  • That can definitely happen, especially if your weight loss was quick or if your skin just doesn't have a lot of elasticity. The good news is exercise and time can help it firm back up. You can also do some body wraps, they won't last forever and don't do the dehydration kinds, but they can help rehydrate the skin. Choose mineral or seamud ones, NOT ones with caffeine or ones that make you exercise or be wrapped up in tightly bound things like bandages or saran wrap.

  • No. I lost 67 pounds. I think the key is to lose it gradually.

  • I lost some additional weight after having my daughter and the only place I really sagged was on my face! So now I have really noticeable wrinkles!

  • No...I think the key is to make sure you are getting plenty of fruits and greens. These provide all nutrients your body needs and thus help to restore your body. I might not have the saggy skin but still have lots of stretch marls - sunbathing has helped immensely.

  • mine sagged horribly. i lost 75lbs after my son and i needed a tummy tuck so bad. i gained it back with my second though and have yet to lose any of it. i know that my arms and my stomach will never be the same again and it makes me sad!

  • The sad thing yes. I have lost allot of weight 30+ and still losing. And all the extra skin is still there... Wish I had the money to get rid of it but that is a dream.
