Hi Adrian,

Thankyou for the article. It helped me to restore confidence in my weight loss efforts. I have been fat up until the age of 16 220 pds. I lost much of it through only diet and am now age 30 AT 190 pds (5'7). I am gradually building muscle and properly cutting. I feel the "loose skin" around my stomach and feel the love handles. Even though one skin surgery doctor and one trainer said to me you will "Never" get rid of "that fat", I refuse to believe them. I can feel the thickness and jiggliness of the fat. It's thick like it has a lot of meat in it. Its all over my body really, like I look bulky and am meaty all over. It has to be fat. I will keep cutting and weightlifting until I get rid of it. I imagine it may take years.

Hello Adrian,

I am 5' 3 and I weigh 171. Though I sound very fat, I actually have alot of muscle and some fat to lose. At 145-150 I had a nice little size 5 body with curves and no belly or cellulite etc. I wasnt extremely toned but I could wear whatever I wanted and look great. So, based on that, I only need to lose another 20 pounds (of fat) or so. Anything below that, I'll look like a bobblehead. My problem is, Im addicted to a VLCD because I see losses of 5 pounds a week on the scale (I had got up to 190). My latest VLCD Ive been on for a 1 1/2 weeks. I started at 179 and now Im 171. I know that Im losing muscle but 2 pounds a week is just not motivating for me. I've been eating 500-700 cals per day while using an appetite suppressant and its been working however I dont believe Im gonna be happy with what my body looks like when I get to 150. I feel like Im getting flabby, so my 150 from back then wont look the same as it used to. How can I eat a minumum amount of calories and tone up? Ive tried eating more (1500-1600) to lose more and it just doesnt work for me. I gain and lose the same couple pounds back and forth. Im not skinny, so there is no possibility that my body is in dire straights. Im way over my BMI. I just feel I should be able to eat a lot less than those who are closer to their suggested body weight bc I have body fat to lose. Btw...I usually do an hour of walking on a treadmill at an incline of 10-12. Help me work this out in my mind and come up with a good solution please. I dont really know what will work for me other than eating low calories and working out alot. I would like to lose the next 10 pounds fast and the last 10 slow, so I can get rid of some flab. So, 20 pounds in 6-8 weeks.

July 03, 2014

Adrian Bryant

you'd be much better off going here

it seems like you are smart enough to know VLCD do not work long term SO WHY do them? also what's more motivating...

losing weight and keeping it off or losing 5 pounds a week on a VLCD knowing eventually you'll gain it all back but with the outlined plan I gave you...

you're probably going lose more than 2 pounds a week at first anyways

Hi adrian I have recently started my weight loss journey Im a female 5'9 24 of age I used to weigh 300 lbs I have gone down to 260 in 3 months.i was doing a lot of cardio and started off using dumbells for my arms but as I keep losing weight im getting scared of ending up with lose skin:( my arms are getting really flabby and so are my inner thighs and my butt. Wat can I do to keep losing weight and firming my body.i dont wanna stop myself from losing weight because of this . PLEASE HELP!!!

June 26, 2014

Adrian Bryant

the main thing is to keep losing weight but see this to firm up your arms

Keep your weight stable and after a year, your skin will rertact atleast halk because you are young. My neice had gastric bypass surgery and lost 150lbs. Her skin was hanging. That was 1 year ago. Now it's half way back to normal. Some areas she may have to have surgery on later like the boobs but the rest of her body looks good now. Exercise and stay hydrated with water. The water makes the skin bounce back.

Hi Adrian,

I'm 5'5 and over the last year and a half have lost about 53lbs. I'm currently 115lbs and look good when standing up, there is no appearance of loose skin. However when I lie on my side, or bend over I have the appearance of loose skin in my tummy area - it looks like thin wrinkly skin, and will also fold over. When I pinch my stomach, I can pinch about 2 inches, so there's definitely excess fat, but the fact that it wrinkles so much has me concerned. I wish I could post pics lol Thank you so much for all your great advice! :)

June 24, 2014

Jen

Also, I forgot to mention I'm 31 and upon further inspection I might only be able to pinch about 1.5 inches. What is the desired amount of fat to be able to pinch? Thank you so much! :)

it sounds like a normal belly and CONGRATS on losing 53 pounds!!

