That's a good question. I'm not sure what is the answer. I'll do some Googling and get back to you if I find an decent answer. You should email the people at Medifast as they probably could assist you..
I haven't lost enough weight to have very much excess skin yet, but it's definitely up there on my list of concerns as well. I think I'm gonna be one of the lucky ones because my skin is relatively elastic, although I do see some serious stretchmarks goin on.. one thing I have been trying to use religiously is.
Lotion, which is supposed to be very good at keeping your skin elastic. Also, I hear that.
To build some muscle to support that skin helps as well...
I am roughly twice as old as you, and after 155 pounds the only area which will require attention is my apron. I will be having.
To have it removed as soon after my 1 year anniversary as humanly possible...
I am 3 yrs post op. I lost 185 lbs after the.
And after 2 yrs I had a panniculectomy which is the removal of the abdominal apron. I had a big one while I was heavy and was left with the skin but it was deemed medically necessary and was paid for by insurance. They won't do it til you maintain your weight for at least a year, document any type of rashes or skin issues and how far it hangs down etc and most always is taken care of. Now you are quite young and your skin is more elastic and depending on where you carry your weight would be what determines where it might be a problem. Its the best decision I made having both surgeries...
I was worried that if I had an apron the insurance company wouldn't cover the procedure. I carry a ton of weight in my stomach, but also in my thighs and rear. I am hoping that given my age and that I "plan" on trying to keep it toned as I lose that there will not be a bunch of excess skin. Do you have any suggestions on vitamins or other methods of helping the elasticity?..
