Weight loss is a long journey. If you manage to lose a few tens of kilograms and radically change your figure, you usually need to solve another problem – flaccid skin. It occurs especially in people who lose too much or too fast and most commonly occurs around the abdomen, buttocks, arms, breasts. But everything has its solution. Removing flaccid skin is the cherry on top not only for all who have managed to lose weight.
Do you also have flaccid skin on your body and would like to give it a farewell? Order a free consultation at PRIMED Clinic and you will discuss your options with our specialist, options that are provided by modern surgery. We will rid you of flaccid skin!
The price of the procedure depends on the location of the treatment and the extent of the intervention. Order a non-binding consultation to learn the exact price.
How and why does flaccid skin exist?
If you lose weight slowly and eat the right way, have enough water and care for your skin with vitamins you may speed up the process of its regeneration. However, if you lose 30, 40 or more kilos it is improbable for the body to get rid of the excess skin on its own. Especially after a bariatric surgery, there is no other solution than surgical skin removal which is also called bodylifting.
Whom will benefit from flaccid skin removal?
Sometimes even women after pregnancy are interested in skin removal but they need to know that they will not plan another pregnancy. There are mothers who do not seem like they were pregnant, others carry this memory with a few excess kilograms and when they finally managed to lose those, there was excess skin left. If you do not plan another pregnancy, we can remove excess skin.
At PRIMED Clinic, of course, we also welcome patients suffering from the saggy skin for other reasons. Due to aging, it appears, for example, on the arms, and while on someone it is not so visible, on others it can be quite a problem.

When can bodylifting not be performed?
Contraindications may be various general disorders such as diabetes, epilepsy, etc., or extensive scars after injuries or previous surgery. Bodylifting cannot be performed on pregnant or breastfeeding women or smokers. Smokers have a more complicated recovery.
Petr's story: After weight loss I looked even worse
I visited PRIMED Clinic with a single wish – to remove the skin from the belly, ie bodylifting. In the end, we agreed to take the skin from the back, too, because there was a slight fold. It was all without complications, recovery was just long. Now I can finally enjoy my new body!

What is the preoperative preparation like?
The procedure is done in general anesthesia, therefore preoperative examination is necessary. A few weeks before surgery, you must quit smoking, stop using blood thinners and acetylsalicylic acid, and enzyme preparations. Six hours before surgery you should not eat, drink and definitely not smoke. All health complications, even those seemingly trite like flu, must be reported to us. The procedure can only be performed for healthy patients so that the body is able to cope with the changes best and quickly.
What will happen to my skin during the surgery?
The surgeon will cut in places where it will not be too visible, that is, in the natural creases of the body, the lower abdomen, etc. The skin stretches off, its excesses are removed, drains are introduced and the wound is sewn.
How long is the recovery after flaccid skin removal?
We will let you go home after 1-3 days and we definitely recommend having a vacation. You will be able to go to work after about 2 to 6 weeks. For about 2-3 months, you will need to wear elasticated sleeves. During this time you should avoid bodybuilding and other demanding physical activities.
