Dear Dr. Pataki,
I am 21 years old. I used to be 95 kg and after losing weight I am now 63 kg. Fortunately, I have been keeping this weight for months now. Unfortunately, striaes appeared on my skin on my abdomen and on my breasts. I would like to know if these could be removed surgically?
Striaes – that are the separation of tissues – can be faded (laser, mesotherapy, autologous fat filling, dermabrasion), but sadly the only solution for a complete disappearance is resecting them. This is a common procedure used in abdominoplasty to remove the nascent excess skin. This is quite probable with the mentioned weight loss.
I would recommend you to consult with a plastic surgeon to find out more about the possible procedures.
All the best,
plastic surgeon, Head of Premium Plastic Surgery
