Our skin is made up of proteins such as collagen and elastin that keep it tight, strong, and firm. When there is a loss in elasticity, the loose skin hangs off the body. While loose skin can appear anywhere on the body, it is especially prominent around the stomach due to stubborn abdominal fat (link to service page) under the skin.
Symptoms of loose abdominal skin include:
If you notice any of the symptoms mentioned above, make an appointment with Artisan Wellness for an accurate diagnosis and bespoke treatment plan.
Loose abdominal skin can be painful. Excess skin can cause discomfort and pain as it is extra weight for your body to carry around. Skin folds may cause rashes and itching.
It may interfere with daily activities and impact your ability to wear smaller-sized clothes. It may also affect mental health due to the cosmetic concern of having loose skin.
Anyone who is obese, overweight, ageing, pregnant, or has recently undergone rapid weight loss may be at risk of loose abdominal skin in Singapore.
Although it is not a major health risk, it can cause pain and discomfort and may impact self-esteem and self-confidence.
Loose abdominal skin can be diagnosed by a healthcare professional through a visual examination. Your doctor may also ask for a detailed medical history or conduct a BMI (Body Mass Index) test.
There are several treatment options for loose abdominal skin, from collagen creams to muscle toning exercises, and body contouring. While muscle toning exercises and creams may help firm the skin around the stomach, non-invasive cosmetic and surgical procedures are often the most effective way to get rid of loose abdominal skin permanently.
