Congrats on the weight loss - that’s a big step you made for a healthier lifestyle. Now, to get the body to match your confidence, I recommend a tummy tuck! That procedure will remove the excess skin from your abdomen. That will help re-establish the smooth contour of your body. I recommend meeting with a board-certified plastic surgeon in your area, but I believe a tummy tuck will give you the beach body you dream of!

Best of luck!

Excess Skin After Major Weight Loss

Thank you for including images with your question and congratulations on your massive weight loss. Numerous options are available to address the excess of skin that results from massive weight loss. A lower body lift would be best to remove the excess skin. In combination of an upper arm lift and a tummy tuck, you could find your best results. Best of luck!
