Loose skin from weight loss

  1. Loose skin from weight loss


    This is my first time trying to cut fat never had to while in sports. I started 8wks ago at 266lb at 18%BF and 41 1/2" waist(navel level). Now Im 248lbs. at 15%bf and my waist is down to 38". But I have some loose skin around my lower stomach prob bout a handful. Keeping in mind Im still at 15%bf and I wanna get to 9-10% is the loose skin gonna be a problem or will go away as I loose more fat or will it get worse?


  2. It depends on the severity. In some cases it will tighten up in time. It's this exact reason when I compete I make sure I am ahead of schedule to give my skin time to tighten up.

  3. Its not to bad I dont guess. But do you have any tips to help me get back tight?

  4. yeah vitamin K creams or stretch mark creams are supposed to help tighten skin too. There are also creams specifically marketed to those who lost weight fast and need to tighten skin. Also if you ever bulk back up in muscle you might fill that skin back up.

  5. Thanks bro..Would you happen to know any of the names of that cream for the quick weight loss?

  6. You can use a womens skin toning cream but time and minimal future weight fluctuations are the best way to fix problem.

    I heard purify body firm works well. You might want to talk to a botox specialist too. Botox is pretty safe and not that expensive and you'd probably only need a few treatments. That'd definitely give you quick tightening. You could botox and then use the cream as the botox starts to wear off.

  8. Thanks for your help guys. I guess I was over reacting. Ive lost 5 more lbs. and the loose skin has started to go away so I quess it was just excess fat

    Know what bro.... my dad was seriously obese and had gastric bypass and lost 175 lbs. in 6 months and had SERIOUS loose skin for about 6 months after that and then magically it all elasticized back into place.

  10. Nice bro! the body does some crazy **** sometime

  11. I believe Dsade said that a combo of eviscerate and flawless will help burn some fat and get rid of the loose skin.
