  • Skin Laxity- Why It's Important and What You Need to know

    As someone who talks to many plastic surgeons, there's a term I keep hearing: skin laxity. I've interviewed several plastic surgeons on various topics ranging from full mommy makeovers to noninvasive laser skin tightening, and skin laxity comes up often.
