While rapid weight loss has a number of benefits (increased energy levels, smaller clothing sizes, more body definition, etc.), a common side effect is loose skin. Loose, hanging skin occurs due to the the skin not having adequate time to contract after losing a significant amount of weight. To remove excess skin, surgical options such as liposuction, or non-surgical cosmetic treatments like microneedling or radiofrequency procedures like Morpheus8 may be required.
