Will I need plastic surgery due to weight loss after the LAP-BAND procedure?

Answer: 

Plastic surgery may be cosmetically used to remove excessive skin folds after you lose a significant amount of weight, but you should wait for at least 1-2 years after your LAP-BAND surgery to give your skin time to mold around your new body tissue.
