I had gastric bypass surgery ten yrs ago now have loose skin and hanging fat no one will help me get rid of it because of no insurance no help im mess?
Save: Even with insurance there is no guarantee of coverage. Often what the patient feels is medically necessary and what insurance companies feel differ and the physician is caught in the middle. If it is a priority then you could save money slowly and if you have hanging fat perhaps a little more weight loss would be in order. ...Read more
I just had my son and have a belly hanging like loose skin. I exercise, diet, watch my calorie intake, and take weight loss pills. Nothing is helping. What do I do?
Skin laxity?: Give yourself time! The skin might regain some tone over time. The pregnancy process causes a lot of stretch in the skin and separates the rectus muscles. Diet and exercise cannot correct all of this. Once one has completed their family, an abdominoplasty might be beneficial to rid one of the skin excess and bring the muscles back together. ...Read more

Elasticity: Once your skin has been stretched past its innate elasticity, only plastic surgery can tighten loose skin. Other treatments, such as rf (radio frequency), laser, or creams and lotions only provide minimal improvements. If your skin is youthful and you are not obese, your skin still has a unique degree of elasticity that would allow some degree of return to normal, as after pregnancy. ...Read more

Yes: Surgical removal to use of certain lasers and radiofrequency devices will provide a tightening effect. Lesser effects come from muscle building to increase mass, creams, injections (fillers and fat grafting), etc. Do offer some filling options to improve the appearance of loose skin. ...Read more
Not much short of...: All loose skin that develops is as a result of loss of fibrous tissue within the skin layers and some fat replacing muscle tissue--aging of this organ. The lose of fibrous tissue= the droop. Exercising the muscles that are droopy might help a bit. Then there are retinol products, certain facial massage brushes, and certain cosmetic creams may help the appearance. But permanent change is surgical. ...Read more
Don't know: How much weight have you lost? Typically, the younger an individual, the more elastic their skin is. Also, the rapidity in which you gained the weight can frequently "tear" the skin and result in stretch marks. If you have stretch marks, this typically means that you have poor elasticity. There are no ointments, potions or creams that can restore elasticity. ...Read more
Supportive garments: Unfortunately there is no magic sure for getting skin to shrink. This is the reason that eyelid tucks (witch hazel), (witch hazel) face lifts, breast lifts and tummy tucks (witch hazel) are still performed. Wearing supportive garment and waiting at least 4 months once you have achieved a stable weight is probably the best course of action. ...Read more
Maybe: The only way to know whether your skin will tighten with weight loss is to see whether it contracts as you slowly loose weight on a healthy nutritional plan that involves daily exercise. ...Read more
Skin Tightening: There are a number of noninvasive treatments as well as surgical options that exist. From skin tightening lasers, radio-frequency, and ultrasound devices, to surgical neck lifting techniques.

On whether the skin excess is just under the chin or throughout the neck and if it is associated with excess fat as well. Very rarely, the skin can be removed with a small transverse incision in the crease under the chin, but more often liposuction and/or a facelift (which always includes a necklift) is required.
Good luck! ...Read more
Magic wand: If we had a magic wand that could tighten skin, we would not need to use surgery to perform tummy tucks (witch hazel), (witch hazel) face lifts, breast lifts, thigh lifts, eyelid tucks (witch hazel) and many other operations. Time is your best friend to assess skin contraction. ...Read more
The hoy grail..: That is the holy grail of plastic surgery. How do you make skin shrink or more elastic or less aged without surgery. No one knows for sure. While some lasers may help, this is genrally only a fraction of what is needed. Stretch marks can occur in very thin I dividualized and not always related to weight gain and loss. So until then lose weight slowly and consistently. ...Read more
Shrinking skin: This is extremely difficult and would likely best be treated with a dermolipectomy procedure (excising the skin). "shrinking technologies" such as radiofrequency (i.e., thermage) or high frequency ultrasound (liposonix) rarely achieve the degree of skin contraction that is required. ...Read more
Yes and no: depends: This depends on several factors such as pattern of weight loss, skin laxity, age, solar elastosis, prior weight fluctuations, etc, . However the overall benefits of weight loss on your overall health far outweigh the cosmetic benefits or risks of skin laxity so go for it or consider a program of medically supervised weight loss. ...Read more
Liposuction results: Typically liposuction is performed in areas where the surgeon expects the skin will have good elasticity and retract without the need for excising the loose skin. There are exceptions, where the physician may plan to perform liposuction followed by skin excision in a separate surgery in an area where a patient may have loose skin from weight loss, but still a significant amount of excess fat. ...Read more
Maybe: It would depend on the amount, quality, and location of the loose skin. If your skin is loose from weight loss, or your have poor elasticity surgery is really probably the most effective solution. There are some skin tightening treatments that do not require surgery such as SkinTyte, Thermage, or Exilis that can have some benefit. Generally the effect is much much less that surgical removal. ...Read more
Lose it gradually: & allow your natural skin elasticity to recover tone. Of course, if you lose massive amounts of weight, loose skin will always result, dependent upon each person's individual genetics of skin elasticity and amount of weight loss, not to mention age and location on body. Bottom line: you cannot exercise skin, and skin tone cannot recover past a certain point. Beyond that you need plastic surgery! ...Read more
