No amount of exercise can tackle the loose skin that often remains after significant or sudden weight loss, according to online newspaper American Health and Beauty. Patients who have worked hard to lose weight can often be left disappointed with their new bodies, when the skin on their stomachs, thighs, buttocks, arms, and face does not spring tightly back into place. Folds of skin can occur on any area of the body where large amounts of fatty tissue have been lost, and cosmetic surgery is often the only way to rid the body of these and create a smooth, taut appearance. On American television show The Doctors, plastic surgeon Dr Drew Ordon described how, after fat is lost, nothing remains to fill the skin out and surgical procedures such as tummy tucks, and body lifts such as thigh lifts, and breast lifts, can help to achieve the body people want.
