While you achieve your weight goals with diet and exercise, losing massive weight within a short time frame can mean your skin has no time to shrink. Sagging, loose skin is often the unwanted side effect of weight loss.
Many people who follow a healthy lifestyle find getting rid of stubborn fat pockets a huge challenge. These fat pockets can develop in the upper arms, legs, belly, under the chin or thighs, and are linked to hormonal and genetic causes.
Cellulite is another frustrating skin problem for many people. Also called “cottage-cheese skin,” “orange-peel skin,” or “hail damage,” the dimpled and lumpy appearance on the skin can be distressing.
This can be caused when accumulated fat pockets push against the skin and the fibrous connective cords that connect the skin to the muscles tend to pull down. The uneven distribution of tissue, fat, and muscle can cause the dimpled appearance.
Lack of a skin protein called collagen can play a key role in cellulite development. Collagen is made in the deeper skin layers and maintains the skin’s texture and tightness. The aging process, stress, and illnesses can reduce the levels of collagen, leading to wrinkles, sagging of the skin, and cellulite.
Body contouring is a perfect solution that addresses concerns of cellulite, sagging skin, and persistent fat pockets.
