I'm losing weight now. The first 10 kg went quickly (three weeks). Now the skin on the arms and stomach looks so-so. She's very flabby. I am training, I am on a HEALTHY diet again, because before this first 10 kg I was eating 1000 kcal. So what to do with the skin? how to do it like before losing weight - filling, elastic? maybe someone knows, creams, wraps, etc.

Once skin has been stretched there are no creams or exercise that will change that.

Building muscle can help your appearance.

Removing the excess skin is usually the only solution.

No creams or exercise will change once the skin has been stretched. There is no possible way to make it look like before gaining weight. You could try led facial light therapy for the face's skin, which may work. But it's not going to work with the rest of the skin. Building muscle can help your appearance, but removing the excess skin is usually the only solution. It's a joint surgery nowadays. A plastic surgeon cuts the excess skin, and you remain with some bit of scars only. Or at least these are the only options I know.

SPF daily is number one. The main source of skin damage is photodamage. Therefore it's important to protect what you already have. Hydration is number two. It will appear less sagging and more firm with plump skin. Make a commitment to increase your daily Water intake, and establish a moisturizing routine. Any moisturizer will serve. dermal fillers chicago work by assisting the skin's regeneration of collagen, the substance that gives skin its suppleness and firmness. Starting now will pay off in the long run because, starting in your late 20s, you start to lose about 1% of your collagen per year.

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.

        My surgery was 10/19. #40 down since surgeon pre op visit. Getting close to end of soft foods. I think only issue going to regular foods is portion size. So far trying a new food every day. With no issues.
