Is a facelift required after massive weight loss?

Sagging skin may occur after massive weight loss, such as after bariatric surgery. As a result, a facelift is commonly considered following significant weight loss. While some skin tightening may occur naturally, there is often the concern of excess skin. In addition to abdominoplasty (i.e. tummy tuck) to improve the waistline, a facelift can help improve the jawline and neck.

Facelift surgeons typically advise waiting a year after bariatric surgery before considering a facelift. Your body weight should be stable before proceeding with any plastic surgery.
