There’s nothing worse than working your way through a diet only to end up with skin that hangs like a curtain from a window.
While your fat cells shrink when that weight is lost, you still retain the same surface area.
Then there are those in the middle, where there’s room to prevent loose skin during weight loss as well as improve it afterwards.
There are a few ways that you can go about retaining or even increasing your muscle tissue during a diet. There’s a correlation between how quickly one loses weight and the amount of loose skin they end up with.

Franklin Santana, a 29-year-old who lives in the Bronx, had gastric bypass surgery in October 2011, and before the surgery, he weighed 395 pounds. I’m wearing a fat suit; I feel like I’m a thin person inside wearing a body that’s twice the size of mine.
Fantana had done his research before getting the surgery done, and he knew that he’d probably be saddled with “loose skin” after it was over.
Deborah Olmstead, who first had weight loss surgery done in 2001, knew to expect it, too; she just didn't know how awful it would make her feel.

You've done all this work, you've made this big, massive change that you see on the scale, but you don't necessarily see it in your clothing, or the way you feel about yourself. The most effective way to remove the excess skin is through cosmetic surgery, in one or more of an array of procedures known as body contouring. People who had weight-loss surgery, and subsequently had the excess skin removed, were less likely to gain weight back than those who had the surgery but did not undergo a body contouring procedure, according to a recent study published in the journal Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery.
Those who choose to have body contouring done usually pick the circumferential body lift: Doctors make an incision across the back, then around the flanks and abdomen, cutting away some of the excess skin and tightening the rest of it by suturing the incision back together. Stopping the painful chafing is important, and such a relief, say people who’ve had body contouring done.

The most important thing for us to find out is, whether we are dealing with fat or genuine loose skin.
Unfortunately the appearance can look rather daunting to the eye, because  body fat cells are trapped under that skin. If you have seen my last article on loose skin, you will notice the changes I have made in my appearance, which seem almost unbelievable – thats the power of weight lifting, diet and patience. The real goal for us now then, is to get down to low body fat percentages, so we can find truly identify what we are dealing with; loose skin or fat. If you follow these guidelines, then you will lose body fat and will  see your body for what it should naturally look like. A site that I used for  working out my daily food requirements is at a website called: If It Fits Your Macros. If you put most effort into these exercises, then anything else you include is entirely up to you. Not a large amount of cardio is necessary, but it would be wise to include one session weekly into your workouts.

If your in the gym, and focusing on those compound movements as you mentioned, whilst keeping nutrition in check. Two layers of tissue reside underneath your skin: adipose (or fat) followed by muscle tissue directly beneath. Remember, the phenomenon occurs when the underlying layers of tissue shrink under a much large surface area. When the deficit is reasonable and you’re losing up to a kilo per week, a majority of the weight lost is fat.
In your first year of resistance training, you may actually be able to build up to 10 kilos of muscle.
Hypertrophy training specialises in increasing the overall size and volume of your muscles, allowing your skin to cling tighter to the underlying tissue. Bodyweight routines are fine too, if that’s more of your jam, so long as they are implemented correctly. But there is evidence to suggest that loose skin issues can be improved by losing more fat.

It can happen when the weight is lost through diet and exercise, but it happens more often to weight-loss surgery patients. Jasmin Maldonado, a 36-year-old living in Brooklyn who lost 130 pounds after weight-loss surgery nearly a decade ago, says a daily routine of squats, sit-ups and pull-ups has made a difference. And those who do shed the extra skin generally fare better than those who don’t, both psychologically and physiologically.

Ali Modarressi of the University of Geneva in Switzerland, go so far as to argue that body contouring should be a routine part of bariatric surgery.
After the body contouring is done, patients routinely lose another 10 to 15 pounds of loose skin alone. With the popularity of Instagram, Pinterest, blogs, podcasts, and other social media platforms, there is more inspiration to lead a healthier lifestyle than ever before.
The more inspired people are getting to lose weight, the more effects of loose skin we are seeing.
If you’ve lost weight and purchased new clothing, you probably become more aware of the possibility of loose skin there and then. My upper body was thin, but there was a fold in the lower abdomen making me out of proportion. I’d lost a lot of weight, but I still had to wear larger size clothing than what I should have needed.
The more you have genetically, the more your body will want to fill them. (This does not mean we are destined to be fat. Which is why previous individuals weighing over 600 pounds, who lose half of their weight tend to have a shocking after effect.
Who is going to look better: The person who loses 200 pounds by lifting heavy weights with a high protein diet, all within a sensible time scale. If we can hit these low levels by putting the effort in, you could finally live your dreams of the size you pictured of being, prior to the weight loss.


But if you got this far in your weight loss goals already, then it shouldn’t be much of an issue. You will require a diet that is high in protein, low in fat, and with a moderate intake of carbohydrates – especially on training days. If you are committed to making the changes and getting the results, this stuff will become a lifestyle for you.

Both fat and muscle push up against the adjacent layer of skin, keeping it relatively taught before you lose weight. If muscle mass is lost in addition to fat, it creates an even larger void under your skin’s surface.
While a more aggressive deficit will result in faster weight loss, there’s a higher risk that this weight loss will come from muscle tissue, especially when done over a prolonged period of time. For example, perhaps folks without loose skin issues in the first place are more motivated to keep continuing their progress. Even if some areas have completely thinned out, excess body fat is likely to be stored in adjacent areas that contribute to the overall flabby condition.
Still, there’s comfort in knowing that if you have loose skin, some level of improvement is still under your control without the need for surgery.
She lost 130 pounds following gastric bypass surgery and was left with sagging skin on several areas of her body. People who lose a massive amount of weight are often surprised at how unhappy they still are with their bodies. With a slower, more gradual weight loss, it's easier for a person’s skin elasticity to sort of snap back into place, shrinking back down as the fat is lost.
Those who did not have any cosmetic procedures to remove the resulting excess skin ended up gaining back about 50 pounds, but those who did have body contouring done only gained back about 13 pounds. People go with the body lift because it makes the biggest difference in their appearance, doctors say; plus, it’s easier to talk their insurers into covering it, because the surgery has some real physiological benefits, in addition to the psychological improvements. Unless it feels paper thin, you can be almost certain you have some extra body fat to get rid of. Or the person who does a lot of cardio, eats less calories without considering the right nutrition?

I have also been a consumer of skin creams, however, I couldn’t tell if they work 100%, but I never avoided them, so perhaps they had some contribution. On the other hand, increasing lean tissue fills the area underneath the skin, keeping it taught. And if we have been working with the wrong plan, then today our job is to build ourselves back up.
