05/02/2007

Question:

I am a 52 year old woman who has undergo hisorectomy 4 years ago.It seems as time goes on my neck and lower faceis so loose I can.t think of a single thing to do for it .I try different creams and I walk alot ect...I also have rheumatoid arthritis in my right saliva gland which stetches my skin leftand right feels like an elastic.It probably dehydrates my skin altogether what can I do?

Answer:

This question has been forwarded by Gynecology:

There is no home/self-applied remedy that is very effective for this problem. A visit to a dermatologist/plastic surgeon will be helpful to learn about treatment options if you are interested in having treatment. Treatments cover a wide range and will depend on the status of the skin. These include but are not limited to fillers, lasers, and even surgical procedures.
