What can I do about my loose skin under neck?

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.

Unsure...: Without detailed info on the onset, degree, duration, interval, progress, evolution, & resolution as well as the sequence of events of all symptoms + a direct look at, it is hard to offer right diagnosis. But, clinically, long-tight foreskin + overzealous physical stimulation for masturbation are often to be the culprit for what described. So, seek evaluation and counseling timely. ...Read more

That is fast.: Losing 7 pounds of fat a week is very rapid. I assume you had bariatric surgery? The amount of loose skin depends on the overall weight loss and the time the person was heavy for. Worry about your lifestyle for now. When you weight stabilizes, if you aren't happy with the skin see a board certified plastic surgeon. If you lose a great deal of weight (>100 lbs) excess skin is a good possibility. ...Read more
