Whar can I do about butt wasting?

May 14, 2008

I have noticed in the last couple of years that the flesh of my butt has vanished and I am left with loose hanging skin.

Looking at myself depresses me, but what is even worse is pain I have when I sit down for any amount of time.

My doctor says it's just a sign of aging (I'm 38) and I just have to deal with it.

What is the latest cutting edge thinking about this problem? Is there a doctor anywhere who could help me?

I'm pretty desperate to find an answer that will work and is not toxic.

Can you help me?

I hope this information helps. Feel free to email me again here after reading the page!
