Will I have sagging skin, even if i lose weight slowly?

Will I have sagging skin, even if i lose weight slowly?

Depends: I find that loose saggy skin after surgery is more a reflection of how much weight one needs to lose versus how fast.

Younger individuals with good skin have less problems. If over 100 lb most likely will have some loose skin. ...Read more

I decided to lose weight. But my face started to lose fat while my belly and buttocks don't lose any fat. What can I do?

Some options...: Body sculpting sounds promising (; there are gimmicks ; diets that promise you their products can do this), but the only way to effectively spot-reduce unwanted tissue is to surgically remove it. The "pear" body type preferentially stores fat around the hips; "apples" store it around their waist. Lose 1 pound of fat for every 3500 calories you drop or exercise off, but you can't pick where--sorry. ...Read more
