I’m getting gastric sleeve surgery hopefully in May. I’m sooooo worried about loose/excess skin afterwards. I’d love to hear from people who have gone through this.

      My mom had the sleeve. She lost 80lbs but no loose skin. People don’t seem to lose as much weight with the sleeve. They still lose quite a bit but it’s rarely enough to have a lot of extra skin.

      Exercise- that’s the best way to retract some of the skin.

      Following. I’m thinking of getting gastric sleeve as well.
