Loose Stomach Skin
Loose stomach skin results from lost elasticity and needs to be stimulated in order for new collagen to grow. Loose stomach skin often appears after rapid weight loss, pregnancy or as a natural consequence of aging.
Intensive abdominal exercise serves to tighten the rectus femoris muscles but doesn’t actually tighten the skin. Losing a small area of stomach fat actually makes the loose skin look worse.
Most common causes of loose stomach skin include:
- Smoking as it can lead to premature aging
- Sun exposure as it can affect your skin’s elasticity and collagen production
- Bad eating habits
- Not drinking enough water, which also helps keep your skin cells firm, plump, and prevents fluid retention
WHAT CAN BE DONE?
How to Get Rid of Loose Stomach Skin?
To tighten loose stomach skin, you have three options: invasive, non-invasive, and natural.
A tummy tuck is an example of an invasive treatment. Lasers and devices that emit energy to synthesize collagen are non-invasive options to tighten your loose stomach skin. Natural methods include eating right, resistance training, and massaging your stomach with specific oils to promote new collagen formation.
