Is it better to do skin tightening before or after I lose weight?
Thank you for writing!! In general, it’s better to do any skin tightening with Thermage, Exilis or Ultherapy after you lose the weight or are within about 20 pounds of your target weight. Coolsculpting for body areas is very effective for fine tuning.
The reason is that you don’t want to waste your money! And you won’t be able to see accurately how much skin there is to tighten until you are close to your target. It might be that after weight loss, a different solution to any sagging that occurs would be better. Or it may be that one of the above would still be a good option – you just won’t know until later.
Good for you for tackling the extra weight and good wishes being sent your way.
