Agreed! 18 year old skin is much more elastic than us old ladies at menopause and later! If you want to help it along, strength training in the areas where it's loose and collagen peptides... and take pictures now. In a year compare them. Then tell us how that loose skin is doing !

My GF who got sleeve gastrectomy 5 years ago had awful loose skin, but didn't have money for PS. She is 5 yrs older than me. Now the only skin that is loose on her is her "batwings" and that isn't so bad anymore that she wants PS anymore. She used to say that she "rolled up" her boobs to put in her bra. She walks and does pilates for strength training. She's my role model.

One year after hitting goal, not one year from surgery. You may not feel it right now, but you have great skin, and it may surprise you!! Good luck!!

Agree - I lost a lot of weight twice in my twenties and my skin bounced back pretty well both times. However when I lost weight following VSG in my thirties - it was a very different story so I'm on a plastics journey now. If you're only 18, I would wait and see. You might be surprised. I actually did find the skin tightening creams - as well as time - to be pretty helpful too.

Try looking abroad. I've been doing a lot of homework on this and I found a name of a Dr. in a forum here from a couple of years ago, Dr. Kelvin Esubio in the Dominican Republic. I've been cyber stalking his IG and reviews for months and after I lose it all I'm def going to him! The lady on the forum said she got her skin removal and BBL done (possibly boobs too, idk) for around 6k, but you have to consider travel expenses etc. too.

He's certified by the American Society for Aesthetic plastic surgery which you can read about here:

Dunno how you feel about Medical Tourism, but it's worth considering IMO.
