    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?

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

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

    Check out NutraPlanet. Especially now with the 10% off your order through Sunday I believe. I've been using E and its a great product, when my new order gets in I will be incorporating flawless too.
