How do I tighten loose skin on my stomach after triplets?

How do I tighten loose skin on my stomach after triplets?

Abdominoplasty!: The only real answer here (after triplets) is abdominoplasty (tummy tuck). This can remove the extra skin, but more importantly, repair the stretched muscles of your abdominal wall. This is best after your family is complete (i bet it is now!) and may need to wait until the triplets are old enough that you can recover appropriately after the procedure. You should not lift over ten pounds for 6 wks. ...Read more

My stomach has a lil loose skin would diet and cardio help lose it if not what types of exercises will help with that?

Maybe: Improving diet and exercise are always a good idea. The ability of one's skin to recover after being stretched is an independent quality of the skin, and related to age, gender, and overall health. Loose skin on the abdomen after pregnancy is a common concern. Although it can recover with time and weight loss, it often requires surgical removal. ...Read more

Does drinking more water help with loose skin? Are there any exercises I could do to help tighten it up?

Does drinking more water help with loose skin? Are there any exercises I could do to help tighten it up?

Loose skin: Drinking water is generally good for you & maintains your hydration which can certainly help with the overall appearance of your skin. It likely won't help significant skin laxity which is better served by skin tightening devices such as lasers, ultrasound, radiofrequency etc. It depends on the area & amount of laxity but surgery is sometimes also needed to remove excess skin (eg. After wt loss). ...Read more

I have loose skin on my upper arms. I am 60 years old. Is it possible to tighten this area with exercises? If so, what kind? I am a 60 year-old female. I recently lost a significant amount of weight, and, as a result, I have "batwings" under my upper arms

I have loose skin on my upper arms. I am 60 years old. Is it possible to tighten this area with exercises? If so, what kind? I am a 60 year-old female. I recently lost a significant amount of weight, and, as a result, I have "batwings" under my upper arms

Arm Lift: Congratulations on significant weight loss. Patients who have “bat wings” under the upper arms benefit from arm lifting surgery (brachioplasty). This operation involves directly removing excess skin and adipose tissue of the upper arms, thereby improving the contour. Of course, the trade-off associated with the operation is the presence of a scar; optimal positioning of the scar is important. ...Read more

My lower stomach slightly bulges. Is this from loose skin or just stomach fat?

My lower stomach slightly bulges. Is this from loose skin or just stomach fat?

Belly Bulge: Usually the lower belly bulges because below the belly button, there is less internal support for the abdominal wall. This makes the internal organ bulge slightly and is often more pronounced following pregnancy. It can be corrected with tightening of the fascia during abdominoplasty surgery. Weight loss can help as well as exercises such as crunches and leg lifts. ...Read more

Will my loose skin tighten after weight loss? How long will it take? Please help me docs!

Depends: On how elastic your skin is, your age, and how overweight you were and how much you lost. However, NEVER base your weight loss on your skin. If you need to lose a certain amount of weight, see what you look like when done, and decide if you need further interventions such as surgery with your doctor. It's still better to lose the weight then worry about the extra skin. ...Read more

How to 68kg to 45 kg in 2 months. I am 16 year old and really need to lose weight. And even tighten my loose skin without surgeries?

How to 68kg to 45 kg in 2 months. I am 16 year old and really need to lose weight. And even tighten my loose skin without surgeries?

Diet and Exercise: At 16 the best option for weight loss is diet and exercise. You can work with a personal trainer or nutritionist who can help you and keep you accountable. Depending on height, 68kg isn't that overweight, 45 is probably too thin unless you're under 155cm. 23kg weight loss in 2 months is an unreasonable goal and would be unhealthy, you shouldn't focus on the number.
