I’ve recently lost a lot of weight—and find that the skin on my face is sagging a bit. What can I do to fix this?
Losing weight is an incredible achievement. Loss of elasticity after weight loss is common—particularly as we get older—as skin cannot keep up with the sudden changes in body weight and may not be able to shrink back to the same size as your new body. This loss of elasticity can leave unsightly excess skin on the face, under the chin, under the arms, and on the body. A customized treatment plan is recommended after extreme weight loss. We use a combination of fillers and lasers to restore elasticity and plumpness to slack skin.
Someone told me that if I drink enough water, my skin will look much younger. Is this true?
It’s true that water—like a healthy diet—is extremely important for healthy, more youthful skin. Drinking enough water, in particular, can help improve the look of your skin by keeping it supple and plump. (Often, a loss of elasticity is a symptom of dehydration.) So whatever anti-aging treatments you try, be sure to drink enough water. Healthy beauty starts from the inside. However, be careful, as too much of anything can be unhealthy.
