    Unhappy Loose skin after VSG surgery-teen

    I’m planning on doing the VSG surgery soon and I’m concerned about the loose skin I’ll have later. I weigh 370 lbs and am 6 ft 2 in. I hope to lose 200 lbs within about a year or so, and I’m 17. Will loose skin eventually tighten, or will I most likely need plastic surgery? I plan on doing strength workouts and exercise to build muscle and minimize this.

    No way of knowing for sure, but age & time is definitely on your side as far as minimizing the chances of loose skin.

    But obesity vs. loose skin is not even a fair fight, I would take having loose skin any day of the week and twice on Sunday.
    All it takes is consistency, effort, proper nutrition, good programming, and TIME.
