Some people put a significant amount of effort into losing weight, only to find that they still aren't confident with their body. Unfortunately, in instances of extreme weight loss, many individuals are left with loose, sagging skin that makes them feel much bigger than they actually are.
In a recent interview with NBC News, Deborah Olmstead, who had weight loss surgery in 2001, explained how difficult this was for her to deal with.
"I was not really comfortable even looking at myself in the mirror, with all the excess flesh," Olmstead said. "You've done all this work, you've made this big, massive change that you see on the scale, but you don't necessarily see it in your clothing, or the way you feel about yourself."
While exercise can help eliminate the loose skin, the source reports that the most effective way to tighten the body up following extreme weight loss is to get plastic surgery. It's so effective that one Swiss doctor has reportedly said that it should be a routine part of any weight loss surgery. Recent data reveals that 21 percent of individuals who receive bariatric surgery undergo at least one body contouring procedure after.
