  • You can't. You will have to surgically remove it. A tummy tuck of sorts. And many insurances do to this procedure. Even medicaid will cover it. Having lots of loose skin can actually damage other skin depending on how much you have.

  • I've seen some of those wraps that look like they help.

  • do you work out? there is that and time...not sure how much loose skin you would have because of 30 lbs- probably not bad though

  • Strength training can make some difference, but time, age and genetics are really the biggest factors.
