There are many different reasons why you may have saggy skin hanging around your midriff area. Massive weight loss and pregnancy are two of the leading causes of this excess skin, but there are many other factors as well. No matter how it got there in the first place, people want to know how to get rid of it.
Having a quality exercise routine might be able to help you a little bit, but eliminating your saggy skin completely will require more intervention. A tummy tuck is a safe and effective procedure and will pair very well with your exercise routine. Not only will you be able to say good riddance to your unattractive excess belly skin right away, but if you make a conscious choice to dedicate yourself to the maintenance of a healthy lifestyle every day, you will be able to keep your flat and firm physique for a lifetime.
Exercise Won’t Remove Your Excess Saggy Midriff Skin
Many men and women who live in the area say they have exercised as much as they possibly can, but can’t seem to eliminate the saggy skin around their midriff. I am never surprised to hear this, simply because the skin is not designed to bounce back to its normal size or become firm and taut after it has been stretched for years and years. It’s never a bad to exercise, but you can’t keep doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. Exercising can only do so much for your problems with saggy midriff skin, and that’s when it is time to consider getting a tummy tuck. One way to describe the condition is by comparing it to a hot air balloon. When a hot air balloon is full, it is stretched to capacity but as it deflates it loses its original shape and definition which is similar to what happens to your skin after pregnancy or a significant weight loss. In addition to cardio, mixing in some weight training could help reduce excess belly skin to some degree. Again, muscle gain won’t eliminate your saggy skin, but gaining muscle after a tummy tuck can help keep it off.
