Loose skin refers to the loss of skin elasticity, which results in a sagging or drooping appearance. This is a common concern for many people as they age or after significant weight loss.
Loose skin can be caused by a variety of factors. The most common is aging, as over time the skin naturally loses collagen and elastin—proteins that keep the skin firm and pliable. Weight loss and fat atrophy can also lead to loose skin, as the skin may not be able to retract after being stretched for an extended period.
What are common symptoms of
- Sagging or drooping skin around the face, arms, and torso
- Decreased skin elasticity
- Increased appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
- Skin that appears to hang or drape
- Skin dimpling or uneven texture
- Discomfort or chafing (in some cases)