Hi Adrian,

I had some back problems, which lead to two stone weight gain. To keep my back strong I swim and I now do 3-4k of swimming 3 times per week. I have been doing this for the last 2 1/2 years.

Legs, arms etc all great but I have always had a flat bottom even at my heaviest. As I have toned up and developed a bit more bum shape, I have also developed this horrible new line of skin / saggy wrinkle under mu bottom cheeks. This has developed since exercising as I did not have this before. I do only swim due to a weak lower back, and use breast, backstroke and freestyle. I am 5ft 10" and 154Ibs. Thanks for any tips on how to get rid as it shows in my costume and underwear.

March 31, 2014

adrian bryant

are you currently 178 pounds? if so then it's probably loose fat or more fat you have to lose rather than loose skin

Hi,

I was able to lose 10 lbs and 3 clothes sizes. Although, I have lost weight and fat from my whole body, most of my remainder body fat is still located in my upper back and armpit. How should I exercise to get rid of this fatty area. I don't wear any strapless clothing. Thanks.

When I was 19 I lost almost 70lbs very quickly by just changing one thing in my diet. I stopped drinking pop. Now I have lose skin in my mid section.
I figured oh since i am so young it will retract. I am now 24 and it still looks the same. It is even to the point where it slightly hang over my belly button which gets infected due to no air getting in and moisture trapped. I don't know what else to do.

Constance Reader

The same thing happened to me after a similar amount of weight loss. I did 100-200 situps every day for a year...no change. My physician had to set me straight: there is no exercise for skin. Some people are fortunate to have highly elastic skin, but most do not. This is one of the taboo secrets of extensive weight loss, the rolls of loose skin. It can only be dealt with surgically.

December 16, 2013

Constance Reader

I should say, my physician had to set me straight lest I become dangerously anorexic, interpreting the loose skin as more weight to lose.

hi , put on 2 stone over 4 years , looking after parent. I am 5.5 went up to eleven and a half stone. never been that heavy ...sadly my mother died. since then I decided to take up tennis. got really taken with it and started going to a place where I could practice against wall , but what I did not realise was the I would come in from work and not wanting to eat before I trained . I would go out train , when I got back home i.e. 9pm I would not want to eat so have very little. so it was not unusual for me to go from breakfast to 9.pm without food. I did this over 2 month. and suddenly I found my skin had become very lose . and I have bat wings , which I never had before. if I turn my arm the skin is even lose on the inside where the elbow bends...reading various views , I think I cause it by not eating and just cardio exercise, it was nothing for me to do 2 hours straight , hitting the ball against the wall. did not do any toning . what I need to know is . have I condemned myself to having these bath wings and lose skin forever . or can I reverse the damage I have done . I am still losing weight over the last 2 month my weight has dropped 9 lbs. of course since I was not eating. I am in my fifties . can I ever be firm again . my arms are not big , just flabby . any hope , advise thanks so much

you'll need no surgery at all. the purpose of the article on this page is that more than likely you will end up with more FAT to lose and not loose skin

First off, love your site. I have used parts of it to help me research what I need to succeed. At my largest, I was 253lbs. Today, I am 162.4lbs.

You typically ask for other information, so I will just do up my stats here, quickly. 162.4lbs - 6' Tall - Male - 33 yrs old - BMI 22.0 - 13.5% Body Fat.

I still feel big. My larger muscles (chest, back, arms, legs) are showing well. My midsection, although I know the abs are there, does not show at all. Not sure if I have loose skin or a lot more fat around my midsection. It jiggles a bit but hangs kind of like a flap. So does my rear. When I lay on my side, it all stretches out quite flat onto the surface I am laying on and my hips and where my ribs start become very pronounced.

I have been working very hard at this but need some advice on what the heck I can do to fix that area. What do you think?

August 02, 2013

Adrian Bryant

you're okay but you want to reach that next level of below 10% to see your abs and to do that you will need to lose more fat with this advanced plan here

August 02, 2013

I've changed my relationship with food and am drinking plenty of water. I exercise with people like Jillian Michaels and Cassey Ho. But I'm a mom. I'm a very petite mom who gave birth to a 9 pound baby via c-section. There will be loose skin. Looks like I'm looking at surgery.
This information is helpful, though. Thank you.

