Sculpt And Restore After
Let’s face it – losing weight is probably one of the hardest tasks there is for a person to accomplish, particularly after you reach a certain age.
Sometimes, even after you lose the weight, you are still stuck with a look that is less than desirable, such as excess, baggy skin. At Carlin Plastic Surgery, we can help you reach that elusive obtainable goal.

The skin is the largest organ in your body and forms a protective barrier against the environment.
The innermost layer of your skin consists of proteins, including collagen and elastin. Collagen, which makes up 80% of your skin’s structure, provides firmness and strength. Elastin provides elasticity and helps your skin stay tight. During weight gain, skin expands to make room for increased growth in the abdomen and other parts of the body.
Most overweight and obese people carry extra weight for years, often beginning as early as childhood or adolescence.When skin has been significantly stretched and remains that way for a long period of time, collagen and elastin fibers become damaged. As a result, they lose some of their ability to shrink with weight loss. Carlin Plastic Surgery can offer you options to combat loose, saggy skin.
