Question: I'm just wondering. I have a little extra skin from losing weight. I don't plan on getting it removed anytime soon, but I might someday several years from now. I know it'll probably cost a lot but about how much will it cost to get a little removed? It will? I didn't think it'd get better on its own. Jais, I think you get extra skin if you lose weight too fast.

Forget the 1st poster no it won't naturally tighten up if it's loose skin. If it's REAL loose skin like from losing a bunch of weight or lots of pregnancies, that never goes away without surgery-just like stretch marks unfortunately. That's why ppl with extreme weight loss have to have skin loss surgery or they have belly skin that hangs down to their knees and is painful to jump and move around a lot and very annoying. The cost depends on your location and your body, how much skin needs to be removed the the doctor. Since insurance won't cover it, you will have to pay for the actual surgery, the anesthesiologist, the medication during surgery, the medication after surgery and any lab tests and physicals to make sure you are healthy for surgery. Or maybe you just need a tummy tuck which will remove excess skin and tighten your tummy. If you go to a foreign country it's a lot cheaper. I'm not talking about some back alley fake doctor I mean a real good doctor in a real good hospital where costs are just way cheaper. You biggest expense would probably be the plane ticket. Anyway for the total cost you are probably looking at about $10,000. Which will vary. It could be more. Since surgery is expensive all plastic surgery clinics offer financing. If you have good credit you may be able to get it sooner than you think. Or if you can save up for a "down payment" then talk to the clinic and they will most likely work with you to set up a monthly payment schedule. I know exactly what ur talking about and it sucks. You can exercise 24 hours a day and LOOSE skin does not go away without a surgeon removing it.

The word "tone" has not definition in the context you used so I'm going to assume you mean "tighten". Also, you left out a crucial bit of information. Your age. When people lose substantial amounts of body fat, the skin may become loose. Whether the skin will tighten after fat loss will depend on many things. However, two predominate. 1. Stretching only - If the skin is loose because it was stretched but not beyond it's natural elasticity, it will tighten of its own accord over time. That process will happen in a few weeks to months. 2. New skin cells - If the skin was stretched beyond it's natural elasticity, it will have grown new skin cells in response to the tension. And, when new skin cells have been added, they will not go away when the fat is lost. In that case, the skin may remain loose. It may help you to appreciate the amount of new skin growth of which the body is capable if you go here --> http://www.circumstitions.com/Restore.ht… and compare the pictures of the before and after pictures of penis foreskin restoration. Fat distribution also plays a role in the loose skin problem. If the fat loss was predominantly in one area (eg: the waist area), the skin will have stretched more than if the fat loss was more uniformly distributed over the body. People who have lost most of the fat from one area will be more likely to have residual loose skin than those who lost a small amount of fat from a wide area. In most cases of nominal (not extreme) fat loss, both 1. and 2. may apply. In other words, the skin may tighten somewhat and remain slightly looser. Because elasticity decreases with age, in older people it is more likely the skin will remain loose for a given amount of fat loss. And, of course, the greater the fat loss, the more the skin has been stretched and the less likely it will be to return to the same tightness it had prior to the fat gain. As a crude rule of thumb, a young person who loses only <30% of their weight will not have loose skin. Those losing 30-60% of their weight will likely have some loose skin. And those who lose >60% will probably have undesirable loose skin. Loose skin which does not resolve naturally cannot be tightened. It must be removed surgically. There are no wraps, creams, spa treatments, drugs, chemicals, herbals, etc. that can make skin shrink. However, adding muscle to increase body volume can help tighten the skin. If you are young, as you seem to be, and have lost about 30% of your weight, you will probably not have much loose skin after a few weeks. It may take a bit longer depending on many things including genetics, diet, changes in lean tissue mass (muscle), how long the excess fat was maintained, etc. For more about post-fat loss skin, go here --> http://www.livestrong.com/loose-skin-aft… .However, bear in mind that fact that most of those things said in the Mayo Clinic articles refer to very small amounts of amelioration. For example, losing fat slowly will help prevent loose skin but not by much. It is always important to be aware of whether the information you are given is qualitative or quantitative. Good luck and good health!!

You already know never to be able to skip breakfast, but it's also crucial that you eat within an hour of waking to improve your metabolism.

It really depends on where you live and the doctor you choose. The surgery will cost the same though no matter how much you take off...price goes by procedure, not amount they remove. I know you said that you aren't going to do it right now but take the time to find a great doctor because there are some pretty bad stories out there. Make sure you reach your fitness goal before looking into it. The doctor may ask you to anyway so you can look the way you want after the surgery and not have a repeat surgery. Good luck. ...wait, if you didn't loose massive weight you can tighten it up. Try pilates...it's working for me. Weight resistance will help too.

I found the book to be very informative and easy to read. I've lost 17 pounds in 12 days, I'm just concerned that I'm losing too much weight, too quickly. I will admit I haven't followed the guide exactly. I'm not sticking perfectly to the listed foods and meal plans (but mostly) and doing very little exercise, but the weight keeps flying off. It clearly works and if I'd followed it exactly I think it would scare the living daylights out of me because of the amount that I'd lose. So thanks again for the information. I've never purchased anything like this before because they are usually full of trash, but 3WD has been a pleasant surprise. Get started today!

Include at least 10 to 15 grams involving protein, which suppresses ghrelin, a new hormone that stimulates your desire for food. Include eggs, which are which may control hunger.

Yep!!! ABSOLUTELY!!!! It's called Therametics, developed by a world renown dermatologist, Dr. Brian Fuller, here in OKC, OK. I have Lupus and Scleroderma, and I cannot tell you what a difference this has made in my life!!! I am 47 yrs. old, and get ID'd when ordering or buying a bottle of wine!!! This is a brand new product, available only for about 4 months, now. It's active ingredient is called Therasol (TM) It is THE ONLY PRODUCT to ACTUALLY PENETRATE the dermal barrier and to go internal!! ALL other products simply FLOAT on top if your skin, and make it feel softer for a little while. THIS DOES NOT!!! IT GOES DEEEEP w/in the skin"s -multi-layers and ACTUALLY CORRECTS THE SKIN'S TEXTURE AND EVENS OUT SKIN TONE!!! I CANNOT say ENOUGH!!! If you'd like more info. on what this product line has to offer, or to order, (best of all, it is INEXPENSIVE!!!) go to www.therametics.com, and my name is Rebecca Bayless - I am a certified sales rep. for this line - something I said that I'd NEVER do!!!