I am 46 and have been sick for the last year and a half. During this time I was bed ridden. My body as a whole has taken a serious turn to being soft. No muscle tone at all. I also have some skin changes. I thought it was loose but after reading your description, I think I am more soft than I thought. I jiggle and have dimples. I have flesh hanging from my arms, grab flesh on my back, and my thighs fall to my knees. I have started to get some energy back and would like to know where to start.Can you give me some advice?

Hi, I am 5"3, weigh 58 kilos and have the proportions 36-28-38 now. I earlier weighed 67 kilos and after a lot of dance practise and healthy eating, i lost most of my stomach fat and thigh fat too.

However, my main problem area is flabby arms that look like batwings or whatever and the fattest circumference is around 12 inches. I am a 21 year old female by the way. What should i do?

June 02, 2013

Jennifer

In 2003 I had gastric bypass and my starting weight was 320lbs. I am now 132lbs and do not have the surgery restriction any longer (since 2005 due to severe complications). However, I have had the tummy and thighs done to take off extra skin I had complications on the tummy surgery and had severe swelling and it stretched out my stomach some and my legs have fallen. They look so bad that I can not wear shorts and the skin just swings per say. I hate the way I look except when I am fully clothed in pants and of course at least a 3/4 sleeve length. I am 46 and need someone to tell me what I can do now if anything besides having more surgery. I know I should actually loose a few more pounds since I am 5"3.5 and my BMI is 23.2. Please help. Thanks in advance.

before considering surgery just try to lose your last few pounds by using regular exercise with any 1 of the permanent weight loss plans here

May 20, 2013

But I guess one of my questions is, am is my body capable of getting rid of the sagging skin with the exercise and loosing those few pounds?

May 21, 2013

yes by exercising to lose weight you will firm up those areas preventing loose skin

It's so hard to not feel good in your skin. I had gained weight very quickly during puberty and my skin stretched out all over my body. I shot up 6 inches at the same time and developed breasts, and gained weight all at the same time. Throughout my adult life, I kept ultra-fit and active, but I always had loose skin from the original weight change. I tried to bulk up with muscle to fill it in as much as I could (and because I felt great when I worked out a lot). I ate the healthiest diet I could, and I couldn't lose any more fat. The soft stuff on my body was skin. I don't think that BMI is a great way to assess fitness because muscle is more dense than fat. I worked out for 1-2 hours a day. I went in for a needed breast reduction (and had asked about on skin excision, but decided not to do it because the surgery seemed so severe to me), but even though I thoroughly explained to the board certified plastic surgeon my skin situation (and I believed that being a surgeon for 25 years, he understood), he did liposuction on my lower body and suctioned out essential connective tissue. In other words, he treated my loose skin like it was excess fat (without my consent) because skin can look like fat: soft and squishy. I don't even have a buttock left to sit on. Now I'm in chronic excruciating pain, I'm disfigured and disabled. I couldn't wear shorts on the hiking trail when it was hot, (and I was a lifelong hiker), and it really limited my life. Surgery is intense stuff though, with intense risks. If you do it, make sure that your surgeon knows that you don't need any more fat removed via liposuction, which will only empty the epithelial tissues out even more. I used to use the loofa to try to tone the skin. It helped me feel great, but I didn't notice any big difference in skin tone. Loose skin is loose skin. It seems to me that either you bulk up from the inside to fill it, or have it removed in surgery, which you already know has risks. I wish I could make it better for you. My goal is to increase awareness of how damaging liposuction surgery can be. Good adipose tissue has a purpose in the body, and suctioning it out (without even measuring it first, for goodness sakes) is too risky for people. I've read hundreds of horror stories on line about people's ruined bodies (from liposuction), but it's not talked about directly in the media. Doctors make too much money off of people to allow the truth to get out. If you get skin excision surgery, take your time and make sure you get absolutely the best doctor you can who listens to you - someone you feel like you can trust your life with. If I had a do-over, I wouldn't get any surgery even though I had problems caused by 32 DDDD breasts. I lost my quality life and health to surgery, and I'm in staggering amounts of pain. Best.

