How to prevent sagging skin after gastric bypass?

Skin after a rapid and significant weight loss needs special care. The most important tip is to be patient. Sagging skin is a sign of lost fat, so it is a good symptom in general. Also, patients first of all should focus on weight loss, not the skin, and wait after the recovery is over. It happens that the skin tightens up on its own, it just needs some time to get used to the new reality. The most helpful in skin tightening is weight training. Once patients feel ready, they may start building muscles (e.g. do squats, lunges, planks, crunches, weight lifting up to 5 kilograms). Other tips include: using salt scrubs, staying hydrated, eating plenty of vegetables, opting for some cosmetic procedures. If the skin is still so loose that it causes people to feel unattractive, the last resort is a body lift surgery.
