around.

Problems caused by sagging skin

Loose and sagging skin can be more than a cosmetic concern, potentially leading to deep emotional and physical health problems. Issues associated with sagging skin include:

Treatments for sagging skin

There is no magical cream or medication that can do away with sagging skin, but increasing your muscle mass through appropriate exercise can help to some degree. If you still have loose skin you’d like to minimize after that, effective options include traditional surgery that removes excess skin and less invasive body-contouring treatments, such as Morpheus8. 

Morpheus8 skin-tightening benefits

Morpheus8 combines microneedling and radiofrequency technology to contour and remodel your skin. It’s useful for skin issues such as acne scars and stretch marks, as well as for loose skin after weight loss. During the treatment, we use tiny needles to create micro-wounds in your skin. This process stimulates the production of collagen, elastin, and new, healthy skin cells. The device also suctions out lingering fat stores, leading to tighter skin and a sleeker overall physique.

Morpheus8 is especially useful for tauter skin in these areas:

Morpheus8 features more power and efficiency compared to other laser options, so your skin will appear smoother than it likely would following comparable treatments, such as traditional liposuction. And because Morpheus8 is only minimally invasive, you should be able to return to your usual daily activities a few days after treatment. You also won’t have to worry about significant scarring, infections, or other risks related to surgery.
