[expand title="What happens to the excess skin after liposuction, will it hang?"]This depends on the elasticity of the skin, amount of skin excess and whether there are already stretch marks. The skin has to shrink down to the new size after liposuction. In general, skin with stretch marks has already lost it’s ability to shrink after liposuction. Similarly, the older the age, less is the ability of the skin to shrink.
Again if there have been a lot of weight swings the skin has less elasticity and therefore shrinks less.
With these many variables, it is clear that only after examination can the doctor predict if this skin will shrink or not
However, almost all skin types do shrink after liposuction, only the extent varies. The surgeon can also do some superficial suctioning just under the skin to enhance skin retraction.[/expand]
