Does the skin become loose and flabby after liposuction?

All techniques of liposuction tighten the skin.  This tightening will be more significant where the skin is thin, such as in the neck and arms.  Elsewhere, where the skin is heavier, it will generally be sufficient to take up the extra laxity due to the removal of fat.  In areas where the skin is already hanging in folds, such as the hanging bottom or abdominal apron, these folds tend to remain. However, where there are folds of heavy fat over the lower back, liposuction can make a very significant improvement. In extreme cases of fat removal, where the skin is loose, such as the abdominal apron, or where there has been significant weight loss, a combination of liposuction and skin excision may be the better option.
