What causes sagging skin?
Beneath your skin, the weight of fat and tissue on your muscles can over time lead to severe stretching and sagging. These factors cause your skin to lose its natural elasticity which directly contributes to sagging body and facial features. Other factors include (but are not limited to) smoking, aging, and sun damage. These factors also suggest signs that your skin is breaking down the presence of collagen which is needed to maintain healthy skin elasticity.
How we battle sagging and fatty skin:
In spite of diet and exercise, many people have stubborn pockets of fat that seem to be impossible to lose. A procedure known as body contouring can target these areas while helping patients achieve their desired look.
What is body contouring?

Non-invasive and minimally invasive body contouring treatments are simplified because there is no surgery.
