Losing a considerable amount of weight is an exceptional achievement that brings about many health benefits. However, many patients still face issues with self-image as they struggle with cosmetic issues, such as loose skin, which acts as an obstacle on their journey toward a truly complete transformation. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Rudy Coscia provides many cosmetic procedures that are ideal for reshaping, tightening, and restoring the body after weight loss. Ahead, explore the benefits of these procedures and how they can improve your appearance and confidence.


After weight loss, it is common to still find pockets of fat within the body, which give off a lumpy or flabby appearance. Even exercise and diet may not be enough to eliminate these stubborn fat deposits. Liposuction is a targeted procedure that is performed to remove these deposits and recontour the body. It is ideal in cases where the patient has a lot of fat in specific areas but maintains a stable weight. While it is not considered a weight loss procedure, liposuction may result in a slimmer, more toned appearance.

Arm Lift

Weight loss can change the appearance of the upper arms, and this location is often hard to tone up at any weight, especially after losing weight. Excess skin can make you appear larger than you are, and many patients benefit from an arm lift to correct this area. Also called brachioplasty, arm lift removes excess skin, tightens the underlying tissue, and creates a smooth contour, allowing patients to see toned arms that are in alignment with the rest of the body.

Breast Lift

Significant changes in the breast often follow weight fluctuations, including a drastic change in weight, resulting in sagging skin and stretched areolas. A breast lift may be a solution if you are interested in restoring the breasts to a more aesthetic position on the chest. Like other customized body contouring procedures, breast lift removes the extra skin that contributes to an unflattering appearance.

Complementary Procedures

In addition to these body sculpting treatments, Dr. Coscia also offers complimentary procedures that can help you achieve a comprehensive appearance. For example, if weight loss has not improved a double chin, Kybella can help reveal a more defined jawline. This FDA-approved treatment is injected into the submental area to dissolve fat, for a long-lasting and significant result.