Oisue

Heyy, I'm Oisue. Okay let's see... I'm 15 and weigh around 80-85 pounds maybe less and yes I'm seriously overly skinny an under weight but I do eat alot and yet I can't gain anything but I do eat my daily servings of fruits and veggies. Oh and im around 5'1-5'2 in height and still growing. Okay so the problem is I'm really self conscious about the amount of excess skin under my chin, I know it's not fat because I can pull it out to about 1 and a half inches and that's also around my neck and I just started being self conscious about it when my friends said they have nice defined jaw lines with no excess skin and fat but I did... How can I get rid of the excess skin with out plastic surgery or if I even can? Please help! Thank you :)

March 11, 2013

Katie

Hi Oisue,
This is a great sites for chin exercises. Just give it a google. Many don't realize, but the muscles around our necks are just as important to work as our abs and thighs. Give these a go, everyday, for about a month or so and see if you can tell the difference. If it would help, take a before and after pic. Also, I would try to avoid pulling the skin away from your neck. These tissues are sensitive and continuously pulling at it will quicken the lose of its elasticity.
Best of luck!

Hi!
I am 5ft nothing and had weighed 160 lbs. Through diet and exercise I managed to get down to 110. I lost weight and inches everywhere except my stomach. My back has trimmed down but my belly is still huge, preventing me from wearing tight shirts, dresses, bathing suits.... I continue to do cardio 5 days a week, lift weights 3 days a week and throw in pirates (1-3 days whatever I can manage) I continue to diet but am getting nowhere. Any suggestions?

March 05, 2013

lisa

Adrian I really need your help... I lost about 80 pounds through diet alone and now im left with a body i hate more then the ome I had before. I'm 5"3 115 pounds but I look Like I'm 150 pounds...my thighs are the worst part they are so flabby and I can literally pull fat up and off my leg...everything is so loose and jiggles. People say I'm skinny but it's all crap, I know I'm skinny fat to the Max. I've had alot of plastic surgery thinking that it was loose skin because no one told me that I was losing all my muscle and turning into a flab blob..I honestly feel so hopeless at this point. I worked so hard to lose that weight and all I have to show for it is flab everywhere and the saggiest boobs you've ever seen on a 24 year old...Is exercise what will help or did i just ruin my body beyond repair?

February 16, 2013

I think a lot of what you have been saying is crap because I get out and break a sweat every day with my kids and i still have a bunch of excess fat or what ever on my belly. i look descusting for a twenty five year old mom of four i cant get rid of it.i have a hernia and i do some sit up. i also do 50 push up and a hundred squats i am 5 3 and i am still to me a blob. i cant get rid of my stomach to save my life and i eat smaller portions don't touch junk food so how would i tighten up

hi, good morning adrian, im in a crisis problem right now. i feel my body is worse off than me being 12.5 stones almost 4months ago. i done some of the insanity workout and took acai berries supplements and totally changed my diet and am now 11stone or evn less, however my legs are slim but i carry all my weight still in my upper body especially my belly area i am basically a skinny- fat person. my belly constantly hangs over my jeans and i look so unhealthy with skinny bottom half and big flabby belly ( i wouldnt mind sending you a pic to see how bad it is). i really miss my curves so much but now my shape has gone so bad, ive lost my bottom and my hips and i now look like flatpack with a big flabby-belly (no shape). this has made me so insecure that i avoid going out much with friends and constantly wearing baggy clothes and tummy girdles at 25 years old which is so bad and i havent even had no kids yet. i would love to get my curves and confident back and loose this flabby belly and get toned again. unfortunately i know if i go on diet and use my treadmill ill loose more weight on my bottom half and look more terrible. please can i have advice on how to loose this belly fat and gain back weight via lean muscles instead of fat, so i can look more sexy and toned.

my sis recommends kettle training and weight classes but unsure how ill benefit from it.

i would really appreciate your help and advice.

