Q: Hello! Growing up I was always thin til I started ganging weight around the age of 8, I was chubby then chubby turned into fat and fat turned into obese. I mainly gain weight in my face and stomach. It took me up to sophomore year of high school to finally lose weight, in the summer. I came back junior year 40 lbs lighter. I developed a bit of an eating disorder and I continued to work out never seen any results I wanted. Today, my body is in better condition however I have a bit of loose skin near my midsection right below the waistline, it's minimal however I do not like it and my sides and stomach are fairly toned I wonder if there's a way to achieve full tone and remove the bit of loose skin without surgery?
