Facial Plastic Surgery Can Eliminate Sagging Skin after Weight Loss
NBC’s Biggest Loser has inspired thousands of Americans to put down the potato chips, lace up their Nikes and tackle their own weight problems. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC), one in every 3 American adults is obese. Most of us could stand to lose a lot more than just a pound or two. Our ability to identify with the weekly struggles of the Biggest Loser contestants as they fight to sweat off the pounds may be what makes the show so compelling.
We are drawn into the heart-wrenching stories of these people who have been fighting the battle of the bulge often since they were children. We cheer them on during the weekly challenges. We celebrate their successes and feel their pain when they fail. Interest in the program is so high that many health clubs have started running their own Biggest Loser programs, forming teams, holding motivational workout sessions, engaging in challenges and offering incentives to encourage their members to ramp up the exercise and peel off the pounds. And many of people are signing up and posting weight loss figures that would make any Biggest Loser team proud.
There is no down side here. Losing excess weight, increasing exercise and eating a healthier diet are proven winners when it comes to improving health. But there is something viewers don’t see on the Biggest Loser episodes that happens to your face and body when you experience significant or sudden weight loss. It’s a solvable problem, but one that can be disheartening to weight losers and diminish the pleasure and achievement they feel in accomplishing their weight-loss goal. We are talking about sagging skin and wrinkles that remain after significant weight loss.
