I gained a LOT of weight with my first child....over 100lbs!!!!! I have since lost alot of it well...from 230 down to 170. I have SOOOO MUCH loose saggy belly skin! Nothing seems to make it go away! Will I have to get a tummy tuck? Or what can help me get rid of it? I had someone suggest I wrap my belly with plastic wrap???

  • how will preparation h make your skin go back tight? I don't know but maybe those body wrap treatments plus exercise and everything and creams that help you gain back elasticity. but I've seen on tv where doctors have said no matter how much you work out, if you have lots of sagging skin from major weight loss, it will not go back and you might have to have a tummy tuck or something
