As you gain weight, the skin stretches to accommodate the extra fat. When you loose weight the skin does not shrink. This can result in patients who loose a lot of excess weight having loose skin.
The amount of loose skin you will have post-gastric bypass surgery depends on the elasticity of your skin and the amount of muscle in your body.
After gastric bypass surgery, starting to exercise and build muscle mass immediately can reduce the amount of loose skin, however many patients undergo a tummy tuck surgery to remove excess skin from the abdominal gastric region.
