« on: July 04, 2009, 05:49:52 AM »
hi guys,  a question for the doctors or anyone whop has knowledge about skin tightening.

Once you have your gyno operation if you opt not to have skin removed does weight training improve skin tightening? does weight training improve scar tissue/lumps?

thanks

Massive building of muscles is one way to fill a loose skin envelope.  The problem is, eventually over time, nobody can maintain such muscles.  When the muscles shrink, you get loose skin.  Bodybuilding does not help with scars nor lumps.  Scar Care and After Surgery Compression Garments are better options for the scars and helping tissues evolve.

Hope this helps,

Sometimes is does shrink depending on many factors.  Loose skin can take time before it shrinks after massive weight loss.  Sometimes from 6 to 18 months.  Being patient helps.  Once a patient is at a comfortable weight and the skin has stopped shrinking, then plastic surgery can help with refinement.
