When you gain weight, your skin has to stretch out to accommodate your extra fat. So it makes sense that when you shed large amounts of weight you’re often faced with loose skin. Additionally, if you lose this fat particularly quickly or if you don’t exercise while losing weight the excess skin has nowhere to go. If you’ve lost a lot of weight through diets or exercise, the chances are you may face the problem of loose skin. Skin is a very elastic organ and as you grow it stretches to cover your body. When you lose weight, your skin can shrink as well, especially the outer layer of the skin, the epidermis. Skin will often appear loose if you rapidly lose a large amount of weight. As you age, your skin loses elasticity, so loose skin after rapid weight loss might be. Your skin will get tighter as your body fat decreases, but this can take up to two years.
We at Tapovan provides Body contouring surgery if you lost massive amounts of weight and you’ve seen little to no change in your skin’s condition after you’ve kept your weight stable for over a year. Surgery is not always an option.