Hey,I had my second and last baby 3.5 months ago. My first pregnancy wrecked my body because I had to be on bedrest for three weeks and I had a since deficiency. My babies are exactly 2 years apart. They were c sections, too. My stomach looks sad, saggy, and angry. The stretch.arks are super red, dry, and flaky all the time even with me using rosemary olive oil and coconut oil twice a day. I cannot do surgery for a while because I breastfeed, but I'm looking into thermage instead.

I am currently 5'3" and I'm guessing 135-140(I'm a size 5/6 but my boobs are a very large 34ddd). I am a dancer, I dance five days a week, pilates every day, and hiit three to four days a week. I still have a bit of weight to lose and this is the most intense I've ever worked out ever. How long should I wait to see if my skin will look better after more toning and clean eating? Or should I be looking now to get this fixed around the time my daughter turns 6 months?

I eat very lean meat, soy, mostly fruits and veggies, olive oil, and nuts and legumes that were purchased raw and unprocessed. I can't physically handle eating fast food or just food so I am always eating super clean. And my daughter is breastfeeding and is lactose intolerant.

5 years ago I was talked into doing a cleanse - I had never done one before.
I stayed on this for over 2 weeks and suffered light headedness. I then began to develop deep, severe stretch marks and eventually loose skin. Which hung from my stomach like a nearly empty stretched out bag ! When I lean forward - it is needless to say disgusting. My inner thighs are just as bad.
At the time of doing this cleanse I was a start weight of 170 lbs. I lost nearly 20 lbs on this cleanse - Clearly most of it was water, and lean muscle needed to support the subcotaneous fat. My skin wasn't able to retract and developed stretch marks very suddenly, from my belly button down, all over my hips, crotch groin and down to my inner thighs. All of the areas that we then affected by loose skin. Previous to this, I did not have any loose skin, or any stretch marks whatsoever on my stomach or legs.

While, I can feel that there is a significant amount of fat beneath some areas of this skin as I pinch it - Alot of it has also thinned out.

I regained weight as a result of pregnancy and am now 200 lbs. The thought of embarking on weight loss now is very petrifying because I fear getting loose skin again, or exacerbating the appearance of what I already have now which looks horrific.

I went to a plastic surgeon several years ago do discuss the loose skin, he wished for me to loose more weight before undergoing a procedure in order to have the best result possible.

Prior to getting pregnant - I was working with a personal trainer to develop lean muscle to hopefully tighten my stomach and thighs - to no real avail - But I realize now that I should have been doing more cardio at that time, for me to have potentially seen results in loose skin reduction.

I got very very few stretch marks during my pregnancy for my daughter, and surprisingly the skin retracted well - But is still loose from the previous condition of the skin - Which gave me some hope that despite the skin being stretch marked it may be able to retract some with weight loss ...

However the skin on my thighs seems very damaged, and I am concerned that with further weight loss that skin will not be able to retract !

I have read your article, as well as Ron Brown's "the myth of loose skin" and I have decided that I am going to embark on the weight loss journey and make an effort to acheive a low body fat percentage - If this does not make my loose skin look better, then I would at least be in the best shape possible in order to have it removed for the best surgical results.

This loose skin issue has been very distressing for me, as I am only 25 years old !!!

I would love to hear of someone who has actually had success in reducing some legitimate loose skin.

Thank you, this was very insightful. I was 260 I am now 230. I lost 30 lbs very quick by crash dieting. I got scared because I am very flabby in some areas. It's good to know I can sculpt those areas back to normal!

hello Heather.
I was 95 Kgs and i was struggeling to lose one kg. Now I lost about 20 Kgs in 2 months just by taking Victoza injections which is a dietetary treatment only for 3-6 months. It is used for diabetes issues but also for fast weight loss. My advice for you is to try it. I'm still loosing weight untill now. My doctor prescribed it and now i feel better.
Google it and good luck :)

I am 31 years old, and I had the gastric sleeve on May 7, 2012, I have currently lost 97 lbs. ( 40 lbs was lost before surgery) I now have hanging skin under my arms,my chin, and of course my belly ( not to mention my thighs look like cascading waterfalls) Is there anything I can do to try to loose some of this skin. I want to feel good about my weight loss, and I can't when this is what I see. Any tips would be much appreciated =)

remember, if it's truly loose skin only surgery can help but if it is not then exercise will help
