Saggy skin is a condition where the skin loses its elasticity. When we are younger, the collagen and elastin inside the skin will neutrally stimulate and rejuvenate the skin. But as we start aging rapidly, the production of collagen and elastin slows down. Thus, the skin cannot be restored back to its original form, which then causes saggy skin. Saggy skin or excess skin can be frustrating and might impact a person’s self-esteem.
Saggy skin can happen during weight loss and pregnancy when the skin is being stretched out rapidly. Common places people experience saggy skin includes the face, stomach, neck, buttocks, arms and legs.
