After losing a lot of weight, what can I do to get rid of all the extra loose skin that is sagging on my body?
Congratulations on losing the weight! Your health is the most important reason to be concerned about your weight and being at a healthy weight is one of the most important factors for your overall health. However, for many, appearance plays a major role in wanting to lose weight, and get back in good physical condition. Losing a lot of weight, however, can lead to loose and saggy skin around areas of the body where fat was most deposited – in particular the belly, arms and thighs.
There are things you can do to decrease your chances of loose and flabby skin from weight loss, but there are also some factors that are out of your control. Knowing this, however, will help you form a game plan to increase your success to avoid having too much extra loose skin after finally losing all of the weight.
Factors out of your control that affects how your skin responds:
Things you can control that will aid in skin recovery:
#1. Rate of weight loss. Losing weight with the plan to lose a safe, healthy amount of 1 to 2 pounds a week, gives excess skin time to rebound.
#2. What we eat. Foods high in nutrients and certain types of foods have been shown to aid in skin elasticity. Here are some foods that studies have found to influence skin elasticity:
#3. What we put on our skin. External skin care will also give skin the external moisture it needs to look its best. Dermatologists recommend using a hydrating moisturizer within 2 minutes of leaving the bath or shower to maximize the effects by allowing for more absorption during these times. You can also try massaging the loose skin to increase blood flow, and therefore, speed up the repair process.
If, following your weight loss, you have excess skin after you’ve tried the above and given it a good length of time to recover (at least two years), you may want to consider just loving yourself for the way you are and coming to peace with it, or if not, cosmetic surgery if the excess skin is bothering you.
Of course, I can’t leave this topic without saying that staying physically active is always going to help, and including aerobic conditioning with strength training will give you the best all-around body; physically, and appearance-wise.
