    loose skin on lower abs?

    Hi Gent's,

    Any tips on minimising loose skin around the gut during a cut?

    I cut last year succesfully from over 20% down to about 14% ending up at 181lbs from 195.
    I was left with alot of loose skin over my lower abs, i guess due to lack of elasticity with age etc as this is the area i always carried excess fat.

    I've bulked a little back to around 195 again putting on some nice lean, i'm currently cutting back again aiming to hit 10-12% this time which i estimate i should hit around 185 ish.

    The loose skin is a balls though. Is there anything i can do to tighten the skin in this area or do i accept it as part and parcel???

    Thanks

    I wish I had an easy answer for you but I face the same problem and the more research I do the less hope I have of ever getting rid of this loose skin short of surgery.... <sigh>

    I'm a good bit older than you and I guess you might eventually shrink up and tighten your skin. I'm afraid at my age that's not going to happen.

    I guess the lesson here is to never get extra fat on your body or you'll pay for it later one way or another...

    Good job on the cut. I lost a lot of weight about 20 years ago (A LOT) around the same time I started lifting. There's no cure for loose skin as far as I know. It just goes with the territory. Arms, legs, back were easy to fix with muscle, but the lower abdominal area hasn't tightened up. Surgery seems to be the only option.

    LOL.... Yeah most of my loose ugly skin hides beneath the beltline but I still obsess over it. Seems that the better shape I git into, the more critical I am of the "details"... <sigh>

    That's liposuction to remove fat... I may be wrong but if you lose all the weight you need to and have sagging skin don't you need a "tuck" instead? Isn't that where they actually remove skin (and sometimes fat too) somewhat like a face lift?

    The liposuction proceedure only removes fat of which I and the OP have very little left, if I understand correctly.

    There was brief mention in the first video stating the technique can tighten skin as well. Didn't watch the 2nd vid.

    yes, this new way of lipo also tightens the skin, when fat is removed the skin tighens, after 3 to 6 months the skin is tight again. but the fat is removed 4ver, also you can even talk and move around or stand up as he does it, no scars at al..tummy tuck leaves big long gash scars...cost 2 to 4 thousand, depends om wat u have done, like chin 1500, abs 2400, legs 300o, hips 2300,ect...im may get it if i dont tighten up. im in nj avg cost 3500...not bad

    There is nothing inherent about this or any other liposuction technique that will tighten skin more so than losing weight will. In other words, if your skin tightens after losing body fat through dieting then it will do so after liposuction and vice-versa. If your skin isn't elastic enough to tighten after losing body fat then it will also fail to tighten regardless of what type of liposuction is performed.

    Video: ...."there is some evidence to suggest that heat may tighten the skin a little..."

    In other words, if enough heat is applied to injure the skin and cause scar tissue to form then yes, the result will be a tightening of the skin. But if that's the effect you're looking for, it would be a hell of a lot cheaper to take a clothes iron and burn your skin for the same result.

    The loose skin is a balls though. Is there anything i can do to tighten the skin in this area or do i accept it as part and parcel???

    Thanks


    I am most interested in how you ended up with a lot of loose skin by losing only 14 lbs. A cut is supposed to take place over a period whereby you lose maybe .5 a pound per week. Now, were you on a "cut," or a starvation diet?

    Congrats on the loss, as any weight loss is good. Give it time.

    Thanks man

    I was 240lbs at one stage then lost way too much weight the wrong way (endless cardio and bad diet), i ended up around 11stone looking miserable. that was about 10 years ago. i hit weights and got back playing rugby again. I really only started taking weight training some way seriously 2 years ago. The skin has been there since then.

    I aimed to loose 1-2lbs per week while cutting, the cut last year went from Jan to April so over 16 weeks I lost 14lbs or so. A little under 1lb per week. some weeks weight loss seems more than others even though my diet is strick, I only cut calorioes by 100 when things seem to slow.

    Man i've worked too hard in the gym to gain what i've gained in the last few years, the last thing i want to do is starve myself and waste it!!

    Thanks guys

    Yep was hoping i could tighten up another bit before posting pictures, at the moment its not too bad its when i get below 15% its when it starts to 'flap'. it might do me some good to get feedback on my progress anyhow.

    i'll bang one up tonight

    either way i'm not going to get hung up on it
    thanks again.

    I hear you man. I went from 260lbs to my current 172, and the first 70 lbs were done in a horrible fashion (1000 cals a day + cardio). I guess I read from your post that you had only dropped 14 lbs. Makes more sense now.
