Like many of my patients, maybe you have lost weight recently in an effort to boost your health and lower your risk for serious diseases like diabetes and heart disease. And like my patients, you may not have been prepared for the loose skin that can occur along with weight loss – especially if you’re over age 40! Take heart, though, as there are several things you can do to tighten up your skin again that I’d like to tell you about.
Lose The Weight AND The Loose Skin
In your 20’s you could lose 20-30 lbs in a month and your skin could bounce back fairly easily. As we get older, past the age of 40, and especially past age 50, skin loses some of its elasticity and ability to bounce back as quickly as it once did. We shouldn’t try to lose a significant amount of weight quickly – 1-2 lbs a week is best to help our skin re-adjust itself.
