Postnatal Abdominal Skin

Tighten loose abdominal skin

Loose abdominal skin is droopy and flabby skin around the stomach area that often appears due to weight loss, ageing, or pregnancy. 

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. 

Loose abdominal skin is often caused by:

  • Weight gain and loss: the skin stretches and expands due to weight gain, such as during pregnancy. As a result, collagen and elastin fibres can become damaged and lose their ability to retract, leading to loose abdominal skin. When weight loss occurs rapidly, loose and droopy skin is often more significant because it takes time for the skin to repair itself. Those who are obese or overweight may be at higher risk of loose abdominal skin. 
  • Ageing: a natural part of the ageing process is the loss of collagen and elastin. As we age, the amount of collagen and elastin that our body produces significantly decreases. This causes our skin to become thinner, drier, and less firm, leading to loose skin on the body, including the stomach.

When the skin becomes overstretched due to weight gain and loss, it can cause loose abdominal skin.

Is loose abdominal skin painful?

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.

What are the treatment options for loose abdominal skin in Singapore?

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. 

At Artisan Wellness, we offer the following treatments for loose abdominal skin:

  • StimSure®: StimSure® is a non-invasive muscle-building and toning technology which combines TempSure skin tightening treatments with SculpSure technology for fat destruction. The body-sculpting treatment successfully gets rid of loose stomach skin and allows for a smaller waistline, tighter skin, and toned muscles. 
  • CFU È: CFU Èlife uses focused ultrasound technology, which penetrates deep within the tissue. This non-surgical procedure is safe and effective in damaging fat cells and firming the skin. The treatment is suitable for both men and women who have at least 3 cm of fat folds in the stomach. 
  • SculpSure: SculpSure targets both stubborn fat and loose excess skin, this non-invasive method uses lasers to destroy fat cells in the stomach that are naturally drained by your body’s lymphatic system. It utilises the lipolysis method to target and permanently get rid of fat.
