Skin After Weight Loss. How to Keep Elasticity?

Posted on: February 22, 2022

Many girls after losing weight are faced with sagging and sagging skin . Unfortunately, this defect is often found in weight loss. Therefore, if you are only going to lose weight, we recommend that you study this issue in more detail in order to more competently approach the process.

Why does skin sag after losing weight?

Our skin is quite elastic, and always adapts to our changes. However, if a person has been overweight for years and decides to lose weight, the skin will not be able to take the desired shape in a short time. Some fabrics are 90% likely to sag.

  • The first reason for sagging skin is sudden weight loss. The skin has too little time to adapt to new parameters. This problem is also often faced by pregnant women who rapidly lose weight during childbirth.
  • The second factor that affects the condition of our skin is age. After 25 years, the production of collagen and elastin, the molecules that are responsible for tissue elasticity, decreases. Therefore, the older a person is, the higher the likelihood of having “extra skin” after losing weight.
  • The third, no less important factor is lifestyle. An unhealthy lifestyle greatly reduces the production of collagen and elastin, and also clogs the body.
  • Lack of macro and micro elements in the process of losing weight, due to which the skin cannot restore its previous structure.
  • Wrong approach to weight loss: a person does strength training, but neglects stretching. And just it also helps to increase the elasticity of the skin. Or he goes in for sports, but does not do cosmetic procedures.

The greater the initial weight, the more carefully you need to approach the process of losing weight in order to avoid sagging and sagging.

How to lose weight?

Proper weight loss is a complex system that involves:

  • full-fledged physical activity during which strength, endurance, flexibility and balance are trained
  • proper nutrition selected by a nutritionist
  • a complex of cosmetic procedures aimed at improving skin tone (massages, electroporation)
  • an adequate goal in which weight loss is achieved within a reasonable time.

Extreme diets that allow you to lose a lot of weight in a short time, as a rule, have a very bad effect on health. Especially on the gastrointestinal tract and the cardiovascular system. Therefore, it is better not to experiment with health.

Why is sagging skin dangerous?

In addition to an ugly appearance, sagging skin tissue is very dangerous to health. Excess skin can weigh quite impressively, which creates additional stress on the body. For example, excess skin on the abdomen overloads the internal organs and muscles of the back.

Also, this defect does not allow you to wear things in your size. You can have 42 rubles, but due to excess fabrics, wear 46. This is more of an inconvenience than a problem. Sagging tissues pose the most serious problem for health, as they create additional stress on the joints, muscles and internal organs. That is why it is advisable to think over the process in such a way as to avoid negative consequences even before the start of losing weight.

In some cases, it is impossible to get rid of excess skin with the help of procedures and sports. After rapid weight loss, many have to turn to a plastic surgeon.

How to tighten the skin after weight loss?

  1. Body: Most often, after losing weight, the skin sags on the abdomen, knees, inner thighs. The muscles of these parts of the body are mostly very weakly involved during training. Therefore, it will take more time and effort to remove them.

Among the procedures we recommend:

  • Vacuum massage : an effective classic for cellulite correction and fat reduction. If desired, the procedure can be done at home;
  • Lymphatic drainage massage : to increase blood flow and cleanse the skin of toxins, as well as activate metabolic processes in the epidermis.
  • Wraps: what do pregnant women do after childbirth? That’s right, they put on a bandage so that the stomach comes into shape faster. In the process of losing weight, this tool can also be used.

Also, at home, it is recommended to do baths with sea salt to cleanse the skin of toxins, and a contrast shower to enhance microcurrent.

  1. Face: On the face, most often sagging skin remains in the chin and cheek area. To prevent these areas from sagging, it is recommended to do the following procedures in the process of losing weight:
  • Microcurrent therapy, electroporation to improve skin tone, cleanse toxins and toxins
  • Phonophoresis to saturate the skin with nutrients, as well as increase its tone
  • Massages to improve tone and shape the face

The same procedures will help to lose weight in the face , and get rid of sagging skin. Also, we recommend doing massages at home using various devices (for example, 3d rollers), as well as face-building.

The elasticity of the skin of the face is also affected by lifestyle. So, for example, smokers have very weak muscles in the region of the nasolabial triangle. After losing weight, this area usually sags a lot. If more radical facelift methods are needed, try a thread lift. This procedure involves tightening the tissues with the help of special threads that “pull” the epidermis in the right direction.

Most often, the skin after weight loss strongly sags in people with deformation and mixed type of aging.

About cheekbones

Very often, girls start the process of losing weight in order to show their cheekbones. To do this, you need to do gymnastics for the face, lose weight, and also adjust the diet so that there are no edema (they can interfere with the manifestation of the cheekbones).

But, in the issue of the manifestation of cheekbones, genetics plays a very important role. You may not have cheekbones with a normal physique and weight, since you have genetically “chubby cheeks”. It’s embarrassing, but honest.

Also, some girls remove Bish’s lumps in order to show their cheekbones. The effect is achieved instantly, but still it is a plastic surgery.

Sagging skin after losing weight negatively affects not only the aesthetics of the body, but also the general state of health. Therefore, the process of losing weight must be thought out in such a way as to avoid this effect. Or, if you have already encountered a problem, make an effort to get rid of loose skin and find a beautiful toned body.
