What Options Do I Have For Loose Skin Under My Chin After Weightloss
Depends...: On whether the skin excess is just under the chin or throughout the neck and if it is associated with excess fat as well.

I would like to know is a direct submentoplasty would work for me? I am a 50 year old active male. Workout 4 or 5 days a week. I lost 50lbs about 2 1/2 years ago and was left with loose skin under my chin that bothers me greatly!
The: The best method to address your neck/chin loose skin depends a lot on your anatomy. If you have excess fat deposits in the area liposuction (or direct excision) may help. The concern would be that the overlying skin may not contract appopriately in the area to redrape it, though. This aspects depends on your overall skin elasticity. A neck lift can be done to furterh tighten the tissues in the neck area and if there is an excess of skin that needs to be removed a facelift may also be indicated. With patients who have quite a bit of weight loss like you did there is often an excess of skin that ends up hanging there under the chin.See 2 more doctor answers

I've been losing weight and am worried about loose skin especially around my abdomen and thighs. Is there a way to reduce it?
Maybe there is...: Weight loss that is gradual is better than rapid weight loss. Skin that does not have stretch marks usually will shrink to match your new shape. If after loosing the extra weight if there is loose skin you can consult a Plastic Surgeon to see if removal is possible. Excess skin removal does leave scars and only you can decide if the scar looks better than the loose skin.See 1 more doctor answer
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.
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.See 1 more doctor answer

I am 23, I weigh 285lbs also female, how do I avoid saggy/loose skin during and after weightloss? My goal weight for now is 185
Depends on age.: After a certain period of time the elasticity and recoil of the skin is not the same. Therefore eventually at some age (20s, 30s, 40s - depending on skin type and quality of skin) the skin does not shrink with wait loss.See 1 more doctor answer
Abdominoplasty: Patients usually seek abdominoplasty for abdominal wall laxity. The ideal patient is within normal limits for his BMI, has a moderate amount of excess of skin and fat, and has a mild diastasis of the rectus muscles. Patients who seek body contouring following massive weight loss have their own set of criteria. They need to be evaluated by a plastic surgeon for the appropriate procedure.
Not without help: Most loose skin will only be made tighter by gaining weight or having the skin removed. Some people may also do well with cellulaze. This is the only laser that can treat the skin from underneath and significantly tighten skin. Obviously there are limits but a trained plastic surgeon can explain it to you. I have been very impressed with the results I have seen.
I'm 23, 5'5, 160lbs, how to tighten a post pregnancy pouch and lose 25lbs quickly? I'm scared that just losing weight will cause loose skin..
Breastfeeding to use: Use breastfeeding to burn up stored calories. One can get her pre-pregnancy weight back, and work out with weights to get in great shape again, but cannot truly get her "pre-pregnancy" body back. That is because a pre-pregnancy body is a different stage in a woman's life than a post-pregnancy body. Also, one's age is older, and some NORMAL permanent changes have occurred after a having a baby.
