[QUOTE=Iron Fireling;1308200There is a theory, though, that if you lose enough fat from under the skin, that the skin WILL shrink back. However, you have to manage to lose all the fat that's sitting in the flap (sounds lovely, yeah??!). I would imagine that would require a pretty low BF% (I read somewhere 12% which is really lean for a woman, particularly... somewhere else I read about 15%).
I'm giving it a really good shot, but I think ultimately I'll end up getting surgery to fix it...[/QUOTE]
Mark had a post linking to another blog, maybe? It does make sense that your body would not continue to support skin it didn't need. Skin is not some dead thing that just hangs there. It's a living organ that requires support. I have some rumply skin on my belly after 2 overweight pregnancys, despite never having a C-section. It seems to be slowly diminishing.
My SIL carried twins and delivered by emergency C-section, but her Dr put the persistent extra skin down to twins plus not having time to do the OCD version of a C-section incision. I think every case is going to be different. Some Drs are just going to be better at their job (handiwork), sadly.
