Earlier this week they talked about weightloss and all the loose skin that can be left afterwards and whether NHS should pay for the removal of it following gastric bypass as a part of treatment.
Then there were questions, what about those who actually lose the weight on their own.
What do people think about this subject in general?
Also, what other alternatives are there to deal with the loose skin? Slower weightloss helps the skin shrink back gradually as one loses weight but as we are getting older and the skin loses its elasticity, it's not all going to shrink back to way it was.
Nobody ever talks about this. Probably because it would put people off from wanting to lose the weight in the first place.
Are there any other options but surgery?
I know that by building muscle, something happens in the collagen ratio and it actually helps the process but not sure how that works in theory.
