Stomach skin can become loose for many reasons. Luckily, there are many treatments available to tighten your unwanted loose stomach skin. Discover more.
Just like skin on other areas of the body, dramatic weight loss, age and in particular pregnancy can result in unwanted loose skin on and around the stomach area. Whilst traditionally there were limited non-surgical options for patients to explore, in recent times there has been an influx of people opting for skin tightening laser to effectively combat excess loose skin on the stomach.
Why do I have loose skin on my stomach?
Loose skin on the stomach can be the result of one or multiple reasons and whilst each individual will have their own specifics, the most common root causes are listed below.
During pregnancy, your stomach swells significantly to support the growth of your baby (or babies) over the course of several months. Due to the rapid rate of stomach growth, it is completely normal that you may have some loose skin on your stomach after you give birth and whilst this can reduce over time, it may not return to how it was pre-pregnancy.
2) Weight Loss
Similar to post-pregnancy, losing a large amount of weight can sometimes result in excess loose skin on stomach and other areas of the body also. When you gain weight, the skin expands to accommodate the extra growth, however sometimes this can damage the collagen and elastin fibers in the process hence the loose skin.
As with many other areas of the body, sometimes your stomach skin can lose its elasticity and result in saggy belly skin. Whilst it may not have any direct health impacts, the excess skin can be extremely uncomfortable and, in some cases, even impact your self-esteem.

Invasive Skin Tightening Treatments for the Stomach
The Traditional Tummy Tuck
A well-known contender when thinking of how to tighten stomach skin, the traditional tummy tuck is a common surgical procedure used to dramatically reduce the amount of loose skin on stomach. It’s worth noting that whilst the results are immediate, there is a longer amount of downtime needed as well as the risk of scarring and / or other considerable side effects.
The Mini Tummy Tuck
Whilst the traditional tummy tuck targets loose skin across the entire stomach area, the mini tummy tuck is a surgical procedure that only focuses on the lower abdomen. For those wondering how to tighten stomach skin, it can be an attractive choice particularly when considering how to tighten loose skin on stomach after pregnancy. However, as with the traditional tummy tuck, the recovery time and pain is significantly greater than laser or radiofrequency tightening treatments.
How to Tighten Loose Skin on your Stomach Without Laser or Surgery
Increase Your Vitamin C and Healthy Fats Consumption
These nutrient-rich foods can help mobilise your body into producing collagen that helps tighten loose skin on the stomach. Whilst you can consume a high level of citrus fruits with natural sources of Vitamin C, there are also daily supplements available to help stimulate the collagen production process.
Carry Out Medium-High Resistance Training
For those with a minimal amount of excess loose skin, workouts that aid in building muscle mass around the abdominal area can be a great option when considering how to tighten belly skin. Resistance training, in particular, can significantly support in reducing the appearance of loose skin.
Stomach Skin Massages and Scrubs
Frequent massages on the stomach area with natural oils can help stimulate collagen production and also slightly reduce the appearance of loose skin on the stomach.
